Reacting to the governor of Texas Greg Abbott that the freezing of wind turbines caused the massive power outage, the billionaire said that this statement is incorrect since the United States is not sufficiently dependent on renewable energy sources.
These are natural gas power plants that were not weather-resistant. They could be. It costs money, and a compromise was made, but it didn’t work, and, tragically, it led to the loss of life,”Gates said in an interview with CNN
In the past week, the United States has literally been shackled by an abnormal cold; heavy snowfalls overshadow the situation. Earlier it was reported that about 300 thousand residents of Texas lost their electricity due to bad weather. Due to the established frosts in the country, more than 30 people were killed.
