Abbot tried to blame this on windmills, and aoc tried to blame it on not having the green new deal in place. So predictable. The actual reason for the failure was that the coal, gas, and nuclear plants weren’t equipped to deal with freezing temperatures. Politicians are such shameless liars, and people who Stan them are gullible retards.

Yes! The overwhelming vast majority are.

It’s due to deregulation and capitalism. Texas didn’t want to be part of the US power grid so they have their own shitty one to avoid regulation and the rich can profit. Then there was no incentive to winterize and equip the resources to deal with something of this magnitude.

Obviously the culprit was no incentive to winterize for a very rare event. The plants had actually just spent resources summerizing, because last year a nearly similar event almost occurred with the droughts and high temperatures Texas experienced last summer. All of the plants rely on water to heat and turn the turbines. This time it froze, last summer they nearly ran out.

The point is that both Reps and Dems lied about this event to score political points, and it is easy to see it, but most people will just agree with their team. Blaming capitalism is a bit simplistic. If power was completely socialized would winterizing Texas coal, gas, and nuclear plants be a priority? I doubt it.

Both sides are politicizing this, but to place the blame equally at the feet of each is false equivalency. One side has dominated Texas politics for decades now. During that time Texas has seen unprecedented growth and economic opportunity, true. During that time Texas should have modernized its infrastructure and electrical grid, also true.

We deserve it. We elect idiots who politicize and disregard good people who actually want to do the right thing.

Updating the grid is not sexy and it costs money so lobbyists lobby our politicians against it.

We got ourselves this broken government and we deserve it.

The blame for this is actually at neither side, but they sure are politicizing it, because people lap this shit up. I'm for socialized medicine, but I know I can still die from cancer in Scandinavia.
