Way to go, creaky old power grid!
EXACTLY! Wow, Republicans recommending a course of action without considering the consequences first. I'm shocked.
Chuck Todd: Can America handle a black woman president and an Hispanic VP?/Chuck Todd.
Gregg Abbott has announced that he’s putting the chief of the Uvalde SD police in charge of the Texas grid. /s
waiting for people to understand this is the result of not regulating natural gas better... which is under RRC--NOT ERCOT or PUC.
it's because of voter suppression. telling people to vote doesn't get the job of helping them past the barriers to voting done.
Beto's campaign has a good GOTV operation to address it. MOVE Texas and JOLT Texas are excellent at helping young (especially BIPOC) Texans navigate the barriers as well.
41% of generators are natural gas and getting the suppliers to honot their contracts with those generators is an issue that pre-dates the Ukraine War. we've got more than enoughbto the stuff already in storage to cover both if RRC decides to fo its job.
good news: solar is bailing us out just like wind did last winter.
This is the middle of July. Tell me again about your success at the end of August.
Heat inversions like this Dome thing causes the wind to go flat. That's why it's hot and it's also why the wind doesn't blow! Science!
Sure but who would want it? Acknowledged that parts of the place are supposed to be beautiful. I've seen huge stretches of it that are not. Someone will have to take it all or nothing on that NFT
The Repoops laughed and laughed when CA had rolling blackouts (because of ENRON ratfucking the state due to Repoop-led deregulation), but when it's TX? Can't be helped, not our fault, it's just nature. Oh, and "Where's your wind-power god now, you heathens!"
I've been hearing that it's gonna go blue for as long as I can remember
Dear Texans That Want To Secede:First of all. you can't so suck it. We literally fought a war against the last people that thought they could if you remember. Second of all, we wouldn't just let you keep all Federal equipment and property.
Texans that want to secede and think they'd still get Social Security checks crack me up
Same here. It's been a good 20 years that I've heard that, and those predictions are based on Hispanics turning towards the Democrats, and I see no indication that's happening.
I've been to Houston in August and never again. I grew up in Phoenix so I'm used to the heat but the humidity is downright brutal.
