It’s just a guess, but I’m thinking that outspoken proponents of The Green New Deal, and the theory that our earth’s temperatures are rising out of control aren’t likely to be making any public appearances soon in Texas. 3.2 of the 29 million people who live in Texas woke up this morning in the dark, many with water pipes frozen because of power outages, some of which have lasted since Monday. Others have been impacted this week by rolling power black outs, all caused by the inability of the electricity grid that serves the Lone Star state to keep up with demand. Ice from a fierce winter storm, and single digit temperatures that followed that haven’t allowed ice to melt have caused wide spread failures of wind turbine power generation equipment, and solar power generators have been of little help since the sun hasn’t been shining on Texas for days. To make matters worse traditional coal and natural gas powered electricity generators which had been taken off line because of increasing use of alternative energy wouldn’t restart. From a thousand miles away it appears the increasing reliance on alternative energy sources has happened at least a little too fast and the people in Texas are paying the price. That’s the way I see it.
