California’s fossil fuel regulations have caused an energy shortage in the midst of a heatwave. Yesterday, the mayor of Los Angeles advised citizens to turn everything off:
It’s almost 3 p.m. Time to turn off major appliances, set the thermostat to 78 degrees (or use a fan instead), turn off excess lights and unplug any appliances you’re not using.
We need every Californian to help conserve energy. Please do your part. #FlexAlert
