"Falling into A Burning Ring of Fire"

Before I begin, here is a list of charities to help Japan.  Thank you for giving.

Now, the music portion of our post begins:

Johnny Cash, Ring of Fire (1968)

On both sides of the Pacific Ocean is a series of tectonic plates and volcanoes that can change the maps and destroy people.

Here is a map of that area:

Japan was caught between a Scylla and Charybdis of a 9.1 earthquake and then a Tsunami thereafter. Add in the Nuclear plant caught up in the aftershocks and you have a very nervous Pacific Rim.

I've spoken to some people in the Southland ready to find a bunker, and others, who are not worried at all. 

"Hawaii is in the way," I was told jokingly. 

Here's the thing, I'm neither too optimistic or too worried about the Nuclear winds coming East. 

By the time the wind cycles around the Pacific,  any danger in the air has dissipated.  But look in the Golden State, there are NO active working Nuclear reactors.

Problem solved, right?

Energy has to come from somewhere.  And according to Environmentalists, Oil is bad, coal is bad, solar works when the sun is out (yes, it rains in paradise too) and no wind energy farm exists beyond Palm Springs.

Between the fault lines and the lack of power for the State, it is only a matter of time before the Power (and water) Bill skyrockets. 

Fluid Karma anyone?

My question: How do you solve California's upcoming energy crisis?
