    Bitcoin is an energy hog.

    One independent estimate made by the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance had the US as the home of just over 3 percent of the global bitcoin mining at the start of 2020. By the start of 2022, that figure was nearly 38 percent.

    The Cambridge Center also estimates the global electricity use of all bitcoin mining, so it's possible to multiply that by the US's percentage and come up with an estimate for the amount of electricity that boom has consumed. Because of the uncertainties in these estimates, the number could be anywhere from 25 to 91 Terawatt-hours. Even the low end of that range would mean bitcoin mining is now using the equivalent of Utah's electricity consumption (the high end is roughly Washington's), which has significant implications for the electric grid as a whole.

    So, the EIA decided it needed a better grip on what was going on. To get that, it went through trade publications, financial reports, news articles, and congressional investigation reports to identify as many bitcoin mining operations as it could. With 137 facilities identified, it then inquired about the power supply needed to operate them at full capacity, receiving answers for 101 of those facilities.


    If running all-out, those 101 facilities would consume 2.3 percent of the US's average power demand. That places them on the high side of the Cambridge Center estimates.

    GOP maladministration and failure at basic governing sure does stand out -- Dems haven't been in charge in Texas since the mid 1990s.

    ERCOT alert levels likely averted by batteries, a few conscientious power plants and a slightly cooler day than expected -- in April.

    State high was 94 in Junction, Texas.

    Windfall profits socialized to save power companies from going bust, is that capitalism, or is it a public subsidy for a market that failed?

    Other states were hit by the same storm noncatastrophically, winter storm Uri wasn't a local event.
    No board conservatives ever ventured an explanation for this.

    What can't be blamed on the Dems is passed over in silence, I guess.

    The power stations aren't the problem, natural gas production is the weak link.

    Abbott and ERCOT are lying to us about energy reliability in Texas.
    Gas providers couldn't afford disaster pricing, so the Texas lege is letting them take the shortfall from the Texans left short of power during winter storm Uri.

    By all rights, windfall profits should be clawed back from the producers who let us down.

    Texas gas bills may increase, companies allowed to make up $3.4B winter storm losses

    They clawed back windfall profits in Spain, Texas would never do that to their precious oil and gas companies, even though the whole state will be paying billions for obscene disaster pricing -- for 20-30 years.

    But maybe that's the whole deal. It isn't our government. It does the bidding of others under color of public service.

    Total aside:

    Say what you want about Henry B. Gonzalez, he never let anyone buy him lunch. To him, that seemed improper.

    If I remember the magazine article right, he made peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in a bachelor apartment in Washington DC for like, all thirty-eight years.

    Or that time he duked a guy out at Earl Abel's for calling him a commie...
