Hotels packed, electricity out, people sleeping in cars—this is not Guatemala—this is Texas. The Lone Star State continues to struggle after experiencing its worst snow storms in decades.
More than four million people across the state have endured rolling blackouts due to lack of energy. This has been due in part to frozen wind turbines in West Texas. The situation has exposed the dangers of dumping fossil fuels for renewable energy like wind and solar, exposing Americans to frightening winter conditions.
Sure, Americans want to keep the planet clean, but not when they could wake up without electricity during a winter storm. Green activists and energy providers will have to answer some tough questions before expanding plans in Texas and beyond after placing citizens at risk.
Thankfully, Texas weather is expected to soon change and bring warmer temperatures across the state. However, the clean energy providers responsible for blackouts will continue to face a cold shoulder from Texans unless they can offer increased protections for Americans while working to safeguard the planet.
