Two Podcasts: Same Rant About the Need of Reliable Energy

Hi All,

I hope you’re getting outside today to enjoy the balmy 38! degree weather. If you’re out and about or walking the dog, here are two podcasts I appeared on yesterday discussing how Minnesota dodged a bullet during the cold snap, and we were fortunate we didn’t run out of natural gas. That being said, wind energy was basically no help. Why would we build energy sources we can’t depend on?

In The Tank

Donny Kendal and Isaac Orr, Policy Fellow at the Center of the American Experiment bring you episode #176 of the In The Tank Podcast. Today’s episode features work from the Center of the American Experiment, the Mackinac Center, the Pacific Research Institute, and the Pacific Legal Foundation. We talk about the weather, how people love Medicare for all, until they learn more about it, and Michigan has some CRAZY civil asset forfeiture laws.

Plugged In

I join the good folks at the Institute for Energy Research to talk about the Polar Vortex limiting natural gas supplies in Xcel Energy’s service territory and explain the wind simply did not blow hard enough on Wednesday to make a significant dent in the need for beautiful, clean coal, nuclear, and natural gas-fired electricity.
