    New Englanders are gambling with the weather, and they may soon be paying a heavy price — both in dollars for heating their homes in very cold winter weather in 2014-15, and in loss of power due to brownouts or blackouts should even one remaining power plant experience any problems (or in the case of exceedingly high demand on a given day). The chief reason: Green enmity that shut down coal and nuclear power plants and has slowed construction of new natural gas fired power plants, together with the severe unreliability of wind and solar, especially in extreme weather conditions.
