As the executive director of Environment Texas, Luke is a leading voice in the state for clean air, clean water, clean energy and open space. Luke has led successful campaigns to win permanent protection for the Christmas Mountains of Big Bend; to compel Exxon, Shell and Chevron Phillips to cut air pollution at four Texas refineries and chemical plants; and to boost funding for water conservation and state parks. The San Antonio Current has called Luke "long one of the most energetic and dedicated defenders of environmental issues in the state." He has been named one of the "Top Lobbyists for Causes" by Capitol Inside, received the President's Award from the Texas Recreation and Parks Society for his work to protect Texas parks, and was chosen for the inaugural class of "Next Generation Fellows" by the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at UT Austin. Luke, his wife, son and daughters are working to visit every state park in Texas.

We're in one of the worst droughts ever, yet billions of gallons of water are still wasted each year through inefficient practices, leaving very little for recreation and wildlife. The good news is we can meet our water needs and keep our rivers flowing for recreation and wildlife if Texas makes water conservation a priority.

Over the next few days, Environment Texas Research and Policy Center will host town halls meeting in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Brownsville to discuss Texas’s water future.
