The lights went out. Now California might let these gas plants stay open “We cannot sacrifice reliability as we move forward in this transition,” Newsom said last week, as he urged Californians to use less electricity to avoid the need for more rolling blackouts. “We’re going to be much more aggressive in focusing our efforts and our intention in making sure that is the case.” "We failed to predict and plan [for] these shortages, and that’s simply unacceptable," the governor added." They failed to plan because the zealots do not care about ordinary people. They say they do; but they don't. When politics takes over, YOU FAIL TO PLAN.
