The Day the Electricity Died

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 5/28/2022 6:56:04 AM

Imagine one of your kids freezing to death in your home. Eleven-year-old Cristian Pineda's mother found her son dead during the Texas blackout in February 2021. Or you have a power outage for three days, losing a couple of hundred dollars worth of food because your refrigerator didn’t work, as Michelle Jones did last summer. The food she had just bought to feed herself, her daughter, and her granddaughter spoiled without electricity. This is likely to become all too common in the future. Why? My years as a Wisconsin state senator and in Gov. Scott Walker’s administration gave me some insights. My senate district included a coal plant,

It's going to be worse than this Article predicts. China is building coal fueled power plants because their scientists know that the Green New Deal policies are dangerous nonsense. All experts in the field of generation of electricity know full well that the Green New Deal policies are going to cause thousands of deaths to humans and animals (lack of heat, cooling and food), cause tremendous damage to our economy (inflation and reductions in manufacturing), and the recovery time will take years (even if we start today).

For all the time I have been in Mexico with my wife, who has family and relatives in the central regions, I have not seen a single windmill nor a solar farm. Why does the U.S. have to have more greenie nut jobs than most of the rest of the world?

To fulfill the green dream, we must also be willing to sacrifice enough land to equal the states of California and Texas. That’s the amount of area it will take for solar panels and wind farms to generato all of our electricity needs. And as the author says, we will also need an unimaginable amount of batteries that don’t even exist yet. And even if we are willing to pay this price our worldwide friends and enemies will continue merrily along their way with Coal generation.

It’s not just electricity. With oil and natural gas prices soaring higher by the day, people whose homes rely on those products for heat and cooking are going to suffer too. And it’s all being done with intention and malice. As I’ve posted many times over the last 20 plus years on this site, I spent three of the worst winters on record in Ceausescu’s Romania. That country is oil rich and had the ability to supply its people with all of the oil and gas that it needed. But the dictator decided to sell almost all of it to the west for hard currency, at the expense of his own people. The waited in gas lines for days with family members taking turns so as not to lose their place, just to get a few liters for their cars. We even saw one of these gas lines out in the countryside and off in the distance behind the line were oil fields pumping away. The contrast was astounding and tragic. Thousands of the very young and very old froze to death in their homes. We were there as US diplomats and we had no heat, no hot water and no gas in our stove. The temperature inside our refrigerator was warmer than that in our apartment. Some of our co-workers at the embassy had to break up the ice in their toilets every morning. And we thought that it could never happen in America. Thirty-eight years later and here we are. As to solar panels - an anecdote. In 2018 I was in Australia on business and took some vacation time during which I visited Ayers Rock in the center of the country, which is in a vast desert. They have cloudless skies over 300 days each year and the resort area there has fields and fields of solar panels. I asked how much of their power was provided by those panels and was told 15%. That tells you all you need to know about depending on solar for your energy. The rest of their energy was provided by generators run on gas which was brought in on tanker trucks.

The Inconvenient Truth is that if the United States reduced carbon emissions to zero by 2030, China will have increased carbon emissions to meet or exceed the carbon emissions the United States has eliminated. The Paris agreement exempts not just China, but India and several other nations from doing anything to reduce emission until that time. It has been reported that China brings a new coal fire electrical plant on line nearly every week! The effort by Progressives to force transition has already created record inflation with more suffering and misery in the future.

Be prepared. Last month I bout a dual fuel electric generator that runs on gasoline or propane. I spent$800+ on a 3500 watt unit at Home Depot, as well as an extra propane tank and extra 100' extension chords. I am all set so when the power goes off I can plug in my refrigerator, computer, Direct TV satellite system and TV set. So quit cryin and start buyin. Be a good Boy Scout and be prepared.

