The US imports huge amounts of electricity from Canada.

Can't fix stupid.

The watermelons want to renovate energy in terms of renewables like wind and solar that have come off as poor also-rans across much of the US and in Germany this winter. (Merkel is buying nuke power from France as frozen solar panels and windmills sit idle this frigid season.)

The greenie weenies want us all to drive EV cars, which some say will require us to double our electricity output. Then there is the pollution from the necessary and mostly made in China rare earths. These are a problem both in the production and the disposal parts of the product life cycle.

You cannot talk to these people. I have tried.

Really interesting article, at least to me, since I was mixed up in that nonsense several years ago.

Actual title: The Greenest Energy Isn't Even Being Considered (I knew exactly where that was going from the title.)

I know what happened at Fukushima and Pripyat (Chernobyl), TMI, not so much, but have a pretty good idea.

Nuclear power can be safe and only generates a cigarette pack-size waste/citizen over a person's lifetime, but US law precludes that because, well, stupid policy.

I could go on and on about that, but most here would find it boring and it might make AOC's head explode.

Natural cycles are going to make people think hard about what really works as opposed to the feel good stuff they've been fed.

Lots of people believe it's gonna get much colder.

Then it'll be too late.

I'll defer to you and Horse on that one, but my short term observation confirms that theory. Worst year in FTW since the blizzard of 78.

Our nuke-powered subs have been operating pretty well for decades now.

You have nuclear powered submarines? Cool! I thought you might have a yacht or two at the marina in Corpus Christi, but nuclear subs? So cool!

Yeah, you oughtta see all the shit me and Loddy (and a few other guys) bought over the years. Jet aircraft, ships, tanks, a bazillion guns, bombs, land, buildings, islands in the S Pacific, name it.

We're just not allowed to play with any of it.

South Pacific islands, you say?

Probably not too many of those on Howland, Baker, Jarvis, Palmyra, Midway, Johnston, etc...

Maybe Bidet can get the guano trade rolling again.

It only takes one, brother.

BTW in case you didn't notice, she's Elizabeth Louise Malamalamaokalani White, the girl who unpins her hair while running down the beach at the start of every episode in the original Hawaii Five-0 TV series.

But I've never needed an entertainer, NN.

Fortunately for us we have had zero power outages up here in Minnesota. We do however pay a lot more for utilities than most people. Gas prices started to spike prior to the cold snap right on cue. Things are going to take a serious turn with agriculture this year if this cold keeps going along. Though we are to have a rather good warm up here this week. We’re supposed to hit the 30’s by Friday which will be a welcome change.

If you guys had been local or if I had been in Texas, I would have been able to loan you guys a generator or a wood burning stove. The cold does not really affect me too badly up here, it’s the idiocy that I have a profound problem with.

Winter is not a kind time of the year and it literally wipes the face of the earth clean of the weak, at least it used to 100 to 150 years ago. The problem we have is that we have too many people selling us on these schemes that enrich their buddies, their family members and make the people who buy these things essentially collaborators.

Didn't know. TeeVee isn't one of my strong points.

Malamalamaokalani

Damn, that'd make a wickid screen name.

We got rid of the TV in 1986; not my strong point either. But my dad and I used to watch the lovely Malamalamaokalani run down the beach every week in the 60's.

Holy smokes, the show ran from 1968-1980. Who knew?

My Dad's show was M*A*S*H (1972-1983). He only made it part way into the fifth season.
