In California, we are currently in an emergency situation due to wildfires, high winds and power lines, shutting down power for hundreds of thousands of residents throughout the state. Wildfires. Power outages. Breakdowns of equipment, systems and people. Stress. A perfect storm where decades of poor maintenance of power lines, forest management, and technology collide with weather conditions to become a state of emergency. People are mad, pointing fingers at who and what to blame. We’re all asking how did this happen in a state known for its innovative technology, creativity and progressive ideas? What I see is that something essential has been missing for decades….and the results are devastating.
