This should hit home. In two years, when some Republican faces off against Cantwell, lets see them explain this away.
Tim Belden, Enron trader: What's going on? It's hot. It's hot and they don't have enough power. And they kill fish in northwest so that people in California can go enjoy themselves at a baseball game.
Rick Shapiro, Enron exec: And then what are we doing, are we exporting some of the 'fish kill power' out of California?
Tim Belden, Enron trader: We are exporting some power from California to the southwest.
In another tape, a trader remarks that "You know what they're doing? They're selling the
fish in Oregon to the State of California for $250.because they're shutting off the spill.they're killing thousands of fish."
