Power Outage Media Frenzy

I got bumped from Greta; between Governor Pataki and the fact that the New York phone lines were fading in and out. Today it’s lots of radio interviews, and I’ll post some about what could cause such a thing,

While I’m doing radio and trying to get a little sleep, Glenn has some further links, including MIT Energy Lab study link from Suman Palit. This study, from March 2000, is by Yong Yoon and Maria Ilic. Ilic is one of the most thoughtful and insightful and technically knowledgeable people on transmission out there.

I would frame what Glenn said about “restructuring not going too well” in this way: it has stalled in a very akward place, with a lot of things, including transmission, still under substantial federal and state-level regulation.
