Ffs there's no way Californians are not willing to foot the bill to keep oil pipelines from leaking.

Whatever Holdings this company has in California should be property of the state for the next 10 years.

You have too much faith in Californians. We set the state on fire every year with our electrical utilities,

Reminds me of the 60's. Oil spills dang near killed all the abalone. It was horrible what happened to the beaches and wildlife. Still never recovered.

A beautiful coastline and wildlife sacrificed at the alter of capitalism.

Thoughts and prayers that it recovers.

Not with our electric grid.

Not that it hasn't happened (see Paradise fire) but the fires in California are mostly being caused by extreme weather. PG&E plans to start burying most of the susceptible transmission lines. But again it's the weather (winds) that causes the lines to spark. And in a drought all you need is a spark.

Either extreme drought (climate change) or lightning or both cause most of our fires.

The worst fires in California (the ones responsible for burning most of our state) 2020 and 2021 have been caused by lightning.

PG&E is guilty of murder. Not really the ones I'd want to trust.

"Pacific Gas & Electric Co. power lines have caused more than 1,500 California wildfires in the past six years, including the deadliest blaze in the state's history."

They are now probing if it was an anchor strike that caused it... They are racking and stacking the container ships off Long Beach - I know this is a bit down the coast but not that far.
