  2. Yessir, Blake; best, brightest, most closed-minded and vindictivest.
    I’m cryin’ a little here, too, old pal…

  5. Ms. Claire, I have a really radical idea for the State of CA..how about building power plants closer to cities and towns so thousands of miles of transmission lines aren’t required?

    Yeah, I know, we’re no longer “The Golden State” but “The NIMBY State.”

    As you say: ptui.

  6. To follow up on Blake, some information:
    Cali gets it’s power from the following sources:
    Natural gas- 43.8%
    Solar- 19.0%
    Hydroelectric- 12.3%
    Nuclear- 8.7%
    Wind- 6.5%
    Geothermal- 5.7%
    Wood or biofuel- 2.7%
    Other (Unicorn farts?)- 1.2%

    So why don’t they build the power plants closer to the places where they use the most electricity?

    Most of the wind and hydroelectric power is imported from the Pacific Northwest. Natural gas, coal, and nuclear power is imported from the desert southwest. Cali has only one remaining large-scale nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon (scheduled to be closed in 2025,) which provides 1/10th of their nuclear energy. The majority of the nuclear power used in California comes from the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in Tonopah, Arizona. Companies like Southern California Edison, PNM Resources, Southern California Public Power Authority, and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, buy electricity from PVNGS.

    California’s solar power comes from large “sun farms” located in the Mojave Desert.

    Cal won’t build power generating stations near the “beautiful people” as long as they can impose their needs on other people. Nuclear power is “evil” if it comes from California plants, but okay if it comes from Arizona. Wind power is okay , but don’t put the towers up where they will foul the view of our Cali sunsets. Hundreds of miles of fire-hazard transmission lines are okay, even if the resulting fires burn down whole towns and kill hundreds of people, as long as the “icky” power comes from somewhere else.

    Great comment/post Mike!

    I call California the “Iran” of America. Iran has Hezbollah and Hamas kill Jew babies and grandmas for them, they have Shias in Iraq fight their wars for them and they have Barack Obama and John Kerry build their nuclear bomb program for them.

    Governor Newsom wants his cake and wants to eat it too – oh wait, YOUR slice of cake? No, that goes to illegals

  8. Yanno, it takes A LOT to make my jaw drop in these days and times but I was reading the latest liberal propaganda about the California situation over at the New York Times (i know, i’m in full fledged masochism here) and i found this paragraph in the article:

    There’s something about the situation here this season that seems like a stage set for the current political moment: fires raging, a giant company, PG&E, responsible for so much of the death and destruction; the incredible salaries and compensation of that company’s executives, the huge shareholder dividends; the company’s decision to create giant blackouts for millions of people, presumably while it fixes the negligence that caused the problem in the first place. And all this, with 59,000 people living homeless in Los Angeles. This is the apocalyptic backdrop against which, it seems to many of us here, President Trump is trying to destroy the planet in so many ways.

    Amazing.

    Here’s the link to the article: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/07/sunday-review/california-fires-trump.html?partner=IFTTT
