Understanding California Energy
October 3, 2019
Energy in California is complicated. Understanding it is not always easy given how it is discussed in the news. Sometimes it is drastically oversimplified or conversations devolve into the costs of one form of energy and the virtues of another. But what is true is that energy is a complex subject that is made more intimidating because it involves science like physics. We know we need a lot of energy to keep people healthy and secure, and it is time we have a realistic conversation about the far-off places where we are deciding to get our energy and send our money. (Hint: It’s not in-state. It’s from places that don’t apply California’s safety, labor, human rights and environmental standards).
