The Texas power scandal

June 7, 2021

IncaDovesWe came very close to an even larger catastrophe than happened. The Texas legislature is doing little to make sure it doesn’t recur. Abbott knew ahead of the blackout about the natural gas problems, and lied in response. Tim De Chant has done better reporting on that story than most. Which follows the pattern that any story with a significant technical component gets better reporting from the nerd side than from the mainstream.

Inca doves are a particularly close-knit species. The family shown huddles even on a balmy summer evening. Alas, the tepehuaje where they’re roosting did not survive the winter freeze.
