Hugo Chavez thinks he’s Obi Wan Kenobi

(watch it here)
Hugo Chavez, leader of a country with electrical shortages, rationing and blackouts, is at a press conference at the presidential palace and the power goes off.  Somewhat surprisingly, he doesn’t puff out his chest and yell and scream about how it was all George W. Bush’s fault or blame the CIA. He just passively sits in the dark until the lights come back on.

After the power comes back, he does an Obi Wan Kenobi Jedi mind trick hand wave as he declares :

“There was no power outage. Nor was there any electrical malfunction”

    He’s truly on the darkside.

    Venezuela’s hydro-electricity problem shows three things
    1. Chavez is not God – He has absolutely no power over the heavens.
    2. Chavez is right to seek to develop alternate means of obtaining adequate electricity supplies
    3. Chavez is also right to seek more efficent ways to utilise what electricity that is currently available.

    Im not 100% on Chavezs’ hydro plants but this is how Ozs’ work.

    The water is released to power the grid during peak times, then during the low demand times (generaly early morning/after midnight) the water that was released is pumped back up into the storage areas for the next high demand period. It allows the conventional stations to use power which would otherwise be wasted (due to the loss of efficency starting/stopping generators in off peak periods).

    Either Chavezs’ hydro just releases the water (poor design if thats the case), or his conventional power plants arent up to the job of pumping the water back.

    Either way, given he is running a command economy, and has massive oil for fuel, his failure to sort out a basic power problem is a monument to his incapability as a leader.
