A winter storm caused mass chaos in Texas this week. Power outages were initiated by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas early on Monday morning. This means hundreds of thousands of Texans are without electricity for short periods of time. Temperatures fell into the teens near Dallas and 20s around Houston. Hundreds of thousands of Texas residents are still without power.
According to reports nearly half of the wind energy is down in West Texas after the turbines froze.

But that didn’t stop the resident idiot of the US House of Representatives from spouting off.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed Texas for the power outages saying the outages, “Are quite literally what happens when you *don’t* pursue a Green New Deal.”
