Imperial Pure Cane Sugar--one of the oldest industries in Texas. If threatened by Oil who will care
Imperial was founded well over 100 years ago. Unlike the well over 200 years of dependence upon sea life for industries and jobs in the Gulf Coast. The number of Texas politicians tied to Big Oil lobbies makes me wonder if they would change their vote and rhetoric if the Gulf of Mexico were more affected by the BP oil flow and especially if a coastal storm had the potential to devastate the Sugarland enterprise with a long and historic past tied to Texas?
