California Fires Continue

The fires continue to rage across California, the damage is extensive. Please pray for all those affected by these horrible fires.

WORLD PREDICTION: PARIS ATTACK “California burns both in the north and middle.. fires.. soon” 

World Predictions 9-7-19 I had a visual I was walking up a set of short stone stairs outside to see an entire community of homes burned down, everything brought to ash. The trees in the background seemed like black thin sticks of the trees they use to be. Then I heard a voice say “Again!”

In regards to the horrible fire, with “again” being used they might be talking about California.

      To be honest it’s a bit scary. We had a fire here that was a block away. The brush fire was put out we had the aircraft in the sky spraying everything down to put the fire out before it reached the houses.

        Maybe you should evacuate, just to be safe.

          Thankfully the fire was put out but we were all waiting for the evacuation orders. Thank god the fire department acted so quickly

    Equipment from California’s largest utility company, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (PG&E), sparked two fires in the northern part of the state last weekend even as the company shut off power to residents in the area to avoid the risk of fire, according to a report.

      star48 — Just a couple of weeks ago there was an elderly man who didn’t like California who drove from his home state of Missouri to CA to set a fire but luckily the authorities stopped him.

      Not surprised by this though since there are people in this country who hate California and who watch news outlets that feed their hatred for California.

    Had PG&E been a publicly owned utility – instead of paying 9.8 million to the CEO – these fires and in Paradise, CA last year could’ve very likely been prevented because PG&E would’ve been required to make the investments in the safety of the powerlines, forced to invest in clearing out the brush and trees where they were in dangerous positions or were a fire hazard, there would’ve been far more public accountability, and there would’ve been much larger source of renewable energy. PG&E is currently in bankruptcy. Their entire market cap is about $2B. CA has a state surplus, CA could easily take over the utility in bankruptcy either by issuing bonds or by using some of that surplus.

    PG&E is basically a private monopoly that gets a return on investment for their private investors but has no competition; it’s the worst of both worlds. It’s a private monopoly yet it has exclusive jurisdiction over a particular zone, so it doesn’t have the particular competition that free markets usually have, which has resulted in them making systematic under-investments – e.g., they’ve not secured the power lines, they’ve not engaged in the brush clearing that was necessary to make sure these fires didn’t escalate, they have no provision for backup power even though this was completely foreseeable. At the same time, they’re paying their CEO 9.8 million,the investors are making money and this mismanagement has led to bankruptcy.

    In the case where you have a private monopoly without competitive like here, that’s a case for public ownership where you’re not having a profit motive and an extractive capitalism. The state should take over PG&E and different municipalities should run the power distribution for their cities and then the state should provide it to rural areas where the cities can’t do the job.

    PG&E is technically a public investment utility – in other words, there’s public regulatory oversight over it (i.e., CA public utilities commission) but it’s private investment and has a private board of directors who determine the executive compensation, and the public regulators don’t have much ability to move PG&E; at the same, PG&E is pouring millions into the governor’s campaign, into the state legislatures’ campaigns. So the process has been co-opted by these special interests. Unfortunately, most of the country have public investment utilities and not publically owned utilities – which are lower cost, energy mix tends to be more renewable, higher safety standards and you take the profit motive out of it.

      They need to be fired.

    The California fires remind me of an older prediction: “firefighters will be the heroes of tomorrow!”

    I honestly believe GOD, our higher selves, spirits are trying to tell humans to get out of California! It’s a warning to what is to come.
