    Can anyone in Texas tell me when the last power plant was built?

    Mexico supplies electricity to wintry Texas

    Wed Feb 2, 6:47 pm ET

    MEXICO CITY (AFP) Mexico's state electricity company on Wednesday started supplying electricity to the US state of Texas, where demand shot up amid unusually cold temperatures and caused power outages.
    Mexico's Federal Electricity Commission "was determined to support Texas with electrical energy faced with the problems the state is suffering due to climatological conditions," a statement said.
    An energy transfer of 280 megawatts began at midday (1800 GMT) via the north Mexican border cities of Nuevo Laredo, Reynosa and Piedras Negras, it added.
    Texas Governor Rick Perry said in a statement that power and emergency management experts were working with utility providers to ensure power was restored as quickly as possible.
    "Until that happens, I urge businesses and residents to conserve electricity to minimize the impact of this event," Perry added.
    An epic winter storm Wednesday buried more than a third of the United States in drifting snow, sleet and ice that brought air and road travel to a halt.

    How bad is it when you need a third world shit hole to supply your electricity?

    Truthfully, it's not only the EPA...

    It's also all the people who bitch and moan and want to run their big screen TVs, heat pumps, microwaves, PCs, stereos, electric cars... but don't want a power plant or high tension lines and towers spoiling their view.

    It's simple: until we develop real, practical, tiny scale fusion (or some other technology) so that every house can provide its own power... we need power plants and transmission lines to get the power from the plant to the house.

    You want messed up? I live 5 miles from an oil pipeline and a refinery, the state has negligible gas taxes, and gas is 75 cents per gallon higher than the national average. The gas refined here is shipped to other states and is cheaper.
