Thermostats Remotely Raised in Texas

As Democrats strangle the life out of the fossil fuel industry and force us to rely on politically correct but grossly inefficient power sources like wind and solar, we will be unable to keep our homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. No worries; those in charge have a solution:

Power companies in Texas are remotely raising temperatures inside of some customers’ homes amid the state’s ongoing energy shortage.

Milton Friedman is quoted as saying that “if you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there’d be a shortage of sand.” Likewise, if you put moonbats in charge of energy, it will be in short supply even in energy-rich Texas.

Houston resident Brandon English, whose home has an internet-connected smart thermostat installed, was shocked to learn of the practice after his wife and infant daughter “woke up sweating.” …

The issue comes shortly after the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), the state’s power grid manager, called on customers to reduce their energy usage and adjust their thermostats to 78 degrees or higher.

As fossil fuels are marginalized and energy becomes ever scarcer, 78° in the summer will come to seem like an extravagance.

Then come winter, Texans will freeze, despite sitting on a lake of oil, while hideous, extravagantly expensive, government-subsidized wind turbines and solar panels are incapacitated by ice, not to mention the tendency of the wind not to always blow and the sun not to always shine.

Even if the flourishing polar bears don’t appreciate the sacrifice, Democrat donors who are rewarded with Solyndra-style boondoggles do.
