    But it's going to convince some climate deniers too..

    Actually it could localize electricity production, so you wouldn't need massive powerlines that spark fires all over the state when they're hit by trees. You could even have a percentage solar or wind power production in each home leading to less need for power plants to move energy further. Maybe it's time for the fossil fuel lobby to let America move forward instead of making America stay in the 20th century by using old dirty power sources.

    This fellow Jew has no idea what he's talking about, rooftop solar goes into the grid and does not power the house itself.
    No grid means no power to residential areas unless they properly prepared for living in third world conditions with generators and battery banks.

    The water head Leftists are blaming capitalism. This is not the fault of capitalism. This crony company was contracted by California government, and there is no competition inside of a more than 70,000 square mile area, as the State of california allows them to hold a monopoly, and enforces that monopoly for them. There's nothing stopping California government from just running the power grid, themselves. Your government created this mess, Leftists.

    LOL. how can you fight climate change? its climate, its suppose to change. this "climate change" that you got al gore, leo dicaprio, and now a 15 year old girl into promoting is nothing more than a tax scam on western citizens with disposable income. we should check with macron and see how his gasoline tax is saving planet earth.

  27. STATIC TV says:

    Climate TAX 😜👈

  28. Zybersun USA says:

    I am just thinking that maybe, temporarily, California should focus more on fire prevention as the first and most important battle against climate change. But hey, if you all want to live in a burnt out desert go for it. But I still don't get how that helps the climate.

  29. RC RC says:

    Yeah, been hearing, climate change, global warming, global cooling, tax more tax and then more tax to change things and how thr planet reacts? Repetition really works on some people.

    May make climate change harder but home invasion robberies easier.
