Energy Report: Green Wash

Texas is getting back to normal while green energy proponents try to green each solar and wind epic failure. Oh sure, you can say that they were not probably prepared to face an unexpected arctic blast, yet when the going got tough, it was natural gas and coal that kept whatever power that Texas has, up and running. If you look at the fuels that worked and those that did not, it is clear that the use of power from nuclear, coal, and natural gas went up, while wind and solar crashed.

The failure of wind and solar caused the natural gas plants to shut, creating the domino effect that helped leave Texans in the cold. Yes, there was a host of other issues but if we do not acknowledge the fact that wind and solar are the most unreliable sources of energy on the grid, then this country will go down the path of energy weakness. Our economy will suffer. Also, don't believe anyone that tells you this cold blast was because of climate change! Texas has seen this type of cold snap many times before, even well before the industrial revolution. They can try to greenwash this, but we must take a lesson in our rush to green up the energy industry.

The Department of Energy reports that "An arctic air mass has receded after impacting the Central United States, bringing snow, ice, and extremely cold temperatures from the Canadian border as far south as Texas, causing record winter power demand and impacting power generation, natural gas and oil production, and refinery operations. The Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) has returned to normal conditions after balancing generation and load to restore customers who were under controlled power outages across Texas since early Monday. The Southwest Power Pool (SPP) and the Midcontinent Independent System Operator (MISO) also implemented controlled outages on both Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures in Texas are expected to remain moderate throughout the week.

The Biden administration is in a rush to undue U.S. strength in the Middle East by extending the olive branch to Iran to rejoin The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action known commonly as the Iran nuclear deal or Iran deal and could make the peace progress we have seen in the Middle East start to reverse. Israel is more at risk even as traditional foes in recent years have acknowledged their right to exist.
