Why are they shutting the pole power off?

The acid from the batteries can start a fire just as good without it being energized?

In what could be the biggest implementation yet of California’s strategy of shutting off power to prevent wildfires, the state’s largest utility announced Monday that blackouts were possible later this week in a large swath of the Bay Area and Northern California.

Citing the potential for extremely dry air and steady winds of up to 30 mph, with gusts that experts said could be twice as strong, Pacific Gas & Electric announced it was considering a public safety power shut-off for 29 counties between Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon.

Several years of devastating wildfires sparked by downed power lines have prompted utilities to shut down power during hot, dry and windy conditions, a policy that has caused controversy.

We know this is bullshit, since the last round of California "wildfires" were artificially created by TPTB. So what's the real plan here? I guess this is a dry run, to see exactly what kind of chaos ensues when they shut off power for a week. If the power is off for that long in the areas where they say they'll cut it off, plenty of people won't be sufficiently prepared and lives will be lost. What a fucked up world we live in.

I am in that area, our well runs on electric, we had a PGE BS fiasco lat week for two days no power it was screwed.

Since when did the American Government allow Rothschilds to control the power grid preemptively?

What a crock, I'm outta here, California has gotten on my last nerve, Fucking Rothschilds, Pelosi, Senator Pan fucker, Adam Schitt and pretty face Newsom I hope you all have fun with the disaster area you have made of my once fair state...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76130010


That’s what they want. For ya’all to leave.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75781610


How can they avoid leaving if everything is burning?

I think it’s getting obvious that we’re at war secretly with China. The California Democrat politicians and business people aligned with them long ago and they made secret inroads. Look at Feinstein and her Chinese limo driver/handler. San Francisco always had a large Chinese pop. Chinatown. Feinstein came out of there in the first place (San Francisco).

I think China is behind the fires of last year. Testing new weapons in areas they clean out for redevelopment. Word has it things are falling apart over in China, too. I bet some of those powerful Chinese one-percenters are thinking they’re going to move to California. They may even have plans to make war on/in the continental US from California. They could be trying to take over California and declare it theirs. The immigration waves are probably a part of this plan, meant to soften things up before an invasion.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19402358


Holy shit this might be the worst theory I've seen. You really think China is planning on trying to capture California? How the fuck would that work out? First of all, that simply does not make sense. There is absolutely no way another country could take California from the USA unless the USA is completely destroyed which would likely mean the world is completely destroyed.
Secondly you say China is falling apart. So as they are falling apart they are going to somehow take over and then defend California as their own state? Do you know how far away China is and how incredibly stupid your whole theory is?

Man, there are a lot of dumb posts on this site but I just cannot imagine what other crazy things you think are going to happen. Must be tough to get through life with such a warped sense of reality.

If I lived in the area I would fill EVERYTHING with water!!!

Water for drinking, cooking, washing...even fill outdoor trash cans for toilet flushing!

Dig a trench, line it with a plastic tarp & fill it!

If they can fuck with your power they can fuck with your water!!!

Interesting timing of this. Do you think that the news regarding California's energy company pulling the plug on power for millions for a week or so is part of someone's insurance policy? Are they setting up the story, and behind the scenes telling those who would make the arrests of traitors, that they will pull the trigger and make things very difficult?

Modern underground wires and gas lines are not trenched anymore. They are literally pushed. They can rotate to turn and go up and down in depth. They go under rivers and wetlands and around rocks. The only places that buried wires won’t work is where bedrock is shallow. Cost in long term is much less because the cost of maintenance drops significantly. Large capacity overhead lines are still essential but anything else should be buried in today’s times.

needs blackout techniques with curtains, black or dark blue papers covering windows glasses and covering even little openings under doors. Duct tape for small holes.
Check everything from the outside with full lights on inside

its not easy, but you need to do this to enjoy your lights
inside but also you need to go stealth in noises and smells

but if you use a generator you are a target anyway

maybe some group of baffled scientists knows an asteroid is going to strike in the pacific,


perhaps east of hawaii somewhere..and they cant be 100% certain some of the debris wont make it to the pacific coast.

hence warnings of blackouts/wildfires.

sure is windy today. maybe thats from the giant space rock affecting earth's atmosphere.

They are remote, rural and rugged areas.

Cities, per se, are not affected. Some parts of San Jose are rural.
