Powerline lists the latest woes for California's energy situation.
A shortage of natural gas to run backup plants.
The need for natural gas backup capacity when you can't depend on consistent solar or wind power.
P.S.

It will be an amusing day when the data comes in showing that renewables have failed to reduce emissions, and everyone will be scratching their heads why. Green Weenies all around.
