I'm not religious, but I do think that if God hates California, he's certainly doing his best to let everyone know about it.Not sure if the power company did the right thing here
On one hand California dosen't deserve power, on the other it does deserve another wildfire
I am waiting for California suing them for depriving special needs people of power and forcing them to turn power onThat wouldn't surprise me. Either way PG&E shot themselves in the foot if they think shutting off the power all at once was the right move. Should have done it this summer and in parts so as not to fuck over everyone at once. But it's California fucking people in the ass is California's specialty!
The execs didn't earn much. They are in the process of getting their balls sued off/absorbing massive fines for having crews out last year that were blamed for starting a few fires. No proof but they got all the blame.So the solution to a potential problem of trees falling over and hitting HVPLs is to just shut off electricity for a giant region of the state for multiple days, instead of hiring a couple guys with chainsaws and ATVs to ride long the power lines and trim out the trees that are growing too close or might be dying off and liable to fall over in a strong wind.
Seems legit. I wonder how much profit PG&E made last fiscal year and how much their top execs get paid.
>implying Silicon Valley hasnt been taken over by leftardsThe power outages aren’t expected to hit the wealthy suburbs of Silicon Valley (near the bay), so this mostly affects California’s forgotten red voters while Newsom heroically replies to Trump tweets and signs rent control bills.
