Good grief!  :facepalm:

No, toots, it's not magic. It's like, nature.

With a healthy serving of "science" to go with it.

I've been looking for some manatee skin boots.  Not having much luck, but I did find an article that said, "In the wintertime, the skin of baby manatee pups make delightful boots for your children to wear."1  :D

AOC decided to chime in on the weather/power situation in Texas and the problem is...
No green new deal and no focus on equity.
Guess she didn't get the memo on the frozen GREEN wind turbines

@AOC
The infrastructure failures in Texas are quite literally what happens when you *donít* pursue a Green New Deal.

Replying to @AOC
Weak on sweeping next-gen public infrastructure investments, little focus on equity so communities are left behind, climate deniers in leadership so they donít long prep for disaster.

We need to help people *now.* Long-term we must realize these are the consequences of inaction.

Fission Piles provide heat AND electricity.  Doesn't get more green than that.

I heard South Texas Nuclear lost at least one unit due to the freeze.  I did not hear exactly why. 

Not sure how they do it at the nuke plant, but everyone gets complacent down here on the Gulf Coast since we rarely see temps more than 5 degrees below freezing.  Once you drop below that, things that don't normally freeze start freezing.  Damaged insulation doesn't get repairs, lines that would be insulated further north are not insulated here.  I can think of at least one water line we did not insulate a few years ago (we argued about it) froze and cracked.  I also hear plants further north enclose critical areas in buildings and such.  In our case, we just don't put enough effort into maintaining robust freeze protection.  That might change since global warming is obviously causing all this and it will get worse.

It's likely not making the news right now because of larger issues, but it will interesting to see the number of ruptured pipes in homes throughout Texas when this is over. I bet plenty of people there haven't ever even thought of things like insulating outside pipes, keeping faucets dripping, etc.  With the overall numbers right now, I bet people with burst plumbing will run into the low hundreds of thousands.

Almost makes me wish I was a retired plumber. I would go down for a month or so to work a bit.

What she just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
At no point, in her rambling, incoherent statement was she even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought.
Everyone on this continent is now dumber for having read it.

I know we've talked about this here before, but I'd rather like if the green movement would start backing nuclear.  We need more nuclear infrastructure, but it's hard to compete on price vs "stuff we can burn".  If greenies are going to use regulation and economic controls to manipulate the energy market, please, please do it in a way that gets us a solution that makes sense - nuclear.

It's almost like the powers that be don't want cheap, abundant energy. Like they want to see most of the country actually living like the peasants, peons and serfs they see us as anyway.
