I was looking for a clip of the opening credits for Dominion Tank Police that included this argument between the police chief and the mayor.  I still haven't found such a clip - but I did find the full first episode, which starts with that argument and flows smoothly - a nice bit of directing here - into the story and the opening credits.

This lacks the musical sophistication of some of the other items - basically it's a Casio keyboard and vocals by Sharon from marketing - and yet it fits the show perfectly.

1 We did actually have one nuclear plant offline during that whole mess. Wasn't helping matters.

LOL.  I'm torn between "BUT MICROSOFT" and "kill -9".

4 Akshually....I understand that the river providing the coolant for one nuke froze deep enough that they had to shut the plant down. Of course, with a river full of Alligators and bordered by palm and cypress trees this was not a design consideration.

5 "They they have windmills in Antarctica that are working!" - one idiot I argued with over the freeze, who had a raft of other idiots liking and retweeting him. Because all Windmills are the same, right? I mean, they are in SimCity....

6 All of the big power plants are designed for an ambient temperature range.  If for no other reason than changing between energy forms has a loss to heat, and failure to design for that basically means planning to have it break.

Like every other design goal, this comes down to an economic impact.  And the planning horizons for new power plant builds hasn't included the solar minimum, because explicitly letting the engineers know would compromise the scam.

This especially hit the wind plants, because, like solar, they are garbage.  They cut a lot of corners pretending that they are good enough to be anything but a 'supplement' to fossil that effectively wastes some of the energy produced by fossil means.
