For Every Action…

Today we’re doing the science of cause and effect, aimed primarily at Liberals who don’t seem to grasp even the basics of this concept.

Let’s start with a simple, real world, example, in reverse order:




 “Indian Point Energy Center (I.P.E.C.) was a three-unit nuclear power plant station located in Buchanan, New York, just south of Peekskill. It sits on the east bank of the Hudson River, about 36 miles (58 km) north of Midtown Manhattan. The facility has permanently ceased power operations as of April 30, 2021.”  - via Instapundit

Not a difficult concept: if you decommission electricity generation plants without replacing their capacity you generate less total energy. Ergo, when it gets really hot, or cold - I’m talking to you Texas, but it could be anywhere – you will not have enough electricity to meet peak demand. Keep it up and soon you won’t have enough energy to meet minimal demand. Especially if you add the recharging of electric vehicles to the load.

Fact check: California didn't require electric car owners to stop charging during the heat wave. No, they simply told people when to charge. But hey, if things go really critical they’ll simply cut your power so you can’t charge your car – or run the AC.

Still not convinced? Let’s do another one.


Murder, crime rates soared across American cities last year and YTD 2021 is making 2020 look good by comparison. 


In 2020, Seattle diverted almost 20 percent from its police budget and saw a 61 percent increase in homicides, the highest number in 26 years

New York City slashed a massive $1 billion from its police budget and saw a 97 percent increase in shootings. Portland took a $16 million slice out of its police budget and so far in 2021 has seen the homicide rate soar by a whopping 1,900 percent compared with the same period in 2020. Portlanders have become increasingly frustrated by slow and unreliable responses to 911 calls – The Federalist

Despite the left’s insistence that the crime increase, like everything else, is due to the pandemic, the answer is really much simpler: defund police and you get…more crime.

Decommission power plants and you get less energy.

See how simple science is?
