    Too bad Mc Carter don't live in Texas where they didn't have electric to have lights or heat, let alone recharge gimmick electric cars thanks to the green fantasy that the windmills were the answer to having a never ending supply of electricity !

    That's their own fault for not winterizing their windmills. Our windmills run all year, even when it's below zero.

    SS12, you never cease to amaze the masses with your liberal dribble. Gas here in Bama is still low relatively speaking. seen it for 2.29 and 2.33.

    The solution is to winterize your windmills when you know there is a chance for it to get below freezing at some point during the winter.

    Did the wind stop blowing in Texas? The windmills stopped because they froze.

    if every single windmill in Texas quit working at the same time it would decrease the total power supply to the state by about 25% at the very worst......but they all didn't.

    What now?
    Where is the move over flag when you need it?????

    For starters, no power grid has the capacity to handle a 25% drop in supply. When there is a higher than normal electricity use with every home running electric heaters when the temp drops, that makes it even worse. On top of that, Texas is dumb enough to isolate themselves from the rest of the country's powergrid.

    It sometimes snows in Texas. Significant freezes like this should have been factored into their planning. Other states don't shut down when the temp gets below zero.

    Other states shut down when their leaders iq hits zero.......a bunch of recent examples of that.


    I live in a state that shuts down with a few inches of snow, your drivel quotient is maxed out for today sport.
