The letter, filed yesterday in a regulatory procedure, highlights the FCC’s failure to consider the established and newly emerging science on RF radiation and its adverse impacts on human health, particularly for vulnerable populations including children and pregnant women.

New drilling rigs were far and few between, while most of the pumpjacks were idle, their horsehead noses no longer dipping down to pull crude from the ground. Towering above them, stretching into the distance, wind turbines spun by the hundreds, generating electricity for Texas’ big cities.

Then I stopped in Lamesa, where Southern Power maintains 410,000 photovoltaic cells generating enough power for 26,000 homes. That’s when it struck me, Texas’s premier oilfield may have a lot of oil, but it has limitless wind and sunlight. Where would you place your bet?
