Re: “PG&E's Assault on Solar Power

The linemen who maintain and repair our power lines are the good guys and gals. It's the corporate suits in their office in San Francisco who want to keep their monopoly on electricity and customers. They publicly pooh-pooh the benefits rooftop solar provides to the company and the public. It reduces stress on the grid, meaning less cost for maintenance and upgrades. It reduces the amount of energy that must be shipped far over transmission lines, leaking power along the way. It also reduces the power needed from legacy fossil fuel plants, cleaning our air and, long-term, reducing global warming.

Re: “Port Postpones A’s Ballpark Plan In Order to Examine Proposal for Shipping Coal Through Jack London Square

Sending coal trains through West Oakland and the East Bay, spewing coal dust as they go, is the last thing we need. Coal in the U.S.is a dying industry as power plants switch away from coal, and the doomed coal companies are desperately trying to continue stripping the land, destroy watersheds and pollute the world's atmosphere (that means ours).
