    So this is what happens when California (or Germany or…) spends their money and resources on foolish money wasting renewables instead of using that money to maintain their grid including the power distribution lines. Bernie is an economic and technical idiot. He has it precisely backwards. As usual for the hard left.

    • Stewart Pid says:

      This entire California fiasco reminds me of the old California joke about being like a bowl of cereal full of flakes, nuts and fruits. I bet that joke is from the ’70s and truer than ever today.
      Gregole …. I like ur other comment about the dems not being able to connect the dots. So true.

    Maybe before California goes with “100 Percent Renewable by 2030”, they ought to tackle “100 Percent Reliable by 2030”. (lol)

    Businesses race to save meat, beer and other items as utility cuts power to 800,000 to prevent wildfires in California

    Schools like U.C. Berkeley and Humboldt State University canceled classes and closed campus, raising concerns that research could be ruined if some buildings don’t have sufficient power.

    “Many friends and colleagues barely have enough emergency power to keep freezers cold and incubators running,” Julia Torvi, a graduate student and researcher at Berkeley, said in an email. “These two things hold millions of dollars of research, tens of years of effort, their contents being irreplaceable.”

    Millions without electricity is what a third-world country looks like, not a state that is the fifth-largest economy in the world,” said Jim Nielsen, a state senator who represents the area around Paradise.

    Record power shutoffs in California are set to become the new normal.

    What the rest of the nation has to look forward to under Democratic leadership.

      Quite often you don’t get what you vote for. But in this case it seems the politicians are to be commended – for once – for delivering exactly what they promised.

      Step one of the solution is to stop voting for more of it; however this will be much too complex a solution for indoctrinated students and academics to be able to grasp.

    I wonder…will those voters vote Dumb-o-crate in 2020?

    • gregole says:

      Got a relative who lives up there and has had his power cut. Hard-core Trump hater and card-carrying democrat. He’ll vote democrat. He cannot connect the dots.

    Who wants to buy an Electric Vehicle in California?

    • MrGrimnasty says:

      A wildfire’s approaching and you have a dead Tesla on the drive, a whole new kind of range anxiety!

      The fire seeding was down to an archaic distribution network – that can be easily solved without renewables.

      Wasn’t half the problem caused by solar panels causing localised overloads anyway?

  5. Dave Ward says:

    Apparently electricity from wind turbines is less evil than natural gas powered electricity”

    Well, statistically speaking, because it’s less likely to actually be providing any power, it is therefore less likely to kill anyone…

    “A wildfire’s approaching and you have a dead Tesla on the drive, a whole new kind of range anxiety!”

    Well at least you won’t have to worry about having a dead Dyson on the drive – unless it’s one of his overpriced vacuum cleaners…

    Perhaps when Bernie next needs an AED, he’ll only accept one charged by clean solar or wind turbine produced energy.

  7. Gamecock says:

    PG&E are my heroes now.

    The decadent punished them for the Camp Fire. Now when risk is elevated, they just shut off the power.

    We have wished for years that, for example, Exxon would quit selling gas in California. If they treat you badly, quit doing business with them.

    PG&E is doing it. Making the decadent less comfortable.

  8. -B- says:

    This IMO smells of an agenda 21/2030 nudge. Move to the big cities where electricity doesn’t get turned off. Look for CA to take action against all forms of private personal electrical generation. Especially hydrocarbon fueled generators but also solar and wind.

  9. Archie says:

    Not much bias in these commets! (eye roll)

    That Fox article linked to above only mentions that PG&E shut off power to avoid lines downed by high wind and resulting fires. Since they got hit for 11 billions for the 2017, 2018 fires, it seems like a reasonable business decision. Where is the renewable link in all of this? Yes, they ought to be able to keep power on in wind without causing fires but that seems like a completely unrelated issue.

      Meanwhile, California wants college students to get paid like professional athletes, because they have everything else figured out. (Eye roll)

    So PG&E cut electricity to northern CA and they immediately get a huge wind driven fire in southern CA. Karma bites them in the ass again.
