As Texas winter storm shows, hurling public money at renewable energy is pure folly – by Rex Murphy (National Post – February 18, 2021)

The Wall Street Journal editorialized that “Texas’s overreliance on
wind power left the grid more vulnerable to bad weather. Half of
the wind turbines froze last week, causing wind’s share of electricity
