WATCH: Texas Gov. DESTROYS AOC’s “Green New Deal”

by Graham Allen Team

This week Texans have experienced a historic amount of snowfall and freezing temperatures. 

The lousy weather instigated a surge in power outages across the state.

These power outages in Texas have left millions of people across the state to fend for themselves.

Among many flaws in the Texas power grid, one of them stands out to people: the frozen wind turbines. 

Most of Texas’s energy losses came from failures to winterize the power-generating systems and things like fossil fuel pipelines. 

However, the loss of power of a 2.7 million home is due to Texas’s failed and frozen wind turbines, per The Daily Mail

The frozen wind turbines are a significant talking point of progressives who search for alternative power sources due to “Global Warming.”

Are Democrat policies slowly destroying America?*

For many conservatives, this was a perfect example of how “progressive energy” isn’t always reliable.

Texas Representative Dan Crenshaw Tweeted, “Bottom line: Thank God for baseload energy made up of fossil fuels… had our grid been more reliant on the wind turbines that froze, the outages would have been much worse.”

Coal, gas, and nuclear also lost considerable amounts of power because of the cold, according to Texas’s Electric Reliability Council (ERCOT).

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, defended her “Green New Deal” after Crenshaw challenged it. 



“The infrastructure failures in Texas are literally what happens when you *don’t* pursue a Green New Deal,” AOC said.

From the reports coming out of Texas, it seems that the facts contradict Ocasio-Cortez again.

Many of the power outages are caused by the state of Texas relying on wind turbines for energy.

In turn, it’s created a shortage of natural gas in Texas as well.

The energy alternatives that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez advocates for were the very things that caused these so-called “infrastructure failures” that AOC refers to.

While AOC accuses the state of Texas of not being prepared, Texas politicians are clapping back and showing AOC who’s boss.

Fox’s Sean Hannity interviewed Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, and he responded to Ocasio-Cortez by saying, “[The blackouts] shows how the Green New Deal would be a deadly deal for the United States of America … Our wind and our solar got shut down and they were collecting more than 10% of our power grid and that thrust Texas into a situation where it was lacking power in a statewide basis… as a result it just shows that fossil fuel is necessary.”

The events in Texas has served as a brutal wake-up call to many Americans.

People are learning that it might be unwise to rely on any single source for energy, especially if it is an unconventional one.
