“With above-normal temperatures in the forecast across much of the state, the power grid operator is expecting high electricity demand, primarily from air conditioning use, and is calling for voluntary conservation steps to help balance supply and demand," said officials from the California Independent System Operator (CAISO).” - Why of course, don’t use your air conditioning for what it was intended, help Gavin manage a period of time that he and others created.

“ In addition to the Flex Alert calling for voluntary energy conservation, the state was under a Energy Emergency Alert 1 from 3-9 p.m., "which signals that supply deficiencies are expected, and market participants are encouraged to offer more energy bids," officials said.” - Very creative language. Makes it cooler already.

“ When the demand for energy is larger than the state's limited supply, CAISO directs PG&E to facilitate rolling outages to relieve pressure from the power grid. The Flex Alert and calls for voluntary conservation are aimed at preventing such outages.” - Remember, Gavin states California is the leader of the country in addressing climate change.

To understand how dumb and dangerous our California leaders are is to listen to what those outside the state are saying about us. You would think we are all stupid. And to think that Gavin is requiring the end of vehicles burning fossil fuels by 2035 is so ludicrous you have to wonder about his mental capacity to run this state. It’s obvious someone bent his arm and stopped the closure of our last nuclear facility. Thank you God. But at what point will he plunge us into darkness?

This is nothing more than money laundering for the Democrats. Democrats give billions of our tax dollars to green organizations. That turned that money around and donated millions to the Democratic Party.
