and yet, it is more complicated than that .Not turning off power when the problem is known....and having a history of this. Not reporting fires when they have the information. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to hold them liable. Your simple minded hyperbolic rhetoric like 'destroy' and 'happen all the time' would not hold up in a court of law and with any reasonably intelligent person...maybe Trump though...you communicate like him.The utility company has only a small blame because the lightning strike of a thunderstorm can have the same effect as the arc of a power cable. And that can happen all the time.
Therefore, it makes no sense for the community to destroy the utility by paying compensation.
In addition, Eric, You can reduce Your military budget by 15% and invest the money into the utility structure each year. That will help quickly.Yes, but that is much more expensive, especially in mountain terrain.
Customers have to pay for all.
most reasonably intelligent people in the US know this,..our priorities are fuckedIn addition, Eric, You can reduce Your military budget by 15% and invest the money into the utility structure each year. That will help quickly.
But You cannot avoid a fire like Malibu fire in the last year because it can be ignited all the time by thunderstorms.
So You have to think about something else regardless if Your utility company runs into bankruptcy or Chapter 11 only.
Yes, annual controlled burn down should be a good and easy way to keep it lowThe areas that are burning are chaparrals that are supposed to burn in nature, keeping the underbrush cleaned out. Where we have gone wrong is letting folks develop those areas and not do controlled burns to keep it low.
