How Californias Fire Weary Public by Taking Over the Commercial Utility Behemoth PG&E Could Cast a Vote for Climate Justice
with
Johanna Bozuwa is a Research Associate at the Democracy Collaborative which works to carry out a vision of a new economic system where shared ownership and control creates more equitable and inclusive outcomes, fosters ecological sustainability, and promotes flourishing democratic and community life. Her research focuses on energy democracy and the just transition away from the fossil fuel economy.

A long-awaited report of the federal government, notwithstanding the climate destructionist policies and practices of Trump, has delivered an unmistakable message on climate-fueled disasters: The effects of climate change, including deadly wildfires, increasingly debilitating hurricanes and heat waves, are already battering the United States, and the danger of more such catastrophes is worsening and poses a severe threat to Americans' health and pocketbooks, as well as to the countrys infrastructure and natural resources. However the report avoids policy recommendations despite its sense of urgency and alarm.

Now, amidst the potential bankruptcy of the California utility PG&E, whose negligence is believed to have played a role in Californias most recent devastating fire, along with three other wildfires across the state in 2017, there is an opportunity for the public to take control of the states energy destiny. Californias takeover could serve as a model for other states fed up with the predatory practices of investor-owned utilities and jumpstart a wider shift across the country toward democratically controlled renewable energy.
