Go Green and Freeze, Fools!!

 Gee.  We mentioned the Green Weenie only a few days ago.

Nearly half of Texas' installed wind power generation capacity has been offline because of frozen wind turbines in West Texas, according to Texas grid operators. 

Wind farms across the state generate up to a combined 25,100 megawatts of energy. But unusually moist winter conditions in West Texas brought on by the weekend's freezing rain and historically low temperatures have iced many of those wind turbines to a halt....

Today's winner/loser of the Green Weenie award?  Texas!

The windmills are also freezing up.
