German energy crisis is stark warning on Biden energy plan

Joe Biden is rushing headlong on a path to follow Angela Merkel down the "green energy" rabbit hole, and the danger to the US and its citizens is foretold by what is now happening in Germany.  There not only have power prices gone up dramatically, but reliability is in free fall from Merkel's "Energy Transition" to wind and solar..
With winter in full swing, cloud cover and snow cover have shut down much of the solar energy production in Germany, and a string of windless winter days have done the same for wind energy.  Meanwhile, demand is peaking.  Fortunately for now, many coal electric plants and nuclear plants, which are scheduled for shutdown in the next few years, are able to work at 100% capacity, and supplemented with imported nuclear power from France and coal fired power from Poland, they are barely able to keep the electric grid up.  But what happens when those coal and nuclear plants in Germany are permanently shut down?
Radio Brandenburg, a public broadcaster has done a segment with electric engineers reporting that wind and solar cannot keep Germany's lights on, while coal and nuclear can get the job done.  That must have been deemed "politically incorrect" as that segment has been taken down from the station's archives.  Fortunately, it was preserved by a German advocacy group.
Biden is attacking reliable fossil fuels in the US and wants, like Merkel, to replace them with expensive and unreliable wind and solar.  America must stand up to that nonsense

Wind and solar are a disaster everywhere but the climate alarmist cult tries to claim otherwise. Germany can buy some power from their neighbors Poland and France, which have not gone hog wild on wind or solar, but where could the US make up for solar and wind not producing? Does Mexico have a lot of surplus electricity? Does Canada?
