Dr. Huber describes the situation in Texas. You might be surprised at the lack of organization!

Amazing just how much disorganization there was according to Dr. Huber

    Hi larry…If you listen to this , then a least give this Doc. a little credit for what he just said about , vacine’s & statins….There are many out there , who care more about their patents , than you think…..They are not all under the thumb of big pharma…….IMO.

      no need to comment on ancient history…glta, markets weaken and yields rise…..correlated?

          I know that Al…But the comment was toward Irish regarding Statins and Vaccines…The danger of statins long term use actually has been understood for decades because your brain needs the cholesterol to function…The vaccine crucible of destruction has been reported on for decades as well…Hence ancient history,,,and notably both are creating rapidly increasing populations of cripples…..autism and Alzheimer epidemics as major defining characteristics…

    The most moronic decision, however, was that ERCOT shut off power to natural gas pumping stations. This, because of having to not allow air into transmission pipes caused gas power stations to cut down. By the time power was re-coupled to the gas pumps, mechanical valves had frozen.

    • On February 21, 2021 at 5:18 pm,
      Big Al says:

      Yes, they certainly did freeze up!

        As you can see from the supply graphs, that I managed to dig up. (Posted below) it is not clear that gas valves froze. It just looks to me that they ran out of capability without solar and wind power.
        Nuclear consistently worked at max. Coal was constant and gas was increased until they could increase no more…….gas generation did not drop off.
        The system was just never capable of supplying enough power without wind……..design flaw.

    Dr. Huber, they did try to get nat. gas back on line within 8 hours.
    Further, had they not shut down partially and had lost the whole grid, you would be looking at many weeks of substantial black-outs.

      Yes, it would have been even worse, but it was bad enough!

    Lost my power and phones last Sun night. It was 14F Mon morning and a winter wonderland for 3 days. It was 44F inside my house on Mon and Tues and no TV or internet or cable or phone. But I could play my guitar and take walks in the snow. No pipes burst and I never lost water, so I was lucky. I’m fixing a crockpot of beef bone broth tonight. Lost my pumpkin vine and avocado tree, and I am worried about my azaleas.

      Azaleas are a lot stronger than you might think. Let me know how they turn out. We did not loose ours!

    Al, I did not know azaleas grew up in Washington. Now I have hope they can make it. I soaked them with water today, all 60 of them. Some are 8 ft. tall.

      Dang……..those are some tall azaleas……we are lucky , if they survive three seasons here.

        Many of my azaleas are 60 years old or more.

            We don’t have Rodos down here. Must be too hot for them in our summers. My mom planted azaleas all around our house back in the 1950’s. I’d hate to lose them now.

      I would bet that they will be fine. Azeleas are very popular up here.

    Here is a graph of power distributed by ERCOT in the period just before the outages:

    Contrary to what lying green democrats are stating, you can see that the wind turbines simply failed to produce power…..even though winds were blowing.

    Israel, with over half the population vaccinated and Scotland with about a third of the population vaccinated (and all old age pensioners that wish it) are showing reductions of hospitalizations of 94% and 91% respectively.
