Why Greenies and the Liberal Media Don't Want You to Read About Canada Amid Texas' Deep Freeze

Dana Mathewson

The beginning of this article deftly skewers some myths we're already hearing about the cause of the deadly storms in Texas.

If you ever watched South Park, ‘blame Canada’ was quite the tune. Well, as Texas has plunged into a deep freeze due to widespread power outages after a historic and brutal winter storm, maybe we should look to Canada regarding how they keep their power grids running amid frigid conditions. It’s not what you think. It actually proves our point about energy production, which is why the liberal media and the environmental Left probably don’t want you to read this thread about Alberta, Canada.

How are they able to keep the lights on? It’s simple coal and gas. The two sectors the Left wants to ax from our production capacity. I’ve seen all the so-called fact checks. Wind power isn’t why Texas lost power. Renewable energy isn’t the reason, except that it is. Sorry, the facts are the facts. This push for heavily subsidized wind energy that’s wholly unreliable is what caused the blackouts. The turbines did freeze up. and the wind was responsible for over 40 percent of Texas’ energy. In short, the California model is a good foundational policy to give your residents unreliable energy. The Wall Street Journal torched this green energy push, aptly noting that this policy has put more people in danger than so-called global climate change.

"Wind’s share has tripled to about 25% since 2010 and accounted for 42% of power last week before the freeze set in. About half of Texans rely on electric pumps for heating, which liberals want to mandate everywhere,” they wrote. "But the pumps use a lot of power in frigid weather. So while wind turbines were freezing, demand for power was surging.”

A number of Tweets, which I can't reproduce here, from an Alex Epstein, explain a lot. And we continue:

"The media want you to believe that TX's failure to handle spiking demand during cold temps proves that a fossil-fueled grid can't handle such a challenge,” Epstein wrote on Twitter. "They don't want you to know about Alberta, CA--where a fossil-fueled grid handled a far bigger challenge with relative ease.”

Alberta also endured a record-high energy demand. The province managed because they invested in fossil fuels and not wind, which Epstein noted is "unreliable.” And both Texas and Alberta work on isolated grids. This is a very fixable issue.

"Alberta proves with 100% certainty that coal and gas plants can easily run in far more adverse conditions than Texas had. That's why the anti-fossil fuel media do not want you to know the story of Alberta,” he added.

Nothing will beat fossil fuels in terms of efficiency and reliability. It works. What doesn’t work are these so-called alternatives that conk out when some snow hits.

2 It's a rouse and always has been. Wind is inherently unreliable as is solar. We cannot build an  economy based on that. And they don't want nuclear, despite it being reliable and actually quite safe.

Basically they don't want power at all - which is the whole point.

3 Er, I mean ruse. I hate that you can't edit comments here.

4 Right, Tim. I hate to complain, but there are a number of features of this blog's software that could be approved. After repeated requests, the webmaster still hasn't responded to my plea for power to zap comments, such as the ads for drugs that have surfaced again. I hope he hasn't succumbed to COVID!

5 Well Dana for a free site this is terrific, but yes, I would love some improvements. Part of the problem I think is that Pixy tailored this to MY ancient equipment; he had to restore some old defaults after he did updates because it locked me out of the system. So we have here an older version. I'm still quite pleased with it; it's user friendly by and large. Much better than Blogger where the old Birdblog used to reside.
