California is once again experiencing rolling blackouts and the media is acting like the cause is a giant mystery.
From Politico, "California has first rolling blackouts in 19 years — and everyone faces blame":
The exact root of California's rolling blackouts is still unclear as more power outages loom, and that's allowed everyone to point fingers.The New York Times acted similarly puzzled.
They ran an article on Sunday titled, "Rolling Blackouts in California Have Power Experts Stumped."
The "mystery" was revealed in the body of the article (surrounded by obfuscations):
The California Independent System Operator, the nonprofit entity that controls the flow of electricity for 80 percent of California, said it acted after three power plants shut down and wind power production dropped. It also cited a lack of access to electricity from out-of-state sources.Wind shortages are a major issue few even knew existed until just a few years ago.
Regardless, California has been shutting down nuclear and other power plants relentlessly while their population has been exploding due to both legal and illegal immigration.
California Governor Gavin Newsom is reportedly planning to shut down the last remaining nuclear power plant, Diablo Canyon, in 2025 even though it could easily run for decades longer.
"Diablo Canyon Power Plant, which sits on approximately 1,000 acres on the Pacific coast, has operated safely since 1985 with its two Westinghouse Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) units that are licensed until 2024 and 2025 respectively," according to PG&E.
"The two units produce a total of 18,000 gigawatt-hours of clean and reliable electricity annually, which is enough energy to meet the needs of more than three million Northern and Central Californians (nearly 10% of California's energy portfolio and 20% of the power that PG&E provides throughout its service area)."
Mike Shellenberger has been banging the drums on this issue on Twitter.
According to Kamala Harris, "California represents the future."
