Green energy - unreliable? Uh, ya . . .

Even though they're finally kinda sorta past the worst of it now, this was still a record-breaking event for several reasons, and politics and STUPID POLITICIANS were one of the biggest reasons. 

You can defend those assholes if you want to but I have no intention of doing any such thing.  They were wrong but they'll never admit they were wrong; maybe they didn't plan this - - no one EVER plans a disaster but these things happen all the time.  Mankind should know all of this by now.  But we just never seem to learn.

We all need to work together to stop the idiots and morons like AOC & company from promoting crappy ideas like this,  And believe me, no one believes the world will end in 12 years if we don't listen to her edicts.  Didn't we hear something VERY SIMILAR a few years back from Al Gore about the end of the world yada yada??

People/fake politicians who  try to SCARE the general population into doing something they know they shouldn't do are often lying through their friggin' teeth.
