You have been sold a bill of goods pertaining to ‘alternative’ energy — which follows the laws of physics and meteorology (i.e., wind/solar are least available when needed the most) in spite of BigClimate wants you to believe.
They also destabilize the electric grid. So, when temperatures are highest in summer and coldest in winter, the needed electricity is not available. The rest of the nation should stop before we find ourselves in California’s predicament.

You’ve read these words countless times here in the eleven-year history of this blog: Natural gas and nuclear — especially, next-gen nuclear — are the solutions to the genuine problem of global warming. Wind and solar are expensive and unreliable.
