Cold snap. 180 Power generators are offline. Out of fuel to run the generators
Texas has among the lowest energy costs, and is proud to be business friendly (low regulations)
Those regulations had to do with, among other things, back up fuel supplies. You know, in case something disrupted supply.
So my question is: are the rest of the states obliged to send help? They are the ones that enjoyed the lower energy costs. Low tax state…proud to be business friendly.
This is sadly reminiscent of the Houston flooding a while back. Local Regs made storm sewers sub standard for the load, saving taxes. But why should the rest of the nation pay for their poor risk management?
