UN Tells Texas to Ditch Oil and Gas to Remain Prosperous

Not only are Democrats going after Big Oil over climate change, but the United Nations says the lone star state needs to change its ways.

"If Texas wants to prosperous in 2050 or 2070, Texas will have to diversify its economy," said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

No surprise Texas told the UN to go "pound sand."

Rey Trevino III with Pecos Country Operating says there are much bigger polluters in the world than just the state of Texas. So he questions why an international group is going after a specific state.

"Why are we concerned about Texas when we know China's emissions are worst than the entire United States? And we have the UN trying to tell Texas what to do?"

He says the UN ought to mind its Ps and Qs.

"During World War II, Texas along provided 25 percent of the oil and gas used during the war itself."

The goal of next month's UN summit in Scotland is to cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030.

He calls it par for the course with Biden in the White House, pointing to soaring gas prices that could hit $150 a barrel.

"The highest it was in 2014 at about $120 a barrel," he says. "Wouldn't you know it the man that's now president was vice president when gas prices and oil prices reached the highest they had ever been on record. Is that a coincidence?"
