“Crétins utiles.” Theses are the people Lenin said would sell the Communists the rope the Communists would use to hang them.

Both China and Russia are using these folks’ “wokeness” to weaken us economically. China has the lithium and Russia the natural gas. Both burn coal on a huge scale compared to the U.S.

When Taiwan falls and the Russian pipeline is fully functional due to us caving on the Ukrainian threat the noose will be dropped on our necks.

A Tesla S battery only is warranted for 100K miles or 8yrs and then you are paying 23K for it to be replaced before labor.

Spurinna makes an excellent point. Once we cede control over our food supply it's game over.

Also, I have read that the population of the USA is shrinking. If that is so, isn't that the best remedy for "pollution" reduction (yeah, I use the old school vernacular).
Why do we need so much new housing if in fact there are less people?

Just another sinner

This article reminded me of this site. Substitute 7.3 earthquake for hurricane and imagine this: https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2022/01/foreseeable_electric_car_catastrophes_.html

I just read that a new generator will be installed at our new Community Center.

What will this generator run on, since our city council has BANNED natural gas in all new construction?


The WSJ has a slice of reality for today about new, big solar and wind installations to power the New Green World and how far behind the interconnections (transmission lines) are sinking:

Even as wind and solar has proliferated, the build-out of transmission lines crucial to their growth hasn’t caught up. The number of miles of newly built high-voltage transmission lines has declined from an annual average of 2,000 miles from 2012 to 2016 to an annual average of 700 miles between 2017 and 2021, according to the U.S. Energy Department. Less than a quarter of projects that sought interconnection to the grid from 2000 to 2016 have been built, and the share of those making it to the finish line has declined since 2013, according to the Energy Department.

For years, the declining cost of inputs and capital helped the solar and wind industries reach new heights. Those are both areas that money and policy—especially tax credits—were able to rally behind and provide the means to tackle. Interconnection and transmission line constraints have always been crucial, but the red tape around permits and jurisdiction just isn’t as glamorous a target or one as easily resolved by throwing resources at it.
