Daily Caller: The Biggest Energy Lesson We Might Have Learned From Texas Has Nothing To Do With Wind Power

Conversations surrounding power outages in Texas that left four million Texans without the ability to heat their homes during an extreme winter storm quickly devolved into discussions about wind power versus fossil fuels.
The biggest lesson we’ve learned about the future of energy in the United States, however, could have nothing to do with wind turbines — perhaps it is about nuclear energy…

claimed. “This is a grid where the tail is wagging the dog,” Steve Milloy, former Trump EPA Transition Team Member and Founder of JunkScience.com, told the Caller. “This experience should wake politicians up to the fact that political correctness is not a good way to design electricity grids and energy systems,” Milloy added.
