    It's both our leader's fault and global warming's fault, meaning all mankind's fault. Anyone who looks at it intelligently knows that something like this can take years to fuck up and unfuck. It's not one of my areas of expertise so I use NASA, the same people putting us on the Moon, back on the Moon and throughout the solar system.

    OTOH, I don't listen to insane people afraid of dying on the Internet...except to study them.

    Direct observations made on and above Earth’s surface show the planet’s climate is significantly changing. Human activities are the primary driver of those changes.

    No. I have a generator and solar panels. Still have a wiring issue, but working on it.

    Beyond my area of expertise. The idea is interesting, but young. It was always a gamble.

    I'm more boring; the dollar cost average guy. Work hard in a job you love with a sound savings plan and the ability to resist fashion, commercials or people pushing me to "keep up with the Jones".

    I'm not rich, but I'm protected for life if the financial system holds together (a good bet IMHO) and a Plan B which involves a lot of revenge. LOL

    The issue is worldwide, but it's coming to Texas.

    anyone else notice that blackouts seldom happened until we started making power companies incorporate solar and wind and not use cheap, reliable coal to make power ?

    Our power system has needed major investment for a lot of years, it is just one more thing that never got done....but yes, now it it being weakened even more with intermittent energy production.

    If I were younger I would get a tied in gas generator system for my oasis, so far our elites have been able to keep the gas on, though I suspect that might be going away too. Gas is certainly getting very expensive very rapidly thanks to the failed elites.

    I am reminded of Paglia and Peterson agreeing that we have been blessed so far in having largely stupid terrorists. If somebody wants to hurt us right now hitting our energy supply would ramp up the terror rapidly.

    Just think about what a few black market Javelans from Ukraine could do to us.

    Almost certainly will do to us eventually.

    two states with the biggest investment in wind energy are Iowa and Wyoming......I'm not aware of blackouts in either.....

    what puzzles me is California, which has brown outs with a declining population base.......perhaps illegals use more electricity than legals because that seems to be the only demographic still growing in CA.......

    Yes because summers weren't hot before the industrial revolution. If we have blackouts it will be the result of Bidens incompetent and failed energy policies.

    ....because all the best fucking morons believe these problems began January 20th, 2021?

    Net electrical output USA:
    https://www.statista.com/statistics/...et-generation/
    The United States generated 4,116 terawatt hours of electricity in 2021, the third-largest figure recorded in the indicated period. In comparison to the previous year, power generation increased by roughly three percent. There had been a notable decrease in power production in 2020, brought about by the drop in commercial and industrial electricity demand due to the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown measures.
