I want Texas to maintain its role as the energy capital of the world for years to come. I will expand the energy jobs we create in Texas and ensure we are a leader in the fight against climate change.
Texas is uniquely positioned to lead the energy expansion movement.
Knowing that we will lose our leadership in oil and gas if we don’t work seriously to remove all emissions from the industry, I will aggressively enforce pollution laws and create jobs in emission reduction strategies like carbon capture and storage.
I will add to the hundreds of thousands of oil and gas jobs in Texas by pursuing the Texas labor movement’s Texas Climate Jobs Project, which aims to create 1.1 million high-paying, high-quality jobs over the next 25 years by investing in geothermal power generation, hydrogen-fueled energy, offshore wind, solar generation, electric vehicles, energy efficiency, and more.
Texas is uniquely positioned to lead the energy expansion movement. We already have the workforce, technology, and experience to get this done. We just need the right leadership.
