Yesterday’s Quote of the Day, Today!

Beto O’Rourke in The Hill:

“The energy capital of North America cannot provide enough energy to warm and power people’s homes,” O’Rourke said. “We are nearing a failed state in Texas. And it has nothing to do with God or natural disasters. It has everything to do with those in positions of public trust who have failed us.”

And I will note that Texas Gov. Abbott somehow managed to find the time to go on Thumb Head’s teevee show last night to score political points… and one lonely spitball sailed through the innernets:

  1. How does she do this?

    She’s a witch, of course, because she turned them all into Newts! (always wrong, vile and insufferably full of themselves.)

    Fetch a duck!

    A major refinery in Port Arthur closed down because of the cold. The sun, OTOH, is still providing power. And Greg Abbott is still an asshole.

    Rachel did comment upon this. She pointed out that the great state of Texas had been warned that their power system was under insulated against exactly this sort of situation. She also said:
    Every time it happens, the feds again explain to Texas officials that if you insulate these things properly they won’t freeze up and fail.
    Turbines for windmills can also be insulated, ask people in Greenland who currently use wind power.
    If Texas had kept connected to the national grid they would have been able to get power even if their power generating facilities failed.

    I’d add – what the heck, 10% of their power is wind, he says, so why don’t they have around 90% of their power still operational if their fossil fuel power is so great? Oh, look, this Texan is thinking about the same thing…
