Conservatives like Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) have been falsely blaming renewable energy, specifically frozen wind turbines, as the cause of the state’s massive power outages. Read more: wapo.st/3jXEyu9. Subscribe to The Washington Post on UZload: wapo.st/2QOdcqK

    This one is really bizarre to me. The easy spin for Abbott and Cruz would have been to blame the weather. Blaming wind turbines for this is like blaming your gas cooker for your house burning down when there was a forest fire 5 blocks away. Okay yeah the turbines freezing up didn't help but even if there were no turbines there would still be blackouts.

    From 12AM 1/18 to 12AM 2/17 wind power production dropped 93% in the same period Coal increased 47% and Gas increased 450% but sure your video is probably true also...Mon 2/16 was the worst day, by the following day Coal and Gas were over performing their output from a month earlier and wind was down 93%. Now 93% of wind being down in 2021 is over 23% of Texas' total energy production 400% more than in 2011 when it would have only accounted for 5.6%. I'm sure that didn't make a difference though, I am a drunken fool.

      You want to blame Biden when both the governor and the ex-governor both said they want to be independent from the federal government and don't want them in Texas' business...."Texas can tough it out." They voted on it, and all the state offices which control this fiasco are Republican. Electric went out, then Natural gas froze, followed by wind turbine. Texas never winterized their own grid. The federal government can't make them do it since THEY OPTED to be self sustaining. Doesn't seem to be working well for them. They had the same situation in 2011 before their windmills. Who was at fault then? Texas Governor was then, Texas Governor is now. Oh yeah, Biden already released funds to help Texas, since they can't do the stuff they were supposed to do 10 years ago that would have prevented this.

    The media IS the problem. Debunking... how? By listening to a news story? Since when is that fact checking? How about reporting on the Balls that Molly has in her Time magazine article a couple of weeks ago that actually stated that "Trump was right" about the 2020 election conspiracy? That the election was "fortified" to get the desired outcome. Although 'we' should have known that dems were willing to do anything (yes, even cheat) to get Trump out of office. Or do some REAL journalism and hold Pelosi accountable for the Capital security on January 6th since it was IN FACT her jurisdiction to ensure that particular buildings security (which since she did IN FACT turn down and delayed her own call for help); kind of like she was in on it . In fact, who DID get what they wanted from the activity? (it wasn't Trump) Oh yeah, it was, IN FACT, that ANTIFA guy (Sullivan) that scored over $70K for his video that showed his own criminal involvement inside the Capital that day, PAID FOR BY the media of course. Fact check that you deplorables!

    Donald Trump's lawyers have explained who is to blame for the capture of the Capitol. There are two provocative reasons 1. Actions of Nancy Pelosi who refused to reconsider the rigged elections. This prompted people to storm. 2. The incompetence of Nancy Pelosi as a leader, which resulted in the loss of life in the building. She did not provide security for the meeting. In both cases, the blame falls on Nancy Pelosi. Therefore, she slandered Trump in order to distract the investigation from her identity. This is a detective story. Donald Trump has proven his innocence in the Senate! And now he can file a libel suit against Nancy Pelosi. We know that in Florida, Trump was greeted as President of the United States. And the governor of Florida then criticized Biden & Co.'s actions in the area of ​​travel restrictions. We see that Biden & Co. do not deny themselves and move as they want. Biden, why aren't you sitting in the basement ? Вriving around the world. Americans ask. President Trump

      @Roger Out washington post will have as much bs as every other mainstream journalism such as cnn, fox. Sure obviously there's going to be many articles of complete truth and interesting things too, Im not saying you shouldn't watch or read either. I dont agree that wp is just a bs publisher, thats a broad statement. But I do see them have the same criteria in their content as cnn for example, where some things are left out for the benefit of their masters or twisted to make a racial/emotional story out of it (kinda like gorilla glue lady). For example cnn is owned by ATT, paid off by pharma etc. Fox, paid of by whatever republican loser you can think of. People need to look at all things they can and compare the info. Didnt really want to drag this out, Im just a bored mofo today. Hope youre having a nice day today.

    GOP fails the Pinnochio test every time. Even Cruz admitted they didn't winterize their wind turbines. And it's only 10% of their grid, but Gov. Abbot said it caused 100% of their failure. And what about all of those frozen pipes bursting inside of homes? When will they learn to insulate their pipes and keep a faucet or two trickling? I live in the north, had the same temperatures last week, no issues, and our power stayed on, only browns out in high wind, falling tree situations.

