    AND PEOPLE WONDER WHY GLOBAL WARMING IS SUCH AN ISSUE!!!
    drating retards. do you know how much carbon dioxide was released in that eletrical fire??
    lets just say WAY TOO MUCH
    i hope the earth continues to get hot. so all you draters can realize what you have done!
    and then we all will die. and life as we know it will be just a mear memory. and the only living life forms are in some universe xxx123459789119842358344567876352167234321345646789099999 miles away

    Um, wow. It was cool *before* it exploded.

    By the way, mofarrell, while I`m not disputing global warming by any means, that amount of CO2 is almost negligible compared to the size of the Earth.

    Hey mofarrell, do you have any idea how much of a hypocrite you are, or are you just too stupid to figure it out?

    Unless every electrical appliance you own is powered your some sort of personal hydro dam, or by solar rays, or even by mice running in a wheel, you`ve got ZERO reason to point any fingers at anyone.

    Oh, and for a person who claims to have done a research paper of any kind, you sure do sound like an idiot.

    Mofarrell, I don`t think anyone is wondering why global warming is an issue. I hardly see how people finding amusement at the sight of an accident is a reason to go off on them.

    If it bothers you this much that other members may have found this amusing, I suggest you take it up with your shrink.

    That was not fake. The secondary side of the transformer shorted to ground. The Protective devices did not trip, and the transformer heated up so that the cooling oil began to boil and the presure release valve sprayed it out. The oil was sprayed into the arcing secodary and ignited. Thats what the "white stuff" was. And I believe the camera was taping some softball game right next to the sub.

    tainteddeity I think david_acord was referring to the statement "look at the electricity burn" and saying that electricity doesn`t burn itself, because all it is a result of the presence/flow of electric charge. I think what you were saying was a person can be burned by electricity.

    Coming from a 14 year old girl who knows ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about it.. I don`t think your right. You can`t even spell half of your words right.. I don`t think you qualify to speak about global warming and its effects on Earth.

    Yes, why don`t we just GET RID of electricity.. That`s a GREAT idea Mofarrell.. you can shut up now.

    yup,the electricity was so intence it was melting pretty much anything near it including the metal. That explains the pretty colors. And all that ranting about a substation blowing up causing global warming? Yeah well Mt. St Helens put out more carbon monoxcide and other gases when it exploded then all us humans have put out from the industial revolution till now by a power of 10. So put that in your pipe and smoke it. Tf you don`t like the way society functions as a whole, then you can take your little conservationist @$$ off of this planet and go save mars or something.

    so basicly your killing yourself

    personally, i dont believe in global warming. i think that the human race is accelerating global warming by barely anything, and that no matter what we do, we will still burn or freeze or w/e for a few thousand years eventually

    yeah, the same thing happened to me last summer except the the thing didnt catch on fire. you ever seen the bug boxes on a power line well 5 of em exploded in a row but one went really wrong so the auto switch off failed and so the company couldnt shut it off so it set a tree and car on fire. it was pretty intense. took the power company about 3-4 hours to shut off. i felt bad though, because the lady that owned the car was on vacation. lastly, when the car caught on fire the horn went off for some reason and slowly died, so its sounded like the car was crying for help as it died. ah, good times :D
