As governor you
- grossly mismanaged forests resulting in today’s explosive fires
- diverted resources from electric grid maintenance, resulting in black-outs
- replaced reliable nuclear w/ unreliable renewables, raising electric prices 6x more than in rest of US
The underlying reasons that California is experiencing rolling black-outs for the second time in less than a year stem from the state’s climate policies, which California policymakers have justified as necessary to prevent deaths from heatwaves.
The underlying reason blackouts are occurring is because California lacks reliable, in-state supply. And the reason for that is California has been closing both natural gas and nuclear power plants.
