Through incompetence and corruption, Illinois may lose two nuke reactors and their power grid

Meanwhile, without a way to keep the nuclear power plants afloat, the Illinois power grid is teetering on the edge of disaster. They’ve known this problem was coming for a long time. Back in May the Chicago Sun-Times (never a hotbed of conservative opinions) published an editorial warning them that they needed to get off the stick and get this bill passed. This isn’t a problem that’s going to solve itself and it won’t just go away. What will go away is the state’s ability to supply electricity. And then you’re going to see the torches and pitchforks come out in a serious fashion.

You have to admire “political leadership”. See a problem; kick the can down the road.
All for “climate change” virtue signaling.
Even if, big <synonym for the act of procreation> -ing IF, you buy into “climate change” (which was “global warming” until it wasn’t warming and before that “global cooling” until it wasn’t cooling any more), until China and India change their ways and embrace poverty, nothing will change.
In the meantime, “We, The Sheeple” in the Pepuls Republik of Ill-and-annoy are going to get an fun carnival ride.
And, don’t dare blew it on Free Market Capitalism.
I wonder how a black market aka a free market in energy will evolve?
