What makes Navalny so dangerous isn’t that he’s a “pro-Western liberal, anti-migrant nationalist, or political opportunist” like RT described him, but that he’s attempting to mislead dissatisfied people — and increasingly even children — into breaking the law by exploiting their frustrations with the state of affairs. The content of his political platform isn’t as bad as the means through which he’s seeking to implement it. This NATO agent is manipulating people for the purpose of provoking a Colour Revolution, hoping that the authorities’ legally justified but sometimes forceful response to his illegal protests can be decontextualized, misreported, and then weaponized to incite a self-sustaining cycle of unrest.
Millions of Texans found themselves without electricity, with so much of the state’s wind and solar energy producers rendered useless during an unusually severe snow and ice storm.
Pro-Kremlin disinformation related to renewable energy production, which is sometimes coupled with narratives about climate change, following the narrative that global warming is a "hoax" perpetrated by special interest groups like green business that stand to benefit from climate hysteria.
The widespread electricity failure in the American state of Texas was largely caused by freezing natural gas pipelines, not by wind and solar power palnts producing insufficient amount of energy. Prooduction from coal and nuclear plants dropped as well. A similar phenomenon played out in Kansas and other states.
According to Dan Woodfin, a senior director at ERCOT (Electric Reliability Council of Texas):
“About 61% of that power loss comes from thermal (coal, nuclear, gas) plants shutting down. Wind makes up just a fraction — 7 per cent or so, by some estimates — of the state’s overall mix of power generation.
According to Sam Newell, head of the electricity group at the Brattle Group, an energy consulting company that has advised Texas on its power grid:
"Wind was operating almost as well as expected, ..., It's an order of magnitude smaller" than problems with natural gas, coal and nuclear energy
