Well under a Greg Abbott scenario, the rest of the US is being asked to underwrite the bad decisions of Texas.
How is that any more realistic?
This is a short term problem which will be settled as the supply chains catch up. The decisions that Texas & Houston have made to ignore environmental & urban planning science will have consequences for decades.
So, why aren’t you addressing the real moral hazard here? Should the rest of us donate anything to Texas at this time of crisis or are we only encouraging their blindness to the long term consequences of climate change?
