A Potential Fix to Prevent Future Devastating Wildfires


The most recent destructive fires will be traced to downed utility power lines or electrical equipment malfunctions. Electrical infrastructure is the suspected problem or cause.

Certain newspapers such as the LA Times have proposed an effective way to reduce the risk of wildfire.  They suggest to shut the power off when and where wind and drought create wildfire risk. All other options for preventing these fires, such as placing power lines underground or trimming trees that threaten power infrastructure religiously, will not only take too long but probably be impractical because there are thousands of miles of power infrastructure that needs to be taken care of and everything is prone to error.

An idea would be to turn off whole sections of the electrical grid. California would have to build a backup power supply for households and businesses in high risk wildfire areas. This can be accomplished through solar and battery setups or microgrids in business areas. This is essentially distributing clean energy in an individualized power generation and storage process. It is a whole new idea. It would be an idea to shut down the risk of destructive wildfires. It could also create new jobs throughout California.

Though costly, it would seem to be better than bailing out utilities after devastating wildfires. It will cost many billions but it beats what we are doing which is nothing.

Hidden FDA Database Concealed Reports of Surgical Stapler Malfunctions

A hidden FDA database of medical device failures was shut down in June 2019. The database contains medical device reports submitted to the FDA via its Alternative Summary Reporting Program from 1999 to 2019. Reports which were sent to this database were not, until recently, made public. The Alternative Summary Reporting Program is a non-public database, unlike the FDA’s MAUDE database which publicly logs medical device failures or defects for public review.
