Texas is an absolute disaster right now.
After being rocked by record low temperatures and snow, the state is struggling just to keep the lights on.
Literally…they can’t keep their lights on.
Just take a look at this video where Tucker Carlson is interviewing Rick Perry, who is completely frozen with a loading screen.
Watch the video:
And speaking of “frozen”…
Texas is a state that rely’s heavily on “renewable energy” sources like wind turbines, which are currently frozen solid due to extreme weather conditions and are causing power outages all over the state.
Ice storms knocked out nearly half the wind-power generating capacity of Texas on Sunday as a massive deep freeze across the state locked up wind turbine generators, creating an electricity generation crisis.
Wind generation ranks as the second-largest source of energy in Texas, accounting for 23% of state power supplies last year, behind natural gas, which represented 45%, according to Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) figures.
ERCOT reports today the spot price for electricity in Texas is currently a stunning $9000 per MegaWatt-hour. Even in the high demand summer months, $100 per MW-hr would be high.
It is sad and ironic that in a state known for its huge petroleum and natural gas resources, the lack of reliability of wind power has brought the state to its knees in a time of crisis, not unlike that which California experienced in 2020 during record heat where wind and solar power could not keep up with demand and was near collapse.
The folly of chasing renewable energy as a means of mitigating “climate change” is making itself abundantly clear today in Texas. When will politicians wake up and realize that renewable energy almost always equates to unreliable energy?
This is just a mess.
But this is the future of energy that Biden and other Dems want for our country.
