Anti-Fossil Fuel Biden Attempts to Rescue Texas by Sending Them Fossil Fuel, Generators

H/T  Western Journal.

Joe Pee Pads Biden is proving we need fossil fuels and not pie in the sky green energy.

Throughout his campaign and his short time in office, President Joe Biden has repeatedly spoken against fossil fuels. He has argued that green energy is the way of the future and the only way to save the climate.

Yet now that Texas is in crisis mode due, in part, to that green energy, Biden has realized that fossil fuels may not be so dispensable after all. Axios reported Wednesday that the Biden administration is turning to diesel in order to help the state of Texas.

“FEMA has supplied generators to Texas and is preparing to move diesel on to the state to ensure the continued availability of backup power,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

WFAA-TV reporter Jason Whitely also confirmed the news on Twitter.

The massive power outages that Texans are experiencing are due, in part, to the failure of green energy. The winter weather has caused some wind turbines to freeze over and be rendered useless, according to the Austin American-Statesmen.

The Statesmen reported that of the 25,100 megawatts of energy wind turbines can generate in Texas, 12,000 of those megawatts could not be generated due to the ice, as of Sunday morning.

Many proponents of natural gas have criticized green energy methods like wind turbines and solar panels for being unreliable. They say these methods rely on good weather conditions to be effective, which may or may not happen on any given day.

Obviously, a very still day or a very cloudy day could have negative effects on these forms of energy. The prospect of winter weather potentially halting green energy suppliers is yet another variable to consider.

On the Monday night edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson raised a heated argument against these forms of renewable energy.

He said that while Texas is known for producing oil and gas, their choice to abandon those energy forms in favor of green energy in many instances sealed their current fate.

“Running out of energy in Texas is like starving to death at the grocery store,” he said. “You can only do it on purpose, and Texas did.”

Green energy is not inherently bad. As an accessory to more reliable forms of energy like natural gas, it can be effective and even cut down on the amount of gas people use.

However, the problem arises when we become too reliant on green energy. Biden himself said on the campaign trail that he was going to “phase out fossil fuels.

As of last year, wind power supplied 23% of Texas’ energy, the Statesmen reported. It is the second-largest energy provider in the state, behind only natural gas.

Even as the second-largest energy provider, the failure of the wind turbines has left millions of Texans without power. Imagine the damage if green energy was the first-largest, or even the exclusive, mode of energy.

Even Biden himself knows deep down that we cannot completely “phase out” fossil fuels. If we did, what would he use to bail out states that have been negatively affected by his favorite unreliable forms of energy?

The left can grandstand all they want with their pipe dreams of 100 percent green energy in America.

When push comes to shove, however, it is those horrible, evil fossil fuels that are going to get the job done.

History of Generators

A little of the history of generators.

This small, easy to use power sources that are essential to our lives went through many stages to evolve into the portable generators that we know today. We introduce a brief history of generators and portable generators‘ timeline.

Mid 1700s

Watt Steam Engine

The story of generators that we know today, dates back to mid-1700s. When a Scottish instrument maker, James Watt, became interested in the technology of steam engines. He noticed that the engine design of the Newcomen 1712 steam engine, wasted a huge amount of energy, due to its contemporary repeated cooling and reheating of cylinders during operation. James Watt became a mechanical engineer, a chemist, and the inventor of the Watt steam engine in 1781.

He updated the contemporary design of generators to avoid the waste of energy, and effectively improving the power and efficiency of the generator. In fact, his work went far beyond pumping water. He also updated his engine to produce rotary motions. Furthermore, he contributed in the development of the unit Watt, named after him. In addition to the development of the concept of Horsepower (HP). After facing great financial difficulties while attempting to commercialize his inventions. James Watt eventually became highly successful and a great wealthy man. His work on improving the steam engine converted it into the mechanical workhorse of the Industrial Revolution.

Early 1800s

Faraday Disk

By early 1800s, an English scientist, Michael Faraday, established the basics of electromagnetic field physics. It shaped the technology of electric motors. He introduced the Faraday disk in 1831, which was the first electromagnetic generator. Michael Faraday was one of the most influential scientists in history. Due to his efforts, electricity became available for use in different technologies of today. As a chemist, he also discovered Benzene and the system of Oxidation and some popular terminologies such as Ion.

Scientists would eventually pick up from where Faraday left off. Just a year later, an instrument maker in France, Hippolyte Pixii, applied the principles of Faraday and introduced the first Magneto electric generator.

Mid 1800s

By mid-1800s, small engines evolved to run on gasoline and kerosene in Western Europe. They were much smaller and more efficient. And they were made commercially available with the help of Zenobe Gramme. Who increased the power of the Dynamo generator to the point that it produced enough power for commercial applications.

Edisson generators at the Pearl Street Station

By 1870s, AC and DC generators were both used. Such as, in the use of AC generators to power outdoor arc lighting system known as the Jablochkoff Candle. However, it was not until the late 1870s when Thomas Edison successfully introduced a new electric lighting system, by using DC generators. Edison’s intention was to power both the lighting systems, as well as to power the electric motors. At the time, DC power was the only option as there was no effective AC motor available. With his new concept, Edison was successful in installing DC generators at the Pearl Street station in New York City, in 1882. Which is one of the earliest commercial power generating installations. However, there was still a lack of a suitable AC motor.

In 1887, a Serbian immigrant to the United States, Nikola Tesla, could eventually improve the AC generator, as well as the practical AC motor. The Tesla motor was designed to peak the power supply of the motor. Tesla’s system made it easy for companies to create massive power plants, such as the Niagara Falls hydroelectric plant, built in the 1890s.

1900s

History of generators timeline

By early 1900s, Siemens, Westinghouse, Kohler, General Electric, and other popular companies were designing and manufacturing generators.

Generators and motors have many things in common due to the relation between electrical energy and mechanical energy. Which is done either way by an electric motor. Motors can be mechanically driven to generate electricity. Generating electricity happens through the generator by converting motive power into electrical power for external use. Sources of mechanical energy include water turbines, steam turbines, and gas turbines.

A generator is the combination of an electrical generator and an engine to form a single unit of power supply. The generator unit includes a fuel supply, a speed governor, a voltage regulator, a lubrication system, and cooling and exhaust systems. They come in a variety of styles and models. They may run on gas, natural gas, propane, and they even come as a hybrid dual-fuel power. Their sizes range from very small that can supply a few hundreds of watts and are portable, to large turbine plants.

Many generators produce enough power to keep many vital life and business aspects running. Such as, powering for hospitals, power for homes, farms, and business areas, as well as provide power for rural places. In addition to providing a complete whole house power solution for different emergency situations.
