the height of an industrialized nation! your future!
So what’s the “response”?
2012: A CRITICAL SUMMER
This summer California will be at critical risk for rolling blackouts and power shortages. While California has been highly successful in curbing energy demand during peak (high-usage) hours in the past, this summer’s conditions may demand more serious attention than those in previous years. Reasons include:
Hot, often humid days which will increase A/C demand
Potential for heat storms lasting several days
Recent generation halt at the San Onofre Nuclear plant leading to
reduced generating capacity
Especially critical for San Diego County residents
Low winter rainfall and increased risk of wildfires which would force power lines out of service
So there ya have it. When people need it most, *p00f* abandoned by our industrial resources.
Think this woulda happened if we had competing energy-production companies to choose from?
