Brazil is fighting against time to avoid crippling power blackouts and electricity rationing as a drought prevents the world's most water-rich nation from recharging its hydroelectric dams.
A decade of growth has diversified the electricity system away from hydropower, but policymakers, industrial companies and investors in the world's seventh-largest economy may find little cause to relax.

Well I thought that Brazil solved all of its power problems forever by growing food to turn into power. This story must be a lie!
Uh, sugar cane ethanol? Which is supposedly now reported to cause more harm than good? i.e. crappy ROI.
For those who choose the beauty of biofuels, BEWARE.
Following in the steps of Spain, a toilet economy due to alternative fuel strategy.
Obama is attempting to do the same with America.
Gosh, another socialist-led third world hell-hole in a downward spiral? Gee, I wish there had been some way to anticipate this.
Enjoy your close ties with Pooty-Poot.
Beat me to it. I guess ethanol isn’t the answer to energy needs.
Coming to your house soon. Those smart meters are installed for a reason. No more KW’s for you this month comrade.
Yup. Got one on the elect and gas. Since I don’t have a windmill or solar panels, didn’t have much choice. Actually, I don’t think anyone in NV had a choice. They’ve even introduced a “voluntary” program for those that choose to have the power company cut back for you during peak hours. What could possibly go wrong here?
I remember during Obama’s first campaign he kept talking about how wonderful Spain was. Then when it all blew up, not a peep from him.

It blew up due to 26% unemployment, second in Europe only to Greece http://www.presstv.com/detail/2014/02/04/349219/spain-jobless-rate-rises-by-25-in-jan/
Obama is earnestly attempting to replicate Spain’s prowess at getting employment to tank so more people will depend upon the govt for help. http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/finance/2011/november/spains-green-disaster-a-lesson-for-america/
