What’s going on in Texas is what happens in a one party state where every single statewide politician has no professional skills beyond stoking culture war bullshit every day so they didn’t winterize its generation sources the last time this happened https://t.co/kb3cubCLbY— Adam Serwer 🍝 (@AdamSerwer) February 17, 2021
The main culprit behind Texas’ loss of energy is our natural gas operations. Over half of our capacity has been shuttered.— Progress Texas (@ProgressTX) February 17, 2021
We need to move to more resilient forms of renewable energy to avoid these kinds of disasters in the future. #txlege https://t.co/ShVjkfPVZK

“We’re in it alone”: Millions of Texans desperate for heat and safety https://t.co/yWiV8GOtwB
Texas relies on natural gas for power. It wasn’t ready for extreme cold. https://t.co/jya2ZCyBsm
I don’t think a lot of the country realizes what’s happening in Texas right now.— Daniella Diaz (@DaniellaMicaela) February 17, 2021
There are millions of people that don’t have electricity.
No electricity means no heat.
In some cases no electricity means no running water. For DAYS. In freezing temps. https://t.co/bnZYiHCaRR
“Failures across Texas’ natural gas operations and supply chains due to extreme temperatures are the most significant cause of the power crisis that has left millions of Texans without heat and electricity during the winter storm sweeping the U.S.” https://t.co/nKFKy5oxhg— Daniel W.

Clean Energy is NOT to blame for Texas' Winter Weather Disaster!— Katie K! 💙 (@JustInCaseKate) February 17, 2021
Greed, deregulation, negligence, disinformation, incompetence, corruption..and yeah, gerrymandering. All in worship of fossil fuels.
You know the platform of the Texas GOP.
The "right" continues to spread lies... the Texas grid failure had little to do with green energy but was mostly due to the failure of fossil fuel sources - the data speaks for itself - https://t.co/WtGmiwqH4N#ClimateBrawl #ClimateCrisis #ClimatePoli #climatechange https://t.co/vu4AyKyyRO— @GeraldKutney (@GeraldKutney) February 17, 2021
"ERCOT said the primary cause of the outages Tuesday appeared to be the state’s natural gas providers. Many are not designed to withstand such low temperatures on equipment or during production."https://t.co/1tmGpLSayp#NaturalGas #shale #fintwit #oilandgas #Commodities pic.twitter.com/MYzyHw7VP3— Art Berman (@aeberman12) February 17, 2021
For those who are just trying to understand what's going on in Texas. Most of the state's energy grid is founded on its supply of natural gas, which is currently encased in ice without resources to defrost (y'know, apart from the sun):https://t.co/VkQIGdnJ3C— Jonathan Jackson, PhD (@egaly) February 17, 2021
