"Extreme winter storms wreaked havoc across the United States over the weekend, causing
widespread power outages in Texas. As many people are wondering why the largest energy-producing state in the country is facing widespread power failures amid below-freezing temperatures, Fox News’ answer is to blame the state’s reliance on wind energy. But while renewable energy sources such as wind are a familiar and convenient scapegoat for Fox — allowing the network to feed fears about clean energy and the Green New Deal that it has long nurtured — this narrative is flat wrong."
