Ummm... 2000 was 22 years ago.



And?

The problem today is too much growth, too little investment in new facilities and the closure of a nuclear power plant in the LA metro area.

True there. Too much regulation and NIMBYism keeping new plants from going up. OTOH you would think Wyoming would see some cash to be made and build plants for electricity for export.

Nevada didn't want to store 90,000 metric tons of nuclear waste which will remain radioactive for 250,000 years.

You need to read up on electrical transmission. It's not practical after 300 miles.

Not true. There are many links over 500 miles, including a 800 mile link from Oregon to Sylmar. HVDC works well for long distances.

Do all the homeless people leave Vegas in the Summer? Someone must be living without electricity.

(Doesn't sound like a great option though)

I have a feeling most of them are on somthing and they don't notice it as much, and I guess they also get used to it. I oftentimes think how miserable it must be for the homeless in vegas in the summertime.

I am miserable if the house gets up to 80. I bought a portable A/C this year for upstairs since it gets quite toasty in the summertime.

The homeless are in casinos. You can't pick them out because they just blend in.

Saw that, too. Transformer explosion. It can happen for any number of reasons. Saw one myself when I was driving through California about 30 years ago. Impressive! That fire and cloud of smoke was the coolant oil in the transformer case--it really isn't a clean-burning fire.
