Since President Obama took office in 2009, Texas has sued the Environmental Protection Agency 22 times. The state has only won four of those cases, each concerning air quality and climate change policy. This comes at a time when only 14 percent of Texans reject the idea of global warming, according to a poll by Yale University. These same findings show that more than half of the state’s population feels that something should be done at both the federal and state levels to remedy global warming. This discrepancy in numbers shines a light on how Texas politicians obstruct sensible climate policy.
