Democrats say California is a climate model. Its blackouts say otherwise. "Genuine question: why should the rest of the U.S. follow our lead?"


"California is getting a lesson in how the electric grid works and why you need reliable power. We don’t have enough supply, which means you can’t get rid of any more natural gas or nuclear plants."

“We’re experiencing [these blackouts] with Diablo Canyon nuclear plant still operational, producing 10% of our state’s electricity. I can’t imagine what kind of situation we’re going to be in if there’s a heat wave in 2025 when Diablo is offline.”
