The left are suicidal. Unfortunately, they are into murder suicide and they want to take us with them.
I want to franchise treadmill powered home generators nationwide.

I thought “cross hairs” was now restricted rhetoric. Where is that AZ sheriff when we need him?

Oregon Public Broadcasting? Do they somehow do “broadcasting” without using electricity? I’m missing something I’m sure.

It would be interesting to know where the hell they think that lost capacity will come from. Certainly not dams since they have long been on a campaign to get rid of them. Pretty soon we’ll not only have to build a mexican border fence but also fences around states like Oregon, California and cities like Detroit to keep the third world democrats from polluting the rest of the country.

Al Gore has spent years and much money campaigning and fundraising for Green candidates in western states. The strategy was to create a fossil-fuel-free region with its own cap-and-trade system to serve as a model for a mandated national scheme. Gore and his partner, former Goldman Sachs investment expert David Blood, have purchased carbon credit paper from around the world through their Generation Investment Management fund. Investors include the Church of England to the tune of $250 million. Once Congress enacted Cap-and-Trade Gore and Blood would have a captive market in the U.S. industrial sector to sell their credits. The value of these credits would inflate substantially once the president signed the new law. Shutting down coal-fired generators wasn't really in Gore's equation because carbon-emitting industry would be his market.

Soon, Oregon voters will be demanding power from other states to keep them from freezing and expensive utility bills.
Oregon regulators sealed a deal to shut down the coal-fired power plant in Boardman by 2020. Now the one other large coal-fired power plant in the Northwest is in the political cross hairs
At what point does the public push back?
We are taking more generation out of service than we are placing into service.....
.....At the same time, the POTUS is pushing electric cars while making petroleum too expensive.
As with all systems, something has to give in the energy equation for it to balance out. I don't think too many people are going to accept living like peasants in the 17th century.
We will see a new meaning for the phrase "Blood for Oil" in the not too distant future IMHO. And I don't mean war in the middle east. There will be riots over energy. Coal and oil will be back in favor when this is all said and done. Nuclear too, but it will take longer to increase capacity.

Well, if they don’t want coal-fired plants, then they should complete construction on the 4 WHOOPS nukie plants they shut down in the 80’s.
I worked on WPPSS #3 as a pipefitter. It was 70% complete and they shut it down. Purged all the piping so they could re-start construction at a later date. Uhhh, It’s later.

Centralia WA -- not Oregon!
A measure debated Tuesday in Olympia would require the privately-owned plant in Centralia, Washington to stop burning coal by 2020 as well.
