Natural Resources

Striking a Balance Between Growth and Conservation

Overview

Rapid population growth threatens to severely strain our natural resources in Texas, driving up the demand for water and land, and increasing air emissions. The impacts of our changing climate make each of these challenges more severe.

Policymakers have an obligation to preserve the natural heritage of this state by promoting the sustainable use of our natural resources to accomplish both progress and preservation, so that our state maintains both its competitive advantages and its quality of life.

The challenge facing Texas is to ensure the long-term viability of our natural resources without stunting the economic expansion that our growing state demands.