      @Republican Daily News It happened in 2011 and republicans were told they needed to put regulations in place, they didn't. I'm not sure if you are actually believing this has something to do with windmills, because by Abbott's own office windmills failures only represented 13% of Texas total power outages, the rest were Oil, gas and nuclear. But just so you understand it: even If it had been the windmills, it would've still been republicans fault. Democrats didn't put those windmills up and they aren't the ones who regulate them. States like Iowa, Wisconsin and even Oklahoma use windmills and turbines and they too were hit by this storm, yet they have power and water and we don't. Why? Because they actually do regulate their utilities companies and require those companies to winterize all of their equipments and facilities, something republicans here do not do.

    • Republican Daily News
      Republican Daily News

      @Emmanuel Quaintance Lets ask a serious question, has anything like this happened in Texas BEFORE windmills existed???Seriously has there been a similar widespread power outage this length in Texas before. I dont know that answer, I am asking. could dead windmill storage batterys overload the power plants during heavy customer use in an extreme cold storm?

    • Emmanuel Quaintance

      Blame who you want, I blame the republicans who have governed our state for the last two decades. They are responsible for this, each and every one of them from Bush to Abbott. And FEMA and the president are already handing over generators, water, food, medicines to the people here. But imagine for a moment that we had seceded like Abbott and other republicans were telling us just a few weeks ago, we wouldn't have had FEMA or the feds to help us out and they are the only single thing helping us right now. If it wasn't for the fact that 38 people and counting have died and that so many more had to go through this, it would actually be a beautiful experience to see Abbott and republicans eating their own words about blue states being so terribly mismanaged.

    I just want to throw out a theory of mine. It is called the "Drumpf Lie Umbrella Effect". For the past 4 years, a certain person would tell a lot of lies so fast and hard that the lesser lies slipped through the cracks. There were a lot of people that didn't possess the ability to critically think, and would support the shotgun blast of lies. The majority of critical thinkers lost hair, and wondered how this kept happening. During this four year period, the ability to fact check and discern truth by the latter party became akin to that of a body builders muscles. It is in great shape now. Little lies are instantly melted (as in this video that was made specifically to tell the truth about what these men were lying about). The two take-aways for us are 1: Watch out for the next really good liar; don't fan the dishonesty; 2:The truth is winning

      Not to mention the flouride fiasco and thats now proved to be true after these new lawsuits coming out(look it up). Im against mass medication in general, because in my mind health (and education for that matter) should have an individualistic aproach.

      @Grinch McCONall I'm not anti vax, im against the idea of rushed meds being pushed on people without double blind placebo testing, and without liability(medication has to, why not vax? Unethical???). Until there is a government program or option to sue for any vaccine damages like what happened back in 1976 with swine or many others. Just saying, if there's so little amount of people injured, then why is it a problem to compensate those who got paralyzed, blind, or whatever else. I may seem like a nut I guess, but the world is crazy, and to explain it is easier said than done. People are quick to judge or call conspiracy, but the facts will always be there...there's no liability, and rna vax is a new thing never done on a rushed vaccine, Im just going off of common sense, not saying there's lizard people taking over.

    Texas is not the only state who got hit with this storm. Why the other states didn’t have this issue? And these other states relay more on these renewable energy more than Texas. The answer is our republicans leaders don’t care about the people and they didn’t do their job to be prepared. They’re trying to blame it on windmill who only generate 10%, what happened to the 90% ? Do Fox think we’re that stupid? Thanks god I don’t watch Fox News. Shame on Ted Cruz who was flying for fun to Mexico and other officials from different states were in Texas trying to help us. Now the republicans want to block the help to Americans by blocking the next COVID bill. How low and dirty these republicans want go to screw us?

      @IMurderdTheDevil There are so many more solutions than solar panels. Again, open your eyes, going to the moon seemed impossible and felt a bit strange as well right?

      @Republican Daily News better blame regulations, policies and non-connection to the federal grid. Open your eyes and face the truth...

    Renewable energy is a small percent of the energy in a state that doesn't want to accept climate change like Texas.

      @L Foley there is significant evidence that global average temperatures are rising.... Climate change is a more often used term because it emphasizes other impacts such as more extreme monsoons, droughts, flooding, and stronger wind currents. Your inability to understand basic science is not a valid argument against science.

      @L Foley Found the armchair PhD. Your ignorance is immeasurable, the effect CO2 and other greenhouse gases have been known for over a century and in fact measurable. Hope you don't own seaside property.

      The term "climate change" was coined because scientists couldn't prove "global warming." The planet is either warming up or going into an ice age. The term "climate change" is pseudoscientific BS.

      Texas is actually a leader in the US when it comes to wind power. Wind just isn't to blame for the issue. The current problem is a result of the failing natural gas based production along with how isolated Texas's power grid is from the rest of the nation.
