The Deep Freeze and the Deadly Carbon Monoxide.

The Texas power crisis in February set off the worst carbon monoxide poisoning in recent history. Blacks and Latinos took a disproportionate toll of this epidemic. And while Texas finally passed a new law to require carbon monoxide alarms in homes around the state, the new policy is still weaker than the ones in most states and future catastrophes could happen again. How did the disaster happen? What’s been done to protect the residents? How can people prevent carbon monoxide poisonings?
