The Texas power grid failed mostly due to natural gas. Republicans are blaming wind turbines https://t.co/JaFTspBm5a— David Lazarus (@Davidlaz) February 17, 2021
Takes a lot of stupidity to blame green energy when it was natural gas that was the majority of the failed power grid in Texas.https://t.co/ibTsrRKIbT— Sunshine's Mom (@sunni1515) February 17, 2021
No. gas failed much harder. The issue is infrastructure not prepared for the temps despite scientists warning for years something like this is more and more likely. https://t.co/lgxIy7Z58P— JM (@JM17531515) February 17, 2021
Here's the latest on what we know about the energy situation in Texas and the central U.S. Please make sure to check back for updates later today and tomorrow.https://t.co/ln00K0HGKY— Leticia Gonzales (@LeticiaG_NGI) February 17, 2021
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 ?

Texas largely relies on natural gas for power. It wasn’t ready for the extreme cold. https://t.co/pcHmdUaOwb pic.twitter.com/qdRfGyZJQK— Sierra Club (@SierraClub) 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

Good story on power outages from the @TexasTribune. The main problem is that natural gas plants failed due to a lack of sufficient winterization preparation after the Arctic Outbreak of 2011.https://t.co/TAEqBCiZI3— Eric Berger (@SpaceCityWX) February 17, 2021
Today @GovAbbott betrayed the people of Texas by lying about the collapse of the ERCOT grid. Grossly underregulated gas & coal facilities failed, bc the state did not prioritize the wellbeing of the people of Texas. https://t.co/90Z70GmAV5— Joseph Robertson (@poet_economist) February 17, 2021

テキサスの大停電がどうやって起きたのかをまとめた記事。大寒波により火力発電の一部設備が凍結し、電力不足に陥る。テキサスは巨大天然ガス田からパイプラインで発電所にガスを供給するが、低温に加えて電力がないため天然ガスを生産・供給できず、電力供給が更に悪化した。https://t.co/wivEYIk8yM— Kenji Shiraishi (@Knjshiraishi) February 17, 2021
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
