Joe Biden and his Democrats are determined to destroy America’s energy independence. For years, they’ve pushed to get rid of fossil fuels. But, what do you think happens after that? Their “green” solutions can’t support our grid’s demands. So, we are forced to pay high prices for foreign oil.
In one super-blue state, they have all but outlawed fossil fuels. The state constantly faces the threat of blackouts, especially in the summer. It seems their hatred for traditional energy sources has led to serious neglect. Because a massive fire just struck a substation, plunging an entire city–and airport–into darkness.
From The Post Millennial:
On Sunday, the Oakland Airport in Northern California was temporarily closed after a Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) electrical substation caught fire at 1 pm, a blaze that also left 50,000 residents in Oakland and Alameda without power for hours…
In the airport, passengers were stuck and waiting at the gates, in security lines, and for an inoperative baggage claim. The Bay Area Rapid Transit, which provides travel to and from the airport, was also shut down.
Some are suggesting the fire was caused by a “targeted attack.” Several substations across the country have been attacked in recent months. But there has yet to be evidence to support this claim. This shocking crisis was undoubtedly the result of California’s neglect of its energy grid.
Democrats rushed to ban fossil fuels, going as far as to ban gas-powered cars in just a few more years. All their electric-powered cars and technology puts more and more strain on the energy grid. On top of that, they have outlawed oil, gas, and coal to generate energy.
So, what are they left with? Wind and solar! Give me a break. We’ve seen, repeatedly, how these “green” sources cannot meet demands. Worse, they provide a hazard to wildlife and the environment. Yet Democrats keep pushing them, and apparently neglecting what grid they still have.
This fire was most likely caused by the negligence of California Democrats. They have refused to invest in their energy grid. Instead, they have thrown taxpayer dollars at every leftist cause imaginable. From free healthcare for illegal aliens to “gender studies” at public schools.
Democrats repeatedly fail at managing even basic things like infrastructure and transportation. They can’t manage our supply chain, our airports, or even our railroads. Now, they are letting substations burn up.
What next? I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re left with only sticks to rub together for fire!
- A fire at an Oakland substation left 50,000 people without power for hours.
- The blackout also shut down the airport, leaving thousands stranded.
- California has banned fossil fuels, leaving the grid in peril.
