Must-Read, While Your Computer Still Has Power! Frank Lasee, president of Truth in Energy and Climate, wrote this article called “The Day the Electricity Died.”

He explains why we’re heading into a summer of potentially deadly power outages, and why it’s the fault of the “progressive” green energy lobby. His piece is filled with something that promoters of green energy prefer to ignore: hard facts of physics. Like, that energy sources such as solar or wind power only generate power when the sun shines or the wind blows, and we don’t have batteries to store it in. They produce little to no energy 70% of the time. Meanwhile, our power needs go on 24/7, rain or shine. Replacing 1,000 megawatts of coal power would require 5,000 megawatts of solar, which means 13 million solar panels occupying nearly 40 square miles. By the way, about 80% of solar panels are made in communist China, where there is slave labor and no environmental protection laws.

We’re blighting the landscape and killing bats and birds by adding 3,000 wind turbines a year, which (when they’re working) can replace only 2.5 coal-fired power plants, and green activists want to shut down far more plants than that. A power shortage is as predictable as gas prices under Biden's policy of shutting down oil and gas production. China, India and other nations are building hundreds of coal plants while we’re shutting ours down and not replacing them with reliable sources like nuclear. This will inevitably lead to devastating power shortages that will endanger our lives, our economy and our national security.

There’s more at the link. It’s not a fun read, but it will equip you to answer people who claim you want to destroy the planet if you don’t agree to commit national suicide by generating energy from nothing but sunshine, breezes and the flapping of pigs’ wings.
