Texas is now “encouraging” people to wear masks like we encouraged power plants to winterize. https://t.co/UKP2Ksa3MW

Just heard from the House Joint Committee Investigating the #TexasBlackout that @austinenergy gave more load to the energy grid than we consumed.

A Houston renter who lost her job in the pandemic gave her landlord a CDC form to stop her eviction. But they still filed to evict her. She says Judge Jeff Williams asked her: can't you just live with your parents? She said no. She was evicted anyway. https://t.co/cjI25JY1mS

Do you know why we can fly a helicopter on Mars, but can’t turn on a light in Texas? Because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas

Texas friends- TAKE YOUR ELECTRIC BILLS OFF AUTO-PAY. My billing cycle just started this week and it’s already 8 TIMES my normal payment with 25 days left to go. I sat in the dark and barely used my heat. We need to demand relief for these bills. This is so criminal and evil.

Enough is enough, Texas. Our approach to government is fundamentally broken. We deserve better. I wrote a column for @statesman to that effect. Share if you agree. https://t.co/80fszXKkXI

This is not a third world country. This is Houston, Texas. I spotted a line of people filing up buckets of water from a spicket at Haden Park. Why? Millions either have no water or are under a Boil Water Advisory. https://t.co/VHYH5Hbqjj

BREAKING: Austin Energy says they have permission to restore 16 circuits across the city (not sure how many homes/customers) and will prioritize those who have been out the longest. However, the power will not stay on indefinitely, they warn.

The infrastructure failures in Texas are quite literally what happens when you *don’t* pursue a Green New Deal.
