The Manufactured Energy Crisis

--- 2000-12-16 ---

Immediately around the time that George W. Bush is elected US president, an energy crisis hits California. It appears that many electricity generation plants are suspiciously not in operation, with claims that they have reached their annual quota for emissions. George W. Bush has said that opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge area to oil exploration and development would be a major part of his energy strategy. Is collusion at work between the owners of the inoperational power plants (following deregulation in California) and Bush's social network of oil and energy barons? You figure it out.
