Record low temperatures in Texas left millions of Texans without power, and it is suspected that several people may have frozen to death, although this has not been confirmed, because wind power generators stopped and the grid collapsed.
“The windmills froze, so the power grid failed. Millions of Texans woke up Monday morning having to boil their water because with no electricity, the water couldn’t be purified,” noted host Tucker Carlson according to Townhall on Feb. 16.
He also pointed to the incompetence of the Texas Electric Reliability Council, which was only able to recommend that residents use less power.
“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,” Carlson continued, describing the tragedy.
He added, “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 absurdity of the Texas energy crisis
He also noted the absurdity of this energy crisis occurring in Texas, a state with huge deposits of natural gas.
“Running out of energy in Texas is like starving to death at the grocery store: You can only do it on purpose, and Texas did,” Carlson reiterated, going on to refer to the governors’ adherence to alternative energies to follow the fad.
The catastrophe was denounced by some on social media, including Twitter user @twinelm. “WRONG. Our power out since 5 am, systematic widespread outage NOT rolling affecting millions in sub zero weather as we ha e j. central TX. People are going to DIE over this green energy [expletive removed],” he tweeted.
President Joe Biden is pushing the controversial theories of climate change and leading the country toward the production of so-called green energy, even at the cost of millions of jobs and the loss of the country’s energy autonomy obtained by former President Donald Trump.
As an example of the impact of these decisions, a digital media outlet dedicated to reporting on the “energy transition,” Clean Energy Wire, reported that the renewable energy industry in Germany suffered a catastrophic loss of more than 50% of the jobs in the last 10 years.
Relying on green power
The Texas catastrophe is a warning about the risks of shifting to reliance on “green power” generation, with risk to American lives.
Countries with a longer history in the use of alternative energy are also suffering declines in renewable energy production, as is the case in Germany.
The virtual community Disclose.tv reported a news item from Sky News, stating that the winter snow affected millions of devices that should generate “green energy.”
“NEW – In Germany, millions of solar panels are blanketed in snow and 30,000 wind turbines are sitting idle because there’s no wind (Sky News),” it had in a tweet.
