Environment Texas decries “cynical” ploy to attack clean energy while ignoring market impacts of subsidies for dirtier energy

AUSTIN - Wind and solar power receive half the state subsidies that other forms of energy do — yet they’re the sole focus of a bill up in the Texas Senate that’s seemingly designed to cast doubt on these increasingly important sources of clean electricity in Texas.

Many of us are eager to build a greener, healthier world, one powered solely by clean, renewable energy. But with the lack of leadership at the state and federal level, we have to be creative in advancing that vision. Thankfully many cities, colleges and other institutions are making the switch to wind and solar power, but more needs to be done. Join us for a webinar to learn how you can help.

UT Faculty for 100% Renewable Energy

As faculty and staff concerned about the warming of the earth that is changing our climate, we urge our nation's universities to make a rapid and steady shift away fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy. To avoid the worst effects of climate change, we need nothing less than a commitment to meeting all our energy needs with abundant, pollution-free renewable energy by no later than 2050.
