Not sure how anyone in California didn't see this coming...
Considering the fires caused by not doing it last year (year before?) I can't blame them and yeah, it's not a new plan.
What is with Newsom tho? Why should the residents be outraged if the whole point is to save them and their property?
Wait...I thought solar and wind power were the answer.
Is sparking really that prevalent? My entire life has been spent in the hot, humid southeast (well except for a mental lapse dad had in 1962 when we spent 7 months in Cedar Rapids, IA) and I've never been exposed to it as a thing.
That left a mark, eh?
Yep, power lines set a big ass fire.
I'm still taking it out on our resident Iowan.
I think I'll stick with humidity and hurricanes.
Key difference is humid. Has been a real issue in California, that's resulted in those massive fires they've had the past few years. The utilities have been criminally convicted, were mandated with impossible requirements, held in contempt, held civilly liable for billions, and are now in bankruptcy/restructuring. I used to work with a few executives on the utility boards out there, it's a mess.
They are extorting the California legislature to get a "You can no longer sue PG&E over forest fires." law put in place.
Not discounting that.... but what is the reasonable and practical alternative?
I thought I heard on the Radio that California sued the power company to the tune of billions because of the fires. Now Newsom is bitching that they are taking steps to prevent it again.
Yup, sounds just like California.
Proper management of the natural areas including controlled burning. Allowing the utility to clear enough area as to make sparks a non-issue. You know simple things the voting population of the state will be against.
I thought Cali had a comprehensive forest fire management plan? Oh wait.
Well at least their process and procedures manuals contain proper grammar.
Well, that’s a good man.
Ah yes, more from the utopia of Kalifornia. https://weather.com/news/news/2019-10-09-california-power-outages-wildfire-threat
No water, no power but hey no guns either!
This is what happens when you suspend common goddamn sense in favor of feels...what fucking shit sucking state.
Newsoms lectures Trump on elec cars.
Can’t they just burn the big cities? It would solve so many problems in that state.
The majority of the forest is federal.
