Schumer MOCKS Texas over deadly energy crisis: 'Hope they learned a lesson'

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer disparaged and mocked Texas on Sunday as the Lone Star State battles the crisis triggered by record-breaking winter weather last week.

When snow, ice, and blistering arctic air engulfed Texas and the deep south last week, millions of Texans were left in the dark and cold for days.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas — which is responsible for supplying the majority of the state's electricity for more than 25 million Texans — has come under fire for vulnerabilities in the Texas power grid.

In fact, Texas was just "seconds and minutes" away from experiencing catastrophic failure with its energy grid that would have left the state in the dark for months, the Texas Tribute reported.

"Texas is the only state in the continental US to run its own stand-alone electricity grid and had not been forced to weatherize because it is not subject to federal oversight."

"The bottom line is, Texas thought it could go it alone and built a system that ignored climate change," Schumer said while speaking in Manhattan, the New York Post reported.

"It was not what's called resilient, and now Texas is paying the price," he mocked. "I hope they learned a lesson."

"When we build power, when we build anything now, we have to take into account that climate change is real, or people will have to be caught the way the people in Texas were," Schumer said.

"When I wrote the [Hurricane] Sandy bill, $60 billion for New York, we made sure everything was resilient," he added. "When they built back the subways, built back this, built back that, they were going to be resistant to climate changes, and we have to do that."

The cause of it is rapid climate change you massive faggot. Do you even understand written text? If we give up on renewables, this will keep happening more and more often.

average Texas citizen isn't in charge of the electrical grid believe it or not

So we let China pollute the planet using coal to manufacture solar panels, to achieve reliance on a method of generating electricity that would have been of absolutely no value in the scenario?

He's not even talking about alternative energy sources, all he's saying is that Texas leadership and energy companies were too stupid/greedy to take steps to make their power grid better able to withstand winter weather, even though it's blindingly obvious that climate change has been causing extreme winter weather for years.

Because you’re talking to a shill who is paid by oil companies and other firms heavily invested in oil like the Bank of America, who fund green energy projects to reduce demand for oil products and thus increase the price of oil.

Oil execs are all sitting around a table with the Biden admin, right now, lighting $100 bills and lighting cigars with them.

Basically, they couldn’t see the future and predict when a once in a century weather event would occur and this is because of greed + climate change?
