Californian Blackout Fury: “It’s Not Just the Heat, It’s Also the Anti-Nuclear Power Stupidity”

California’s self-inflicted renewable energy debacle has attracted global attention. Policymakers have led with their chins by promoting chaotically intermittent wind and solar, all the while trashing ever-reliable nuclear power – with perfectly predictable results.

Sweeping Blackouts Mean California’s ‘Green’ Energy Fantasy Just Got Real

California’s sweeping blackouts are a fair indication of what happens when sound engineering gets trumped by woolly-headed ideology.

Code Black: Mass Blackouts Just Beginning of California’s Renewable Energy Debacle

California’s a place renowned for its woolly-headed thinking, not least its suicidal obsession with chaotically intermittent wind and solar. A couple weeks back, during a blistering Californian Summer, a spike in electricity demand (think millions of air conditioners running at full tilt) combined with calm weather, desert cloud cover and, later, sunset to leave millions […]

Wrecking Ball: Democrat’s Deluded Wind & Solar Plan Would Destroy US Economy Overnight

  Democrats are determined to deliver California’s renewable energy debacle to all and sundry.

Democrats Would Take California’s Blackout Chaos Nationwide With New ‘Green’ Deal

An obsession with intermittent wind and solar is delivering rolling Summer blackouts to Californians, once again.

System Down: California’s All Wind & Solar Dream Turns to Deadly Nightmare

In a ‘don’t say we told you so moment’, wind and solar obsessed California has just suffered another run of weather induced mass blackouts.
