Climate change and power grids

President Joe Biden is working to get an infrastructure bill passed that will create several hundred thousand good paying jobs. The passage of the bill will be timely because the window to eliminate carbon as a destructive force in our atmosphere is closing. Republicans may argue that the price tag for a multi-trillion dollar infrastructure bill is too high, but the cost of not getting the job done is the end of civilization as we know it. The good news is that we are already making important gains in clean energy. California spent several seconds at 94.5 percent renewable energy usage in late April of 2021. Operating at nearly 100 percent clean energy even on a good day is a big deal. This is great news because we are still in the early stages of renewable energy development and power grid updating. Clean energy costs are declining and are cheaper than fossil fuels for power generation companies. The infrastructure bill could push the United States into the fast lane of clean energy and efficient reliable power grids. No more Texas power grid nightmares and likely cheaper prices for electricity. Tell your representatives to get on board with the Biden infrastructure plan.

  1. Windmills and solar are just a stopgap to buy us time until we can find someway to replace fossil fuels. So far we have some possibilities that scientists and engineers are working on, but we need more time. It’s a race to determine what our future will be.
