Texas Will Suffer Full Brunt of Climate Change

Everything is bigger in Texas, but this isn't good news. The BBC reports:
Climate change is real, man made, and it is hitting almost every part of the US. And it is going to get a lot worse.
One of the areas that's likely to feel the full effects of warming is the second largest state: Texas.
Everything, as we all know, is bigger under the lone star.
Thanks to its huge size and coastline, Texas is likely to suffer a wider range of negative climate effects than any other state in the Union.
The report predicts more heat, more dry spells and more extreme weather events in a place that suffered record temperatures in 2011.
The resulting drought is still being felt in many parts.
Of course, Texas leaders are scoffing in public. Privately, they are very, very worried about the future.

It's very similar to their attitude toward marijuana. In public they denounce marijuana, but in private, they are big users of the drug.
