I was going to cite the numerous instances of Lefticrats salivating at the mere mention of sky-high energy costs for the middle class as well as the working poor, but I’m not going to waste my time and yours.
Between the Left bragging of wanting to make coal miners unemployed, or average Americans paying for gasoline on par with what Europeans pay, or even joyously anticipating the day when the people of the United States are forced to give up fossil fuels for windmills, sunshine and unicorn farts… well, we all know that the recent history of the Jackass Party has examples a-plenty.
But if $7.00 a gallon gas or empty grocery store shelves isn’t enough to convince one that the Democrats are the Party of America Last, perhaps rolling backouts in the middle of August will get the attention of even the most ardent of Biden supporters.
As reported by the Wall Street Journal (emphasis mine);
Summer is around the corner, and we suggest you prepare by buying an emergency generator, if you can find one in stock. Last week the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) warned that two-thirds of the U.S. could experience blackouts this summer. Welcome to the “green energy transition.”
We’ve been warning for years that climate policies would make the grid more vulnerable to vacillations in supply and demand. And here we are. Some of the mainstream press are belatedly catching on that blackouts are coming, but they still don’t grasp the real problem: The forced transition to green energy is distorting energy markets and destabilizing the grid.
