Millions of Texans are still without power and going to extreme lengths to stay warm, the mayor of Colorado City steps down after telling residents “the weak will perish,” and Fox News blames AOC’s Green New Deal for the power outages when poor oversight is the real culprit. #DailyShow #TrevorNoah #Texas

    So fellow earthlings, what is the plan when oil reserves are depleted about 2052? Gas? That will last about a decade. Coal? That will last until 2088 or so. Our grandchildren..if we have any, will have to sort it out. Or we can invest in a Green New Deal and humankind will prosper and endure. Sticking out heads in the sand is not an answer.

    The wind turbines were winterized. But not for that low of temperature because Texas never has had temps below 33degrees. The federal government put restrictions on the gas,coal and Nuclear that requires Texas to use the wind turbines that are being subsidized.

    If you're a Texan politician (I mean crook), just think for a second : which way do you think anyone who's been helped by AOC while you berrated them are going to vote next ? I'd start updating my resume if I were you, that's probably too forward-thinking for you.

    Wind turbines aren’t even the only form of renewable energy. I get that most people wouldn’t want to clean snow off of solar panels when they already have roads to worry about, but it’s harder to see how hydroelectric power wouldn’t help in this situation. I think the real problem is an overreliance on certain forms of energy, causing a higher risk of the whole system failing whenever certain things go wrong. Unfortunately, some people just don’t want to try new things.

    Yeah.. Texas has more than enough natural gas and oil to remain self sufficient. It's entirely the choice to rely on windmills(which are worse for the environment and at the tax payers expense) for power that has created this problem

    It is insulting. If I watched Fox News on a regular basis, I would be very angry. It’s an insult to the intelligence of a toad. The green new deal has not been implemented yet. It therefore means that it cannot be responsible for what happened down here. Plain and simple logic.

    I heard the wind turbines are not freezing in Alaska. How many households use the only 10% of natural resources being used in TEXAS. Which towns use all natural resources for electricity. And how many people live in them???????????????????????? I guess the GOP expects TEXANS to be dumb enough to believe the green deal is responsible. Instead of the investors lining their pockets with money that should have been used to buy or produce a more reliable product. I wonder if the people who made the turbines used in Texas also live there. Wonder how much money they made before the outages. I wonder who they are.

    ***CONGRATULATIONS to Trevor Noah for finally showing what type of person he really is in his latest promo commercials for his so-called show. He tells us we should “ROAST CORONAVIRUS SO HARD” He states coronavirus you got so many zits it looks like your exfoliating with pizza crust. Then. The coronavirus starts to cry and Trevor feels sorry for what he said to the coronavirus and says “ AHH, I FEEL BAD NOW” Unfortunately, this is not comedy. This is exactly how Trevor really feels about a Covid Virus that has Led to the following. HE FEELS BAD ABOUT OFFENDING CORONAVIRUS WITH THE BELOW ATROCITIES THAT HAVE OCCURRED TO ALL OF HUMANITY AND OUR FAMILIES A dramatic loss of human life worldwide. The economic and social disruption caused by the pandemic is devastating: tens of millions of people are at risk of falling into extreme poverty. The pandemic has decimated jobs and placed millions of livelihoods at risk. Nearly half of the world’s 3.3 billion global workforce are at risk of losing their livelihoods No income means no food. Border closures, trade restrictions and confinement measures have disrupted domestic and international food supply chains in which we all suffer. PLEASE WAKE UP AMERICA People like this who have a voice to millions of people worldwide should not have the ability to continue to have a platform as the LATE SHOW to spew his one-sided agenda to the masses. Trevor. As well as many other public figures in similar positions need to be held accountable for their one sided globalist views based on their beliefs and not be so closed minded that there are others who believe differently and that’s ok. That’s why we live in AMERICA and have law and a CONSTITUTION that our country was founded upon. Fortunately for Trevor. Since he is such a beloved character for the globalist agenda his past exploits were quickly squashed by the globalist in which he works for within BIG MEDIA. NOTE: A lot of people have not seen the real Trevor and have not forgot his past. Its funny that in such a CANCEL CULTURE we live in now he wasn’t cancelled long ago for his supposed offensive/hateful comments which were much more offensive than the majority of the unfortunate cancelled individuals of today. WHICH, by the way means anyone who speaks derogatory towards the left and their agenda who does not agree to their personal opinions. If you do. You are deemed a liar, conspiracy theorist, white supremacist or domestic terrorist. His show is supposed to be an Award-winning program that examines the day's biggest news stories in politics, pop culture, entertainment, sports and more. That description is the furthest from the truth. The show is simply about a puppet who is would be clinically deemed Self-Absorbed. Remember folks TREVOR SAYS YOU MUST TRUST SCIENCE. So, here is the clinical description of a Self-Absorbed person which is simply another term for a narcissistic personality. They are always on the defensive. They do not see the world from another person’s eyes. Anyone who opposes his views. They don’t see the big picture. A self-absorbed person thinks the world is just about them. They are imposing. They always think they are superior to others. They are so consumed by their own world and self-image They are extremely opinionated. They hide their insecurities behind a cloak of success. They devalue others. Constructive criticism is okay, but self-absorbed people always take criticism too far and use it as a weapon to allow them to devalue others. They can be arrogant. This is because they feel they are so important and better than every other person. A self-absorbed person can often be egotistical. They hide who they are. coming across as pretentious They are extremely selfish. They think they are great and the world out there is wrong. The previous is just one persons opinion as allowed for by the the Bill of Rights which are the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution. It spells out Americans' rights in relation to our government. It guarantees civil rights and liberties to the individual-like freedom of speech, press, and religion. NOTE: These rights should not be compromised no matter left or right when given a platform to promote ones-self and their personal beliefs. All issues should be equally presented and considered by all parties involved and not be suppressed/withheld as they are in todays society.

To be altruistic, I think this announcer needs to move in about new Texas illegal immigrant Guatemalans in with him, if he is so concerned. The grid is fed by 40% wind and solar, which was shut down. DOE issued a memo to stand down from bringing a m fossil plants. Math is racist, but too bad, it's the truth.
