Nearly 500,000 people have died and millions more have had their lives upturned because of the gop's Negligence..and now texas


Recommended Posts

The pandemic has driven home a lesson that’s been true for a long time about Republican politicians: They don’t actually care about the welfare of their constituents so long as they’re able to trick enough people into people into believing the other side is responsible for everything that’s wrong. Nearly 500,000 people have died and millions more have had their lives upturned largely because of the GOP’s negligence, but they’ll have you believe the real enemies are the liberals impinging on your freedom by asking you to wear a mask.  A similar routine is playing out in response to the brutal ice storm that swept through Texas earlier this week, leaving millions without power due to an energy grid that was totally unprepared to shoulder the stress of a winterized natural disaster. On Tuesday, Governor Greg Abbott went on Fox News to point the finger at renewable energy. “This shows how the Green New Deal would be a deadly deal for the United States of America,” he said before claiming the “shutdown” of solar and wind energy “thrust Texas into a situation where it was lacking power.”

But it's all worth it to keep away that dreaded federal regulation

But what Abbott, his fellow Republicans, and conservative media conveniently fail to mention is that the Green New Deal is only an idea. The nation, and especially Texas, are powered by fossil fuels, overwhelmingly so, and it’s under this system that Texas was cast into the Dark Ages after a few days of uncharacteristically cold temperatures. The real culprit here is not frozen wind turbines; it’s that huge percentage of Texas’ natural gas-powered thermal plants have frozen and gone offline. One of the reasons why all of these plants are offline is because the Texas power grid is largely deregulated and privatized. As the Texas Tribune laid out in 2011, the state isolated its power grid from that of the rest of the nation because it didn’t want it to be subject to federal regulation. This led to cost cutting, and over the years the state’s energy infrastructure fell into disrepair. “The [Electric Reliability Council of Texas] grid has collapsed in exactly the same manner as the old Soviet Union,” Ed Hirs, an energy fellow in the Department of Economics at the University of Houston, told the Houston Chronicle. “It limped along on underinvestment and neglect until it finally broke under predictable circumstances.”  This is all to say that fossil fuels and conservative leadership are very much to blame for the devastation that has swept across the state this week, and if anything the widespread blackouts prove we need to ramp up renewable energy, which is generally more resilient to inclement weather. Renewable energy doesn’t exacerbate the climate crisis, either, which has helped spur all of these unpredictable weather events, which are only going to get worse. The future of our country hangs in the balance. Republicans either don’t understand this, or they do and they don’t care because — again — they know they’ll be able to spin enough blame onto Democrats to get themselves reelected.

In case you’re wondering, Greg Abbott is already planning to run for third term in 2022

I thought global warming would bring milder winters

 

What happened Slideman?

 

Human caused global warming is bringing many things, you poor confused nitwit.

 

Temperatures are indeed going up higher and higher as the years roll by and CO2 levels continue to rapidly rise. 

 

Climate disruptions are consequently getting more severe and frequent. Disruptions like the breakdown of the Polar Vortex, which is getting to be a yearly occurrence, which allows frigid Arctic air to push down into north America. As America just experienced. But that has nothing to do with the fact that, globally, winters are indeed getting warmer.

 

As demonstrated by this fact.....

NASA Says 2020 Tied for Hottest Year on Record

The results are finally in: 2020 was one of the hottest years in recorded history, according to data released today by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. By NASA’s reckoning, it tied with 2016 for the hottest year in the books, while NOAA placed it in the number-two spot. Regardless of its final placement, 2020’s feverish heat came without the major El Niño event that boosted global temperatures to a new high four years ago—and thus the year provides an important marker of the power of the long-term warming trend driven by human activities that emit greenhouse gases. “Until we stop doing that, we’re going to see this over and over again,” says Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, which keeps the agency’s temperature records.

Delusional much? Either that or you get your talking points and just parrot them.

 

An anecdotal incident is just that, but there have now been several examples of cold weather anomalies that deserve credence. Where are you on countries, like China, that haven't done squat to curb "greenhouse emissions" compared to the US that has done much to limit all kinds of pollution? China is, by far, the largest polluter.

 

If you are so concerned, just stop exhaling, and talk more about deforestation. Oh wait! That's a contradiction! Take my first suggestion.

China is crushing the U.S. in renewable energy

More than 2.5 million people work in the solar power sector alone in China, compared with 260,000 people in the U.S., according to the most recent annual report from the International Renewable Energy Agency.

While President Trump promises to put American coal miners back to work, China is moving in the opposite direction.

All the world's problems are because of the GOP. LOL! Eve was tempted by a much  younger and sexier Mitch "The Snapper" McConnell. LOL!

 

You guys post some of the dumbest things and I don't believe you believe what you post. LOL

 

The best part is they are blaming this on deregulation. LMAO!
