Is there a long-range plan for the USA electricity generation?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: Governor signs incentives to boost EV electric vehicles in Illinois, reported
“Belvidere, where the signing took place, is the home of the Stellantis auto plant. The company just announced plans to lay off 400 workers due to lagging sales of Jeep Cherokees and shortages in semiconductors.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient wisdom proverb to the USA electric generation long range planning by government in USA.
Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed. (Proverb 15:22)
What’s My Point?
Electric Vehicles need electric power. Generating electric power requires electric generators. Electric generation requires energy sources such as coal, gas, wind, solar, transmission equipment.
My point is to question where are the long-range plans and sources for electric generation needs in the future to power electric vehicles?
In My Opinion
Long range plans in Washington to generate electricity to replace fossil fuels seem to be at odds with States or lacking in my opinion.
For example, if we consider what has occurred in Washington to reduce oil and gas production in the USA to a chart in the Source Links below, we see the obvious result is price inflation.
If we consider how dependent the USA has become on globalism to produce raw materials to produce generation equipment and the present bottlenecks in transportation, it is obvious to me that government past and present leaders in the USA did not either have or listen to wise advisers that provided contingencies to prevent what has occurred what is now occurring and will likely occur in the future.
Plant shutdowns, inflation, bottlenecks, and in my opinion, will worsen in the future in the USA.
The same circumstance now occurring in Europe’s energy crises.

Is it possible that USA government leaders past decisions lacked long range planning in the past, and will continue in the future unless we voters wise up and demand long range plans include wise advisers’ answers to this conundrum be included before our legislators approve and sign legislation?
