This could happen in YOUR state.
According to reports from just about every major news outlet The Texas energy grid went down as a result of below freezing temperatures, and people have died as a result.
Apparently, windmills do not spin in the freezing cold.
This situation is proof positive of the dangers of some of these ‘green energy’ technologies that are being pushed on us by Biden and leftists.
Will we use fossil fuels forever?
Is the answer to the fossil fuel issue building windmills everywhere?
Not a chance.
Should we all take a moment, and learn from this tragic experience?
Take a look:
Fox News reported:
The Green New Deal has come, believe it or not, to the state of Texas. How's it working out so far?
Well, the good news is all that alternative energy seems to have had a remarkable effect on the climate. Sunday night, parts of Texas got the temperatures that we typically see in Alaska. In fact, they were the same as they were in Alaska. So global warming is no longer a pressing concern in Houston.
The bad news is, they don't have electricity. The windmills froze, so the power grid failed. Millions of Texans woke up Monday morning having to boil their water because with no electricity, it couldn't be purified.
The ironically named Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which oversees the grid, had no solution to any of this. They simply told people to stop using so much power to keep warm. So in Houston, hundreds of shivering Texans headed to the convention center like refugees to keep from freezing to death. Some Texans almost certainly did freeze to death. Later this week, we'll likely learn just how many more were killed as they tried to keep warm with jury-rigged heaters and barbecues and car exhaust.
The Weather Channel had this to report:
With millions of homes without power and the coldest temperatures in decades, Texans endured a miserable night in the aftermath of Winter Storm Uri. As temperatures dropped into the single digits, people desperately sought ways to stay warm, sometimes with deadly results.
Across the South and into the mid-Atlantic and Northeast, several million homes and businesses had no power Tuesday morning. In Texas alone, more than 4 million customers still had no electricity Tuesday morning. Some had been without power for more than 24 hours after generating stations went offline early Monday.
The outages also shut down water treatment plants and hundreds of thousands of people were told to boil water before using it.
