GOP & Fox Blame AOC’s Green New Deal for the Texas Power Crisis | The Daily Social Distancing Show

Millions of Texans are still without power and going to extreme lengths to stay warm, the mayor of Colorado City steps down after telling residents “the weak will perish,” and Fox News blames AOC’s Green New Deal for the power outages when poor oversight is the real culprit. #DailyShow #TrevorNoah #Texas

    All these representatives are getting transparent in saying "the government doesn't want to take care of you." Sounds like we need a system where people look out for each other and maintain a government for the people. Almost like some sort of society based government might benefit people.

    In New England water pipes are at leas 8 ft under ground all the way into house to keep from freezing. Texans are above ground before entering houses. They have to bury all water pipes starting now. That’s just one thing they need to do. State and residents need to winterize.

    This is what happens when morons claim DEREGULATION is the answer to government in our country. A growing Country will fail if government does not grow with it. Deregulation leads to crony capitalism making it easier to take over control of our country. Texas ,what a PERFECT example of what deregulation can do for us all.

    FACTS... the green new deal which by the way would actually take hours to read through all the Bill's proposed in the deal was unanimously passed in about 15 minutes from the democratic side and a few republicans as well which shows they me don't even 99% of the bills proposed in the deal, and why are the benefiting China so much? If anyone actually read the deal they would realize 25% of the Texas's power grid would be converted to wind and instead of ordering America turbines the bill stated they be ordered from China which btw are the ones that froze in texas... now that I think about quite a bit of the laws being passed now benefit China and screw America over... and I believe quite a bit of our politicians have ties to China due to the fact so many have traveled there for business deals, go to they have links there you can click to find Bill's passed in there entirety and the names of those who wrote and voted for them, I go to state government websites as well to find accurate information, once some of you sheep actually do your own research instead of letting people's opinions like the writers and editors of this KGkey channel or the media tell you what politicians to vote for you'll notice something... Biden, federal, and state politicians are not the only ones in America passing laws and bills..... China is as well, and seeing how China despises America it seems to me like that is the biggest problem, who is really running America? You know what really opened my eyes.... the fact my Facebook and Twitter account were erased from existence when I started telling people that I believe the media, social media and politicians are being bought out by China, and isn't it strange that misinformation and propaganda are spreading on every media platform that China has bought rights in from the stock market, to the Chinese communist party I must say bravo 👏👏👏 when you took control of China in 1949 from buying politicians and media outlets I never thought I would see the same strategy work again, but you know the old saying if how history repeats itself.

    If you think of what alternative energy could be now if there was a real price tag behind it twenty years ago, forty years ago even, I sigh. Only now is there a real demand for it, and that's only because fossil fuels aren't as readily available or as cheap. But I think of instruments like the computer or the cellphone, or even cars. They used to be large, clunky, slow, and annoying. A few years of innovation fixed that, and now demand has these tools progressed beyond anyone back then's wildest imaginations.

This scenario gets repeated over and over.

    For all you people scoffing and shaking your head at this hack who it's not from Texas and never spent more than a weekend here for his mediocre comedy of which there were most likely extra tickets for. This was a once in century winter storm that overloaded our power grid. California can't keep the lights on cause they still haven't learned that it gets hot in the summer. My well being and responsibility for my family ISN'T the charge of the government. All i hear from this guy and others is we want you to join the rest of country and conform our failing system. Thanks for the condescending "Texas"accent. We all ride horses to work and boots no matter the occasion.

      Well... no lol. Texas not even 20 years ago had a similar winter weather problem that forced nearly 50 counties to be declared disaster areas by President George Bush. In 2011 an outage had over a million in Texas without power. And in 2019 almost 400,000 lost power in around Dallas. Also winter weather is not the only problems Texas can face that would put its power grid in jeopardy and with climate change being a real thing (i know you will probably scoff at it, but denying science does not change reality) we are likely to see similar weather events in the future. _ALSO_ the problems exposed in Texas' power grid are not weather specific anyways. This is about how de-regulation has lead to lax monitoring and upkeep (remember those power plants did not _NEED_ to go down had they been properly winterized). Add to that the fact that Texas is on a grid on it's own means it can not draw power from other states in times of need, or to be used to start up a power plant that shut down. Im not sure on the number, but im betting Texas does not have many cold start power plants. So if there is a power failure somewhere (again, not all power failures are related to weather) it can have a domino effect.

    Its a once in a lifetime freeze. The infrasturture isnt made to withsand it like Northern states. The only functioning reliable power has been gas and nuclear. Due to low winter demand, these same sources were down for scheduled maintenance or didnt have the gas on hand needed. Regulating the grid in TX will lead to a grid like CA... a true mess. These regulated grid and current policy to buy “green” electrons first will further reduce reliable power due to affordability. Green new deal power sources are un/lessreliable. No real arguement otherwise. Believing her hype and completely going green is both unaffordable and unreliabe. Green new deal power is a trap laid down with subsidies. Seriously just look into it a little rather than believe these clowns.

      Natural gas was just as vulnerable because it needs pipes for just in time delivery and the control systems froze. The only thing that held up well was coal because you have a pile of rocks in a barn. Natural Gas and Wind would have worked if Texas bothered to winterize their stuff like everyone else does. Canada produces 15GW from wind turbines. Cheap, low tax Red State thinks that the 'free market' deregulation is the answer to everything.
