Food Riots?

The Swiss-German newspaper Heute (“Today” in English) is reporting that the international grocery chain, Spar, has issued warnings to the people of Austria and to their employees regarding food shortages and possible LOOTING AND RIOTS in the near future.

Spar had said people should stock up on food for when the massive energy blackouts that may sweep across Europe, occur. They believe that food shortages will happen when the blackouts hit. To me is sounds as if Spar is expecting these blackouts to last NOT just a few hours, but for several day or perhaps weeks.

Spar has instructed their employees to sell food to people at discounted rates to ward off starvation and to move perishable goods. They have also instructed employees NOT to resist looters and rioters. Spar indicated that if any employee feels that they are in danger, they may abandon the store and will suffer no repercussions. Local managers have the discretion to close the markets as they see fit.

What the heck is going on? I thought Austria was a FIRST WORLD COUNTRY? Why is a grocery chain warning of massive power shortages?

The blackouts are not just a summer worry. It has been reported that small portable electric heaters are sold out in many parts of Europe. People are worried that they will not be able to heat their homes in the dead of winter due to a possible impending natural gas shortage. The problem will get worse as even a small electric heater consumes 2,000 watts of power. A small heater running for 1 hour consumes about what a household would use in a day if the house were heated with natural gas. Assuming that everyone ran a small heater for 10 hours per day that would increase the load on the national grid by 10 times. And where does the national electrical grid get its power?

Natural gas burning power plants.

And don’t forget, how will all the Greenies charge their electric cars to go and get groceries?

President Trump warned European leaders that they were going down this dangerous path by depending on Russia to supply their energy needs.  Perhaps more people should have taken the “Bad Orange Man” more seriously.

“Code Red!”, Biden screams

Today, after his vacation in Delaware, Crazy Uncle Joe toured New Jersey to look at the damage from Hurricane Ida,

He was screaming that the “Existential threat of climate change” is a “Code Red“, whatever the ‘F‘ that means. All the climate ‘scientists’ such as Chuckie Schumer, AOC, and the like, keep saying that the loss of life from Hurricane Ida was because the weather is more severe as a result of, wait for it, climate change.

Hurricane Ida was a Category 4 hurricane that became the SECOND MOST damaging hurricane to hit Louisiana. The most damaging was Katrina in 2005, 16 years ago. Hurricane Ida is tied for the strongest maximum winds at landfall with the Last Island Hurricane of, wait for it, 1856, 165 years ago!!!

Once again, riddle me this all you oh wise people of science.  WHY is it that the most destructive hurricane was 16 years ago and the windspeed was the same as a hurricane 165 years ago?

Shouldn’t Ida be the worst hurricane on record as the EXISTENTIAL THREAT of climate change is making the weather more severe according the the prognosticators of science?

Shouldn’t an 1856 hurricane have had LESS wind speed than a hurricane of today? We didn’t have automobiles, trucks, airplanes, and power plants pumping out EXISTENTIAL THREATENING carbon emissions 165 years ago,. There were fewer people producing less EXISTENTIAL THREATENING carbon emissions and a lot more forested land to sequester carbon. China and India were just backwards countries way back then and NOT the EXISTENTIAL THREATENING, carbon spewing industrial behemoths.  Weather should have been LESS severe using the ‘science‘ proclaimed by the intellectual class.

Almost all weather related events were WORSE in the past than they are today. 

Now ‘splain to me again how the Greenie New Dealers are 100% sure spending our tax dollars will solve this “EXISTENTIAL crisis“. 

Oh wait, maybe the weather will get worse because of ‘white supremacy‘ and ‘systemic racism’.  Or it’s Trump’s fault.

Death Of Rural Living

President Biden has declared his war on the oil and gas industries. Has he, anyone in his administration, or the supporters of this war on oil in Congress thought about the consequences of their actions on the way of life in America?

Rural living and the idea of freedom will have to END. The people in small towns and villages in Northern climates and in the state of Alaska will be forced to abandon their homes and way of life and to relocate to Southern states. Why? Many place that are not served by the electrical grid run on either individual or community generators. What powers these generators? Mostly diesel oil and some with with gasoline. Bye bye electricity. Many of these homes are heated with oil.

The “green new stealers” will tell these folks that they can switch over to renewable energy. In Northern climates that’s a sticky wicket. In winter time there is no sunshine at all in towns in Alaska, for months. 24 hours of darkness. Solar isn’t an option. You would need to invest over $1,000,000.00 per person in batteries to get through the periods of darkness. I assume every family of 4 has $4 MILLION in spare change.

Oh, they can use wind power, the “greenies” say. Well we saw what happened in Texas this winter when the windmills FROZE up during a cold snap and the whole power grid collapsed. And that was with only 25% of the power coming from wind turbines and cold that lasted only for a few days.  See how well they work after months of below zero temperatures.

No, with Uncle Joe’s war on oil, the most likely result will be Alaska will need to be abandoned and anyone who desires to live “off the grid” will also need to abandon their way of life and move to the Southern states.

Maybe the oil haters have thought about this.  President Biden and many in Congress are promoting high density housing to replace suburban living.  Perhaps there is a method to this seeming madness.

All the refugees from the North can sell weed to each other in their high density houses when Joe and company legalize that industry nationwide or they can move to China (and live in similar high density housing) and get those good paying John Kerry jobs, making solar panels.

Perhaps Uncle Joe will sell Alaska to the Chinese to pay for the high density housing, or we could trade the state for some solar panels.  The Chinese won’t care about “green new dealing” and they would be happy to have all the worthless oil and gas resources.

America, what a country.
