Steve Bannon:

MTG sitting there, she's going to bring up articles of impeachment on him. She said this is outrageous, but she also talks about this fantasy of solar and wind. As good as they may be in concept, in the actual practicality of trying to run a major industrial economy and you've seen this out in California.

Is MTG correct? Is one of the reasons we got a problem here is that Biden even in all this whether it's the infrastructure bill or the Build Back better, all this money is going to kind of early-stage venture capital to support or bail out their buddies in wind and solar and is California an object lesson on how that's a fool's errand Dave Walsh?

Dave Walsh:

California, Colorado 40% renewables in their mix and Texas 27% wind, the next power mix. California 37% solar, southern Cal is perfect object lesson. Solar concentration diminishes to zero at about 4:00 pm. That's exactly when the California spike of demand kicks into high gear. Folks get home off the freeways, appliances on, air conditioning on, full load and therefore, you need a 24 hour a day source of electricity.

They had nuclear. They had Vallecitos, they had the SONGS (San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station) plant shut down 3000 megawatts, introduced some gas to replace those, but largely the importation of Nevada and Arizona, New Mexico solar which is an 8 hour a day phenomenon out there and unpredictable that ends at 4:00 pm.

So, there they've got a massive shortage because of the lack of continuous duty dispatchable electricity which is visiting now Colorado has visited Texas regularly because again the basis of the continuous duty plants is simply not there.

Texas has only 8.6% reserve margins. California - 25% within the state, because of lack of willingness to build base load continuous duty power plants, deeming that because they're dirty we don't want them. Coal, nuclear off the table in California for 25 years and now even gas has been under attack, permits to build gas plants the last four years.

So, you've got this massive quantity of renewables that are massively intermittent. They don't work, they don't work and there's no technology on the rise to take care of the intermittency of them. The fact that solar is 19% of the time thing and wind to 38% of the time thing.

Steve Bannon:

This is what I don’t understand is why no one says, Boris Johnson when he's leaving being the Tories, and you're the first guy to talk about it, their bills are going to go up I think by factor of four or five by next Spring.

First time it was it was on this show when you brought it out. He sat in front of the people when he's leaving and calling himself Cincinnatus, like hey I'm going back to the plow but I'm always available. He said by 2035, 50% of total energy production in the United Kingdom, Dave Walsh, 50% will be by wind. Is that a fantasy, yes, or no?

Dave Walsh:

It's a fantasy and its complete disaster because again it's that that actually enhances the necessity of gas to back that up in the periods of time it's intermittent and when it's not there at all. All that you've got to back that up is more gas needed, but secondly, think about it you've got a power source in a small geographic area where the wind is prevalent across England most of the same times only available 37% of the time.

What about the reciprocal? What about the 63% of the time that it's not there for you. So, you need the whole base system to exist with that on top of it for that to work at all, at tremendous cost to the English ratepayers. It makes no sense at all. It's technically not feasible. Storage storage globally is about 1 1/2 percent of total renewables output, battery storage, because it's so expensive and it consumes so much land. So, the battery storage isn't even on the radar screen as a fungible backup for this stuff. The only thing that is open cycle gas turbines and you need a lot of it.

Steve Bannon:

You got blackouts now up in Silicon Valley. You've got Newsom talking everyday got unplug all your electrical equipment. You got to do nothing but demand destruction, change your lifestyle radically which were all for conservation, but this is what they're all banking on.

You've got Colorado, Texas, have you seen anything cause I don't want to unfairly smear them, have you seen anything coming out of Biden on any type of budget, any type of appropriations anything, the $3 trillion have been passed for the American Recovery or the Infrastructure Bill or the Build Back Better mini bill over $3 trillion of off the books spending, have you seen anything that's going to alleviate the energy crisis for middle Americans and working class Americans Sir?

Dave Walsh:

I'll be fair, you rarely have positives but there are a couple and it's not from the administration. Newsome and Whitmer believe it or not pushing Whitmer to reopen the Palisades nuclear plant in Michigan and Newsom actually to keep Diablo Canyon, open nuclear plant, couple thousand megawatts for five years. Unbelievably we have to give credit where credit is due. Those things must happen, baseload continuous duty facilities. The administration, no.

Steve Bannon:

Hang on, does Whitmer and Newsom have any option? If they don't do that will their economies collapse?

Dave Walsh:

Their noses at the wall. I’m surprised they didn't get bloody. They have no option. But the administration’s standpoint, Yellen spoke eloquently last week once again, “we will rid ourselves of the dependence on fossil fuels” so you know where they're coming from. That's the end of their position. They've doubled down in this been very consistent on it and no the administration at its level is doing is doing nothing to add to the fuel supply or energy supply for the country meaningfully.

Steve Bannon:

Dave how do people get to you GETTR cause you're putting up stuff on your site all day long on your feed?

Dave Walsh:

@DaveWalshEnergy on GETTR, appreciate it Dave fantastic.
