Summertime reading: Achieving a Sustainable Texas

We've curated posts from the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation's current blogging initiative, "Achieving a Sustainable Texas," a collection of opinions from the foundation and a number of the foundation's grantees.

George Mitchell, who was credited with pioneering the economic extraction of shale gas, supported, funded, and advocated environmental sustainability and sustainability science issues since the early 1970s, including the funding of the National Academy of Sciences' first-ever study on sustainability science.

We hope you'll make these and future posts part of your summertime reading. "Achieving a Sustainable Texas" will continue throughout Fall 2015.
