Trump is on target regarding German energy (John Droz, Jr.)

July 19, 2018
It's disturbing how uninformed some of the comments are regarding President Trump's recent strong messages to our European allies, especially Germany. Consider this basic overview about a key element that he rightly expressed concern about regarding the German energy plan:

Fact #1: Germany was a lead proponent of the Paris "Accord." In that agreement, the signatories have identified "climate change" as a matter of utmost importance.
Fact #2: Those same countries (with Germany leading the way) promised that they will make significant CO2 reductions shortly.
Fact #3: Essentially none of those countries are actually meeting their promised CO2 reductions – and in some cases CO2 has gone up!
Fact #4: Over the last 50-plus years, the number one worldwide source of CO2 reduction has been nuclear energy.
Fact #5: Despite claiming the urgency of making CO2 reductions, under political pressure from alarmists, Germany chose to shut down its functioning nuclear facilities.
Fact #6: Germany's energy "plan" (Energiewende) was to have nuclear base-load generation replaced by renewables – a technical impossibility.
Fact #7: This reality dawned on them when this voluntary reduction in reliable electrical energy generation put Germany in a difficult spot – and they started experiencing an increasing number of brownouts and blackouts...........................

Fact #13: Russian natural gas to Europeans is currently more expensive that what U.S. natural gas sells for here.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT (excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.”

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