The envirocrazies are convinced that CO2 is harmful, disragarding massive evidence to the contrary, and that it is a helpful for plant growth. Given the massive, well funded, intentional disinformation campaign that has been ongoing for decades, it is prudent to have alternatives in place to deal with the potential (and increasingly likely) for extended power outages, something that was absolutely unheard of a few decades ago in most places. They are "devolving" the country - removing capabilities that are critical, life-saving infrastructure, and "replacing" it with unreliable, ultra expensive, foolish "solutions". Anyone that doesn't have at least a modest generator and fuel for it stored is a real pollyanna, and is ignoring the warning signs. Also, an alternative way to heat your home in severe weather should be on everyone's plan. A fairly easy one is a tank top propane burner system, and at least one or two of the 10 gallon propane tanks. The tanks are about $110 ,the heater unit is perhaps $75 or sometimes less. These can provide heat to a couple of rooms for several days or more. I have had one in the garage since the 2000 computer scare. I have tested it a couple of times, and actually used it once when the propane company failed to fill my main tank and the furnace went out in 8F weather, and they didn't fill it, regardless of multiple calls, for two days. Be Prepared. Not just for Boy Scouts any more.

Solar and wind generation need reliable backup when the wind doesn’t blow, when storms hit and when the sun doesn’t shine. That backup power has been marginalized by emphasis on green energy. Coal and nuclear generation are the only reliable forms of generation and they are forbidden.

#18 has good ideas for heat. I would add that you probably need to keep a little more extra propane on hand. I am right next door from a propane supplier, and a mile from another. Last year during the big freeze people were coming for 50 or 60 miles around, I kid you not, to try to get small tanks refilled. The suppliers were not able to fill small tanks or bigger tanks at residences because the electricity was out and they couldn't pump the propane. Add that to ice on roads and it was four days before they could do anything, week or longer in parts of this rural county.

Here is the basic stupidity: We have been living under the apprehension that CONSERVATION would offset these closed plants. Switch to more efficient appliances and replace your bulbs with'll save money and we won't need the additional power, thus cutting pollution, etc. Then the Green crowd decided "fossil fuels" needed replacement as transportation fuels. EVs were the obvious answer. No one considered that the public had "conserved" itself into lesser generation, even with all the wind, solar and other alternatives online. So now we add EVs to the draw, along with air conditioning and everything else. And we're at a deficit. The first thing to be cutback in a nevessary "brownout" should be EV charging. Will the politicians take action against these sponges? No, they prefer to cycle my electricity so these people can drive. Imagine that...

Note that all these issues have been well known for many years. Nor have the Greens shown ANY interest in wrestling with the problems ahead of time. They won't even admit the problems exist and some are that insurmountable because they know it would stymie their agenda. Instead, they sell the public pabulum and wishful thinking and claim success when laws are passed and a couple of wind or solar plants are built. The problem is, these plants are HEAVILY subsidized and will not scale economically OR practically. It would be IMPOSSIBLE to build enough batteries to store sufficient power for a electrical system powered by solar and wind. The Greens are putting the country on a path to disaster that will make 10+% inflation seem like a joy by comparison.

Re #22m and remember, those lithium batteries will just spontaneously burst into flame. And they don't handle any kind of mechanical shock well either. Watch "BattleBots" on the TV. These fighting robots have weight limits, so everyone uses lithium batteries. These bots regularly burst into flame and burn like they had a handful of RR flares inside. I'd bet that 1/3 rd all the fights wind up with one bot in flaming destruction. So, want to have the power on at night....and solar power.....OK, hundreds of acres of highly combustible, and extremely expensive lithium batteries. Start one on fire....better be careful not to get them too close together, because one burning will spit out flames and flaming debris which can light the nearest other batteries off, too.

I haven’t written much about the latest round of gun control hysteria, mostly because I have said everything I have to say on that topic many times over the years. The liberal solutions to mass shooting incidents, which are very rare, are every bit as silly and ineffective as their solutions to crime in general, which is ubiquitous and therefore vastly more important. Defunding the police makes about as much sense as banning some arbitrarily selected category of firearm. Neither measure will do anything to stem the tide of crime and violence that has swept over us. The National Rifle Association has a great deal more expertise

The first red flag alerting us to this feckless policy appeared during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

President Carter huddled for 10 days at Camp David, meeting with a cross-section of America. In his famous speech, Carter said America was facing a “crisis of confidence.” People felt that he was managing, not leading the government and that the government was largely ineffective. When you look at the Biden administration, the parallels are eerily similar.
