Those burning food plants

“A weird trend has emerged over the past few months that seems statistically unlikely. [Eighteen] factories, logistical centers, and food processing plants have caught fire or exploded, including two that had planes crash on them. More and more people have noticed and wondered about the trend on social media.”

Some are meat-packers, which might signal the climate crazies in the act, but most aren’t.

The coming famine

“Ukraine and Russia are two of the top grain-exporting countries in the world. Ukraine has been selling grain to the West since ancient times. With those supplies disrupted, a global food shortage impends, and many are predicting that populations in some vulnerable areas that can’t produce enough food for themselves will starve….

“Our farmers produce more food than anyone. But here, too, environmentalist fantasies are reducing food production. Countless acres of productive farm land are being taken over for wind and solar installations.”

Now here’s an idea, move the blog to Substack and (potentially) get paid by subscribers who want to pay to read my undying prose. Hmm. Not likely, as I haven’t drawn many steady readers here for free. But it’s an idea worth pursuing if I can come up with a new format and focus for them. Say, on Reiki, perhaps. Or after-death communication. Something I care enough about to write interesting articles. We shall see.

Why Trudeau caved

He has tossed the legislation that gave him emergency powers (goodbye tyranny) because the Canadian Bankers Association was up in arms about his use of the powers to freeze truckers’ bank accounts. He had punched banking’s integrity in the gut. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

I still bet his mother had something to do with it.

Mexifornia gasoline

Is now at an average cost of $4.70 a gallon, compared to the national average of $3.49. I predict that Cali(Mexi)fornia will be our bellweather and hit $10 a gallon before the rest of us have to pay that much. Probably by May.

UPDATE: “…$6.99 a gallon gasoline at a filling station on a major highway…” via Power Line

Mediacrats are failing Biden

“It’s shocking to have such lousy polling numbers despite positive media coverage, especially when compared to Trump. Biden has enjoyed almost double the amount of positive news coverage compared to the Trump administration, the Pew Research Center revealed.”

Shows how little influence the establishment media, otherwise known as the Mediacrats, have these days. People are finally wising up.

Ice slows windmills

“While ice can form over the entire span of the blade, much more ice is found near the tips. After one 30-hour icing event, we found ice as much as a foot thick. Despite the high wind, the ice-heavy turbines rotated much slower and even shut down. The turbines produced only 20% of their normal power over that period.”

Which means relying on windmills for electric heat in the winter is a fool’s errand. And Austin Energy relies for almost half its total electricity production on windmills. Ensuring customer outages when it’s cold.
