Expensive New England winter is coming

Original Article

New England is approaching what grid officials and utility executives expect to be a very pricey winter for energy consumers and one that risks a shortage of energy during extended periods of extreme cold. It's not an unfamiliar forecast for the region, where cold temperatures and natural gas pipeline constraints have a record of driving supply tightness, and thereby driving prices up, during cold winter months. But this year, those pipeline constraints are overlaid by extremely competitive energy markets globally and fuel commodity prices that are already higher than normal going into winter. That's led to warnings that $1,000 monthly

The same thing happened in the late 70s and guess what happened - the federal government granted energy payments to residents in democrat states. Biden will try to do the same thing. Hopefully a GOP Congress will stop this misuse of taxpayer money.

Impossible! We have rampant global warming, according to the most learned climate scientists of our time, Occasionally-Cognizant, Greta and Algor! The elites will not suffer, as they will fly carbon spewing jets to that horrible red state, Florida, where they can continue to complain against the climate change deniers!

Since the environmental nutjobs have declared carbon emissions as the cause of global warming/climate change, perhaps they could fly their carbon emitting planes several times a day over New England and warm the place up.

Fact check: White House corrects inaccurate

Washington — During a campaign-style Friday speech at a Democratic National Committee event in Washington, President Joe Biden boasted about the three-month decline in gas prices and about the unemployment rate. But he used inaccurate figures on both subjects. (Snip) Facts First: Biden’s claim about average gasoline prices was false, as the White House acknowledged by correcting the official transcript after CNN inquired about the claim on Friday afternoon. In fact, zero states have an average price under $2.99 per gallon, figures from GasBuddy and the American Automobile Association show. As the correction notes, Biden got a key digit wrong:

California is committing to a plan that will make it the first US state to phase out gas-fueled furnaces and water heaters in homes, a move environmentalists are betting will provide a template for other states. The Golden State will ban the sale of all new natural gas-fired space heaters and water heating appliances by 2030, under a proposal unanimously approved by the California Air Resources Board on Thursday. “We’re really hopeful that this is the beginning of a domino effect and other states will follow California’s lead,” said Leah Louis-Prescott, a senior associate at RMI , a non-profit focused

Ebola has spread almost 50 miles through rural communities in Uganda - with cases clustered near a busy road leading from the capital Kampala to the Democratic Republic of Congo, health officials revealed on Thursday. Doctors are scrambling to mount a response to a relatively rare form of the highly contagious deadly hemorrhagic fever, which leaves people vomiting blood and has no approved vaccine. “As of today, we have seven confirmed cases of whom we have one confirmed death,” Lt. Col Dr Kyobe Henry Bbosa, who is currently leading Uganda's Ebola response, told journalists. “But we also have seven probable

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot fired back at the CEO of McDonald’s after he highlighted the difficulty rising crime in the city has caused for his business, telling him he needs to "educate himself" on the matter. "I think what would have been helpful is for the McDonald's CEO to educate himself before he spoke," the Chicago Democrat said during a media availability on Tuesday. Donald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski warned in a speech at the Economic Club of Chicago luncheon last week that it was time to "face facts" and acknowledge that companies have been leaving the city over the past

The good news for President Biden is that his national approval rating is on the rise, including in our recent NBC News poll (where it inched up from 42% in August to 45% this month among registered voters). The bad news for him is that his standing remains in historically perilous territory for the party holding the White House, especially in key battleground states. Three different Georgia polls released this week — via CBS News, Marist and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution — find the state’s Senate race between incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-Ga., and GOP challenger Herschel Walker within the margin

The average price for a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in Los Angeles County jumped 8.5 cents to $5.55 overnight for the 19th consecutive day. That same price also jumped in Orange County 9 cents to $5.52. Ventura County and the Inland Empire also saw its average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gas also went up to $5.54 and $5.42, respectively. Gas prices in Southern California have been on a steady rise after easing up over the summer. Prices in California had reached a record high

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will consider adopting more stringent greenhouse gas emissions rules for heavy trucks after Congress passed new incentives to speed the adoption of zero-emission vehicles, the agency told Reuters.

If you thought parts shortages couldn't get any worse for the auto industry than they did last year, then it's time to hit reset. We've seen multiple car companies, including international giants like Honda and Toyota, struggle to deliver vehicles simply because they can't source the components they need. The same is true with Ford, which announced this week that up to 45,000 vehicles will be held in its inventory this quarter until they receive essential parts—mainly chips. The Blue Oval has made use of Kentucky Speedway's many lots to store its many trucks until they can be sent

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) has a 4-point lead over Democratic challenger Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, according to a new Emerson College poll released on Tuesday. Forty-eight percent of very likely voters said they support the sitting senator, while 44 percent said they will vote for Barnes, according to the poll. After winning the Democratic primary last month, Barnes briefly polled ahead of Johnson. However, Johnson has since closed the gap, and recent polling — including a Spectrum News-Siena College poll also released on Tuesday — showed the candidates within 1 percentage point of each other. Regardless of who they plan to support

The pair kissed one another on the lips in front of an enthusiastic crowd and held hands before taking to the microphone to introduce the 75-year-old rocker to the stage. Jill, 71, donned a daring blue sequined dress for the occasion, which hugged her enviable figure. The Rocketman played on an elaborate stage set up specifically for him and his team.

I don’t generally talk about Jill Biden’s clothes, but she wore something during some recent photos with her husband and world leaders that had a lot of people talking.

This may be the worst outfit yet, although there’s a lot of competition.(Tweet) People had thoughts. Some compared it to a Hefty bag, some to something Alice Cooper might wear.

Ardern’s authoritarian impulses were on display in her call for tighter regulations on Internet speech, although she insisted she values free speech and merely wishes to cleanse “disinformation” from international discourse. Ardern portrayed the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, which New Zealand addressed with some of the heaviest lockdowns to be found outside of communist China

Is Joe Biden President? That’s the question to ask after staffers walked back Biden’s latest remarks on Taiwan. During his rather uneven “60 Minutes” interview with Scott Pelley last weekend, Biden firmly and clearly announced that the United States would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion. This was a dramatic statement, and a substantial shift from America’s traditional policy of “strategic ambiguity” on Taiwan, in which our response to Chinese saber-rattling over the island nation was essentially “fool around and find out.” Biden was not at all ambiguous: If China went to war with Taiwan, it would be war with the United States and its allies. That departure made some sense.

Critics and historians say such a memorial would upend the fourth president’s legacy and become the center of attention at his own home.(Snip)“We want to make this a national monument to the ‘Invisible Founders,'” Walker said—slaves who, he believes, deserve equal credit for the Constitution and the Bill of Rights because their labor financed the private lives of Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and many of the nation’s early leaders.
