National News Reports Predict Electricity Shortages Are Coming.

  The path to comfort slipped right through our hands. Electricity is great when it is just a flip of the switch away, but life can be excruciating when electricity is interrupted, especially when interruptions coincide with unbelievable high prices. 

  Electricity was never meant to be a luxury item, just for the few.  It is one of the most valuable resources for the improvement of everyone's living standards. 
  Whether you believe in the big, bad theory of global warming or not, adjusting to come and go electricity is uncomfortable at best and perilous at worst.
   So, when an opportunity of importing uninterruptible electricity into the grid comes along, we, who like lower cost, reliable electricity, feel some relief from the insanity of energy corruption being unleashed in the form of solar, wind and battery storage, which have been proven to sabotage good business sense as well as being detrimental to the environment.
   The threat of "The Climate Factor" is an evil fabrication destined to cripple people's lives. 
   We must start using our common sense for the common good. We, as humans, have been adjusting to weather conditions rather well with a robust energy system protecting us, energy that is strengthened by the resourcefulness of the human spirit. 
    National news reports predict electricity shortages are coming. 
    The assault on fossil fuels by environmentalists and impractical politicians, along with the insane belief that solar, wind and battery storage have the capacity to seamlessly meet electricity demand, is utter stupidity. Rejecting a substantial boost in reliable electricity to counteract weak wind, solar and batteries is utter stupidity. 
     We soon will find out how stupid it is.

"It doesn't matter that  wind and solar won't be able to power the planet.  They're a symbol of what we should be doing."  

I was actually told that by someone who truly believed we must continue down this path. Civilization as we know it is about to be symbolically "reset".

Green Energy Land Requirements

Calculations of easily obtainable information.


1 terawatts = 1,000,000 Megawatts.


Which would be 333,333.33 wind turbines @ 3Megawatts each.


The U.S. in 2021 used 3,930 terawatt hours.


This would require 1,310,000,000 3Megawatt turbines.


Each at 500-600 feet in height needs 3 acres clearance in open areas or forested areas. Totaling 3,930,000,000 acres needed.


The U.S. Has Nearly 1.9 Billion Acres Of Land. (including lakes, ponds, rivers & streams)


If we tore up every building and road and dedicated it to just wind, we are short by 2,030,000,000 acres needed. If we filled the acres of land between wind turbines with solar, we would still fall short of our energy needs, which increase at about 2-4% per year.


The non-electrical power such as direct use of fossil fuels is not included, which calculates out to 4,584.22 terawatts of power.


So now we would need an additional 1.17 times more wind and solar to electrify the roads and fossil fuel dependent industries.


Which would be another 4,598,100,000 acres, to accomplish this task.


This means that we are currently 6,628,100,000 (Billions) acres short of being able to use renewables. This is assuming we left no room to live, travel, or produce crops or products.


This calculation assumes they, both solar and wind produce 24/7.

Neither can, with wind at an average of 28% annually and solar slightly less in overall expected production.



With those known's, we would need an additional 70% more land or 11,267,770,000 (billion) acres total. There are approximately 36 Billion acres for the entire planet Earth (Including all Oceans).



So, of the total of 13,167,770,000 acres needed to go Green, our 1.9billion acres in the U.S. can NEVER produce more than 6.93% of the 2021 energy use between all current electrical production and for fossil fuel conversion to green.

National Geographic just came out with an article explaining why, if you're sleeping poorly, it's because of climate change.  Critical thinking has become as rare as common sense.  It's up to the people to educate themselves, but most won't.  This is going to get very ugly.

We have predicted that for more than a decade now. I remember in an issue of the National Geographic a few years ago the following sentence ending a paragraph on wind power: " Wind power is the grid operator nightmare ,"    

Intelligence comes from Latin :" Intel Lego ",to discern, to read in between.

So we all know the equation : A corrupt politico/ business model brainwashes a voting group devoid of intelligence .

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(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 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From 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?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From 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.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

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.
