UPDATE: Who is to blame? Alan Caruba has an idea in: Californication and the East Coast Blackout.
There's a reason why California doesn't have enough power plants, nor any other State in this great republic of ours. It's called environmentalism.

Gerard Van der Leun had a similar suspicion: Self-Inflicted Terrorism Evident in Blackout
What we have here is, absent terrorism, is a case of slow and "self-inflicted terrorism." It is what is bound to happen, on any summer day, when you run a power grid that has been strangled for years by the awful NO-MEN of our society.Posted by Forkum at August 15, 2003 12:08 AM
