No Coal, No Power, No Gas

by Jeffrey Folks - February 11th, 2011 - The American Thinker

Let's see if I get this straight. During the early February cold spell in the southern plains, when wind chills in Dallas dipped to minus twenty degrees, Texans were going without power to heat their homes and businesses even as the state was sitting on massive surpluses of natural gas. Even hospitals were having to switch to emergency generating systems. And this in the state with the largest energy production capacity in the continental US.

How was it that Texas suffered an extended period of rolling blackouts at a time when there's a glut of coal and natural gas waiting to be used?

The detailed answer - as provided in the article - is that environmental extremists have gutted the ability of Texas to use its energy to benefit the people of Texas. This is the same insane strategy the environmental extremists are currently extending to the rest of our nation. And unfortunately, the Obama administration totally embraces the stupidity and is helping to make it happen. We are shipping the needed energy to China, which is not afflicted with the short sighted stupidity of the environmental extremists or the Obama administration.

As it becomes clear that the danger of man caused global warming has always been a scam to provide political cover for a global socialist takeover of the world's governments, and evidence appears that the real threat is a massive and rapid global cooling from an incipient ice age, the most important question that must be answered is how long will it be before the MSM catches up with reality?

Don't hold your breath. It will not happen soon.
