Didn't know Yahoo, was also a supermarket tabloid...

I know CO2 monitors work. You confirmed, what most of us believed, that CO2 levels vary quite a bit, constantly.

What interested me, was the Yahoo story about how CO2 monitors could reduce the spread of Covid-19... Several years ago, I had a project idea, and shopped quite a bit for CO2 sensors. I never really found one, that fit my needs, any where near the price I wanted. But I did learn about how they work. I don't see anyway those sensors could have anything to do with Covid-19. I was just curious, how they are connecting the two. Are they using them as covid detectors, where they can identify infected people, as they pass by the monitor?

There are no federal regulations for the price of natural gas.



This is something that will probably "spur" (it's a pun) change in Texas. This can hurt Texas' economy more than the pandemic. All anyone has to say is the power companies have no incentive to increase production when they profit from not meeting the needs of their customers. And this will hurt a lot of businesses because businesses also use gas.
The governor of Texas is getting involved. A Texas newspaper mentions some of the energy bills that people got ranging from $5,000 to $17,000.

The GAS companies increased prices while cutting production. And they blamed that on electric companies not generating electricity because they had their gas supply stopped. Read the news. And I think the Fort Worth newspaper is credible. You guys are ignoring the source of the news.
All you guys spread is disinformation because you're ignored in your political forum. Besides, according to Howard Stern among others, Trump thinks his supporters are disgusting. He just likes the power he gets from them but doesn't like them.

son, this is absurdly funny. It only shows that people today are looking to be entertained. What you and ISN'T are posting is because of a "reprinted" story on yahoo.
Why when a Fort Worth newspaper publishes a story do you seek to discredit as being garbage? Why should "gas" be allowed to go from $2.40 to $179 per thousand cubic feet because it got cold outside?
Where I live, the prices are controlled because of regulation and when Kentucky gets as cold as Texas was, I don't notice the increase in my bill like they do. You know, going from $33 to $5,000.00. But that is what the GOP represents so everyone should expect you guys to spread disinformation about GOP practices and what relates to them. That's all you, ITN, gfm, Harvey, etc. are doing.
And that's because you guys are defending the party and its practices.

p.s., I am registered as an Independent because I do not support either party.
The "middle ground" like the "Middle Class" that's becoming smaller is what Made America Great. But now we're merely World Beaters. sigh

I'm not making any such claim. Residents in Texas are and they can't sue their gas provider. This is why the governor of Texas is involving himself in this.
If the temepratures dropped where I live like they did in Texas, my gas bill won't show it. Yet the owner of the Dallas Cowboys made a lot of money by price gouging.
With the stadium for his football team, Texas paid him $335 million to build it. That was money he saved while making money. And the price increases in Texas are supported (proved as being correct) by the natural gas association.
If I pay less than $5 US for 1,000 cubic feet or 28.3 cubic meters, in Texas, $179.
Why the cold weather doesn't bother me. I am in the plan where I pay the same each month. At the end of the business year, I pay the difference which I can afford.
Hopefully you will notice the difference between $5 and $179 for the same amount of energy. There is no defending screwing people over like that. But Trumpsters will say, Yeah, that's the way we do business.

An example of how Republicans are getting rich.
My savings is gone," said Scott Willoughby, a 63-year-old Army veteran who lives on Social Security payments in a Dallas suburb. He said he had nearly emptied his savings account so that he would be able to pay the $16,752 electric bill charged to his credit card — 70 times what he usually pays for all of his utilities combined. "There's nothing I can do about it, but it's broken me."
This is reprinted from the New York Times. God Bless Texas and the GOP it represents.
https://www.yahoo.com/news/lights-stayed-during-texas-storm-160028286.html
I think with the media, just so many great stories to tell, which ones to avoid? China is promoting this as why communism is a success. In Texas, they can't afford to heat their homes.
For Republicans, why oversight is a problem. People can't afford their bills for electricity. It's a free market system. Don't heat your home when it is cold and rates will be lower. Just basic economics. And if you can't afford to pay over $10,000, try a socialist country. Problem solved.
You Republicans have begged for this. Free market capitalism works. And everything else is communism.

This story on yahoo is reprinted from The Guardian.
https://www.yahoo.com/news/republicans-eye-federal-funds-help-155458821.html

Texas Republicans will use federal funds to help pay exorbitant energy bills hitting ordinary Texans after a deep freeze crippled the state this week, a senior congressman said on Sunday.


