It doesn’t matter how beautiful your theory is, it doesn’t matter how smart you are. If it doesn’t agree with experiment, it’s wrong.

Richard Feynman

One of the basic rules of existence is that reality doesn’t care what you think or how you feel or what your cause is. Reality IS.

To wit:

Germany

In Europe in general and Germany in particular the greens have been fighting against fossil fuels and nuclear power for decades. Some of us have argued this was idiotic and noted that it only helped Russia but were laughed at.

They’re not laughing in Germany now:

Now the Greens are having to make a great energy leap. As members of the German government they are staring close up at the realities of soaring energy prices. They are having to face the prospect of the lights going off this winter, and of public buildings in major cities such as Hamburg already trying to ration the amount of electricity they use. The Greens’ demand that everybody else join them in a fantastical leap has now reversed into the Greens recognizing that their society simply is not ready.

England:

Today it emerged that Britons could be asked to limit energy use this winter to head off blackouts by avoiding using gas and electricity at peak times in a move that will hit every part of life.

At home people may be encouraged not to use washing machines, dishwashers and ovens between 2pm and 8pm while charging cars before 9pm is also not advised when similar measures were imposed in the US this year. Abandoning the family weekday dinner at 6pm or the Sunday roast at 5pm may be required and moved to after 8pm or swapped for a cold dinner or leftovers.

Green Energy is a great grift even better than BLM but if it doesn’t produce the energy people go cold and that means something burns.

Jackson Mississippi

It seems that Mayor Lumumba performed solidly on the revolutionary pronouncements part of the job — “The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house,” he told The New York Times in 2020 — but not much in the way keeping the water treatment plants working.

According to our media, a major city in the United States of America 2022, does not have drinking water either because of heavy rain (who could have anticipated RAIN?) or racism.

Apparently the over 80% black population of Jackson figured electing an ultra radical, with the approval and celebration of white liberals all over the world was a great achievement. But said achievement pales in comparison to the engineering needed to provide water to tens of thousands a major city.

Being so fond of leftist you would think they would have taken WH Auden’s famous quote to heart:

Thousands have lived without lovenot one without water.

W.H. Auden

Portland Ore:

Demetryus Bright recently took a job with the Portland Timbers as an account executive and moved his family from Ohio to Portland, hoping to escape the rampant gun violence. But after four months, his wife already wants their family to leave.

Bright says the homeless camps in the South Tabor neighborhood have him fearing for his family’s safety and that his car and home have been vandalized. He also said there have been fires on the street, including one that took place Tuesday night.“

It’s kind of disappointing. I worked hard to get where I’m at, to move my family 36 hours, to deal with this? No,” he said. “Gunshots and gun violence and that’s one reason we moved, to get away from stuff like that. And to feel safe walking to school, and to move to a nice neighborhood but it’s like there are people doing narcotics sitting outside. We can’t let our kids go outside and play on the front porch, let alone walk to school.”

Mind you the problems in Portland have not been a secret for years, at least if you read or watch anything other than the MSM yet this fool took his family TO Portland just four months ago.

Good luck selling that house of yours.


And finally in Wilkes Barrie PA where both Joe Biden and Donald Trump held rallies this week. Compare and contrast:

The real story here is that you don’t face any backlash from attending a Biden Rally, big tech, big government big education & the violent left et al will celebrate you for attending while you face the wrath of all for showing at the other

Yeah Joe Biden got the most votes in the history of the republic, sure he did.

A final thought about all of this. All of these are examples have one thing in common. The decisions that led to each of these realities were all made freely by the folks now facing these realities.

It’s a perfect analogy to Christianity, Christ offers forgiveness of sins and redemption but does not impose it, you are perfectly free to push away his extended hand and ignore his mother and the saint who offer to help you along that path to him. If you do Christ will stand back and await your call but till it comes he will let you face the reality of the world without him.

Free will.

Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.

WH Auden

Jazz Show last week gave us warning that in part of the west they should expect rolling blackouts:

The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has released its latest reliability assessment for the summer of 2022 and, to put it mildly, the news is not good. In far too many states, the power grid is already nearly at full capacity, and in the next few months, that capacity will be exceeded. This isn’t a question of “if” or really even “when.” It’s just a fact. Industry experts know this and have been trying to sound the alarm for several years. 

So what’s the solution I wonder? Well the left coast (via Don Surber) has it. Blow up the Dams!

“The first of four aging dams on the Klamath River, the 250-mile waterway that originates in southern Oregon’s towering Cascades and empties along the rugged Northern California coast, is on track to come down in fall 2023. Two others nearby and one across the state line will follow.

“The nearly half-billion dollars needed for the joint state, tribal and corporate undertaking has been secured. The demolition plans are drafted. The contractor is in place. Final approval could come by December.”

A state that faces rolling blackouts in the summer and water shortages year-round is blowing up its hydroelectric dams.

So you are having shortages of water and we have the threat of blackouts in the west and their solution is to BLOW UP FRIGGEN DAMS!?!

Well I guess this is the type of plan you get when you’re neglecting math, science and engineering for gender both in government and education.

How are you going to power up all those green cars without energy?

Someone needs to teach these people that electricity doesn’t come from plugs and water doesn’t come from taps.

But when they’re burning wood and using candles to keep warm and to generate light they’ll figure it out, maybe.
