Texas’ Energy Grid Gets Fresh Scrutiny Following Major Storm | Morning Joe | MSNBC

I guess Rick Perry and Rudy Giuliani were unsuccessful in securing lucrative energy contracts in Ukraine so now Perry needs to blame President Biden for what America’s energy sector has caused in TX! Perhaps to earn more money to do more damage to the climate! See how that works? Hmm?
Huh? Windmills in Canada don’t freeze. The real problem was with the natural gas supply. But conservative media can’t miss an opportunity to disinform its appallingly ignorant viewers for political advantage.
You don’t see blue states having this problem. Third world country, can’t even keep the lights on.
Once this bad weather passes and utilities are restored, the utility companies will petition to raise rates because of the expense of fixing the 1960s power grid they never updated. Same old.
Fox News needs its license revoked. Feeding LIES to protect a soulless politician. These slugs see every incident as another opportunity to blame Democrats for something anything. Instead of doing their job as the party in power, they play politics. Abbot will probably say people have to make sacrifices for their grandchildren … at least the ones that don’t freeze to death.
Lawmakers in Texas point the fingers at yourselves own your problem you created!!! Pathetic
Texas’ energy grid: “Heheh, I’m in danger.”
Abbott and the rest of the elected officials are too busy lining their own pockets, to be bothered with fixing the infastructure or do anything at all that benefits average and lower income citizens.
Just look at how fxxkedup they have handled the pandemic.
Solar power??? It’s TX!! Alternative power shouldn’t even be a new idea for a first world country like the US.
I pray that Texans get their power back today.
Keep Voting Republican, thats what you get
Blaming the wind turbines being frozen up as the main cause is an absolute joke. Wind turbines in Alberta, Canada have no problems running at -35 C (-31 F). Has a lot more to do with cutting corners on maintenance and lack of preparation for unusual weather events such as this.
i bet the billionaires still have power
Wow. Just like trump it’s everyone’s fault but his. The south keep voting for these heartless people.
How ironic the one state that praised Trump the entire time he was in office , and they thought Trump had this great infrastructure program that never happened just another promise made and broke. So how ya feel now Texas ,its cold out there ain’t it.
This what happens when you have a closed off power system in order to avoid regulations.
Whatever their political standing and leadership miss steps POTUS-46 needs to try to help. They are Americans and they need our help!
All the while Fox TRIES to blame wind energy for this when that only accounts for 12% of their power. What is the definition of fake news again?
It is (-15) this morning in Michigan and we didn’t lose power. The wind mills must be still running.
Republicans are in power for decades, Something goes wrong and it’s a Democrat’s fault. Typical republican hypocrisy and lies.
Wow! That looks like Canada, except we expect it, and are more or less ready for it. And our buildings are designed for winter. I am sorry for the people experiencing this. It is not funny to freeze. Hope everything normalizes soon.
Anti-Science & Greed are behind this DEADLY Failure. Go ahead Secede Texas.. Continue the experiment at the expense of Life Itself.. (Regulations are put in place for Very Good Reason..)
Republican infrastructure at work!
