Anyway, now the cultbots are trying to say the wind turbines didn't fail, when there's pics of them at a standstill frozen solid with helicopters flying over them trying to de-ice them.
It does seem however that the bulk of the problem is not whether or not the windmills FAILED. They did - but they don't produce the overwhelming majority of the energy in Texas that natural gas does. From what I read, non-winterization of gas lines is the biggest culprit.
Second culprit would appear to be the way the entire state is wired - the grid itself.
This cold snap DOES however point out what we all ought to see - whether you want green energy or not - and that is that most green energy sources are at least now, not robust enough to withstand catastrophe. I mean, it DOESN'T MATTER if the failure of the windmills caused the blackouts - they STILL FAILED. It doesn't MATTER if the infrastructure is the problem - they STILL FAILED. If it had been there, the result WOULD HAVE BEEN WORSE had Texas gone full tilt windmill (pun intended).
