ABSTRACT
The article discusses the concern on the decline in natural gas and oil resources in Texas due to climatic changes. It mentions that Texas is the largest producer of wind energy in the U.S. as well as offer expertise in advanced biofuels, geothermal energy and low-carbon technology. It highlights the change in climate due to the emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases by humans.
