Are these people insane? And delusional?
Our benighted lawmakers have already ensconced a law that by 2025 Nevada get 25 percent of its electricity from renewable sources such as solar, wind, geothermal and biomass, and no one apparently has introduced a bill to repeal this insanity that could increase power bills 30 percent or more due to the high cost of such power.
Instead, there is a bill to increase the portfolio standard to 35 percent. It is SB252.
The Las Vegas Sun reported on Friday:
“U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, in his address to the Legislature, recommended the amount of renewable energy be boosted to 35 percent. (State Sen. Kelvin) Atkinson said he had his bill requested before Reid’s suggestion but added he met with the senator and his staff later on the plan.”
For some reason that I cannot divine, Reid, according to the Sun’s own transcript, never made such a proposal. He suggested an increase but did not say by how much.
Not only can they not do the math, but they appear to be delusional, inventing events that never happened to buoy their fantasies and campaign contributors.
