Wow. I wonder how many wild fires will now be started by cooking fires and other fire use in place of electricity?

California - 3rd world state.

Excellent govt choices.

Didn't some cities there just outlaw natural gas to all buildings? https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2019-07-30/berkeley-natural-gas-ban Seems I'm wrong. Berkeley did. No cooking when there isn't power is a goal?

Let me see if I understand what is happening here. Pacific Gas & Electric is cutting off power to 800,000 of it's customers in order to prevent PG&E's customers from losing power.

I don't understand how turning off the power prevents wild fires.
