Charged up over article

Editor, OBSERVER:

The true situation in Texas with the outage was caused by infrastructure shortcomings and insufficient planning for extreme weather and not by renewable energy failures.

It was readily apparent that the front-page story belonged in the Opinion section — and not presented as factual news.

While a few turbines did freeze up, due to lack of winterization, most wind capacity remained online. The greatest drop off in energy generation occurred due to thermal generators — natural gas, coal, and nuclear — going offline. These facts are readily available from multiple news sources and are not just my opinion.

Whether you are in favor of wind or other renewable energy sources or not, and you obviously are not, I would appreciate opinions and biases where they belong — and not in the news section of the paper.
