California Dreaming: Push for 100% Wind & Solar Doomed to End in Costly Failure

Apart from a major question of practicality, where’s the money supposed to come from for these ideologically driven policies?

Some citizens are already resisting…
California Climate Policies Facing Revolt from Civil-Rights Groups


Renewable energy zealots talk about the ‘transition’ to an all wind and sun powered future being ‘inevitable’. Except that the only thing inevitable about running on sunshine and breezes, is grid chaos and rocketing power prices. Ask a South Australian.

It is also what that crazy German Corporal with the funny moustache called a “big lie”: so helpful to the tyrant because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted and more readily fall victim to a colossal untruth, than the small lie.

The idea that a country can run itself entirely on wind and solar power is, of course, patent nonsense.

But, there are plenty profiting from that ideologically driven fiction, who have worked out that if you ramp up the claims to the height of ridiculousness, there are plenty of idiots ready to believe you.

California has done just that.

California cannot run on…

    Yes, this is foolishness way beyond Stupid! Atop the drive to end fueled Electric Power Generation, Nuclear Generation, there is a drive to require Electrical based transportation, This Insane-asylum is being run by the inmates. This is way beyond ignorance, this is deliberate stupid.
    Our electric bill has doubled in less then 10 years and they want to double it again in the next 3.
    This is their second stab at stupid as they did the same thing back in the 1970s. Moonbeam and his gang deliberately wreaking the state’s economy to “save the world”,from what! Their Religion?

    Once again I must consider installing my own generation. The last time this happened, they instituted a ban on independent generation by requiring special permitting and there were no permits available. It ended with throwing the Democratic Bums out and installing Republicans in. That worked for a few years but then the next wave of Republicans turned out to be Bums as well and the state went back to Democrats. At least Democrats are expected to be Bums…pg

    those windmills are the most gawd awful ugly pieces of crap ever invented. They are destroying the beauty of the land while providing spastic outputs of variant energy causing massive balancing issues for the grid controllers all at the cost of three to four times ‘normal’ power supply and sucking up billions in tax money both over and under the table.

    So what’s not to like? [/sarc, for those who couldn’t tell 🙂 ]

    Well hopefully California achieves its stated goal very soon.
    And then it will be utterly quiet from the US state that brought us so much empty virtue signalling.
    Please, New York follow California’s lead — which should ensure quietude from most of the US’s idiotic MSN.

    Changing the direction of the jet stream over the Atlantic followed on increase in the geomagnetic activity at the end of August 2018.
