Every area of the U.S. could be in danger of experiencing power outages this summer amid a push to convert to renewable energy sources while taking traditional sources of power offline.
“I think the entire country is incredibly vulnerable, because the entire country is facing a huge energy shortage and I don’t think there is any place that is truly safe,” Daniel Turner, founder and executive director at Power the Future, told Fox News.
The article goes on to state the following:
At issue are blackouts that could become widespread across the country this summer as grid operators struggle to meet the increased demand, a problem that has plagued some states for years but now could threaten much of the country.
Explaining which states are under the greatest threat, Turner said, “The areas of the country I’d be most concerned about are the ones that already have inherent weaknesses. Texas, California, New Mexico, New York, all of New England. These are areas whose policies and political decisions have weakened their electric grid.”
The report states that renewable sources of energy such as wind and solar are a problem because they are dependent on variables outside human control, due to a lack of consistent wind or sunshine. Batteries could help store excess energy production for later use, but that technology not fully developed, and it’s expensive.
This will all lead to grid operators being forced to make tough decisions as demand picks up, and Turner warns people from poor and minority neighborhoods will be impacted the worst from power outages.
“Just watch and see what neighborhoods get turned off,” Turner predicted. “Watch and see what happens in neighborhoods in California, New Mexico, and New York that are turned off the grid. That will tell you what our politicians think about their constituents and will tell you what effect the green agenda has on our country.”
Turner also argued that the move to green energy is not only a huge mistake but a complete failure.
“The notion that they have baptized themselves as green is a joke. They use more fossil fuels in the production, installation, and then the redundancies of wind and solar than if they just burn those fossil fuels directly to make electricity. So the idea that they’re green is just purely a lie,” Turner said.
“It just amazes me that we look at this, we look at all the data, and politicians are still hell-bent on pushing renewable energy when it’s proven to be nothing but a failure,” he added.
Pinned to the top of Turner’s Twitter account is a video posted in 2018 which drives home the message in a powerful way.
Sharing a video of a boarded-up downtown district, he writes, “10 years ago this was a thriving downtown. Then came along the purely political #waroncoal funded by billionaire ideologues. They’ve ruined this town and many others. And they don’t care. #ruralamerica #energyworkers.”

In a Twitter post on Sunday, Turner mocked the left’s “climate change” efforts.
“My county just implemented a 5 cent plastic bag fee saying it will reduce waste and raise money for climate change. This and banning plastic straws will make the difference. Now we’re gonna survive,” he tweeted.
