Folks what has this country turned into? The bastion of industrialization and technology now has one of its largest state’s facing potential wide spread blackouts because of power grid failure. This is insane. This does not even happen in many third world type countries. We cannot allow these idiots to control the rest of the country. Enough is enough.
>>1271996(OP) >The bastion of industrialization and technology
Yeah, in 1950.
We stopped trying to be that in 70s, stopped altogether being it in the 90s, and have carried on the image of being that by our sheer size.
Our principle industries, that is, the ones at which we strive to excel, are finance and media/advertising.
Government changed the law to make the utility responsible even if they were not negligent for any fire near a power line.
So the utilities said; Well then when it's hot or windy we will turn off the power to avoid fires.
All the state needs to do is return to the standard that a utility is only responsible if they have been negligent, but leftists hate admitting they are wrong, stupid or unsuited to hold public office so they never will.
>>1271996(OP) >Most wealthy state! >5th largest economy in the world! >Government that actually cares about you and uses its power for the good of the people!
And all the other retarded lines they try to give you, gigantic coastline and massive cheap labor force, yet they can't send people out there to manage forests or terraform to reduce the spread of fires. If I was leader of Cali I could implement a plan that would make fires nearly nonexistent and undesertify the entire state, I would also set up water independence so we didn't have to worry about shipping it in from elsewhere and could use as much as we wanted to green the state.
Instead all of their money goes towards nonwhites and retarded welfare policies, retarded "futuristic" rail projects that never get finished.
>>1271996(OP) >mfw electric and internet infrastructure in rural MS is better than California
That's the great thing about a republic. If the local government makes shitty decisions it doesn't drag the whole country down and gives the state the opportunity to realize its mistakes.
>>1271996(OP) >Folks what has this country turned into?
socialism for corporations and capitalism for everyone else. PG&E gets shittons of government handouts and has a virtual monopoly so of course the upper crust at the business gets multi-million bonuses every year while letting infrastructure rot into rust that starts massive fires.
>>1271996(OP) >This is insane.
No, that is life in California. >can't cut trees near power lines or NIMBYs sue >can't manage forests at all but that's another shitpost >voters force switch from mixed portfolio to maximum wind and solar, not enough power available >removal of natural gas and coal spinning reserves >voters force removal of dams >remove almost all nuclear plants >voters force ISOs to not buy any electricity from other states because it 'might' be 'dirty' power >voters and NIMBY lawsuits force PGE and Southern California Edison to not perform needed upgrades for decades over bullshit
The lesson here is that power grids and other infrastructure must be managed by professionals, not voters.
This is unironically how civilization will end one day after years of dysgenics. If things can fail like this now, imagine how they will fail when our technicians and engineers are negroid mutts living in virtual reality 90% of the day.
>>1271996(OP) >richest state in the union >billions sunk into a high speed train project for almost a decade with little to no progress shown >taxes out the ass >crumbling infrastructure >water shortage problems that have not been addressed for decades >refuse to adopt wildfire prevention and maintenance models from other dry states/countries >Keep whining about lack of funding for any of above issues, yet have funding for new gibs programs every year
hopefully they just keep outing el dorado county, they really fucking hate them. But this has been going on since 2001 because Democrats are literal tools of satan and I do not say that hyperbolically, they inflict suffering and misery wherever they grab absolute power.
It’s only getting started. The younger you go in the demographics, the higher the percentage is of 3rd worlders. Barring a revolutionary shift in political power, the US will be a Latin American country, and not a particularly nice one.
I need to escape CA, it's mutated into something nightmarish. Its way harder to even find cute girls anymore.
Im 25 I have $30k but no job, where should I flee. I promise I have never voted Den and never will. I voted for cliche candidates like Vermin and the rent is too damn high guy before being politically awakened.
>>1271996(OP) >be California >6th largest economy on earth >become minority white >makes fucking 11 year olds legal >non stop fires because Aussy trees >failing electric grid >votes democrat
California is fucked in every hole at the moment- heat up to 120F is a major strain on the power grid with everyone's AC running full blast, parts of the grid are fire-damaged, and the power companies have been fucked up badly anyway even before all this happened.
The rich will just turn on their generators and complain, everyone else will swelter.
I've lived through blackouts in the 80's (saving energy restrictions) , in the 90's (UN sanctions restrictions) , .....it was a hoot. You get 6 hours of electrical power, then you get fuck for 6 hours.
It's about time California gets a taste .... just hoping those Hollywood bitches get some taste of real life.