From another source, The Hill;
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/texas-gop-congressman-federal-disaster-aid-will-help-homeowners-with-high-utility-bills/ar-BB1dSHnC

A Texas congressman said Sunday that homeowners in his state who are facing shockingly high electric payments and damage to their homes resulting from recent winter weather would be eligible for aid from the federal government.


And then there's this which might be the same interview showed on Fox, ABC and CBS. https://keyt.com/politics/2021/02/21/texas-congressman-says-emergency-aid-will-help-texans-pay-high-energy-bills-charged-after-deep-freeze/

I say let Texans pay their own bills. They support their current economic system because it is based on free market enterprise with no government regulation which Texans like the GOP love. And if the state goes bankrupt because consumers will not be able to pay other bills or utility companies will go bankrupt because they can't pay for the energy they bought, that's their problem.
Texas made sure that it's energy needs were all met "in state" because Texans wanted autonomy. This should not allow them to ask for federal aid when their system has nothing to do with the federal government. It's their decision and they should accept the consequences of their independence.
Ain't that funny? A state wanting to be free of the United States until a natural disaster hits. Then it's we're Americans too!

I thought Texans wanted free market based capitalism. Regulation amounts to socialism. Say no to socialism and YES to CAPITALISM!!!

The Public Utility Commission of Texas on Sunday said electricity companies would be temporarily barred from cutting off service because of unpaid bills.

Gov. Greg Abbott announced the move earlier in the day, following an emergency meeting that was held Saturday to address the surging electricity bills some Texans were receiving after the devastating winter storm.

In a news release about the moratorium, the commission said it issued a series of orders timed to prevent Texans with unpaid bills from losing power on Monday. It said the orders were "intended to protect Texas electricity customers while leaders in the state consider solutions for the financial aftershocks of the winter storm grid event."

keepit, this is Seth Meyers going off on Fox news people. His rant is because they were talking about Joe Biden's dog and how "scruffy" it looks. He thinks there are more serious issues that need to be dealt with but that's the GOP, just trying to move the goal posts to "real issues".
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xinYwmF_9A8&feature=youtu.be

What's funny is how Texas' public officials were saying that the private sector is responsible the people of Texas. That's for things like having food or water during what happened or even be willing to go several days without heat, water and electricity because Texans don't care for federal regulation.
I doubt they'll notice that Oklahoma had a better go of things. Fewer people went without necessary utilities for less time.

It seems that Harris County in Texas is going to look into leaving ERCOT. A neighboring county is not a part of Ercot and apparently didn't have the same problems.
From the Houston Chronicle which it seems is in Harris County Texas.

Harris County should consider leaving the state's main power grid after it failed to prevent widespread blackouts for more than half of Houston-area residents last week, Precinct 2 Commissioner Adrian Garcia said Monday.

Garcia has asked the Commissioners Court to explore what authority it has to sever ties with the Electric Reliability Council of Texas, which oversees the grid that powers all of the state except for El Paso, parts of the Panhandle and a group of counties in East Texas.
https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/After-blackout-crisis-Garcia-says-Harris-County-15970559.php


You can highlight the text to read it. Harris County is home to ~4,000,000 residents and was hit hard by the failure of ERCOT.

Did Texans even have a say in this market strategy that both political leaders and utility companies wanted?

Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick said that Texans faced with huge electricity bills "gambled" in the hope of a cheap deal, and ended up losing.

Patrick commented Wednesday on the large charges facing some in the wake of the devastating winter storms in his state. He suggested that those in trouble would likely get help, but said that in the future customers should "read the fine print" of such deals.

C'mon man, if people elect their state legislature and they allow for a "real" capitalist system, who is responsible for as Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys said, We hit the jackpot!
And of the $1.5Billion price tag for his stadium, $335 million was financed by tax payers. This helps Jerry Jones to make even more money.
And that's capitalism at work. China is simply loving this.

That's what, about 5% of the project? Not really a bad investment, considering how much money is spent, outside of the stadium. Hotels, restaurants, bars, drugs, prostitutes, all good for the economy, for many years. Stadiums aren't used just for football either, since they still cost money, in the off season.

It's actually 22.3% with the .3 actually representing 1/3.
At the same time, couldn't a $1.165 Billion stadium have served the same purpose? Then those savings could help Texans afford their cheap energy. That cheap energy could cost Texans jobs which would hurt the economic development that the stadium was meant to represent.


I just need to have Sum Fun today.

And Harvey, if you served in the military or the USCG then you'd know that bases improve an economy. With a stadium, there needs to be an economy for it to help the "local economy".
This simply means that it increases the economic activity around it while it decreases economic activity where the original income is earned.
Myself, I think with the profits the owners receive has the overall effect of removing money from the economy.
