California’s wild hourly swings in mandated renewable power generation have wrecked the economics of generating reliable electricity in other Western states.
ERCOT, the grid operator that left millions without power during record-low temperatures in February, is demanding customers reduce their electricity use.
Correcting the record is important since assigning the wrong reasons for Texas’s electric blackouts will lead to the wrong solutions.
Thanks to experience with numerous hurricanes, we were prepared for the Texas power outage and no one slept in the cold at our house. When you are prepared, three days is not that bad.
Founder and Executive Director of Power The Future Daniel Turner joins Chris Bedford to discuss how failures in the government-induced wind sector of the Texas energy grid contributed to the state’s unfurling power crisis.
Citing climate change for Texas’s current weather or casting the Green New Deal as a realistic response to such weather is completely unscientific and unhelpful.
The blackouts, which have left as many as 4 million Texans trapped in the cold, show the numerous chilling consequences of putting too many eggs in the renewable basket.
What is this nuclear winter? Under the morning twilight sky, fully concealed faces are moving past Black Lives Matter logos and raised fists painted by children. It’s a total triumph of the political over the personal.
Assuming lawmakers didn’t intend to promote policies that resulted in burned towns, scores of deaths, and widespread power outages, how did they arrive at this point?
California’s energy travails come at an embarrassing time for the Democratic national presidential ticket of former Vice President Joe Biden and California Sen. Kamala Harris.
Thanks to Democrats, California’s large and heavily regulated public utilities prioritize wind and solar power, leaving little for powerline maintenance and upgrades.
Before planned blackouts are through in two or three days, as many as 3 million Californians may go without power.
