For the past week, the state of Texas has been enduring some of the state's coldest weather in living memory. It has resulted in the majority of the state's power grid failing, leaving Texans without power, heating, and in many cases, fresh water.

Pundits and commentators have taken to criticizing renewable energy generation, attacking the Green New Deal and more ()

So we decided it was time to tackle the topic head on - explaining why many Texan politicians are wrong when they blame wind turbines and the Green New Deal - and how electric cars and renewable energy could save the day in the future.
