Wind turbines work really well in Antarctica, but they are designed to keep going in the cold....
I suspect, Texas being the oil state it is, that there is an attempt to score some political points and to hide rather than address the very real problems of under-investment and corner cutting.
We are not immune to the underinvestment issue it must be said, our own infrastructure is remarkably aged in parts, but there is a degree of robustness, driven by national standards and some regulation that requires supplies to be re-routable, perhaps oddly in part due to a desire for robustness against IRA attacks and the like, which were happening at the time a lot of the plans and guidelines were drafted.
This is of no help to cold Texans of course, but maybe they should be looking for more than one cause.
