TEXAS ELECTRIC GRID: A Corporate Enterprise Collapses

Wind power in Texas is privately held. It has absolutely nothing to do with a governor or senator.   The largest farm, Los Vientos, is owned by Duke Energy. The second largest is Roscoe Wind Farm which covers 100,000 acres and is owned by RWE a German company with revenues over $14 billion. It was initially installed in 2008.   Turbines have a typical lifespan of about 18-20 years.   The third largest producer is NextEra Energy, Inc, a major donor to Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential election.

These private companies lease the land from ranchers and farmers and pay a royalty on their energy production revenues.   Local energy utilities then purchase the power for resale on the grid to customers. Customers have the right to ‘choose’ among a number of alternate utility companies.

But apparently blame has been reduced to red vs blue, republican vs democrat, when in fact the finger pointing is more relevant toward corporate governance. The entire solar/wind phenomena was instituted by corporate agendas for-profit!

Of course, no ginormous mega freeze is allowed to go unchartered without the New York Times spewing blame at global warming.   In an article today, their very scientific knowledge comes from a ‘reporter who focuses on climate’.   In a Question/Answer commentary, John Schwartz, provides his scientific knowledge of how and why polar freezes are caused by warming. Of course, his bio reveals that he has a blast writing humor, technology, space travel as well as science despite absolutely no education background that would qualify him as an expert in anything. By degree, he is a lawyer.

Utility companies are NOT responsible for wind and solar failure either.

CenterPoint Energy:   “There is not enough electricity from third party generators.

Oncor Electric:  Reporting damaged infrastructure due to extreme weather.   “Along with solar and wind, natural gas-fueled micro-turbines, diesel-fueled engines, batteries, and landfill gas are common components of DG”.

Of course, electric cars put an added strain on the grids, and that market may find itself in a flux as the current La Nina’s typical weather pattern lasts anywhere from 2 months to seven years. This estimate of between 2 and 84 months reveals the insanity of climatologists attempting to ‘predict’ anything.   And the level of fraud in claiming global warming is unaccountably wholly criminal. The NOAA acknowledges that future predictions of weather are unreliable and often involve a lot of ‘guesswork’.

WHY wasn’t Texas put on notice weeks before the event?

La Nina is considered the cold phase of weather affecting southern regions of the Pacific.

October 2020, climatologists warned of a severe ENSO phase of La Nina which bends the polar jet stream south. But other factors come into play including volcanic activity which tends to create a deflection of sunlight.   But monitoring these phenomena didn’t even begin until the 1950’s – therefore providing a ‘prediction’ is based on a relatively short span of conditions.

There are 45 volcanoes across the globe with continuous eruptions.   There are currently 23 ongoing volcanic eruptions in: Italy, Guatemala, Russia, US, Indonesia, Japan, Chile, Grenadines, and Papua New Guinea.

Multiple factors contribute to weather anomalies.   But what this Texas outage reveals is that our grids are tenuous and solar and wind are NOT going to replace fossil fuel generation anytime in the near future.   Electric cars are NOT viable unless the grids are amped up significantly.   And further ‘cooling’ of the sun as per the Bill Gates stupidity is on par with a serious terrorist threat.

And fyi:   Synthetic meat is made from dead cows cells.   Where will they get cows in order to cultivate those cells?   What is the nutrient value of synthetic GMO meat?   Can a person’s system process those GMO chemicals? NONE of these questions have been answered at all.

Once again the mental IQ acuity of Bill Gates is more and more questionable and less and less reliable.   I’ve lowered my estimate from 100 to 90.

Biden’s Climate Change EO’s – Green Energy Another WWII Revenue Gouge!

Biden has announced his first 10 Executive Orders once he is sitting in the White House.   They all revolve to some degree around Climate Change policies, although most are vague with wording that really is meaningless:   ensure, double down on, reduce, require and protect.   None actually present a definitive date, time, percentage, and the proverbial – where will the money come from determinations.   As such they seem more to placate the Greenies, than to actually administer a plan of action, although he pledges to appropriate $2 trillion for these costs.

Electric cars have definitely been making the rounds with the new and improved Boris Johnson proclaiming a green transformation for the UK by 2030.   No one really objects to reducing emissions, we just don’t like when mandates that we can’t afford empty our purses and wallets.  But what is Bojo really touting?

