    in addition to avoiding proper argument via sarcasm and meme, i notice that telling people they are upset is very popular. its an attempt to make a person defensive and deflect from the issue.

    telling people they are angry or upset, along with telling them they are racists, these are cornerstones of the frivolous arguments of the woke millennial left.

    In other words you’re arguing about nothing. The problem for fossil, wind and nuclear was lack of winterization Where wind turbines weren’t prepared they failed. Where fossil fuel plants and infrastructure weren’t winterized they failed. The only nuclear plant that tripped did so because a sensor failed.
    I think this failure has two sources. The first and most important was the lack of ERCOT’s effective planning and preparation. The second is to determine how much an event like this should be expected. When are you expected to foresee such an event and address a response?

    For Texas to spend hundreds of millions to winterize everything would be like Nebraska preparing for a hurricane.

    This is now the second time since 2011 that's there's been power outages due to inclement weather. How many people have to die before someone takes action?

    Whatever works for you...maybe yoga? I hear that works wonders at calming the mind.

    I refuted his inaccurate, misleading, and perhaps falsified data showing wind was the primary culprit in the outage. No one with an ounce of integrity believes that.

    I don't think kcal will appreciate being called "woke millennial left."

    I'm sorry to hear you're feeling that way. If yoga isn't your thing, perhaps meditation?
