LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Green energy didn’t help Texas

As stated in the Sun’s Friday editorial, the failure of Texas’ energy grid is mostly due to deregulation, which caused facilities not to be protected from an unusual extreme-cold event. But it should not be overlooked that all of the solar and wind energy sources were totally shut down. If Texas had relied totally on green energy production, there would have been no electricity at all.

While governments and industry have been focused on protection from global warming, they better not forget the possibility of global cooling.
