Jon Sanders writes about this latest trend from governments:
It already seems as if people are being conditioned to expect talk of rolling blackouts whenever the weather outside seems frightful.
To be very clear: rolling blackouts are not now, nor have they been, normal in the US. Therefore, having to expect rolling blackouts going forward would be abnormal. Nevertheless, as utility providers and power grid monitors have recently warned, the more grids are saddled with intermittent, unreliable wind and solar facilities, the more unreliable they are becoming. They’re more prone to capacity shortfalls and blackouts.
And this, my friends, is utter bullshit.
I don’t want to live under the constant threat of “rolling blackouts”, “load shedding” or any of the other cutesy little euphemisms these bastards come up with to disguise their incompetence.
I expect — no, I demand — to have uninterrupted electricity, 24/7/365, no matter the weather conditions or for any other reason.
If this means that power generation is achieved through burning coal, gas, oil or hippies, I don’t care.
Despite what the Greens and other eco-freaks think, electricity is not an indulgence or a luxury; it is as important to our civilization as food or water.
And I demand that our elected governments come to terms with that reality, and make the decisions that ensure it — or else be replaced by voters.
Enough of this climate change nonsense, its lies and its fantasies.
