What will it take?
Well, I would have thought a major loss to the financial sector, stemming from a loss of productivity across the board where the states are
concerned, totaling hundreds of billions of dollars in losses, from a single series of related weather events and catastrophes, affecting all
electronic communications, energy transmission, and therefore manufacturing productivity as well as the ability of service related industries to
perform those services, would be necessary in order to force the cables underground.
Either that, or something very much like the Carrington Event of 1859 a Coronal Mass Ejection event, which caused masses of charged particles to
bombard the Earth, at such a rate and volume that they overwhelmed the magnetosphere somewhat, and destroyed large parts of the telegraph system in
existence at the time in Canada and Northern America. That would not only see those cables buried, but armoured, along with the rest of the electrical
infrastructure, against the possibility of further such disruptions.
In essence, if it is more expensive for the company running the line, to leave it weak and above ground, and it costs THEM, not the consumer to keep
having to replace the line, then they will move it underground.
