Gem of the day

Here's two facts that illustrate the absurd divide between energy sources and government planning around infrastructure in the US:

1. Texas is in the midst of a terrible drought which is projected to last for at least the next decade, alongside declining water reserves and a growing population.

2. The gas industry in Texas uses a couple million gallons of freshwater to frack a single well. That's water that, sadly enough, can't be recycled for human consumption because of the additives it contains.

If only there was an unlimited energy solution available that didn't suck up water, and ways to convince people of the collective potential of using a little less water every day.

For the state with the greatest proportion of wind power in the nation, this is just sad.
