Texas Blackout – Time for Advanced Root Cause Analysis?

Texas Grid Was 4 Minutes and 37 Seconds From a Statewide Blackout

Texas experienced rolling blackouts and full blackouts in some areas. How many died? At least 16 froze to death in Harris County according to an article I read.

Thus, the multiple fatalities could have been worse. How much worse? Maybe dozens or even hundreds. This good ole boy tries to explain it…

He even mentions root causes!
