I guess I'll just stick to my plan. Never let my tank go below 3/4 tank without topping it off. With a full tank of diesel I can stretch about 8 weeks if we take the ole lady's car everywhere and I just drive my truck to work and home at about 15 miles round trip a day.

Power-grid operators across the US warn that power-generating capacity struggles to keep up with demand, a worrying sign ahead of summer where heatwaves could lead to rolling blackouts.

The Midcontinent Independent System Operator, or MISO, operating in 15 states across the US Central region, said last month that capacity shortages this summer due to soaring summer demand might result in outages. Last Friday, California Independent System Operator, or California ISO, outlined energy shortfalls this summer because of heat and wildfires. Texas over the weekend saw triple-digit temperatures in some portions of the state, though grid stability was maintained despite several power plants being offline for maintenance.

WSJ explains grid instability and increased risk of power shortages this summer comes as fossil fuel power plants are "being retired more quickly than they can be replaced by renewable energy and battery storage." Power grids are racing to retire conventional power plants fueled by natural gas, coal, and diesel to green forms of energy, such as solar power and wind. There's also the retirement of aging nuclear power plants.

That’s not like a “new” thing.

Renewables will not be able to fully replace aging power generation currently.

Just not a thing possible. The retirement rate of facilities is far too high. But the political atmosphere for building anything else isn’t there.


We would require some true acts of Congress. Not just a presidential change, to get out of this.

Many refineries delayed maintenance during covid retardation and its associated lack of demand.  This is the season refineries typically bring units down for maintenance; Many plants that deferred maintenance are doing it now along with ones that would have normally scheduled it at this time.  There is always less being produced this time of year, but this year produciton is especially low.

It is already happening as we all know.  I spend most all day today setting behind a computer updating prices.  Some of the things we do not order that often or order in bulk, but inventory is getting low and prices need updated.  Various packaging supplies, (foam & food safe plastic).  Cases of foam trays that I purchased the middle of last year were $31.00 a case.  This years price (so far) $78.00.  But not to worry, The government tells me that the 8% inflation I see is transitory.  They are of course correct, transitory as in a small speed bump on the expressway to far higher inflation.

Calculated using the standard inflation rate:

$ 78- $31 / $31 x 100 = 151.61%.  The inflation rate of the above packaging items is a whopping 151.61%.  151.61% / 8% = 18.95    The rate of inflation I am seeing in some common food safe packaging supplies is about 18.95 TIMES as much as the government claims inflation is.

As bad as this is, we in America are so much better off then a large portion of the rest of the world.  We will have a tremendous recession, and pay a far higher percentage of our income for food and true necessities.  Many people in poor foreign countries will die of starvation over the next two years.

We can stop fascism. We are at a point where we can — this is a crossroads, it’s an existential crossroads, and we are people who can help determine which way humanity goes. What a great gift! What a tremendous opportunity, we’re just so lucky. We have to use it with every ounce of intelligence and courage and wherewithal we have, because you’re absolutely right — this is it. This is it.

And I just think that COVID is God’s gift to the Left. [Laughs]. That’s a terrible thing to say. I mean I think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us, but it has ripped the Band-aid off who he [Trump] is and what he stands for, and what is being done to average people and working people in this country. We can see it now. People who couldn’t see it before, they see it now. And we have a chance to harness that anger and make a difference. So I just, I feel so blessed to be alive right now.
