But Al Gore said we'd have milder winters and we wouldn't have to worry about this weather anymore...

 

Remember?

Oh yeah they have been wrong ever since the predictions started. why should we believe them THIS time?

some highlights....

 

"

14. Ecologist Kenneth Watt declared, “By the year 2000 if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’” (Note: Global production of crude oil last year at 82.275M barrels per day (bpd) was just slightly below the record output in 2018 of 82.9M bpd, and about 50% higher than the global output of 55.7M bpd around the time of the first Earth Day).

15. Harrison Brown, a scientist at the National Academy of Sciences, published a chart in Scientific American that looked at metal reserves and estimated the humanity would totally run out of copper shortly after 2000. Lead, zinc, tin, gold, and silver would be gone before 1990.

16. Sen. Gaylord Nelson wrote in Look that, “Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.”

17. In 1975, Paul Ehrlich predicted that “since more than nine-tenths of the original tropical rainforests will be removed in most areas within the next 30 years or so, it is expected that half of the organisms in these areas will vanish with it.”"

Tell us how that would have made the problems they have had from the storms/weather better.

 

Thanks!

Regulations. 
 

Contingency plans. 
 

Texas has none of these. 

Texas has NO regulations? Come on. How can you be taken seriously with statements like that.

 

Again, how would Texas being on the national grid have made things better for those suffering from the effects of the latest weather event?

They don’t have enough as you can tell.

You don't know much about electricity do you?

Yes indeed  he was.

 

This stuff is literally impossible to predict. Which is why most (nearly all) of these predictions are eventually proven wrong.

Carbon as a greenhouse gas is spot on though. 
 

Has been for a hundred and fifty years.

I assume you mean Carbon Dioxide and yes it is a greenhouse gas.

 

What is not clear is the long term effect and the myriad other variables that affect the climate.

 

150 years is but a drop in the ocean compared to the age of the earth, whatever that may be.

What’s that got to do with regulations so shit like this doesn’t happen. 

If the sources that are supplying power to the grid are knocked out, I don't care what regulation you write up, it is not going to help.

 

Also, much of the problem of people not having power is from downed lines etc. caused by the storm.

 

I am sure there are lessons to be learned from these unfortunate events, but the answer is not always lying with the politicians in DC.

What is clear is excess carbon is settling in the oceans and turning them acidic. Yet another effect of climate change.

Then why is it only Texas that’s freezing?

Because it is not ONLY Texas.

 

The federal government has made a disaster declaration for Oklahoma as well...

"OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — Two record-breaking winter storms slammed into Oklahoma, causing hazardous driving conditions, rolling blackouts, water main breaks, and a host of other issues. "

Yet CO2 was 5x higher during the Dino age...and they roamed the earth 172,000,000 years...

 

so either you're wrong or TOE is....which is it noodlewings?
