    Default California Folks

    "“It’s almost 3 p.m.,” Garcetti’s tweet read. “Time to turn off major appliances, set the thermostat to 78 degrees (or use a fan instead), turn off excess lights and unplug any appliances you’re not using. We need every Californian to help conserve energy. Please do your part.”

    Fox 11 reported that thousands of residents across Los Angeles County were without power and a California Independent System Operator declared a Stage 2 Emergency, which means the city is “taking all the steps to protect the grid, manage transmission loss and avoid outages.”"

    Nuclear energy looking a lot better these days, eh?

    I just hope that liberals who finally get fed up with the state don't infect other states with the same shit they are fleeing.

    There's probably some blame for continued power-regulation issues, sure. But having basically the entire start of 40million people dealing with 110-degree temperatures or higher multiple days in a row would be hard for any system without a lot of excess capacity. Most of the LA area (where the largest total population is) hit highs of 115-120. I doubt Texas would be breezing through similar conditions across the state either.

    Perhaps you should read the article

    So thanks to reading the article Lewokwski shared it appears that California had a combination of:
    1. The highest temperature ever recorded causing surging demand
    2. A transmission line taking power from Oregon went unexpectedly offline
    3. No blackouts occurred.


    Well done Californians, sounds like you dealt with a tough issue really well.

    Y'all are silly. The idea that any 1st world nation would have to curb power usage is insane. Especially when they could have kept nuclear going strong if it wasn't for idiot liberal eco nuts.

    There's nothing unusual about conservation of demand during a spike, it is totally unexceptional and it sounds like it was very well managed.

    Everyone curbs power usage Lewk. That's why you get charged different rates for higher levels of usage or for usage at peak times. It's called "capitalism." You should look into it, the hand of the market is constantly curbing behavior.

    Nuclear energy wouldn't have been the panacea that prevented the west coast fires. Neither would have "raking the forest floors" like Trump claims. Both (D) and (R) parties should be "eco-nuts" since we only have ONE planet. What's really insane is a 1st world nation like the US pretending that science doesn't matter, or that it can bend and manipulate science to meet a political ideology -- for the sake of corporate conglomerate profits -- without consequences.

    That you've moved from Drill-Baby-Drill to Nuclear says more about your denial, and willful ignorance about science and global connections than anything else.

    Controlled burns would have done a lot actually.

  11. #11
    Controlled burns are already part of forestry management.

    Did you even read the article you cited, Lewk?

    It says wildfires are worldwide problems related to catastrophic climate impacts. That's not just something Californians or left-wing lib'ruls should care about....and you're exposing your ignorance (or is it bias?) when you pose it that way. What would Jesus think about Christians not being good stewards of the earth, or laughing about climate refugees, like you do? tsk tsk

    The entire point was to show you an article that agrees with your world view *and also agrees more controlled burns are needed.*

    57% of CA forests are federally managed. If you think more controlled burns were needed, blame the Trump Administration.

    You can't blame the Trump administration. In California the trees have started to explode. No one saw that coming.
