Texas Republicans deny climate change

Climate proposals withered at the Texas Capitol this year. Proposals to improve energy efficiency failed. Bills that sought to limit greenhouse gas emissions in Texas were ignored, and legislation to block cities from taking action on climate change passed. - Texas Tribune

The Republican controlled Texas House and Senate along with other GOP elected state officials have yet to officially recognize that climate change is real, and that Texas needs to prepare for it. More was done to protect the state’s oil and gas industry than to deal with climate change in the recent legislative session. - Texas Public Radio

Oil and gas companies spent more than 20 million U.S. dollars on lobbying Republican Party members in the 2024 election cycle. The Republican Party has historically been the greatest recipient of oil & gas companies' lobbying expenditures in the United States. Between the 1990 and 2024 election cycles, the oil & gas industry significantly ramped up its spending on lobbying for political parties. Whereas spending aimed towards the Democratic Party saw only slight fluctuations, lobbying for the Republican Party surged to a peak of nearly 66 million U.S. dollars in the presidential election year 2020. This compared to 12.35 million U.S. dollars which went to the Democratic Party. The greatest recipient that year was President Trump.

Ted Cruz escapes to cancun when there is a disaster

Cruz flew to Cancun amid weather crisis

"Photos of Cruz fueled outrage at how he had left Texas during a crisis. Millions of people in Texas face water shortages, with reservoirs near empty. Freezing temperatures have caused power blackouts at water treatment facilities and burst water pipes supplying homes, despite attempts by some homeowners to insulate them from the cold using blankets. About 13 million Texans have been told to boil water that may be contaminated. - BBC

"People in Texas are literally freezing to death and yet Ted Cruz went on vacation to Cancun," - Pramila Jayapal.
"Ted Cruz not only fled the state while millions of vulnerable Texans are without heat and water but specifically diverted police resources to get him through security and crowds faster for his outgoing vacation flight," - Charlotte Clymer.
