Restore Power,
Then Breach

A 100% renewable future that has not arrived yet and will never happen.

Graphic: Recent Downriver Grain Shipments on the Snake River (2000 - 2019) Rep. Mike Simpson has the cart before the horse when it comes to tearing out dams.

Electricity generation that now comes from dams should be built and on the grid before deciding to remove dams on the Snake River.

Marvin F. Dugger's great commentary explained the fish issues. This letter involves future dystopian life with inadequate electricity for the Northwest.

Last month, the Wall Street Journal reported on the U.S. electric grid's declining reliability and stated there were more than 180 serious blackouts in 2020 alone.

America should learn from Europe's energy crisis brought on by the rapid closure of coal, gas and nuclear electrical generation plants. This lights-out problem is caused by the left's goal of a 100% renewable future that has not arrived yet and will never happen.

Therefore, when Europe's weather-dependent wind turbines and solar panels cannot produce enough power, they will beg Russia to keep Europe's lights on.

Instead, Europe is now doing a sudden U-turn, postponing nuclear closures and ramping up coal generation.

Normal people understand that the American left will never reverse its obsession for fossil-free energy. If politicians are stupid enough to destroy hydroelectric dams, woke Democrats will never allow other options to generate needed electricity.

You have to remember the woke does not like us and are trying to destroy America.

If America is to continue secure, affordable, and reliable energy, policymakers must be intelligent and not eliminate essential hydro, gas and nuclear power capacities before alternatives are in place.
