I'm listening to Scott Adams right now, and he's talking about how (in the context of prison reform) the problem isn't money, we have enough, we just need good ideas. And that the phone company had that problem when he worked for them. I knew an architect in the 1970s who said that people with money seldom knew what to do with it.

I think it's pervasive.

aerohead Thanks, but I wasn't asking about the backroom shenanigans so much as the mechanism to be coded into the state's Constitution. DDG [https://duckduckgo.com/?q=New+Mexico+constitution+renewable finds and quotes this:
Quote:
New Mexico - State Energy Profile Analysis - U.S. Energy ...
The New Mexico renewable portfolio standard requires investor-owned electric utilities to acquire 20% of electricity sold in-state from renewable energy sources by 2020. Of that 20%, at least half must come from solar and wind energy, and the balance must include shares from several other renewable sources, including distributed generation.

The Unchained Goddess video

This program was mentioned on the PBS News Hour,back on October 3,2018.
It's part of the Bell Telephone Company's, Bell Science Hour,which aired in 1958.I've never seen it before.I would have been six years old at the time.
It's an easy GOOGLE.The last few minutes is prescient.

Now the weather channel is blaming "climate change" for this years hurricanes.

But I noticed 3 things about this segment.

They never said "man made climate change" specifically, which is different...

What about all the hurricanes we didn't have between 2008 and 2015?

Then the 1885 to 1930 hurricane anomaly?
We had more hurricanes, stronger making land fall more often in those 45 years than the next 87 or 88 years.
So how's dat work?
The stupid "deniers" would really like to know.

Galveston TX 1900.

8000 dead. That's 2 1/2 9-11s.

Currently, Micheal is up to 18 deaths.

Hopefully Micheal does not climb any higher.

How much warning could they have had 118 years ago? How far could they get in that time? How many people could have ridden a train out of town? How fast did trains even go?

Quote:
The old steam engines were usually run well below 40MPH due to problems with maintaining the tracks
UCSB Science Line

What other forms of transportation did they have? Horses (and buggies)?

Quote:
If I'm reading it correctly, cities with populations over 25,000 averaged 4,396 horses per 100,000 citizens.
https://history.stackexchange.com/qu...e-20th-century

One horse per 22.75 people. Stanford says you could travel 56 km (34.8 miles) per day by horse during the Roman Empire: ORBIS: The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World

I do not imagine that attempting to wait out a hurricane in a storm shelter would work much better.

How did anyone survive?

Like the Hindenburg 39 years later, more survived than perished.
