America’s Power Grid at the Limit: The Road to Electrical Blackouts
Even though temperatures have not risen in years (despite the rise in CO2), the EPA appears to be on a suicide mission to impair America’s ability to secure her energy future by imposing the use of renewable energy that:
Provides a fraction of the energy fossil fuel does;
Is weather dependent and will not work in severe weather
Is intermittent and unreliable;
Causes great harm to the environment;
“Skyrockets” fuel prices that harms poor people the most and
Does nothing to mitigate Climate Change.
