Guess it's time for new quarantine laws. All Californians to social distance away from the Sun, wear mandatory respiratory masks that supply liquid nitrogen 24/7, and any home without airconditioning is breaking the law and will be confiscated with the former inhabitants forced out onto the streets as punishment so the housing can be given to BlackRock into better hands. Any and all restaurants serving anything but cold food to be fined heavily or forcibly closed if repeat offenders. hurp durp
It's called Summer. Happens every year, this hot period. It's not climate change, extra heating in the northern hemisphere is caused by the tilt of the earth's axis relative to its orbit. Half an orbit (and year) later the earth's rotational axis points away from the sun in the northern hemisphere, and it gets cold. This is called winter. There is no way to prevent this periodic change in temperature, even with all the solar panels, windmills and carbon mitigation California can muster. It might even be called natural.
Something that isnt natural is the weakness of Californias electric grid being unable to handle the load from air conditioners, which is a direct result of their political climate where activists run the show and prevent improvements.
Same fools that took away your toilet that could flush anything with one 2.5 gallon flush and replaced it with a toilet that might do the job with three 1.25 gallon flushes. "Efficient". Same type of poor engineering standards goes into your air conditioning system and keeps it running constantly because it can't handle the load for the hottest month of the year by design.
They deliberately create artificial scarcity of power then declare emergencies and brown outs. Welcome to third world living. Bullet trains to nowhere, but no power plants, or extra capacity at current ones.
California power shortages stem from lack of firm generation capacity: experts
California isn't getting hotter, voters are getting duⓂ️ber. California grid operator warned of power shortages as state transitioned to clean energy https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/08/17/california-blackouts-expose-problems-in-states-transition-to-clean-energy
“State of emergency”, now we qualify for federal funds (re: other states money). For a hot summer?! Sunshine bring ur azz to Texas if you want to feel a hot summer.
He gets high off of states of emergency. They should just rename California "Emergency".
Not at all...drill...burn...drill...baby!!
Unrelated, but, I read an article on google I believe, where folks with smart connected thermostats had seen where the power company remoted in and adjusted their thermostat. The article says it was a save energy program that allowed the power company to adjust cooling in high demand days. Texas was the state I believe. I wonder what other states do this. California sounds like it would be one of those. Is this where smart home technology is heading? Our own homes to be managed by third parties?
But I promise, there’s no such thing as climate change. Obviously just leftist propaganda from China.
Meanwhile in Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico: 🤣
They have been cutting electric production as population has increased.
In 2019, total generation for California was 277,704 gigawatt-hours (GWh), down 2.7 percent, or 7,784 GWh, from 2018. California's non-carbon dioxide emitting electric generation categories (nuclear, large hydroelectric, and renewables) accounted for 57 percent of its generation, compared to 55 percent in 2018. As a result, in-state generation increased by 3 percent (5,633 GWh) to 200,475 GWh. This increase was due, in large part, to increased generation from in-state large hydroelectric power plants, up 11,049 GWh (50 percent) from 2018. The gain from hydroelectric generation was offset by a 15 percent decrease in net imports to 77,229 GWh, down 13,418 GWh from 90,647 GWh in 2018.
A California reservoir is expected to fall so low that a hydro-power plant will shut down for first time
This guy reminds me of the robot in Lost in Space. Warning! Warning! Warning!
