Social Network: Rolling Blackouts Compelled By Enviro Control

Of 5 permit applications for coal-fired plants, TCEQ only approved only 3

Oh, it's carbon footprint time again in Central Texas...
- country and western lyrics by The Legendary

Word on the street is Tweeting and Facebooking like a live wire. The verdict?

The social networkers firmly believe the “rolling blackouts” ordered by the Electrical Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) throughout north and central Texas and parts of Permian Basin, the piney woods to the east and as far south as Austin were caused by environmental disapproval of coal-fired electrical plant permits.

Of five applications presented to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), only three gained approval, and the lawsuits and exhaustive environmental studies keep piling up.

The truth is plain to see.

About 85% of the population is living on less than 15% of the land area, which leads to massive population density along certain access corridors.

Ergo, Ercot, environmental quality wonks, tree huggers, board sitters and coupon clippers everywhere – they're everywhere, everywhere – know a good thing when they see it.

Shortage, inconvenience and discomfort leads to high prices, huge fees and – most important of all – rainmaker bonuses for mega-lawyers in croc-a-gator litigator custom-made bootees and bespoke-tailored Savile Row sharkskin.

With the human teeth dangling from the watch chains beside the Phi Beta Kappa keys to the kingdom. Ouch!

Say Amen!

Can I get a witness?

Let's go on from here, y'all.

Play, dawg.
