Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thought her socialist revolution was going according to plan.
But she was forced to confront a painful political reality.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was blindsided after a blue state made this insane demand.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the environmental wackos in the Democrat Party are obsessed with ending the use of fossil fuels.
Her Green New Deal wants to force drivers out of gas-powered vehicles and into electric ones.
With gas prices through the roof the Biden regime is constantly pushing electric vehicles as the solution to the problem they created.
Democrats have gone all in on trying to force drivers into these impractical vehicles favored by the left-wing coastal and urban elites.
But Ocasio-Cortez’s green delusions just had cold water poured on them by a surprising source.
California electrical grid operators are asking residents to keep their thermostats at 78 degrees and avoiding charging their electric vehicles to keep the power grid from collapsing.
The state is experiencing the longest heat wave of the year that’s expected to strain the crumbling electrical grid to its breaking point.
The National Weather Service is warning residents of “dangerously hot” weather that could see some parts of the state hit 115 degrees.
California Independent System Operator, which oversees most of the state’s electrical grid, said it was pulling out all the stops to bring “all available resources” online ahead of the heat wave.
“If weather or grid conditions worsen, the ISO may issue a series of emergency notifications to access additional resources and prepare market participants and the public for potential energy shortages and the need to conserve,” grid operator California ISO warned. “The power grid operator expects to call on Californians for voluntary energy conservation via Flex Alerts over the long weekend.”
Lowering power usage during peak usage hours will keep California ISO from preventing “more drastic measures, including rotating power outages.”
California is the socialist nightmare that Democrats want to turn the rest of the country into.
The state has led the charge for transitioning to unreliable forms of energy like wind and solar energy.
Because of the state’s fanatical commitment to green energy, their electrical grid is on the verge of collapsing from a heat wave.
The warning against charging electric vehicles comes after an announcement from California that the sale of gas-powered vehicles in the state will be banned in 2035.
Millions of drivers transitioning to electric vehicles would be impossible on a power grid that’s already strained to capacity.
Democrats want everyone to drive an electric vehicle but can’t even provide the electricity to power the small number in use today.
California is the canary in the coal mine for the massive failure of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s unworkable green schemes.
The question is whether anyone will notice before it’s too late to turn back.
