Even with the nuclear and coal fired plants running they still issue alerts on heavy usage days. Nothing unusual about that but i am sure you can come up with something to explain it away.

Not even surprised. Add to that the fact that more of California's power comes from out of state and you had a ready made energy crisis.

Now they have an energy and an economic crisis.

Why, enviromentalist or capitalist would make sense. The enviromentalist because it would have the dual effect of cleaning up the air and making cars more expensive and capitalist because they could make tons of cash off them.

Of course thinking things out has never been your strong area.

Actually ENRON did just that and they had brownouts and blackouts. As for California sources of power. They receive it from several states and even Mexico and Canada. Just cutting off all coal produced electricity would be enough to place Califronia in the dark. Not to mention the higher cost of solar and wind would push many californian business out of the state or out of business.

Well now if coal was cut off than 60% of America would go in the dark. Again you don't have a clue. Do you live in this Great Country of ours or you on loan here? Well I think that your as many say a Less than a Box of rocks. Do post what one child lrft behind program you attended maybe we could get you a refund.

Wow, you just made a valid argument AGAINST the GW theory. If it's not predictable, how the heck did it become a theory?
You Zeplin is going down in a blaze of glory, all brain cells lost.
A good article in the WSJ. It is time to take global warming seriously. We need to take reasonable steps to approach the problem.

Enron shut down power plants for 'maintenance' to 'game' the 'spot market'. It worked exactly like the greed and power model of the fossil fool mega-corporations but not quite as subtle.

Exactly as you would expect if you put private greed in control. The only ones that didn't have blackouts and brownouts (to up the price of power) were cities that held on to their public utility generation capacity.

After you go thru enough scientists, you might find the right one. However, your topix AGW denier ganghood has made errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, 3 million TIMES, 500 million TIMES, 4.13 billion TIMES, & even a thousand thousand thousand thousand thousand TIMES. So, you might NOT guess.
