More fossil fuel plants will lead to more climate-related disasters

Re: July 7 article, “Abbott orders utility commission to shore up Texas power grid, targets renewable energy.”

Current headlines are full of reports of climate-related disasters — fires in California, 120-plus degree heat in Canada, and on and on.

Yet, Gov. Abbott calls for more natural gas and coal power plants, which will only make climate problems worse.

Past Republican governors, Bush and Perry, led the way for Texas’ becoming a leader in wind energy.

Clean energy is not just a Democratic thing. It’s a human thing.
