Not enough juice...

In New Hampshire, there's not enough traditional capacity to meet this winter's demand for electricity. Utilities are turning to backup turbines that run on expensive jet fuel to keep the lights on...

This is the same New Hampshire where eco-fascist lawmakers are push, push, pushing to prematurely shutdown more cost efficient coal plants.

I've been saying from the start that the wholesale elimination of coal power plants without sufficient replacement capacity would have a huge down-side.

Looks to me like we're getting pretty close to fulfilling my prediction. And don't expect future electricity shortages to be confined to New Hampshire.

Here's another article spelling out the danger of over-dependence on natural gas.
