The Biden administration says a severe winter storm engulfing Texas and nearby states was likely caused by climate change.
Hundreds of thousands of people continue to be without power and water.
Meanwhile, Texas Senator Ted Cruz is also facing criticism for holidaying in Mexico during the crisis.
Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.

      Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here
      are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

      REPENT we must accept Jesus/Yeshua as MESSIAH &
      KING…THEN you must live according to the LAWS of YeHoVaH. We are to be DOERS
      of HIS WORD…and LIVE as YESHUA/JESUS lived.
      The Laws and Commandments of YeHoVaH is the plumbline that each of us
      will be judged against.

      The once saved always saved is a FALSE DOCTRINE…JESUS told
      us to ENDURE UNTIL THE END!

      REPENT!! Start observing the Sabbath on Friday sunset to
      Saturday sunset that is what YeHoVaH COMMANDED…it has never been changed by
      HIM…but by the Catholic Church and then adopted by the daughters of the
      Harlot. REPENT.

      The SABBATH is a MARK between YeHoVaH and HIS children…REPENT
      NOW before it is too late!

    Theory of Texas Power Grid Failure:

    While “officials” blame the current ice-age weather crisis (in Texas) on climate change due to global warming, many people who live there are saying that the snow that they are encountering “ain’t natural.” In other words, the freezing weather conditions and snow surge in Texas may be the result of weather manipulation and/or weather weaponization by the controllers (ruling elite). According to the Fullerton Informer, the Texas power grid failed because it takes a tremendous amount of energy to accomplish a major weather catastrophe. He further states that modern day weather patterns are heavily dictated by “electromagnetically induced” scaler waves in the air caused by the dispersion of electromagnetic nano-magnetic particles by aircraft.

      It goes pretty well compared to California. There’s a reason why more than 100k people move out of there each year.

    Ummmmm……5 ain’t that cold.
    It is for old folk….and people with medical situations. And pipes.
    But not for an adult.

    Within 25 mins I could have a completely insulated shelter within my 2nd story apartment, that I could live in for months, with no utilities.

    They should be concerned for the old folk….and those that need help….but an adult man, crying his eyes out?!?!

    READ Dept of Energy order 202-21-1

    Texas requested for the extra capacity and was told to just rely on outside sources because their clean coal and Nat gas plants are “too dirty”

    The most interesting part is the order says NOTHING about carbon DIOXIDE only cites MONOXIDE as pollution 🤔🤔🤔🤔

    Apparently, climate change includes not only “global warming”, but also “global cooling”. The reason for the first is more or less clear, but the reason for the second remains unknown. Will this influence the Paris Climate Treaty? And Ted Cruz is just … Senator: since there is nothing he can do to help his electorate, he decided not to freeze and to improve his health in a more suitable climate.

    But it’s not like they weren’t warned. Texas had a similar situation about a decade ago. Yet did nothing to fix so this should surprise no one.

    So now we have a worse situation that could have been avoided. Why is Texas the only state that is getting hit so hard here though. 🤔

    ​路透社说,“她将许多德克萨斯人的脆弱与中国人在刚刚结束的农历新年假期中的节日体验进行了对比。”而且援引了华姐姐的话:“不缺吃不缺穿,不挨饿不受冻,这是最真实的基本人权。与此同时,在德克萨斯州……数百万人发现自己陷入了家里没有电和暖气的可怕境地,几十人甚至因此失去了生命。”“这使中国人民更加深刻地认识到什么是真正的人权,使我们更加坚信中国走在正确的道路上。我们对未来充满信心。”

    This is the definition of corruption. The Texas power-grid was de-regulated over the past few decades, cut off from other energy networks, and privatized to avoid federal regulations to enrich the bank accounts of guys like the ERCOT CEO. Governor Abbot and the Texas Legislature have worked hard for decades to accomplish that. Profits before people. The ERCOT CEO and execs pay themselves millions of dollars but refuse to winterize their equipment because that would cut in to their bottom line. Our Texas legislators are owned by special interests like ERCOT and that is why they privatize and de-regulate (not making these crooks winterize their equipment) as much as possible. None of these people that caused this will suffer any consequences.
