PG&E cutting power to residences in CA
This is being reported over at Ian
Welsh's blog: https://www.ianwelsh.net/california-power-company-cuts-power-to-800000-h... Apparently this is a blanket cutoff with no exceptions for disables, so there will be deaths.
What I am wondering about is why, as Welsh also mentions, San Francisco voters turned down public power initiatives 11 times?? Liberal, leftist SF doesn't want publicly owned power? Could someone from CA please explain.
When I lived in the central valley, it did seem to me that every third Californian, including immigrants, thought they were going to make fortunes in real estate. I was living in a CV town during the foreclosures of 2008-10. Bank owned houses were left to sit with NO maintenance. Not even lawn care in a fire prone area. And city govt and city council simply ignored those houses while they were handing out clean up citations to owner and renter occupied houses.
