Neglecting Texas' coast is a Category 5 mistake
Neglecting Texas' coast is a Category 5 mistake
Hurricane protection requires action at all levels of government

By Jerry Patterson, via Texas Tribune | May 17, 2016


"Nobody forced those people to move to the coast."
"No protection money for Big Oil's refineries that destroy the environment!"

As both a former coastal Texas senator and as land commissioner, I've
heard clueless Texans make comments like these for over 20 years.
Regrettably, some members of Congress and the Legislature have
themselves expressed similar thoughts.


But those of us who grew up in the Houston-Galveston area, as
well as other points along the 370-mile Texas coast, have long known of
the vulnerability of coastal communities and infrastructure.

Scientific Consensus is an Oxymoron
