Still Waiting...

Because of the importance of the issue and because I wanted to give the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) the ability to state its case, I have kept this issue at the top of the blog and have ceased posting other articles. We know (see comments to the posting immediately below) that AWEA can post in less than an hour when they believe it is in their interest to do so.

Mr. Goggin and AWEA: I need a response by 11am Eastern. Otherwise, I am going to assume the facts are as I have stated them and will do the followup post I promised our readers accordingly.

Thank you.

  1. Sorry Mike, but I'm genuinely confused about what you are waiting for. To recap what has happened: Your initial post stated that wind caused the blackouts that occurred Wednesday morning. I posted data showing that wind output was high (3500-4000 MW, as confirmed by ERCOT) during the period when the blackouts happened. You agreed with that data. I also pointed out that numerous people, including ERCOT and the Texas Lt. Gov., have shown that the blackouts happened after 50 fossil-fired power plants totaling 7,000 MW tripped offline. Your initial post was false - end of story. The only thing I can see that we are waiting on is for you to issue a retraction.
