Nationwide blackout a heartbeat away

 coal-fired plants are now being appreciated for what they are: truly meaningful power generation sources, available on demand, whatever the weather

millions of solar panels are blanketed in snow and ice and breathless, freezing weather is encouraging its 30,000 wind turbines to do absolutely nothing, at all. [Note to Ed: don’t forget about the constant supply of electricity from the grid that these things chew up heating their internal workings so they don’t freeze up solid!]

 Global warming hits the Fatherland.  

 Germany’s held up as the world’s wind and solar capital. But, at the moment, the ‘green’ stuff can’t be purchased, at any price.

a Nationwide blackout a heartbeat away, the German obsession with unreliable wind and solar is like a time bomb set to explode

All for the want of a lump of coal!

I thought this was going to be about the up and coming nation wide lockdown, now that Jacinda is intoxicated on the power and control!!

Anon, with Jacinda and the power crazed green loons at the helm, the Republik of A-oh-tea-rower is definitely proceeding on a similar path. As for the nationwide blackout, albeit in a differing form, that too will be a reality before the week's end.
