Clean Energy: A Healthy, Affordable Solution for Texas

Adrian Shelley, Director, Texas office of Public Citizen
Public Citizen Uploaded by Lisa Brenskelle
Join Adrian Shelley of Public Citizen for a discussion of the many benefits of clean energy for Texans and the Texas economy. Air pollution is responsible for 17,000 deaths in Texas every year. Healthy people need clean air, and that means Texas needs clean energy. Texans also have a right to clean, reliable, resilient, affordable energy. Adrian will discuss the relationship between public health, air pollution, and the energy industry, including what Texas is doing in response to the energy disaster that occurred during Winter Storm Uri, and how the fossil fuel economy is impacted by the clean energy transition.
