So let me see if I understand this correctly... California can not generate enough electricity to meet demands on the hottest days so they say cut back or we will have roving blackouts. At the same time Menlo Park council persons are trying to force residents to go 100% electric. Keep in mind that PG&E has major problems with transmission (millions of acres burned, thousands of houses/buildings destroyed and hundreds of people dead) and wants to keep raising the rates for electricity to pay for things that should have been done years ago but instead they gave their executives huge bonuses and shareholders dividends. Do I have that right?

I am all for getting away from fossil fuels but when nd how it makes sense to people. Encourage Solar by eliminating permit fees and wait times. Maybe even subsidize it for low income homeowners. Radical idea: Create a power bank that stores excess solar and puts it back into the grid in the evenings.

Newsome has run our state into the ground and was seen,

At the podium today asking people to turn off electric appliances. especially the A.C. He was wearing a sweater in what had to be in an A.C.ed very cold room in the mansion. Really he had to wear a sweater?

This smacks of gross hypocrisy.

A tesla driver was seen today with a gas generator attached to the back of their car to charge it while on the road. Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot
