Op Ed in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

An op-ed I authored with my colleague Katharine Hayhoe of Texas Tech be found here.

There is also an accompanying editorial here. Oddly, it continues their support for allowing TXU to build 11 new coal-fired power plants. But they also advocate for a carbon tax. Combining these two positions seems problematic to me: with a carbon tax in place, the coal plants don't make nearly as much sense as they do without a tax. In fact, they might make no sense at all, when considering the entire 50-year life of the plant.
