There's this bumper sticker I sometimes see: "Keep Austin Weird." It's from a place that doesn't quite fit in with the rest of Texas, culturally, politically or gastronomically, and doesn't seem to want to either.
Texas is the country's leading energy-producing state, and ranks near the top in pollution emissions. But a new renewable energy plan based in Austin fits right in with the "weirdness" on that bumper sticker.
