We appreciate your appealing to the morality of using fossil fuels, and what must be an exhausting fight to get through to these politicians.

But they, especially in California, *want* the highest fossil fuel prices possible. This is how they force "their" will on the people. All because they know what's best for everyone and everything - like the entire planet! If we don't appreciate their moral and intellectual superiority and do what's good for us, then they will make us all pay for being so stubborn!

Just as the arrogant Ms Boxer (basically) said: Pfft, I don't care what you have to say. I don't care what any of you have to say! My mind is made up, and I know best!

One of the state’s major utilities is set to double the price of electricity in August, and it’s likely other utilities will be forced to raise their prices, too. The price hikes are being driven by projected high costs of natural gas.

In a Monday filing with the Public Utilities Commission, Liberty Utilities proposed increasing the per kilowatt hour price of electricity from 11.11 cents, the rate in effect from February to July of this year, to 22.23 cents starting in July. --- New Hampshire Bulletin June 14, 2022.
