Daily Caller Piece: Biden Is Following Germany’s Failed Energy Policy Into The Dark
It has become a great rule of thumb to watch what is happening in Germany if you want to understand what will be happening in America in a few years where energy policy is concerned. The Biden energy policies are essentially carbon copies of actions the German government has already taken, and if Joe Biden or any other Democrat (we see you, Gavin Newsom) wins the presidency in 2024, America’s German-copying path to near-zero energy security will be essentially set in stone.
Because of this reality, all Americans should be greatly troubled by a story published Tuesday at Euractiv.com headlined, “EV chargers, heat pumps may be curtailed in Germany as of 2024.” With its power grid running dangerously bare of reliable baseload generation provided by coal, natural gas or nuclear power amid its efforts to force adoption of grid-draining electric vehicles and heat pumps onto the population, Germany’s government faces a choice. It can either 1) mount a national effort to rapidly rebuild baseload on the grid, or 2) invoke authoritarian measures exerting government control over the little peoples’ usage of EVs and their fancy new noisy and inefficient heat pumps.
No doubt many readers can easily guess which action government officials have chosen to pursue. This is Germany we’re talking about here, after all. (RELATED: SUZANNE DOWNING: Greenhouse Graft Fund And The Revolving-Door Biden Parasites Who Feed On It)
