Wildfires aren’t the only “new normal” in California.
PG&E is at it again, doing everything possible to shirk responsibility for its role in future disasters. CEO Geisha Williams on Thursday had the audacity to say that Gov. Jerry Brown’s new plan to deal with the wildfire liability issue isn’t good enough.
She’s right that the proposal issued by the governor on Wednesday needs work — but only because it threatens to let PG&E off the hook for the utility’s shortcomings at the expense of California ratepayers and property owners.
