Christian Pens Letter to Legislative Leaders Concerning Eco-Terrorism Materials Taught in Colleges

April 24, 2024

Following a Washington Times report about “How to Blow Up a Pipeline” being taught at universities in various states, Texas Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian sent a letter to Senator Brandon Creighton and Representative John Kuempel, higher education committees chairs in the Texas Legislature, highlighting concerns of radical environmentalists’ materials being taught in universities and colleges. The Commissioner said the following about the issue:

“Safeguarding America’s energy infrastructure is paramount, and we cannot overlook the looming threat of eco-terrorism aimed at pipelines, refineries, and processing plants,” said Christian. “The teaching of ‘How to Blow Up a Pipeline’ in colleges is deeply troubling. We must prevent radical agendas from indoctrinating future generations with anti-American propaganda with our tax dollars. I want to encourage the legislature to look into whether any Texas universities or colleges are teaching ‘How to Blow Up a Pipeline’ or other related eco-terrorism-based materials.”
