    I’m sure everyone recalls a large majority of the state losing power when it was fucking cold and people ended up dying

    Now we might lose power because it’s hot as fuck

    For reference:

    Is the state of Texas actually working to improve their infrastructure? This isn’t going to be a thing much longer, is it?

    -Texas has 20 percent of the entire nation’s solar energy potential.

    -But they have implemented less solar-powered wattage than states with far less solar potential including New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.

    “So why is Texas's solar sector floundering when other energy sources, even other fledgling renewable-energy sources, are surging? In short, because a confluence of policy choices and economic forces have stunted the state's solar growth — and few solar advocates see hope that the state landscape will change anytime soon.”

    -Texas succession would be an Idiocracy sequel. But with guns.
