Senator Cruz going to Cancun whilst Texas doesn't have electricity is a terrible look
I mean Senator Cruz continuing to defend insurrectionists who tried to lynch his colleagues wasn't a great look either. Not sure he's really that bothered is he as long as he can keep feeding "the base"?

A lot of them are blaming the new green deal - which hasn't even been enacted yet.

Many are blaming renewable energy - which is just a lie. The wind turbines are mostly fine except for a few that have had difficulty, and apparently, solar power is even more efficient in cold weather. (Unless covered by snow).

It's actually the fossil fuel reactors that are causing the problem.

Although despite all his rhetoric defending Trumpís actions in all of this, deep down he will have been devastated that Trump didnít get convicted by the Senate, his path to the 2024 Republican nomination would have been easier if it that had of happened

Quite. Both he and Josh Hawes are a bit pointless if Trump runs whereas if he's disbarred (and he may yet be by criminal convictions) Cruz can pose as the continuity fascist candidate and Hawes can do continuity to the base and his "a fascism you can trust" schtick to the trad Republicans and business.

Yep.  Made worse by the fact the wind turbines would be just fine if someone has simply done the equivalent of popping the anti-freeze on them a few days ahead of time and the fact Texas decided to separate itself from the National Grid in an attempt to reduce regulations.  That now means they have no way of importing energy to cover their production shortfall.

It's all the coal, gas and even Nuclear power plants that are struggling because they all need water as a coolant.  How ironic, it's too cold to cool them!

Plenty of people have been reminding Texans that wind turbines work pretty well in the Nordics - great timing given GM have just started an Ad campaign to push electric cars with a tongue in cheek advert starting Will Ferrell having a fight with Norway.
