Who Is to Blame? Isn’t This Just About Climate Change or Factors Out of Human Control?
While climate change is certainly a contributor to the devastation of these fires, the sad truth is that “natural” conditions alone do not appear to be the core reason for the fires.
Investigators are closely examining the actions of Hawaiian Electric Industries, Inc. (HE), the state’s main utility company supplying 95% of the region.
It appears that HE did not shut down the power grid despite the Hawaii Weather Service’s having warned for days that rare “fire weather” conditions were forming:
- Parched vegetation for fuel (Maui has been plagued by drought since May)
- Low-surface dry air
- High winds approaching from Category 4 Hurricane Dora
The first lawsuit was filed August 14, 2023, charging Hawaiian Electric with “loss of life” and blaming the inferno’s origin on HE’s failure to shut off power lines before predicted storm winds struck.
The state’s biggest power utility, which provides electricity to 95% of the state, faces growing scrutiny about its failure to act for years to harden the power grid and its failure to act immediately before the fires to prevent downed lines from igniting flames.
