Regulators overseeing the nation’s electricity supply are warning this summer will bring crippling blackouts across much of the country.  

The warning of deadly power shortages comes after years of Green New Deal-style policies have shut down reliable power suppliers and tried to replace it with inefficient and expensive “green energy” – resulting in life-threatening shortages.

“In its annual summer assessment released this week, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation noted that the Upper Midwest is facing a capacity shortfall leading to a ‘high risk of energy emergencies.’ The entire Western U.S. also could face a power outage emergency in the event of spikes in energy use,” CBS News reports.

“We’ve been doing this for close to 30 years. This is probably one of the grimmest pictures we’ve painted in a while,” John Moura, NERC’s director of reliability assessment and performance analysis, told CBS MoneyWatch.

One culprit is that instead of building new power plants, existing power generation is being retired under “green” policies.

“Moura said that while more capacity was being added to the grid, largely in the form of wind and solar, older fossil fuel plants were being retired faster than they could be replaced,” CBS News reports.

“The most affected parts of the country might be the Midwest, NERC warned. In a large swath of the grid stretching from Illinois to Minnesota, the summer’s power demands are projected to exceed the grid’s capacity. That’s because this area of the grid — known as the Midcontinent Independent System Operator, or MISO — has lost about 2% of its generation capacity since last year as plants have retired,” CBS News admits.

Republicans are demanding Biden head off the deadly effects of environmentalism.

“Blackouts are life threatening and extremely dangerous. President Biden, the Department of Energy, and FERC must take these threats and their responsibility to ensure reliable and affordable energy seriously. We are demanding that the administration provide specific plans for how it will prevent potential electricity emergencies this summer,” said Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA,) the top Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

“People are suffering enough from record high and unaffordable costs created by President Biden’s energy crisis. They deserve and need every assurance their lights and air conditioning will come on this summer to keep themselves and their families safe,” said McMorris Rodgers.
