TX, OK, and LA really should plug all pipelines taking our oil and gas to these parasite northern and eastern states. Let them freeze in the dark until they get the idea that their states should contribute to the energy pool, not just take out what others put in.
During Japan’s nuclear scare, there were noises being made that we could build more nuclear plants IN THE SOUTH. So again, the South should be colonized for cheap energy that is potentially risky, while we send safer fossil fuels north in the transmission lines so that no views are spoiled for the Yankees. Sorry. We are no longer that stupid south of the Mason Dixon line.
I'm all for that suggestion. We should also put OK and LA on the Texas electrical grid and tell the rest to make it on your own. As far as fracking is concerned, I remember my neighbor - oil field worker - talking about that in the 60s.
