Now Texas, the largest, by far, of any state in the country, producer of energy from natural gas and petroleum, can't supply electricity for its people. That is despite all that talk about how the Texas grid was the best and most reliable in the whole country.

Well, we better all take a lesson and make more solar farms and more wind generated power! What could go wrong?
Yeah, I heard part of the issue in Texas was that they had wind turbines freezing up.

Of all of the places for this to happen I'm super surprised it happened in Texas.

Roughly 33% of the US power grid is still tied to fossil fuels. Natural Gas burns clean anyway and it blows me away that we are not utilizing this clean burning resource more. We have endless amounts and we have so much of it companies for the most part shy away from these types of projects due to the low prices (they still drill them but not to any sizeable scale compared to oil).

I'll never get it but then again I'm just a Geologist in energy so what do I know.
