Five Ways Climate Change Threatens Energy in Texas

BY MICHAEL MARKS
The Department of Energy released a report recently looking at how climate change and extreme weather could make our power supplies more vulnerable. Given that it’s the nation’s leader in energy production, Texas was prominently featured.
The report looks at both current and future threats to the energy sector from climate change. There are three major trends, it says:
- Air and water temperatures are increasing
- Water availability is decreasing in certain regions
- Storms, instances of flooding, and sea levels are increasing in frequency and intensity
I meant to write a post ridiculing this back then, but got distracted with other things in need of ridicule and never got back to it until now.