For example, a Sunday drive would have to be pre-planned to make sure your vehicle is charged which can take up to 12 hours.   No more, “Honey let’s go up to the mountains, what do you think…”   spur of the moment drives.   Intrastate travel will slow to a crawl as motorists are forced to stop every 200 miles for 8 hours of charging! That 13 hour drive from Denver to Phoenix will now take 36 hours.   And your vacation choice will be altered due to drive time.

But more importantly how can cities sustain the additional load on electrical grids?   California and New York typically have blackouts due to over use.   Imagine adding 15+ million additional vehicles to that grid?  Because California boasts the most vehicles in the nation.

Generally, blackouts are triggered during the summer months due to heightened use of air conditioners. But summer is also the time of heightened travel, summer vacations, road trips, weekend getaways, etc…

The ten largest utility companies in the US service 9 states including California and New York.   ALL are investor owned.   Do you really think those investors won’t hike rates to cover the increased usage for electric cars? Think again.

California has 24 separate utility companies including Pacific Gas and Electric which ranks in the top 10 by Revenue.   And it STILL had rolling blackouts this past summer.   Pacific Gas is also embroiled in lawsuits given the grid explodes every year causing massive wildfires!    In 2017 alone – 9 separate wildfires were attributed to PG&E.   It filed for bankruptcy in 2019 and was bailed out by Newsom in 2020.

Natural gas was the primary source to power PG&E.   It diversified in the 1990’s to the utilization of some hydroelectric usage, but droughts hampered the ability to produce power. And droughts are a mainstay of California.

PG&E’s renewable source for utility plants is estimated to be 32%.   That would include hydroelectric which consumes vast amounts of water – another huge depleted asset in the US.  That means 68% of power is generated thru fossil fuels.   HELLO!

Lets look at another top utility company and its profit margin.

Duke Energy services North Caroline, Tennessee and South Carolina.   Its revenues are upwards of $23billion annually, achieved thru ‘natural gas’ facilities and ‘water reactors’. The CEO, Lynn Good, rakes in annual compensation of more than $14 million per year and simultaneously sits on the Board of Boeing earning her additional income.   IN 2002, Duke was named the 46th largest polluter in the US.   Eighteen of its facilities are ‘coal fired’ and 23 are oil and gas fired.

But electric energy is – CLEAN.

Transitioning to Green energy is NOT viable. At least not given we haven’t developed a source that can generate the needs demanded of coal, oil and gas.   A nuclear plant requires years for approval and another 20 years to build.   Europe is shuttering their nuclear facilities.   The alternatives have yet to be scientifically developed.   Solar is solar specific and not captured.   Wind is a veritable disaster!   And water is more precious than GOLD!

Which is why the Flintstones cartoon makes headlines.

In an Amazon world – all employees would exist within a housing unit city for the purpose of doing Amazon work 13 hours per day and paying rent for the privilege to work in their city state.   Their life would revolve around one thing – work. Their existence would be determined by their work.   And their productivity would be monitored by their accomplishments for Amazon – as determined by Amazon police Karens.  And as mini-me robots, their utilization of energy would be reduced.

Such an existence would require – no cars, no travel, no vacations, no movement outside the complex.   That is the vision of Bezos.   Workers. Bees to the queen.   Nothing more.

The largest investor of Duke Energy that services the Carolina’s is CalPers – which is a subsidiary of California Government Operations Agency under the guidance of Governor Gavin Newsom.    Surprise.

IN February 2020, Gavin Newsom et al proposed a governmental takeover of PG&E.   And the MSM was wholly supportive…

Exelon would seem to top the charts in revenue for a ‘clean source’ with $40 billion annual revenues , $118 billion in assets, and a portfolio that includes Nuclear Power, fossil fuels, natural gas and Hydroelectric… blah-blah.

In other words – NONE of the electric producers in the US are anything but – consumers of nonrenewable plants – nor do they have any incentive to alter that diaspora.   Money is money – and they are making plenty as the incentive to use more via fake electrical greens escalates.  How much more they can make should conversion to electric energy vs gas stations is likely in the Trillions.

In the end – GREEN has absolutely Nothing to do with preserving the Planet or reducing emissions, or saving anything!   It has everything to do with a new source of revenue gouging by creating an overload and thus ramping up electricity costs 120-130% – or more….  Have fun!

It is no different than the WWII war effort wherein industries played their profits by supporting both sides and oil became the new gold.

Hedge your bets – buy electricity company stock – maybe then you can afford your monthly bill. They like to call it a Green Revolution – but in actually it is simply another Elite Gouge – for profit.
