Official energy policy is Madness!!

Our energy infrastructure which took a century and huge investment to build (and is reliable and affordable) is being torn down by (what do you call a person who knows nothing) ignoramuses who have no idea how huge the job was to create it. And they have no idea how to make a new system to replace THAT ACTUALLY COULD WORK.  

I leave this to one of my favorite writers/analysts, Francis Menton, a retired NYC attorney at his blog Manhattan Contrarian.

A Comprehensive Roundup Of Official Energy Madness —:

Now comes along a guy named Joseph Toomey, who has published a relatively long piece at RealClearEnergy with the title “Energy Inflation Was By Design.” Toomey is identified as a “career management consultant” in the energy field, and author of a 2014 book with the title “An Unworthy Future,” that critiqued the Obama administration’s energy policies. Other than that, Toomey has not been a regular contributor to the energy policy debates. But he makes up for an extended absence with this comprehensive roundup.

At 35 pages in length, Toomey’s piece is a seemingly endless litany of one intentionally destructive policy after another. Even if you follow this issue regularly, as I do, you can’t help but be astounded when you see the full extent of the destruction organized into one piece. An energy infrastructure built up over a century and more that actually provides reliable and affordable energy to millions of people — a true miracle of human ingenuity! — is being systematically and intentionally attacked and wrecked by ignorant fools who have no idea how difficult the existing system was to create, and equally have no idea how to make something to replace it that might actually work.
