What caused the power outages in New Zealand?

It is still winter in New Zealand, and last night there was a major power outage in the country, leaving tens of thousands of homes without power. Apparently, they use electricity to heat their homes, and last night was one of the coldest days of the year. And one of the major electrical providers is warning that more outages may be on the way, stating that, ‘that the emergency was far from over.’ Apparently, power supplies were running tight. So what could be the cause of these electrify shortfalls? Could it be the result of a woke Prime Minister, consumed by ideology and a lack of common sense, who has the country getting 84% of its power from expensive and unreliable green energy that only works when the wind is blowing and the sun is shining? Of course, the government is also pushing electric vehicles, and the country’s energy minister was quick to point out that these green vehicles, that are often recharged overnight, were not the cause of the shortfall.

Did green energy cause the Texas freeze?

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 …
