  • A Taste of their own medicine

    As the blackouts hit California.

    No, this isn't about power shortages, it is about being sued for fires started when power lines shorted out due to bad weather in the dry season. (Drudge Headlines.)



    IT BEGINS: Mass blackouts in CA due to fire danger...

    Millions have electricity cut...

    MAP...

    NEW NORMAL?

    Will put medical emergency planning to test...

    When you read the articles, it is amazing how many people remain unprepared for any emergency. Watch the sky start falling if there are any long term shutdowns that last for several days especially if those outages take place in large urban areas such as LA or San Francisco.

        Can you explain why they shouldn't be picked upon when they insist on electing politicians that support policies such as mandated alternative energy, allow illegals to invade their state by the millions, tolerate the drug use and using the streets to relieve themselves in San Francisco, fine property owners for attempting to clear flammable brush in order to protect an endangered rodent, fine the power company when storm damage sparks a fire? The links are out there for all the examples I have cited.

          Nothing of it is related to the issue of liabilities as a result of the electric company's grid network near trees , high winds, and dry weather. I am content with the fact that people cannot celebrate with the death of HIV patients in SF. It must have been really exciting to watch that in the 1980's...

                What other reason is there for cutting the power this time?

                      Mine comes from my family having settled there in 1839 and having lived there ever since.

                      Where does yours come from?

                        This is the law of unintended consequences at work. The short version

                        For Progressives, big corporations are evil.
                        Therefore PG&E is evil being a big corporation.
                        Evil corporations should have to pay at every turn for their sins.
                        It's possible in the last wildfire season that an accident caused a PG&E transmission line to start a wildfire.
                        Therefore, PG&E should have to pay for the wildfire they started even if the accident was an "act of nature" sort of thing like a tree falling on power lines, etc.

                        The state of California makes PG&E payout big time for this-- after all, they're an evil big corporation.

                        PG&E responds by declaring bankruptcy since they don't have the cash to pay the amount.
                        But, the state has to keep them operating because if they don't millions will be without power and politician's future election might be in serious jeopardy.
                        Next, PG&E decides that to prevent a repeat of this accident, they'll simply turn off the power to portions-- large portions-- of California when the weather conditions are such that a brush or forest fire are likely to happen.

                        So, much of California becomes like some Third World $h!+hole suffering periodic blackouts, brownouts, and having an unreliable grid.

                          I will say that I can see another unintended consequence of this: A massive increase in people and companies installing emergency power supplies mostly in the form of diesel, natural gas, or gasoline generators with negligible or no pollution controls on them...

                          You can buy a portable one that will power a large house for about $2,000 and for about $500 one that will keep the fridge, A/C, and a few things like a television or computer going.

                          Those are small gasoline units with ZERO pollution controls on them.



                          Take that California and your "green" energy ideas...

                            The power company also got sued for when it did cut the power off previously.

                              Being a second generation Californian, and my Dad was born in San Francisco in 1898. And I lived in Long Beach for 19 years until I went east to college.
