    A Texas nonprofit rescued approximately 3,500 "cold-stunned" sea turtles from record-breaking temperatures that walloped the area and fought to keep the animals warm during a days-long power outage.

Don't worry. Every town around south padre has shelters opened up for people. People that had power helped out family and neighbors that lost power. Businesses and churches with power held their own food drives. And alot of the volunteers who helped the turtles were out of power and and water themselves. They didn't sit home and whine. This is Texas. We take care of our own

They have warming centers for people, people cannot get through the snow to them. The turtles are going into a shelter designated for animals not a human warming center. Shelters for people have specific standards that have to be followed like bathrooms and cots.

@Iowangal Smith educate yourself before you comment. I live in the area. There's a turtle rescue organization that has been there for 40 years, started by an amazing former female world war 2 pilot. Helping endangered injured turtles and protecting their nesting grounds. The area is a close knit community. Local residents did alot of the rescuing including my daughter and son-in-law. And took them to the rehab center. When that was full, The city allowed the use of the convention center building. Oh and neither of those places had power until yesterday.

@Ch28 Global warming and global cooling are normal natural processes. what we contribute to the process is very hard to assess.. There is a scientific consensus for climate change cycles and the recent warming trend. but there is no consensus on human contribution. We can't afford Green New deal or socialism. Not from a position of weakness deep in debt. what we needed is 8 years of strong economy and the highest employment numbers in history. If that had continued the debt would easily roll downward. Slowly at first but gaining speed over time. Snowball effect of finance. It doesn't happen overnight just like reaching goals doesn't happen overnight. With patience and a strong economy we could reach the day when we can afford the changes that we need, but every household knows you don't go on a spending spree when you're deep in debt. Another ice age will come. They will wish we had contributed more to global warming. But most scientists have no illusions that we could somehow stop an ice age. This should tell you something about how little of an effect we actually have. Can you stop the weather from getting cold? If the entire world turns up their furnaces on a cold night does this affect distant galaxies? Heat is lost to space. We are not Venus. There is no significant blanket covering the Earth. It is gases. If gas was a good blanket we would not fill our walls. Changing the percentages of atmospheric gas? That turns us into Venus? The atmospheric pressure on Venus is 92 times that of Earth. Do you really think we have added so much more blanket to the atmosphere when heat radiates into space?

Shhhhhhh, they changed the propagandas name to "climate change" that way they came blame cold weather changes on it as well. Your not supposed to call it Global Warming anymore. Just like how wee used to call spreading apart "keeping physical distance" But now they want us to "social distance". Probably so we don't get together and start asking questions about who these people dying from Covid really are xD

@eGirl well I apologize then. I’m just disappointed at what Republicans have done in Texas, it’s infuriating. I had to fly out my mother in law to CT to save her from being frozen to death. Texas turned into North Korea overnight with some snow and cold, it’s unacceptable. The Republicans of Texas have deregulated everything to fill their pockets with cash.

But it is people that saved your beloved turtles. It is fine to be cautious but you should lose the paranoia enjoying the human race no matter how messy it can be. We feel betrayed, we feel mistrust, we feel threatened. Most of that isn't even real. Most of the harm from humans is within our own emotions. You harm yourself. Cut them slack don't expect them to be perfect since you are not. Certainly don't project expectations. You might feel that someone is being selfish. Of course that does happen, everyone does have an obligation to provide for their own. Survival. So don't blame them for not caring for you. You are supposed to care for yourself. And if you are a beacon of positive energy and a contributor instead of a source of negativity you will be loved and supported. I helped 10 people over 5 years. None of them paid me back. They didn't make any changes so their lives stayed in the same rut. My help didn't make any real difference it just allowed them foolish money to blow on drugs or buying things they didn't even need. Then the water bill would be shut off again and their toilet wouldn't flush. Only one of them changed and turned her life around. She had been messing things up for so long that her family's had stopped wanting to help her. I counseled her to block meth. She made the decision to stop destructive behaviors, move back with family. Since she was being proactive her family stepped up to help. She turned her life around. No she is not depressed, paranoid, or focused on the bad things that happened. She realized that it was up to her. The other nine whose lives remain miserable all had the same thing in common. their minds were full of junk. Anger, regret, blame, guilt. If you set goals your mind fills up with how to achieve them. You become forward looking. There's no more room for junk. Only the happiness of making progress. Pride of accomplishment. Unhappy is a lack of positive contribution. Studies have proven that when people begin to contribute to society because they love the human race, because they care about offspring, future generations, because they have joined the human race in all its messiness, that is when their happiness levels skyrocket. when they spread positive vibes instead of complaining that others aren't doing it. You can't control them but you can control yourself. You can't contribute to society if you are afraid of everyone. Bravery is involved. Caution is normal. Then you realize how easy it is to spread happiness everywhere you go. So that happiness comes from within, it's not depending on how other people behave. It's the belief that you are the Master and Commander of your own mind and your own emotions and you create your own Utopia. No one else gives it to you. at that point the very fact of your own contentment is an inspiration and a contribution. As you think so you feel. If you become the commander of your mind then you are also the commander of your emotions. You become the commander of your own outcome. Setbacks are normal. They do not stop someone who has set goals. It is possible to slap on blinders to the past as though it doesn't even exist. Remember the good. Forget the bad. Better yet become forward looking since dwelling on the past rarely contributes. Good luck! Save the turtle! Don't expect all turtles to treat you right. Some will betray you. 😳
