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.
If the damn American and Liberty hating leftist enviro wackos would get out of the way, we could ramp up the Nuclear power in a year.
We had 110 units (each power reactor at each facility) up until 40 years ago, then the enviro wacko traitorous leftist communist democrats used the court systems and the epa to stop power production.
They need to be shot, and we need to start building power.
We could build safe power plants from scratch to finish within a year, if the Unions, Courts and other leftists could be put into their place. We probably could actually do it quicker, but we need to realize the national emergency.
“I don’t think too many people are going to accept living like peasants in the 17th century.”
You would be surprised. There are millions of thoroughly brainwashed people in this country. They will do absolutely everything that the elite tell them to do, even sacrifice themselves for the “greater good” without thinking so much as a single thought. How else can we explain the continued existence of Obama supporters?
