Said it before but, let’s revisit the wind scam again from the blog Watts Up With That?, If Solar And Wind Are So Cheap, Why Are They Making Electricity So Expensive?
Hirth predicted that the economic value of wind would decline 40% once it reached 30% of electricity, and that the value of solar would drop by 50% when it reached 15% of electricity.EP
In 2017, the share of electricity coming from wind and solar was 53 percent in Denmark, 26 percent in Germany, and 23 percent in California. Denmark and Germany have the first and second most expensive electricity in Europe.
By reporting on the declining costs of solar panels and wind turbines but not on how they increase electricity prices, journalists are — intentionally or unintentionally — misleading policymakers and the public about those two technologies.
The Los Angeles Times last year reported that California’s electricity prices were rising, but failed to connect the price rise to renewables, provoking a sharp rebuttal from UC Berkeley economist James Bushnell.
Recall what the Recucklican Majority passed during lame duck 2016?
Alas! The DetNews highlights just how reprehensible the Bolshevist union of an offspring of the insurance lobby (Whitmer), and radical lesbian Nessel ✡️, has unfolded for Michiganians.
But new Gov. Gretchen Whitmer promised on the campaign trail to shut down Line 5, and she’s allowing that ill-considered vow to get in the way of sound policy.
Whitmer teamed with Attorney General Dana Nessel to block the work by declaring the tunnel unconstitutional.
Nessel’s opinion, issued last week, is that the law approving the deal violates the state constitution because its title doesn’t reflect what’s actually in the bill. That semantical objection seems an iffy legal stance, considering that so many laws in Michigan bear lofty titles that have little connection to their contents.
*Think* the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: it did the exact opposite.
But it was enough for Whitmer, who seized the ruling to order preparations for the tunnel work to cease.
This will surely end up in court. The Republican-controlled Legislature won’t stand by while the new Democratic administration usurps its lawmaking authority, nor should it.

SML Shirkey, Speaker Chatfield, I do believe you have your marching orders.
Ps. when it comes to Line 5 transporting daily 540,000 barrels of light crude oil and synthetic petroleum, 65% of the propane used in the Upper Peninsula, and 55% used statewide, methinks, someone takes the matter at hand a wee too nonchalantly.
Jeez, the Democratic Party is going down faster than Kamala did on Willie Brown.
Washington — The U.S. Senate’s vote to advance the ambitious Green New Deal failed as expected Tuesday, with most Democrats voting “present” in protest of what they’ve called a “sham” vote.
Michigan Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, both Democrats, were among 43 senators voting present on the resolution, while 57 [Republicans] voted no.
Neither Stabenow nor Peters have publicly endorsed the Green New Deal but both roundly criticized their Republican counterparts for supposedly failing to take climate change seriously or even acknowledge it’s man-made.
Rest of Michigan’s two midwits drool here
Now, let the comedy ensue…
Senate Amendment 29 to SB-1 (Keystone XL Pipeline Bill):
“To express the sense of the Senate that climate change is real and not a hoax. “
And these are the people we were counting on to stop the Obama Agenda?
I can only surmise that they didn’t read the bill.
