California’s Lack Of Power And Blackouts Are Due To ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

California has a wee bit of a problem as of late, eh?

(Breitbart) This week, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) told his state — and his party — that they needed to “sober up” about the potential of renewable energy sources like solar and wind power to manage the needs of an advanced economy.

Newsom explained that the state was short of power because the wind was not blowing, and because solar power was not available as the sun went down — right as demand peaked for electricity as the state struggled with a major heat wave.

He went on to say that while he remained committed to fulfilling California’s law mandating 100% renewable energy by 2045, the state needed “backup” and “insurance” because “green” energy sources were simply not reliable enough.

California has been doing away with everything not “renewable”, including nuclear power. But, see, the real problem is “extreme weather” because you ate a cheeseburger

Climate Change Lesson From California’s Blackouts: Prepare For Extremes

Scorching heat across the Western United States has left California scrambling to avoid rolling blackouts, as air conditioners send electricity use soaring.

Some people blame the power outages on California’s reliance on solar power, which drops off when the sun sets. But energy experts say state officials failed to prepare adequately for high temperatures, despite the fact that California’s own scientists and regulators have warned that increasingly common heat waves driven by climate change would stress the electricity grid.

“You can’t control the weather, but you can prepare for the weather events,” California Governor Gavin Newsom said. “And let me just make this crystal clear, we failed to predict and plan for these shortages.”

The California Independent System Operator runs most of the state’s grid, the system of transmission lines that takes electricity from power plants to communities. As temperatures crept above 110 degrees in some parts of the state over the last week, California ISO knew the end of each day would be the toughest.

See? It’s the fault of anthropogenic climate change, not that there just isn’t enough energy production from solar and wind (also, that government is too heavily involved in controlling energy production and distribution). Extremes will always happen: that’s why there are weather averages. That’s life on earth. But, is anyone hearing about rolling blackouts in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, or Texas?

“I don’t think this is the fault of solar at all,” says Borenstein. “I think it means that we have to take a new planning approach.”

Instead of making more electricity, one option is to simply reduce demand on hot days. The state already has voluntary programs where homeowners and large commercial and industrial facilities pay lower electricity rates, in exchange for agreeing to reduce their power use on very hot days. Private companies, like OhmConnect, also enroll homeowners to reduce their use on demand.

See? The solution to not getting power when the sun is down is to just get people to turn their electricity off. Voluntary blackouts.

“Air conditioning is a huge amount of the load in California on very hot days,” says Borenstein. “And so if we could get people to just reset their air conditioning four degrees warmer, we would probably be able to get through even the very tough Monday and Tuesday of this week.”

But, if you set it 4 degrees higher, it will still be turning on and off almost the same in an attempt to keep the building that temperature. Seriously, rather than having a proper supply of power to keep citizens comfortable during the summer, using the modern convenience of air conditioning, they want us to just sweat and be miserable for their climate cult beliefs.

    Attention would be democratic voters.

    Biden/Harris and every other so called MODERATE Dem will campaign as these love America, thump the bible, candidates who promise to represent YOU until they get elected.

    Once Elected they will bow to Pelosi, ShamPow Shumer and do whatever they tell them to do and they will tell them to essentially be insanely left.

    Quite literally there were people who ran as opposing Trumps impeachment in basically Red districts only to VOTE FOR IMPEACHMENT and chant lock him up the day they arrived in DC.

    Remember that when you think this Democrat seems reasonable. They will stab you in the back if you think they are moderate. Now if your a far, far leftist then by all means vote for any Democrat you want.

    But if your a moderate, independent or never Trumper your insane if you think any democrat will now cower in fear to the BLM, Cancel culture in the Dem party and become radical lefties.

    Remember that when you vote.

      ELECTION 2020
      If This Poll Is Accurate, Trump Will Be Reelected Easily
      BY MATT MARGOLIS AUG 02, 2020 6:14 PM EST

      In August 2019, black voter approval for Trump stood at 26 percent.

      HOWEVER:

      Two months ago, black likely voter approval for President Trump in the Rasmussen Reports daily tracking poll was at 40 percent.

      And the lastest poll puts his numbers at almost 50 percent.

      He is consistently polling higher and higher with Blacks and it is just not one poll but several. We will never know for sure with the chaos that is going to surround this election as the Democrats try this stupid mail in voting BS.

      There is EARLY VOTING. Where they set up machines and people can walk in and vote like two months before the election. Their is absentee voting and with early voting it would be very easy to diminish the day of voting by 50-75 percent.

      Dr. Fauxahontas even says its safe to vote in person. Oh the humanity.

      RASSMUSSEN DAILY during the DNC convention: 48 percent the first day and 47 percent day two. After the blistering and scathing Trump is evil convention you would think those numbers would be at 30 percent.

      They are not. The GOP gets to go next week and expose who the Democrats really are. Landslide 20/20.

    I am just stunned that the Democrat strategy of causing a hysterical panic over a flu, lying about the deaths, closing down small businesses and unemploying 30 million Americans deliberately to cause Trumps economy harm will not pan out. The Democrats were sure that hurting the very people you need to vote for them was a winning scheme. So much they sent out their brownshirts to commit a three month long Kristallnacht in all their perpetually blue Democrat controlled cities just to show they could.

    The Democrats, now taken over by a cabal of Nazi Antifa and Marxist BLM political/religious sects is waging civil war on America, especially white America. This video shows what the Democrats are turning America into. THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE REPUBLICAN,CONSERVATIVE, TRUMP SUPPORTER, OR EVEN WHITE SUPREMACIST IN THESE CROWDS. THEY ARE ALL DEMOCRATS AND WANT YOU TO VOTE DEMOCRAT. They are Elwood’s “brotha’s and sista’s”. He’s as guilty as they are.
