In his post on Not Alot of People Know That, Paul Homewood shows how the failure of Green energy resulted in catastrophic blackouts in Texas, during the winter storm last week. It was not the failure in natural gas energy as the main stream media is peddling. Homewood did something a bit unusual, he actually looked at the data.
When you think of Texas, you think of a state full of oil and natural gas, so why are Texans experiencing energy blackouts in the midst of the coldest weather they had seen in decades. The answer: thinking green. Nearly half of Texas’ windmills that provide a significant percentage of the state’s electrical power froze up. Green energy didn’t cause the freeze of course, that was caused by man-made Global Warming (sarcasm). But this green energy failure is causing people to suffer the consequences of the freeze. The Houston Chronicle explains: Natural gas shortages and frozen wind turbines were already curtailing power output when the Arctic blast began knocking generators offline early Monday morning. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, or ERCOT, which is responsible for scheduling power and ensuring the reliability of the electrical network, declared a statewide power generation shortfall emergency and asked electricity delivery companies to reduce load through controlled outages. More than 4 million customers were without power in Texas, including some 1.2 million in the Houston area, the worst power …
Remember that Paris Accord that the environmental extremists are demanding that the west follow in order to save the planet from Climate Change. Well, surprise, surprise, apparently China got a free ride.
So, how much is a slightly used solar farm worth these days? Well first we need to find out how much it actually cost?
The Democrat controlled state of California has totally embraced unreliable green energy such as windmills and solar panels that only work when the wind is blowing and the sun is shining. And in the process California scrapped reliable gas and nuclear energy.
California is the home of green energy, windmills and solar power. In the midst of a heat wave that is expected to last until Wednesday, the state is telling people and businesses to brace for rolling power black outs.
