blackouts as NewYork claims insurance:
Did the American
government blame the NewYork blackouts due to
an act of god?
The Reality on the Ground!
With the loss of revenue mounting, new
york businessmen and households
count the cost of a
recent electrical blackout that lasted
nearly two days. Many businesses will claim for
insurance losses only to have them rejected due
to reports that the blackouts where caused by
lightening striking the US power grid and disabling
act of God clause would indeed invalidate any
claim so that the estimated losses of $20 billion
would be saved, the insurance companies would
rest easy and the US economy would be un-dented.
The losers are the mugs who fall for the make
believe hoax lightening strike that did not really
happen. The BBC reported that the lightening strike
was unsubstantiated and could not be verified.
business and households alike would lose their
claims simply because a small print in the insurance
contract views such a disaster as an act of God,
outside the requirements for paying for losses
theory is that the blackouts where induced purposely
to remove from the minds of New Yorkers the 7-11
attacks that are still fresh in their minds and
resuscitate the low morale of the people.
a political tool to reinforce the american governments
stance on not agreeing to sign the kyoto agreement
limiting greenhouse gases that scientific studies
on global ozone degradation has directly resulted
from american industry and commerce during the
US government will indeed use the blackouts to
show that its policy to stay away from signing
such a treaty was in the interests of the american
people, the rest of the world could go to hell
as far as american arrogance is concerned.
electricity did finally trickle through, it was
available first to the commercial sectors of manhattan.
Even though as people where still sleeping on
the roadside alongside rat infested streets, three
days into the blackout still many civilian sectors
of New York were without electricity while the
lights on broadway burned on! - I guess commerce
is more important that the wealfare of households.
sure sign that the ugly head of capitalism is
still running the show!
