    Can any of you Californians out there shed some light on this? Have your electric bills really gone sky high?

    I'm thinking Ed's gonna have to tour soon just to pay his utility bill!

    Hhhmmm, interesting topic. Maybe what California needs is some love and peace power to help them with their energy crisis. They could start out by reading my puppy dogs and rainbow thread. They could transfer this beautiful feeling of calmness into energy for everyone to use. Peace.

    Alright, lemme break it down fo' y'all(sorry, having a P.Diddy moment)

    1. California's pop. has increased a whole bunch in the last 10-15 years...so has our energy consumption. So, of course, we don't build power plants to meet demand.
    2. California has bent over for the enviro-crazos for years which is why, now, a few miles from my home, a perfectly good, PUBLICLY SUBSIDIZED nuclear energy plant is BEING DISMANTLED!!! As Goo would say, "WTF?? [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] " BTW, you tree-huggers out there better do your homeowrk before you try to argue with me on this point...Our U.S. Navy floats above and below H2O on nuke reactors, and our boys are just fine, so don't give me any "what about Chernobyl?" bullshit...
    3. Our governor, Gray Davis, is a pussy. He came up with the bright idea of buying power transmission lines...Uh, Gov...WE AIN'T GOT POWER TO TRANSMIT!!! Davis also seems to think we can't raise consumer prices, but we CAN get out of this jam...Uh, Gov...HOW?????
    Davis is displaying NO leadership, and even the left leaning Sac Bee called this some of the most feckless leadership it can remember...
    4. NOTE TO ALL NON-CALIFORNIANS AND LIBERALS...WE DID NOT DEREGULATE!!!REPEAT...WE DID NOT DEREGULATE, SO BLAMING THIS ON SAID DEREGULATION IS STUPIDITY AND UNINFORMED-NESS TO THE TENTH POWER!!!
    5. Yes, the Public Utilities Commission approved immediate rate hikes and PG&E has informed customers they will see immediate 40-50% rate increases.

    Hope it helps, cuz typing that message just cost me a few high priced megawatt minutes...

    I'm all for Nuclear Reactors. It's the only solution to massive amout of energy this country consumes. Solar power would be good too but still would not give us the amount of energy, like reactors could give us, this country needs every year. Nuclear powered cars would Rock!!

    I'm beginning to think the only way we can solve all our energy issues is to actually discover cold fusion.
