Kansas Electric Bill Surge Coming Soon

Kansas electric rates are the highest in the Midwest - and it's about to get worse

Kansas has been in an electric rate crisis since at least 2018. And it is about to get much worse, as our already sky-high regional electric rates are headed much higher. Evergy electric rates are the highest in the Midwest region.

representations made to promote the ghastly wind turbine farms .... were overblown

A monopoly for investor benefit taking advantage of both tax payers and the poor. Take a cue from Chavez and turn Evergy into a government owned enterprise.

So Basement Biden and the Demoncraps shut down the Keystone Pipeline and now diesel trucks and diesel train engines will spew pollution into the air to take over the volume. What kind of sh*t are the Demoncraps smoking?

Well DUH, yes it's going to get higher what did you think was going to happen when Biden is shutting down coal and coal mining. Shutting the Keystone pipeline has a lot to do with it too. Suck it up dumb asses.

4:24 explain how it works. The shit needs to go to a far off refinery, when one could be built closer, then after the refinery, petroleum products are then off to the market by tanker, truck, railroad tank car, or pipeline.

Of course if a refinery was built closer it would have to be government subsidized for the benefit of corporate stock holders and CEOs. I think Canada considered that and decided better to use government money in other spheres like public education etc etc.

Most refineries are located where they are now in LA and TX so they can receive, or take, crude oil from places like Saudi arabia and venezuela. But instead of having a refinery in closer proximity of the source of Keystone, they decide to pipeline it to Patoka and Roxana Illinois just over the state line from st Louis. Who benefits the most from this and who/what doesn't?

What Do The New Madrid Rumblings Mean?

*oil does not tend to be along fault lines because a bunch of dinosaurs managed to migrate to them in mass and decompose around and into them. Do schools still teach that? Oil is abiogenic and seems at least, in part, a mechanism for plate tectonics to facilitate glide.

Oil is not finite and nonrenewable. trapped pockets of it are. the oil industry is not capable of transporting or tapping to deeper underlying layers without significant problems.

This is who the oil industry depends upon to prevent another Deepwater Horizon spill:

But wind and solar are renewable? Well, they don't produce power when needed, so power has to be bought on the spot market. That is very expensive, and usually involves old, inefficient plants operating on a stand-by basis. Yay, eco communism!

fine with me if they beat up the oil ndustry a bit, but the future will include the use of oil. THe Pitch wrote an article saying "In Kansas City, protesters will be calling for the city-based Green New Deal to declare a climate emergency, achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030" Has anyone tried to explain how that will realistically happen? If they want to something good for the environment, they can start by revamping their sewage treatment facilities to pollute less/create less dead zones and stop subsidizing developers making glass buildings that are energy hogs.
