We know from experience in Newport, RI how exposed we are to pipeline vulnerabilities after losing heat on the coldest day of the year. Now we have the Colonial Pipeline attack which supplies roughly 45% of the gasoline and other fuels consumed on the East Coast. Can you guess what the local solution for the future is? Moving away from natural gas by putting home heat on renewables and the electric grid. What could possibly go wrong?
I don’t doubt Commerce Secretary and former RI Gov. Gina Raimondo’s sincerity and concern, but how about taking another look at that Biden infrastructure bill?
GoLocalProv.com writes about Raimondo:
More talk less action? Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo appeared on Face the Nation on Sunday and warned that this type of cyberattacks may become more frequent.
“This is what businesses now have to worry about, and I will be working very closely with Ali Mayorkas [Secretary of Homeland Security] on this. It’s a top priority for the administration. Unfortunately, these sorts of attacks are becoming more frequent. They’re here to stay and we have to work in partnership with businesses to…secure networks, to defend ourselves against these attacks,” said Raimondo.
“As it relates to Colonial, the president was briefed yesterday. It’s an all-hands-on-deck effort right now. And we are working closely with the company, state and local officials to, you know, make sure that they get back up to normal operations as quickly as possible and there aren’t disruptions in supply,” added Raimondo.
Action Line: Secure your energy independence, or move to a state that won’t expose you to the follies of renewables.
