Sean Hannity and Texas governor blame solar power and wind power for energy blackouts in Texas
As Media Matters and many others have pointed out, these are complete and total lies.
Sorry but this is utterly psychotic. There’s an emergency in Texas *right now* and he’s dunking on the Green New Deal with complete lies about the source of the problem. https://t.co/PNzzr6juAR

It needs to be LOUDLY emphasized that this is a lie. Wind and solar power actually overperformed expected winter capacity in Texas. The state was crippled by frozen coal and gas plants, knocking out over 30 gigawatts of power. Sources below. https://t.co/qn9O6OJN3V
