Yea maybe, but the energy weapon angle the conspiracy theorists were pushing sounds way cooler. 🤷‍♀️ Just sayin, credit where credit’s due. :)

... which is why I'm sticking to the Lazer Beams from Space theory. Then if it turns out to be true one day, immediately regret it.

Yep, California forestry regulations such as not clearing underbrush or having consistent controlled burns had zero effect. Nothing to see here...

Here come the rate increases.

This is a good argument for regulation. Sure, it costs the company money, so... less jobs. But... they don't burn down an entire state, which seems kind of important.

Regulation is most often not the answer. Accountability is, corporate entities create too much protection for the individuals who run them so when something like this happens no one is held to account. Instead PG&E files bankruptcy avoids all the money it owes and in turn raises its rates on consumers. Regulations will just be another added "reason" for rates to be raised, further hurting consumers and benefitting PG&E's bottom line.
