    She’d probably like a little blast of global warming blowing up her knickers right about now.

    I sure hope Katherine is using propane to heat her home.
    U.S. propane shortage hits millions during brutal freeze

    ….Prices of the fuel, a liquefied petroleum gas, have rocketed to all-time highs in Midwestern states, distributors are rationing supplies, and some schools have shut due to a lack of the fuel during this year’s second bout of Arctic weather….

    Most households are not connected directly to propane pipelines, and the system relies heavily on truck fleets now running at full capacity to get emergency supplies to states across the Midwest, Northeast and Southeast.

    The U.S. Department of Transportation has issued emergency orders suspending the limits on the amount of time truck drivers can spend on the road for 10 Midwestern states and 12 Northeastern states, a rare regional order….

    OH and to add more ice on the cake. The USA is also running out of rock salt to salt the roads.

    We get hit with another Polar Express and some people will be shoving the Warmists words back down their throats the hard way.

    This is the first Hayhoe story I have replied to.
    I have always used my real name here. Until now. Why? My daughter is currently working toward a Master’s in Environmental Engineering at Texas Tech. I would not take it beyond this woman to attempt retribution against my daughter for something I say. I’m not important but bitter little people in positions of power do strange things.

    My daughter is big on clean water and recycling. She also knows that wind power is terribly inefficient. She is getting tied of the cold in Lubbock though.

  4. Gail–They are not kidding about prices skyrocketing on propane. So far, I have not seen a shortage in Wyoming, but the last time I bought propane (mid January), I did have to negotiate to get only 100 gallons, not the usual 200 (so no shortage yet) because the price was up to over $3.00 per gallon. It was just over $2.00 per gallon in October.when I actually filled. A coworker of my husband’s said he paid $6.00 per gallon. I was shocked at the price increase. In 30 years of buying propane, I’ve never seen such a price increase. Fortunately, three years ago I replaced my furnace (old one was maybe 60% efficient) with a 96% efficient furnace. At the current rate of propane cost, I may save enough to pay for the furnace in another year. It’s incredible.

      Yep. When I built my home, propane was less than a dollar a gallon, and it was a cheap way to heat. A neighbor of mine just paid over five dollars per gallon last week. I have acreage, and will eventually install a geothermal unit myself someday soon, very soon if these prices do not drop significantly.

    Maybe Ms. Hayhoe can open her Piehoe and exhale enough hot air to warm up west Texas.

    You are looking at the Domino effect (in part)
    Because of booming ethanol market, which came as a decree from Washington, more land has been shifted into producing corn.
    This fall, the harvest was particularly wet and an inordinate amount of propane was used in drying the corn.
    Of course I do not have figures of relative amounts, but I do know that the drying of corn was a major factor in the escalation of propane prices.

  7. darrylb says:

    Natural gas is a better bet for heating in the near future.

  8. Andy DC says:

    The scary thing is that the “cold snap” is not going to end anytime soon!
