GOP & Fox Blame AOC’s Green New Deal for the Texas Power Crisis | The Daily Social Distancing Show


Millions of Texans are still without power and going to extreme lengths to stay warm, the mayor of Colorado City steps down after telling residents “the weak will perish,” and Fox News blames AOC’s Green New Deal for the power outages when poor oversight is the real culprit. #DailyShow #TrevorNoah #Texas

    Wind turbines didn't just take up 12% of the power grid it took up 20% and it will cost three times as much to them fix up to work in cold weather vs fixing the base power grid Secondly some of those windmills are damaged beyond repair and Texas taxpayers have to pay for it and if that happened to any base power grid Guess what they would have had bonds and they would have had insurance plan to sell out To put it simply two people put ⛽ in there cars later both cars break down due to bad ⛽ The first company that makes the ⛽ reimburses you for the ⛽ and pays to fix your vehicle because he has faith in his product yet still fails The second company tells you that is your fault you have to fix your vehicle and they are not entitled to reimburse you for the ⛽ and it's not actually AOC they should be blaming it's more like the present they have to blame but who's going to like bring this up to Brain dead Joe I mean Minnesota had a very similar problem in the past that present Barack Obama help out with

    LOL turbines in places with MONTHS of weather like Texas had a few days of but can't handle are surviving a-ok because they weren't built by lowest-cost-highest-profit focused companies. When you deregulate the quality of your power sources, you get shitty results. When there are so few "incentivized" days, a few every several years, where TX companies get to charge those 8000-9000% rates instead of doing their lowest cost per unit wins bullshit, yeah, companies want to keep selling their energy in bulk the 99% of the time weather won't impact performance in that hot ass hellhole. I just feel sorry for the elders who had no say in it even 30 years ago when TX thought they were the bomb for having cheap ass power across tons of companies, none of them audited properly. It would've at least been SOMEWHAT monitored were it nuclear power (though I wouldn't trust a Texan with a nuclear plant, either). Just go solar, already, and have backup generators/batteries stored in well-insulated places. One reason they did NOT weatherize their places for cold weather is because insulating would also make it risky in hot weather and they didn't want to keep it a stable temperature, cool or warm not boiling or freezing. Blaming wind that isn't even 12% of the overall power supply for what the 88% did is so typical of Fox... gotta protect the big oil providers and treat the gas companies like BP as traitors for not investing in a dying disappearing resource. Not enough dead dinos to keep the Texan dream alive forever.

I thought he left to Cancun and not being there for their own ppl. It like he saw the crisis and said 'ehh this is not my problem' and left them to die. I wouldn't say that this is what they get bc no one deserves going through a crisis like this. But they were warned and those representatives didn't care and brushed it off. I feel so sad for the people who are going through such hard times and seeing that their government don't give 2 shits. I hope we are able to learn from this and get ppl to represent us not ppl who just want in for the money and power. Bless AOC and anyone else who is trying to hard to make amends 🥺🥺
