PG&E lines blamed for deadliest wildfire in California history

State fire investigators have formally determined that PG&E transmission lines caused the deadliest and most destructive wildfire on record in California, a blaze that killed 85 people last year. Investigators ’determined that the Camp Fire was caused by electrical transmission lines owned and operated’ by PG&E. A second ignition point was also determined, owned and operated by the utility.

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

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

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.
