Autumn Reading: Achieving a Sustainable Texas

We've curated a number of posts from the Cynthia and George Mitchell Foundation's current blogging initiative, "Achieving a Sustainable Texas," a collection of opinions from the foundation and foundation 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 reading this fall. "Achieving a Sustainable Texas" will continue through the end of 2015.
