At least 30 people have died in Texas in the last few days as rolling blackouts, water shortages and lack of food take their toll in the midst of a biting winter.
For decades so-called “global warming deniers” (aka ‘sensible people’) have warned that the faddish mania for renewable energy would have real world consequences. Now those predictions are, sadly, proving all too accurate.
Clearly this is a tragedy for the Texans who have lost loved ones this week. But it should also be a wake-up call for the rest of us, as the governments continue their insane eco-crusade.
In only a few short decades, humanity has become astonishingly reliant on four key elements of our infrastructure: electricity, water on tap, fuel (petrol and diesel), and the supermarket supply chain.
All four of these have been knocked out in Texas in a perfect storm of events: the unusually cold winter has frozen wind turbines solid, causing electricity shortages. The government is rotating power through the grid leaving many with long power outages. The cold has also burst water pipes, leading to water shortages, and the icy roads have made fuel and food deliveries impossible, leading to further shortages. Texas is a wealthy state in a wealthy country. If it can happen there, it can happen anywhere.
Humans must have three things to survive: a source of heat, a source of water, and a source of food. We assume that all of these will be there at the flick of a switch, but as Texas is proving, this assumption can no longer be made.
These power outages are going to become a regular feature of life in the West as the crazed eco-fuckery starts to bite. Prepare now.
Take a look around your home and ask yourself: What will I do for warmth? What will I do for water? What will I do for food? Especially in winter. You need to be able to answer these three questions. Your very survival may soon depend upon it.
