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

  • 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 say this because in 2011 they had an ice storm in Texas and lost all their power. yet all the idiots voted for republicans over and over in every single post in state government. I feel bad that they are suffering but these idiots will keep shooting the arrow straight up. money talks and all of you suffering its on you.

  • It's funny how these ppl look for anyone but the representatives of that state to blame. Like AOC is there helping but where's Ted??? 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 🥺🥺

  • Green new deal has not done anything yet. The deregulation of power results in absurd replacement of nuclear and fossil fuels with wind and solar power. The appropriate replacement of nuclear technology and fossil fuels is edison generators and dynamos as power plants. Wind and solar reinforce the illusion that nuclear power and fossil fuels are necessary.
