According to PolitiFact Texas, State Representative Wayne Smith’s pants are on fire. PolitiFact Texas recently analyzed a statement regarding global climate change by Mr. Smith, a Republican from Baytown.
During floor discussion of his greenhouse gas permitting bill, HB 788, he said, “Science has not shown greenhouse gases to be a problem.” Then Smith went on to say, “There’s no need to regulate greenhouse gases.” Well, Politifact Texas disagreed. They throughly researched Mr. Smith’s statements and found them to be totally false, or “pants on fire” as they put it.
