Power Outage In 13 States

 A hundred year storm with freezing weather that has hit 13 states in the middle of the country and especially Texas has resulted in chaos and rolling black outs.   People are searching for fire wood to heat their homes because black outs are causing temperatures to drop to dangerous levels.  Texas that is sitting on abundant sources of natural gas has installed wind farms in the last several years.  Unfortunately, the wind turbines, probably made in China are frozen stuck in many areas so they are not producing energy.  The end result is a power grid that cannot supply enough electricity to various states to keep the power on.  

This should be a lesson learned first all.  First, global warming is no longer called that because we do have these instances of freezing weather.  So now the climate extremists call it "climate change" to cover all their bases in case things start to get really cold rather than really hot.  Second, it is clear that solar and wind power cannot be relied on to power a modern economy.   When the sun don't shine and the wind don't blow, there is no power.  And, in this case, even though the wind is blowing with extreme wind chill, the wind turbines are frozen and not moving.  

I suspect the state of Texas, as well as other states run by Republicans will respond accordingly to build more natural gas powered electric plants to make sure this sort of thing never happens again.  Don't expect it to happen in blue states run by National Socialists.  California, the Green New Deal State has been experiencing rolling back outs for months, yet Governor Gruesome has done nothing to stop it.  

The fact is, we need an all of the above energy strategy that includes nuclear, oil and natural gas, clean coal and renewables.   We need to make all energy sources safer, cleaner and cheaper to maintain our standard of living.  The Green New Deal will drive up energy prices, kill millions of jobs and result in a lower standard of living for all Americans.  This is a road to rolling black outs.  All we have to do is look to California to see the story.  And, now with this climate emergency, we also see the end result in other states.
