Regulator Warns Of Deadly Nationwide Summer Blackouts As Environmentalists Shut Down Power Plants

Regulators overseeing the nation’s electricity supply are warning this summer will bring crippling blackouts across much of the country.

The warning of deadly power shortages comes after years of Green New Deal-style policies have shut down reliable power suppliers and tried to replace it with inefficient and expensive “green energy” – resulting in life-threatening shortages.

“In its annual summer assessment released this week, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation noted that the Upper Midwest is facing a capacity shortfall leading to a ‘high risk of energy emergencies.’ The entire Western U.S. also could face a power outage emergency in the event of spikes in energy use,” CBS News reports.

“We’ve been doing this for close to 30 years. This is probably one of the grimmest pictures we’ve painted in a while,” John Moura, NERC’s director of reliability assessment and performance analysis, told CBS MoneyWatch.

One culprit is that instead of building new power plants, existing power generation is being retired under “green” policies.

For years, they have taken the approach to “appease” environmental activists while reserve power (thermal generation) has continued to be taken off-line and reduce capacity & reliability. There needs to be an honest, thoughtful conversation about our national energy policies before the current energy illiterate “lunatics” collapse the entire electric grid…
