But I thought California had all that cheap wind and solar?
Climate science perdicted more record heat waves but the temps are rising
You're saying after spending billions and billions on climate science
and climate prediction, it still won't keep the A/C running?
Certainly if the climate scientist installs his own home brew system like
one of the regulars here!
So, all the billions spent on climate research doesn't help power companies
forecast future peak demands?
What makes chumpsky think it didn't help?
The forecast was 100% accurate but the final decision was left to
a manager with insignificant science and math background.
And daily we're reminded what that looks like...

Thai authorities confirm, rescue is underway
ABC News, Sun Jul 8 14:30:39 EST 2018
Officials say the trapped football team will be helped out of the
cave complex over the next few hours. The operation started about 90
mins ago. Reporters on the scene say 100s of ox tanks have been
assembled in the past day. They say at present none of the rescued
boys has emerged from the caves. Officials have pushed the media about
2 km back from the cave entrance. The operation supposedly will be
completed over the next ~10 hrs. Expert divers will guide the boys
through 4 km of narrow passages, some filled with fast-flowing water,
where even a strong swimmer could have trouble getting through. In a
weakened state after more than 9 days without adequate food they will
need to dive using full-face masks through muddy water for up to 15
mins at a time. Heavy rains in the area overnight are believed to be
the reason for moving from a wait-and-see to a rapid extraction attempt.
The Trump administration has released a national climate change
assessment, confirming that extreme weather events - storms on
steroids - are becoming more frequent and intense.

Currently all four Northern Hemisphere tropical cyclone basins have
had above-normal Accumulated Cyclone Energy to date. Typically, at
least one basin ends up below average in any particular year, due in
part to opposite influences of #ElNino in Atlantic vs Pacific.
