Lots of talk about causes of dire Texas power outages. Gas, coal, nuclear = 80% of TX electric generation. Wind 17%. Fossil fuel/nuclear plant outages much bigger reason than "frozen wind turbines." Power very reliable in much colder MN winters. #mnwx #txwx #ArcticBlast2021 pic.twitter.com/VPp8j5ElKt
