This is not a joke, below are actual posts from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who wants all of us to stop using fossil fuels.
As many of you know Texas experienced an extreme once in a lifetime winter storm that crippled their power grid after wind turbine’s froze.
The Electric Reliability Council of Texas told the Austin American Statesman reported:
Wind farms across the state generate up to a combined 25,100 megawatts of energy. But unusually moist winter conditions in West Texas brought on by the weekend’s freezing rain and historically low temperatures have iced many of those wind turbines to a halt.
As of Sunday morning, those iced turbines comprise 12,000 megawatts of Texas’ installed wind generation capacity.
The report went on to state that those turbines don’t usually spin at full capacity during this time of year however, the grid isn’t usually stressed like this either.
Green energy has been exposed and now pundits, members of congress, and the media are doing backflips trying to explain away the failure of these wind farms in Texas.
It is beyond parody.
The Green New Deal diva Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was beyond parody trying to explain why wind farms failed during the winter storm in Texas.
“The infrastructure failures in Texas are quite literally what happens when you *don’t* pursue a Green New Deal,” she wrote. “Weak on sweeping next-gen public infrastructure investments, little focus on equity so communities are left behind, climate deniers in leadership so they don’t long prep for disaster. We need to help people *now.* Long-term we must realize these are the consequences of inaction.”

It was green energy infrastructure that failed but, AOC wants you to believe that if there were more wind farms/green energy everything would have been fine. Even California Governor Gavin Newsom would disagree with that, when his power grid failed during a heat wave he admitted the state was relying too much on green energy.
Texas Gov. Abbott explains below that we should all be wary of the Green New Deal.

The media is also doing backflips claiming that wind turbines were not to blame. The Facebook fact checker website PolitiFact, ABC News, Time Magazine, and the list goes on are all blaming fossil fuels.
The company that manages Texas’ power grid said wind turbines were the initial cause of the states power issues that then caused a domino effect. Now, for the sake of politics the media and AOC want you to not to believe your eyes.
