Yep! From Michael Shellenberger’s Substack post today: Climate Alarmism Behind Christmas Energy Shortages
“PJM is asking consumers to reduce their use of electricity, if health permits, between the hours of 4 a.m. on December 24, 2022 and 10 a.m. on December 25, 2022,” it wrote in a statement.
Say goodbye to your Christmas lights.
In other words, the PJM’s 65 million Americans who live in between Illinois and New Jersey should “take simple electricity conservation steps such as… Turning off non-essential electric lights.”
Right! Who wants to turn on their Christmas lights on Christmas Eve? Let’s hold that off until maybe April.
As Mr. Shellenberger points out, “the nonprofit North American Reliability Corporation (NERC) warned in November that this would happen. “Limited natural gas infrastructure can impact winter reliability,” it wrote. It pointed to the closure of coal and nuclear power plants as threatening shortages.”
