Just as the national Democrat Party is chasing the imaginary pot of gold at the end of the green energy rainbow, so too are Oregon’s Democrats, and they are all-in on wind, solar, and hydroelectric power as the ONLY sources powering Oregon’s electric grid. Here is an excerpt from an Oregon Public Broadcasting report about the Democrats’ plan:

Some Oregonians actually understand that science and are aghast that Oregon Democrats are hell-bent on committing “green energy suicide” by dooming the state to dozens of future brownouts ala California. One of them is meteorologist Chuck Wiese. He sent the below blistering email to his long-time friend Lars Larson, a nationally-syndicated radio talk host, and has graciously consented to having it posted to a wider audience here.

Never mind that nuclear power would be a great substitute for solar, wind and natural gas, but the environmental nut jobs won’t have any of this either and so far are able to convince the incompetent politicians like Sen. Michael Dembrow (D) and Rep. Karin Powers (D) that these power sources are dangerous and bad for the environment. This is also untrue.

Here is a now-defunct link to Oregon’s 2020 electric energy use and production, “State of Oregon Energy Risk Profile.” Before it was taken down (to avoid embarrassing Democrat legislators?), this information was available for perusal:

SOURCE                  ENERGY USED                RATED CAPACITY

Coal                            2.6 TWh                               .6 GW

Hydro                        30.3 TWh                             8.4 GW

Natural Gas
