Monday on The Chad Hasty Show Texas Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian joined the program from the KFYO studio to discuss the state of energy in Texas, and the lack of labor force available to staff the energy industries. Christian also addressed the fallacy of energy-induced global warming/climate change, that is being forced on the American public.

I say we [in the energy industries] need to...start just bellying-up and being proud of what we're doing, and put on our big boy and girl britches, and start telling the truth to the public, instead of letting this fallacy of the Al Gore movement take control of the country.

Christian was in Lubbock for an address at the Energy Law Lecture Series at Texas Tech University.
