The team at Cozumel Living would like to wish
Jason a very special Happy Birthday!



 

And Now It All Starts!

 
A miserable last week! Who would ever have predicted that in the Great State of Texas, the largest energy producer in the U.S., we would be sitting in subzero temperatures in our homes with no power and no water?  Almost every home in the state without power at some time; many with no power for days. Temperatures of 38 to 52 degrees in our homes not uncommon. Busted water pipes with water flowing through the house making it even more difficult as now no power and no water. And even when the weather finally changed on Saturday, still many with no water, busted pipes, and now the problem in the grocery stores where we find a shortage of even the most basic food items.
 
So how in the world did this all happen? Well, if you believe the finger pointing now going on, it was “the other guy that didn’t do what was needed.” The Governor blames ERCOT. ERCOT blames the Providers. The Providers blame the fact that the wind and solar generation facilities did not work because of the snow and cold. And to top it off, now the Democrats are blaming the Republicans! Take your pick. 
 
It is true that about 23% of the power for our electrical grid comes from wind and solar power. It is also true that this source did not work because of the extreme weather conditions. But why didn’t it work after it does work in colder states like Minnesota, and why doesn’t it work after the Providers being told previously to winterize those facilities? The extreme weather was certainly no surprise as the TV’s weather guys were telling us all how bad it was going to be the week before the actual event. But still the non-carbon related sources of generation did not work.
 
How about the rest of the Provider facilities? Well, unbelievably, many of these facilities could not operate because their equipment froze from the extreme weather as it was not winterized. ERCOT claims they told the Providers of the upcoming weather and advised the facilities to winterize their equipment. The Providers claim it is too expensive to do this for the unlikely event of such a drastic catastrophic event. 
 
The Governor says that ERCOT, the week before the weather conditions, had claimed that sufficient power was available to serve the State of Texas. ERCOT claimed that if had not taken the drastic step of the rolling blackouts, which in many cases led to long outages, when they did, the entire power grid would have failed, and the entire state would have been without power for weeks or months. The Texas Public Utility Commission, which in conjunction with the State Legislature overseas ERCOT, has remained relatively quite through all of the crisis. The Governor now is directing the State Legislature to implement legislation to ensure an event such as this never happens again. 
 
Who really didn’t do their job? In my opinion, it’s simple, none of them did! I learned a long time ago that a proven management principle is essential if one wants to guarantee the best chance for success. You have simply got to check on what has been directed to make sure it is actually getting done. It is commonly called “Management by walking around” or another way of saying “That which the boss checks gets done.” Clearly ERCOT didn’t check to see if the Providers winterized their equipment. The bosses at the Providers either didn’t direct that equipment be winterized or if they did , they forgot to check to see if it was done. The Governor and the PUC never checked to see if what ERCOT reported was correct. And the list goes on of who didn’t follow through on what they thought was happening. And we the citizens suffered because of all the ineptitude of the responsible “leaders”.
 
What will happen now? There will probably be a lot of hand wringing and continued finger pointing. A taskforce will likely be appointed to investigate why this happened and recommendations will be made as to how to prevent it in the future….probably just like the last recommendations which were made after the last major power outages in Texas in 1989 and 2011. Let’s hope they get it right this time and actually implement what is recommended and let’s hope they also remember some of the very basic management principles that might have prevented this disaster.

Labeling of coral transplants begins in Cozumel reef restoration program

As part of their ongoing restoration program, the Cozumel Parks and Museums Foundation began the process of labeling coral transplants (Elkhorn coral / Acropora palmata) in order to continue monitoring of the project in the Chankanaab Natural Park.
