UPDATE:  This segment was canceled due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts.

A new study find that Texas may be looking at losing $20 billion worth of its best real estate. Former San Antonio Mayor and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Henry Cisneros, argued in a recent op-ed that the future will be bleak for Texas' economy if we don't start dealing with climate change. 

The study was produced by The Risky Business Project,  a bi-partisan group of like-minded leaders who want to tackle the issue head on. 

Cisneros is in good company as a co-chair of The Risky Business Project, which boasts Former Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, Former Mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg, and many others high-profile decision-makers as co-chairs.

What does Texas need to do to address the issue?
