Cows, California and energy – a shocking lack of systemic thinking roils the world’s fifth largest economy

Every large complex system needs backup capacity and spares to function properly. In normal times, they usually do without a fuss. But when parasites come and leech the system, it will first lose its ability to respond to events that are out of the ordinary, more leeches deprive it of the ability to respond properly even to minor disruptions and when the leech load becomes unbearable, even normal operations break down. Every single windmill and solar array is a leecher on the system as they never upgrade the transmission system with it, This would cost money and this cost would have to be attributed to the renewable folks and they will violently object. Until everything breaks down. Death by leeches.
