Texas blown away by wind power

I lol'd at how Bill avoided saying "4 years ago". But of course this also is correct.

gz wind supplies 25% of texas' needs already? didn't know that. wonder if republicans will be smart enough to get on board with renewable now that it's happening anyway, or risk having such a success be labelled as "liberal".

As long as there is no freak snow storm that freezes the windmills.

One would have to look into that. Probably they had to be switched off due to the outage and then froze in place. These are used all over the place in cold climates.

It was the ridiculous power grid infrastructure that was the major cause of the failure in Texas. Nordic countries laughed at the failure of the wind turbines in Texas. They regularly deal with arctic temperatures. There is their cancer-causing danger and how they kill zillions of birds though.....

Make sure to outfit your infrastructure for winter. It only costs billions extra.

do you get texas to start building better windmills or build better homes to handle the cold? nah, neither. blame someone else because the state decided it would be better to be off the national grid and to have the option to charge customers an exorbitant amount

"blame someone else" Who am I blaming? The answer is no one. Draw another card.

 

Make sure the homes you build here can handle extreme cold.....

You know what's a cheaper and more efficient way to extrort people for money?

thats rich coming from mr psyops. some guy in texas got hit with a 16k bill during the storm. customers were being charged 75% more than the average. putting some of that pink insulation in the walls might be cheaper

what does the narrator mean about the turbines spinning 290 mph? does he mean rpm? or the velocity at the tips of the blades?
