Alex Jones recently provided a Department of Energy (PDF) Order No. 202-21-1. The article was recently “debunked” by fake news fact checkers Snoops. Looks like snoops once again, proves to be a propaganda website.
An Emergency Order from the Biden administration’s Department of Energy shows Texas energy grid operator ERCOT was instructed to stay within green energy standards by purchasing energy from outside the state at a higher cost, throttling power output throughout the state ahead of a catastrophic polar vortex.
Going into effect Sunday, Feb. 14, Emergency Order 202-21-1 shows the Energy Dept. was aware of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s statewide disaster declaration and that ERCOT was readying gas utilities in preparation for a demand surge.
The EO shows the Biden administration basically ordered ERCOT to throttle its energy output by forcing it to comply with environmental green energy standards, while knowing full well Texans could freeze to death in their homes with zero electricity as temperatures plunged into the single digits.
The order shows Acting Energy Secretary David Huizenga did not waive environmental restrictions to allow for maximum energy output, instead ordering ERCOT to utilize all resources in order to stay within acceptable emissions standards – including purchasing energy from outside the state.
“ERCOT anticipates that this Order may result in exceedance of emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide, mercury, and carbon monoxide emissions, as well as wastewater release limits,” the order states. “To minimize adverse environmental impacts, this Order limits operation of dispatched units to the times and within the parameters determined by ERCOT for reliability purposes.”
Moreover, the order instructed an “incremental amount of restricted capacity” to be sold to ERCOT at “a price no lower than $1,500/MWh,” an increase of over 6,000 percent over February 2020 prices of $18.20.
On Wednesday, the Dallas Business Journal reported, “Electricity on the Texas grid has averaged about $1,137.33 per megawatt hour so far in February, up from $18.20 per megawatt hour in February 2020, according to data from the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas. That’s a jump of more than 6,000 percent.”
This article comes from Info Wars, and I know many may be like, “Oh Alex Jones”. Stop, just stop for one second. You may remember it was Alex Jones that first questioned Donald Trump as a possible pawn to have Hillary Clinton win early on in the Iowa primary. Soon it was clear Trump was on team America, and it was Alex Jones who in the beginning supported Donald Trump. Did Alex Jones make some mistakes, like Sandy Hook, and other hype media. Yes, but 90% of what he says, is not hype and truth. You may also remember it was Alex Jones who was the first censored, and no one said a word. They destroyed his top media company online, because they did not like his message.
