Robert Murphy: Texas Cold Snap – A Perfect Storm

Broadcast Running Time: 25:07

Two months ago today, Texas experienced a rare winter blast resulting in a widespread blackout.  Debate has since raged over what source of energy was to blame.  Robert Murphy (independent.org), Research Fellow at the Independent Institute, joins us today, to clear up the debate, having spent time looking at the data.  He discusses the sometimes competing narratives about wind energy in Texas, whether natural gas stepped up during the crisis, and why Texas is on its own grid.  He and John also zoom out and look at the broader energy picture in the U.S., including the role renewables play and whether nuclear is a valid option.
