(Natural News) Washington Governor Jay Inslee sent out an email to his supporters warning about “climate change” and upcoming electricity blackouts. The force-mask, force-vax, lock-down-loving governor became infamous during the Summer of 2020, when he stood by and supported left-wing riots and the denigration of law enforcement. Now, Jay Inslee is projecting a “summer of blackouts, destruction, and death” for 2022 and beyond. In a leaked email, Inslee warned his supporters about electricity shortages coming this summer.

“As the climate crisis worsens, we’re facing the most extreme weather in history,” the email reads. “While Washington state faced the wettest start to the summer in over 70 years, other states are preparing for sweltering temperatures that will catastrophically disrupt our fragile electrical grid.”
“That means blackouts, destruction, and death. Just look at the headlines,” Inslee iterated. “It’s shaping up to be a deadly summer.”
Governor Inslee sent the letter after agreeing to unleash four dams along the Snake River. These four dams account for approximately 8 percent of the state’s electricity generation. Together, the dams provide 8.3 million megawatt-hours of clean electricity. According to Todd Meyers, Environmental Director of Washington Policy Center, this amount of discarded electricity is equivalent to the energy provided by all wind and solar facilities across the state.
Environmental groups are pressuring Inslee and government leaders to unleash the dams to save the Snake River salmon, which is on the Endangered Species List. However, these groups are not taking into account the significant, life-altering costs of cutting 8 percent of the state’s electricity grid.
Governor Inslee and Senator Patty Murry (D-Washington) put out a draft in early June, agreeing that a takedown of the dams is the most efficient way to save the Snake River salmon. If implemented, this plan would cost the state taxpayers upwards of 27.2 billion, as the state finds alternative ways to irrigate and provide electricity for the people. There are no guarantees that the people of Washington State will have reliable electricity. Rates will likely jump and rolling blackouts may occur as the government rations an intentionally-manipulated energy supply. As with any Democratic idea, there is no plan to make an efficient transition, and the people’s livelihoods hang in the balance.
