    Public service announcement about the De-energizing of Rural California.

    What Starts in California filters out to the rest of the states and for those like me who live in California this is your tax dollars at work when Democrats are in control of policy. and governmental mismanagemetn of the forestry due to listening to rabid ecology nuts.

    https://www.latimes.com/california/s...ew-laws-newsom
    Given the realities of climate change and extreme weather events, the work is not done, but these bills represent important steps forward on prevention, community resilience and utility oversight,” Newsom said.

    Conceived as a method of last resort, planned outages have become a more common tactic to prevent disaster following some of the deadliest and most destructive wildfires in state history. Electrical utilities rely on weather models to suggest when strong winds, hot temperatures and dry vegetation create prime conditions for power lines to be knocked down or crossed, sparking dangerous wildfires.

    bold emphasis mine

    If anyone can figure out what on this page of the CPUC and why our state government deems it necessary to put some of our most vulnerable state citizens in danger due to having their electricity cut off with a moments notice instead of taking reasonable preventive measures such as clearing the underbrush and cutting down dead trees and carting them away to make sure there is no fuel for the fire I'd be grateful I've tried to figure it all out but there is to much to go through.

    if you are in the effected area's you can go here to complain. especially those areas where folks are not allowed to cut down dead trees(that are a fire hazard) without a long permit process in order not to harm certain animals with no guarantee they will be allowed to. ask them why they thought that cutting electricity was teh best way to go instead of using preventive measures. here are the affected areas

    I'd like to know anyone here on this board that is in one of the effected areas to let me know if they were allowed to take those reasonable preventive measures. especially those who are in the San fransisco Bay area, las angeles basin etc.

    In reality these wilderness areas should not have been developed in the first place.

    Don't wilderness areas pretty much develop themselves?

    Most of the world was once ‘wilderness’ Shuny.

    as lil pixie pointed out the whole world was once wilderness. but this is not what this thread is about shuny, it is about how government mismanagement and lack of good stewardship is not an excuse to force private companies to endanger people by cutting off needed electricity on a moments notice.

    Seer the thread was not about wilderness development but why the CA state Government thinks it is ok to mismanage the forestry and said wilderness area's and then punish innocent citizens for their(the governments lack of good stewardship.)

    Right, underbrush and dead trees are more important than people.

    Well look like i might be effected will know in about 1 an hour or 2 with 1 hour warning that my electricity will be cut off probably not though since my husband who would have gotten the word yesterday didn't say anything . and this would not have been necessary if the Democrats who have been in power for years had of committed themselves to good stewardship of the land.

    What does "good stewardship" look like to you?
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill
