Batteries at the Beach

Wow, 180,000 lithium-ion fire prone batteries right at the beach in Morro Bay. What could go wrong? I remember many articles in the local papers a few years ago about many millions being spent to upgrade the Morro Bay, Cayucos sewer plant at its present location. With most other permits granted the Coastal Commission said “why would we approve this project when the ocean is going to rise 35 feet?”
I didn’t realize lithium-ion batteries could operate under seawater. A better solution would be to keep Diablo Canyon on line because nukes produce clean power even when the wind doesn’t blow and the sun doesn’t shine.
