Actually ENRON did just that and they had brownouts and blackouts. As for California sources of power. They receive it from several states and even Mexico and Canada. Just cutting off all coal produced electricity would be enough to place Califronia in the dark. Not to mention the higher cost of solar and wind would push many californian business out of the state or out of business.

Well now if coal was cut off than 60% of America would go in the dark. Again you don't have a clue. Do you live in this Great Country of ours or you on loan here? Well I think that your as many say a Less than a Box of rocks. Do post what one child lrft behind program you attended maybe we could get you a refund.

Wow, you just made a valid argument AGAINST the GW theory. If it's not predictable, how the heck did it become a theory?

A good article in the WSJ. It is time to take global warming seriously. We need to take reasonable steps to approach the problem.

Enron shut down power plants for 'maintenance' to 'game' the 'spot market'. It worked exactly like the greed and power model of the fossil fool mega-corporations but not quite as subtle.

Exactly as you would expect if you put private greed in control. The only ones that didn't have blackouts and brownouts (to up the price of power) were cities that held on to their public utility generation capacity.

After you go thru enough scientists, you might find the right one. However, your topix AGW denier ganghood has made errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, 3 million TIMES, 500 million TIMES, 4.13 billion TIMES, & even a thousand thousand thousand thousand thousand TIMES. So, you might NOT guess.

Hmmm, is that an example of the 'higher level' maths you keep rambling on about?

You're just asking, because your mathematics 'answers' haven't been the greatest stumble butt topix AGW denier errors. HOWEVER, your dense error of 500 million TIMES does not distance you from the greatest stumble butt AGW deniers holding the record errors.

Of course, your continuing & proud slimy steening filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pigisms make you only the next tier up from those topix AGW deniers who are alleged &/or proud threateners.

However, since you don't have any background in science & mathematics & no hi skule deegreee, you have no authority to demand answers.

Very good! Of course Paradise is found in Kansas! Or perhaps you would be interested in Climax, TX. In Oklahoma, it is well known that if you leave ADA, you must go through Bowlegs to get to Maud.

It also proved that California's energy policy was not working. That the state was dependant on electrical sources that were outside of the control of PGE.

If the government of California had not created the situation in the rush to green power with regulations then ENRON would of not been able to play that game the spot market. And notice the cities who were not affected were those who had a fossil fuel powered soruce of electricity. Those who relied on wind and solar had the problems.

Yes ENRON, taught the world some lessons that those in sunny California failed to learn. And now others have the fingers on Califronia's electrical juggler, Some of which reside in Mexico and Canada. Outside of the reach of US laws.

While I'm not a greenie weenie, I would be glad to go solar if the government would let the price fall. They hold it up by slapping tariffs on imports. Really funny only large companies are ever allowed to take advantage of the free trade agreement.
And you Democrats struggling to pay your electric bill should know that this is Obama's doing.

No, I did not forget that you got it wrong.
