Fade to Black

So there are warnings of brownouts and blackouts all over the province. Our neighbor to the north, the city of Vaughn has been affected by lightning strikes and are now at risk of 30 minute rolling blackouts. The extreme heat is coming down hard on everyone and there are complaints from most major cities across the planet.

The problem here isn’t the fact that we are losing power, but the fact that we are having to cut down on it, and forcibly too at that. If we sacrifice our services that we purchase, shouldn’t our service fees and the powers-that-be have their profits sacrificed as well.

I’m not really sure why I should have to save on my power utilitization only to end up paying the same bills that I pay.

If there are blackouts, they could last as long as 30 minutes in each area and re-occur as long as necessary.
