Blackouts This Summer: 1 Billion At Risk

by | May 25, 2022 | Headline News | 19 comments

The ruling classes of the globe are continuing to warn that the power grids all across the globe will be stretched thin this coming summer. There will not be electricity worldwide to meet the soaring demand for more energy, which is threatening more than one billion people with rolling blackouts.

Power grids are already being stretched thin by fuel shortages, droughts and heatwaves, commodity disruptions, soaring prices due to the war in Ukraine, and the failed green energy transition where grid operators retired too many fossil fuel generation plants. Combine this all together, and a perfect storm of blackouts threatens much of the Northern Hemisphere, according to a report by ZeroHedge.

This power crisis, which is going to be affecting much of the world’s top economies, could be less than a month away when summer begins on June 21. Regions that concerned Bloomberg are Asia, Europe, and the US, where there’s not enough power to go around when cooling demand is set to surge as households crank up their air conditions to escape the sweltering heat.

Asia’s heatwave has caused hours-long daily blackouts, putting more than 1 billion people at risk across Pakistan, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and India, with little relief in sight. Six Texas power plants failed earlier this month as the summer heat just began to arrive, offering a preview of what’s to come. At least a dozen US states from California to the Great Lakes are at risk of electricity outages this summer. Power supplies will be tight in China and Japan. South Africa is poised for a record year of power cuts. And Europe is in a precarious position that’s held up by Russia — if Moscow cuts off natural gas to the region, that could trigger rolling outages in some countries. –Bloomberg

Power Grids “Straining” As Massive Heatwave Strikes The West

The warnings of blackouts continue as people begin to get ready for their summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Henning Gloystein, an analyst at Eurasia Group, warns if major blackouts spread across the world this summer, “that could trigger some form of humanitarian crisis in terms of food and energy shortages on a scale not seen in decades.”

Since we have already been experiencing food shortages, it is hard to say what we could experience next.

Alex Whitworth, an analyst with Wood Mackenzie Ltd, points out that as grids transition to green energy, the lack of battery storage when the sun doesn’t shine or the wind doesn’t blow will create instabilities and more stress on grids at a time fossil fuel plants are being retired at a rapid clip. “You’ll be facing a supply scare every time there’s clouds or storms or a wind drought for a week,” Whitworth said. “We really expect these problems to get worse in the next five years.”

      “If grids become stressed and break down this summer, it would be an ominous sign for things to come this winter.”

      Looking at peak loads in the USA from 1990-2016, the Winter peak is in the 80-90% range of the Summer peak.

      In the USA, we heat with other fuels than just electricity and there are ways to operate these systems without grid electricity.

        recent events suggest that more lng might be sent to europe

        do you think that lands in western ukraine, with large majorities of hungarians, poles, etc, might soon be transferred to hungary, poland, etc?

        Here in the tropics many of us use convection-currents to cool the house. Mother Nature will provide the means of moving hot air out of the house & cooler air into the house if you open the correct windows & doors. Check out a physics explanation for “convection currents”.

        Folks in the arid southwest USA often use swamp coolers that take advantage of the phase change of water via evaporation. This remarkable reduction in heat of the air that will be introduced into the house is very effective.

        There are ways of avoiding feeding the utility beast for most of us.

      If things get even worse for
      the 2022 – 2023 Winter
      season – We can always just
      burn the globalists in order
      to stay warm. What can I
      tell you ? I’m always thinking
      ahead.

      We all know the solution
      to all of this will of course
      be to eat more bugs.

      What did people do before air conditioning? All the stuff going on right now is not by coincidence. Food shortages, fuel shortages, runaway inflation etc…..it’s all by design. Plan accordingly

      Stay quiet Be smart

      Widespread and long lasting blackouts aren’t necessarily a bad thing.

      A return to a more pastoral lifestyle, like in the 12th century, might be a pleasant change form the hustle and bustle of our modern life.

      People relaxing and having a fulfilling life by taking care of sheep in the fields, all that sort of stuff.

      Maybe.

      Meh who cares. More important to buy more toys and shit we don’t need. I need a 40K razor so I can be cool! Just got my 70K truck and need sporty wheels for it. Damm now I need a trailer 40K and remodel the house. Life is good for a moron with money/credit! I’m so cool I better get back in the fridge before I thaw out! 😀

      Hey, great idea, let’s mandate electric vehicles!

        Biden will most certainly think it is a wonderful step in transforming our energy structure, the same way he talks of high gas prices.

        The level of human destruction, of destroyed lives and lives never lived, is of no concern to the Left, Marxists look at the hive instead of the fate of individual bees as being what is important.

      I’m just glad my firearms don’t need electricity.
