    @KamalaHarris @JoeBiden Nuclear workers are electrical workers & work hard to keep your power flowing in the most needed times – like when the sun sets in Cali during record heat waves, smoke, & natural gas shortages.
    We must value our reliable, carbon-free base load energy (nuclear’s our best hope).

  • From RossSchumann:

    @MayorOfLA Or… you could join the rest of civilized world in using an energy mix that includes reliable natural gas (available in your state) and actually keep the power on for all of your residents. And, even better, would give people jobs. Oh wait, you dont like people having those.

  • From politstrip:

    @bobclendenin California politicians decided to destroy our state’s energy sector & create a failing monopoly. They shut down clean natural gas energy & nuclear energy leaving our aging power grid fragile. Now we have BLACKOUTS & have to live like a 3rd world nation w/o power in 100° temps
