Merrill Matthews of the Institute for Policy Innovation predicts that Europe’s green-based energy woes is bad news for the Biden administration and Democrats. He points out they are readying their $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill which includes a radical plan to move the U.S. to renewable energy.
“And it highlights the problem with renewables, especially wind and solar," Matthews tells American Family News. "The wind doesn't always blow and the sun doesn't always shine."
That simple effect is, in fact, what has happened: “Energy prices in Europe hit records after wind stops blowing,” reads the headline of a Wall Street Journal story dated Sept. 13.
What happened next? Gas and coal-fired plants were needed to help, the Journal reported.
As part of its anti-fossil fuel agenda, the Biden administration recently approved the largest offshore wind farm in the United States, located near Massachusetts, which it views as a model for other developments across the nation.
"Hundreds of thousands of homes would be dependent upon electricity from that wind farm if they get it up and running,” Matthews counters, “and sometimes the wind doesn't blow and that electricity falls short."
