Wow, this EPA guy (Joseph Goffman, EPA Associate Assistant Administrator & Senior Counsel) thinks that renewables are going to make up 30% of the power grid by 2030. That may be, but the big hidden gotcha in that is that 30% is not power on demand. It is at the whims of wind and clouds. By replacing that much of the power grid with transient energy, look for brown-outs and black-outs in our future. What happens in a major heat wave (which they predict will be more frequent) and the wind does not blow? Watch the video:

The reality today:
What about Dumbo’s Pink Elephants?
If you look at the date Dumbo was made, it was well before the 60s psychedelic movement. My guess it was the Ganja, the doobie, the Mary Jane, et al that prompted that bit of flying....:o)
I always liked this one:
Can’t think of anything that would be better for Democrat electoral prospects than rotating blackouts. /s
Let’s completely shut-off electricity to liberal enclaves such as the greater DC area, Boston, New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles for 6 months, thereby forcing them to walk the talk, and then see if they think it’s such a great idea.
They will blame it on “Big Energy” and unilaterally take Federal control of the grid under color of National Security.
All the red areas should pay attention. Note that he new carbon control regs say that if any state doesn’t go along, the fed can come in and take over by forcing the power plants to comply. I believe the statement was “They have no way out of this, period.”
Think that “period” was an intended snark? I do.
