PUTIN DOESN’T NUKE
It wasn’t too long ago that our country not only used all its own oil to perform the function of the worlds factory, it had plenty left over to export to the rest of the planet ( even after doing everything in our power to burn up as much as possible fighting for global hegemony ). Now, granted, we DID burn up all the easy shallow stuff, and have lost over half our peak production, but we never had to lose our industrial economy other than from two key factors. The bankers are greedy arseholes and too many people were allowed to bump uglies at above replacement levels. If the Prez, any of them, had grown a pair of balls and had the military assassinate all the bankers, then used any number of unConstitutional laws to force population control, we would all still be living in Leave It To Beaver economy. But, since I wasn’t put in charge, only bad things have happened. One of them is the current danger to our power grid. Not from an EMP or some such fanciful scenario ( not that it isn’t possible, just that while we wistfully gaze out towards possible enemies, we overlook the far greater danger from our own stupidity ), but from our imports being cut off. You know, like suddenly there was no rice or commie carbine ammunition.
Our country hit Peak Plutonium long ago. We used to extract 16k tons and are now down to 2k. The remainder is from decommissioned Russian nuclear weapons ( you don’t need the same mass as the weapon material is condensed, so it isn’t like they have thousands of tons worth ). And while you might think it would be nice and swell ( I know I do ) to get rid of all our nuclear power plants, they do provide 20% of our electricity, so it ain’t gonna happen. So, what happens to our nuke plants when we piss off Putin over the Ukraine? Do we still get enough fuel? But wait! There is other details to consider. Natural gas also supplies a good portion of our electricity. But you’ve heard of the Fracking bubble, yes? While it is the oil fracking rigs shutting down right now, next year was projected to be the drastic drop off of the rig count of BOTH oil and gas, anyway. At the same time ( I would imagine it is being planned this way over at the Kremlin ) the natural gas supply contracts, our nuke fuel supply from Russia dries up. We won’t lose half of our electrical generating capacity right then and there, but I’d imagine we lose enough that the whole grid is effected by brown and black outs and possibly even bankruptcies and job loses. All without enemy attack. Just a result of our own incompetence and the end of THAT road the can was being kicked down. I’m already thinking about how to publish less than exclusively online. And you should buy your panels now.
