This is one of the most important emails - heading for a catastrophe

Wind energy is unpredictable and uncontrollable
This is a MAJOR update of a quick email I sent on Sunday to some select NYS contacts. Although it is about New York State, it directly applies to most other states, as well as most other countries. (Ed - my bold)

In a nutshell, this is one of the most important emails I have EVER sent you…

Here is a fascinating and revealing news article behind a paywall that I’m alerting you to. It is about just a few of the complications that will result from NYS’s Clean Energy Standard (CES).
It discusses, the NYISO (the NYS electric grid operator) 2018 Power Trends Report which (paraphrasing Churchill):
defends itself against the risk of being read by its very length and obfuscating technical jargon.

Note that the article observations are coming from a top NYISO person. In other words this is someone on the electrical energy front lines who is struggling to deal with political energy policies — which (in NY) are divorced from Science or economics, and are completely oblivious of the technical consequences.

Seeing these unusually frank insider observations, should be an eye-opener.

As an overview, there are several startling acknowledgements, essentially saying:
1- Wind energy is an unrelentingly unpredictable and uncontrollable energy source,
2 - Increasing wind energy on the grid is causing serious reliability issues,
3 - Wind energy has very little Capacity Value, and that has not been adequately addressed,
4 - Due to the inherent nature of wind energy it must be permanently paired with gas,
5 - Adding more wind energy to the grid will require substantially more gas to be added to the grid,
6 - The costs to deal with wind energy on the grid are rapidly increasing,
7 - None of the costs incurred by wind energy are directly attributed to wind energy,
8 - There are similar major issues with solar, also not quite as severe,
9 - None of the politicians or NGOs promoting wind or solar are acknowledging any of these issues,
10-“Stakeholders” are currently discussing a carbon tax, to make this situation even worse.

What else do you need to know to confirm that we are headed for a catastrophe?

 Well, there’s more…

Note that there is a very strong parallel here with the US mortgage meltdown of several years ago — which led to a world-wide major economic downturn. After the fact, when insiders were interviewed about what happened, they acknowledged that everyone-in-the-know knew that the lending, etc. policies put in place (by lobbyists) were guaranteed to fail.

Unless major changes are made quickly, several years from now there will be experts commenting on how the US energy grid failure (which will lead to a collapse of our economy, and our national security, and our society), was entirely predictable based on the self-serving unscientific energy policies put in place by lobbyists.

If you think this is an exaggeration, simply shut off the electricity in a major city, and see quickly it is before chaos and lawlessness ensues.

Now do the same for an entire region. Etc.

Once you’ve grasped the magnitude of that, you’ll understand why the Russians have put so much effort into promoting US energy policies that are completely non-sensical — to anyone but them. (See Subverting US Energy Policies for more details.)

The ONLY solution is to change our energy policies to be Science-based — starting with dumping the absurd “All of the Above” slogan, and replacing it with “All of the Sensible” as a national energy mantra.

The good news here is that this calamity is 100% preventable….

Let me know any questions.

PS — See this insightful article, on the exact same subject.

PPS — After reading the Politico piece yesterday, a NYS utility expert shared with me several observations, including the following:
"A close colleague of mine worked at NYSERDA and is familiar with NYS agencies.  We both acknowledge that there are many staff people at DPS, DEC and NYISO who know this is going to end badly.  However, the micro-management of the agencies and the overt pressure on the NYISO to not be independent from the Administration, is keeping dissent under wraps.  The only people that the NY political administration listens to, are those that say what they want to hear.

"Reading the Politico article and the platitudes about incentivizing rapid response resources makes me want to either laugh or cry.  Just as there was not enough private interest in offshore wind so NYPA had to step in, I guarantee that no private developer will want to develop a new gas turbine plant.  There is no business case for such a development in NYS.  The problem is that the only way this issue will be recognized as important is when it gets to a crisis at best, and at worst after some blackouts occur."

  1. I've thought for quite some time now that this looming catastrophe is exactly what the eco-communists of the UN IPCC and the entire UN for that matter want to see.
    I don't care what anyone tries to say to the contrary, but NOBODY can be that stupid: To really believe that so-called 'renewable' energy is economically viable and can really power our advanced civilization in the way present-day RELIABLE, fossil fuel driven electric power generation can.
    Even if human caused climate change was real and CO2 emissions were really an issue, wind and solar cannot even be seriously considered as a viable alternative. If CO2 emissions were really the serious threat to our planet's survival as the deluded ecoloons want us all to believe: 100% emission free nuclear power would be the obvious choice for a RELIABLE alternative. Besides, if wind was really a practical and workable alternative, it would already have been deployed for electric power generation LONG AGO. Coal or gas fired, or nuclear power stations would never even have bee invented. There would never have been a need for them - windmills have been around since the 12th century...
    However, they won't even consider nuclear because it WORKS... Much better in fact and much more reliably than any fossil fuel power.
    They want to destroy capitalism through global de-industrialization, not facilitate industrial development and growth which nuclear energy would allow!
    The treacherous governments, including Australia's who all signed up to the Paris Climate Scam KNOW that 'renewables' don't work and can NEVER provide, continuous and reliable base-load electricity, which is essential to power our civilization's vital industries.
    They therefore, also KNOW that wind and solar will absolutely GUARANTEE the total collapse of our industries and then our entire Western civilization. This is what they want!
    This bunch of despicable, humanity loathing Socialist zealots want to destroy capitalism, using energy poverty as an effective 'control lever' to take control of everyone's lives, once they form their misanthropic, UN based totalitarian global world government.
    They are not concerned at all about 'saving the planet', but are obsessed with CONTROLLING every living human being unfortunate enough to be living on it, once they take over.
    The entire AGW scam was invented for that purpose alone. As a Trojan Horse to hide their real Socialist, anti-humanity, population controlling agenda.
    This is only the beginning and is set to become a lot worse, very soon.
    What's needed is firstly, for the dumbed-down masses to understand that it is an enormous hoax and to fully understand how it was developed and why it was, then see that it is in fact the most evil scam ever perpetrated on humanity, throughout our entire history. And their wicked 'master plan for humanity' must NEVER be allowed to proceed.
    Once they realize and accept what's really behind it all a revolt, much bigger than any seen in the past will need to occur, else the entire planet will become an energy devoid, medieval era socialist ruled regime. A true, living Hell.
    Reliable base load electricity is what powers our modern civilization and therefore capitalism means freedom for anyone who wants to work hard using the great facilities that were made available thanks to our limitless imaginations, human creativity and ingenuity. The greens HATE the society that such creativity and overall human endeavor has built over the past 40 centuries or so, and only wish to destroy it. And energy poverty facilitated by guaranteed USELESS and unreliable (wind and solar) 'renewables' which they have convinced far too many people through their relentless propaganda, are needed for the totally FALSE mission of 'saving the planet'; is how they plan to do it.
    We MUST stop them NOW, while we still can.
