The blackouts were avoidable if the state had allowed/encouraged good forest management, or at least good right-of-way management. Lots of other states have terrain, trees, dry weather and electric lines, but rarely have wildfires as a result of utility lines - and even then those fires are typically small and easily controlled (because the forest has been properly managed).

CA makes its own choices; Iím fine with that. But there are consequences.
