This Rolling blackout themed ‘toon reminds of the crisis South Africa had a few years ago (2005-2008). They called it load sheddingWhen my brother & his wife travelled back to SA for a holiday as they do every year, they took along gear more akin with camping. They were going to stay with his sister-in-law’s place in (of all places) Sasolburg (you’d have to look it up to see the irony). His sis-in-law had asked them to bring along from the UK wind-up or solar powered(!) lights/flashlights as they were in short supply in SA because of the demand. Generators and other alternative means of power generation become de rigueur. It probably kick-started a whole eco-drive which will hopefully in the long run turn out to be benficial for South Africa.<.br>Perhaps a short period of load shedding in the US will make folks think twice and seek out alternative energy sources.
