They actually have huge gas generators they turn on for "peak" power in the summer just so people can run their air conditioning. Either way, boycotting business or power between two states will not solve any problems.
    LA has a few water issues too..... guess where they get most of their water.

    Now guess which Arizona Corporation Commission controls the water in Arizona.

    Pheonix has some water issues too. Whats your point. CA has a priority on the Colorado River. Arizona has no control over that. There is a heck of a lot more to water, especially in the west than most people think.

    So its probably a bad thing to threaten a boycott isn't it?

    Ya thats pretty much what i have been saying since my first post.

    If you think Arizona should retaliate, (not saying CA is right), how would this be beneficial to them?

    The same reason its a good idea to build weapons if your enemy is doing the same. To ensure a balance.

    Except it is kind of the opposite, since by not doing business with california you are not building anything.

    By threatening to cut off power to LA Arizona hopes to stop the economic war that LA started..... I support them whole heartedly. I think it would serve LA right to have their power cut off for 3 hrs during the summer so they can see what it is like without air conditioning. Then if that doesn't bring them to their senses, cut it off over night.... LA would be burning for a week.

    Would you say that LA has any right to get involved in Arizona’s business?

    The only way I ever found to stop a temper tantrum in my children was to make the tantrum "uncomfortable" for them to pursue.... that is what Arizona is doing. Hopefully the citizens of LA are a bit more mature than their city council.

    LA is wrong to boycott arizona, but in doing so they are only hurting themselves by cutting off trade between them and arizona. If I was arizona, with a already contriverial issue, I would try and pour water on the fire instead of fighting it with gasoline.

    Arizona has the support of 73% of the population in this country..... never stop an enemy from doing something stupid, help him. (you can quote me if you would like)

    Good for them. I don't see how cutting off power to LA will help this. They could instead take the issue to the courts, or maybe suggest to California to stop its boycott rather than threatening its own.
