Democrats for Nuclear Power???

We’ve said it since we opened our doors. Wind and solar are fringe energy sources that will never be scalable to provide reliable energy for a nation with a $26 trillion economy.

Guess what? More and more Blue State leaders are starting to come to their senses on this.

In New York, the state has canceled power contracts for three offshore wind projects that had been projected to fulfill almost half of New York’s 2035 power needs. Two other projects have been paused. Costs for building offshore wind projects have risen 60 percent between 2021 and 2024.

Governor Kathy Hochul still pays lip service to wind power, but she is starting to pivot. She raised the possibility of building small, new nuclear reactors at a private meeting with environmentalists.

Of course, this is the same state that closed its big Indian Point nuclear plant in 2021 to environmentalist fanfare.  Oops.

But Hochul is not alone.

“Nuclear power is our single largest source of carbon-free electricity,” gushed U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm as she joined Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in announcing a $1.5 billion loan from the Biden administration to re-open the shuttered Palisades nuclear power plant.

The reason? Michigan regulators just authorized a 6.4 percent increase in electric rates as the state’s effective ban on natural gas power plants raises costs across the board.

You heard it first here: Democrats are starting to take out a nuclear insurance policy just in case the smoke and mirrors policies of their alternative energy allies threaten a consumer revolt over higher prices.

Nukes are a good investment, but we also need oil, gas, and coal.
