(Steve Moore) – We at CTUP were right… and we were wrong.
We have warned for many months that the climate change fanatics that now run our government in Washington and many state capitals would soon be rationing energy and even adjusting your home and business thermostats to reduce electric power usage.
We reported that it is happening in Europe. We just thought that these Stalinist policies wouldn’t arrive on these shores for a few years down the road.
Well, they’re here now. This isn’t a fire drill.
It has happened in Colorado. Yes, the government and public utilities are using “smart thermostats” – through a “voluntary” program that seduced homeowners with promises of rebates on their utility bills – that can regulate the temperature of your home. In the heat wave, they are turning the temperature to 78 degrees. In the winter, who knows? 65?
Get your Jimmy Carter cardigan sweaters and a down blanket ready.
It would be one thing if there were a genuine energy shortage or a Hurricane Katrina-type natural disaster that knocked out our energy grid, which might require some kind of rationing.
But there is NO energy shortage. We have hundreds of years of coal, gas, and oil. Nuclear power and hydropower are infinite sources of energy. This is ALL due to the sheer idiocy of green energy requirements.
We have said it before these people are dangerous religious zealots – on a mission from God to save the planet.
The first step in keeping your home heated and the lights on is to get a generator not hooked up to the power grids that they now control. We’re deadly serious.
Meanwhile, In California…
This is a real alert sent out by a Sacramento electric utility to a HOTLINE reader. They are recommending setting the thermostat to a comfortable EIGHTY DEGREES… “or higher.”
Does anybody think it’s set to 80+ at Governor Newsom’s house? And how long will this program be voluntary?
