Climate Breadcrumb: Amarillo

A brief encounter with TX. One of the chief climate deniers, no doubt influenced by Big Oil. But TX is actually on the forefront of wind and solar.

Bad news for cyclists sometimes, but the wind blows strongly in Texas, especially the Panhandle where we are. Today it was our friend. And it definitely is Texas’ friend. The state is by far the biggest producer of wind power. Enough in 2019 to power 6 million homes.

How ironic that Texas also seems to be home to the largest number of climate change deniers per square mile.
