California’s largest utility company could cut power on high-wind days during the 2019 wildfire season, plunging millions of residents into darkness. But PG&E says coordinated urban rage from a critical mass of liberals could potentially be enough to keep the power on.
“I’m worried that we no longer have enough people fully committed to the kind of rage that powers big cities,” said Gov. Gavin Newsom. “We could see electricity shut off for a week in some places.”
Risk management teams from the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services are fanning out around the state, trying to keep liberal rage at minimum required levels leading up to the 2020 election.
“The closer we get to 2020, the less we have to artificially amp people up,” said OES Director Galit Lalaki. “It hasn’t been easy, but Gov. Newsom has made sure we have all the resources we need.”
