1. Been this way a long time with such corporations. They're enmeshed into government. Because the

Public doesn't want to know where or how electricity comes from to them, any more than they care where wood, plastic, paper, oil, gas, water, gadgets, roads, medicine, meat or produce comes from.

They just want it, by golly, and they demand it be there night and day for years on end, like the sun. When or if we reach a tipping point of people being off the grid, folks might pay attention to these nasty details.

Until then, they'll keep on passing the buck. I don't see the evil industrialist bastids as I once did. That's a form of duality and not taking responsibility. Not that most of the human population how to make it without all this stuff these bastids created to sell to us. For the most part, we are not self starers, we look for someone else to make things happen and then we piss and moan later.

So we will continue to deal with this stupidity because we haven't offered a real world solution to the entire damn world that is out there screaming its head off for power delivered to them. The aggregated howl of the public is what gives the energy giants power.

The solution is not going to be easy, but socialism could work with an informed and educated public to keep it accountable. We cannot force corporations to be responsible to the environment or long-term public health concerns, they are built for the quick buck.

But then, perhaps I ask too much. I'm no island, either.
