Also, in this show, the electrical grid’s reliability in Texas faltered during a winter storm early last year. Some West Virginia lawmakers blamed the growth of renewable power in Texas. But as Joshua Rhodes, a research associate at the University of Texas at Austin, told Curtis Tate, it was also a failure of fossil fuels. Rhodes made a prediction on what will happen to coal in the next decade.
