Biden Administration Sending Emergency Diesel Generators to Texas

By Eric Worrall | Watts Up With That? | February 18, 2021

If you were expecting [proclaimed] President Biden to ship emergency solar panels to Texas, you were wrong. Looks like when renewable energy fails, as it did in Texas, even the Biden administration turns to more reliable forms of energy.

Biden administration sending generators to Texas amid power outages

Ursula Perano | February 18, 2021

… White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at a briefing on Wednesday that the Biden administration is sending emergency generators to Texas amid ongoing power outages and freezing weather.

Why it matters: Huge swaths of Texas have been without electricity for days due to critical failures in the state’s power grid. The outages come while a winter storm continues to pummel the state, causing unsafe conditions and a desperate need for heat. … Read more

Click here to see a video of Jen Psaki explaining the plan to send diesel generators to Texas and other states likely to be affected by winter storms.

Even if a storm like this only happens every 20 years, going 100% renewable is clearly now unacceptable. People who rely on electricity for heating are in deadly danger, if the only source of power is renewable energy, and the renewable energy systems freeze solid during severe ice storms.

If the plan is to maintain enough diesel backup to keep the lights on when renewables fail, renewables will never be affordable. Consumers will be saddled with the expense of maintaining the renewable infrastructure, and the additional expense of maintaining a complete second set of power infrastructure at operational readiness, ready to switch on when the renewables fail.

  1. Snowing in Texas? I’m on the other side of the Planet so, pardon my ignorance, is that ‘normal’? I thought Texas was Hot.
    Snow in Texas would seem to make a mockery of “Global Warming”(and all the Newspaper talk about the Planet heating up).
    Honestly, we cannot believe a word we read or hear in our MSM these days.

    • I was in a snowstorm in Midland Texas back in the winter of 98-99 when it snowed 12 inches in one hour!!!!! It does get cold in Texas but nothing like this year!!!! It’s not global warming but global COOLING going on now. In Texas it does get mighty cold in the winter….it’s not always hot there….just in the spring, summer and autumn.
