Swalwell Made Fun Of Texas For Power Issues. Now He’s Reminding His State To Brace For Blackouts

DW:

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) reminded residents of the Golden State to reduce power consumption on Tuesday to avoid blackouts less than two months after he mocked Texas for similar problems.

In July, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas asked residents to cut power usage to prevent rolling blackouts, which officials did not need to implement as a result of residents and businesses voluntarily reducing consumption. Swalwell responded on social media with a jab at the state’s tighter abortion regulations: “Texas. Where Republicans provide plenty of energy to control your body, but no energy to control your thermostat.”

On Tuesday evening, however, the California Independent System Operator narrowly averted imposing rolling blackouts, even though tens of thousands of residents experienced disruptions to their power supplies. Meanwhile, Swalwell amplified the agency’s call to avoid using major appliances and set thermostats to 78 degrees Fahrenheit or higher. “Let’s keep the lights on, California,” he said on social media. more here

  1. If I were interested in what a Chinese spy tastes like, Mr Swallwell impresses be a good “go to” resource. On most anything else, not so much.
