Comment

The California challenge is that more than 18 million (45 percent of the 40 million Californians) represent the Hispanic and African American  populations of the state, and the more than two million undocumented immigrants. 

As electricity demand is increasing faster than renewables can fill the gap of shuttered natural gas power plants and nuclear power plants, adding new all-electric buildings and EV charging loads onto the grid that is becoming more unstable is like putting salt in the wound. Power outages are now commonplace in California and Texas with more to follow throughout the nation as we adjust to a life dependent upon the time of day and the weather.

California already has among the highest costs for electricity and fuels, and the Scoping Plan to meet the AB 32 emissions mandate, will further INCREASE both for its forty million residents. Those huge regressive costs have not boded well for the bottom half making less than $20 an hour.

The Scoping Plan to meet the AB 32 emissions mandate will be beneficial to India and China, two of the largest polluters in the world, and place financial burdens on all Californians, as a cost for “leaking” emissions to poorer developing countries.
