As Northern California communities tally the toll of disastrous fires and repeated power shutoffs,
Peter Phillips and Tim Ogburn say it's time to replace the investor-owned Pacific Gas & Electric Co.
with a public power authority. They say the recent installation of a new board of directors at PG&E
won't solve the problems, because the new directors, like their predecessors, represent the global one-percent,
not the utility's customers.
 
Notes:
 
Peter Phillips is Professor of Sociology at Sonoma State University, former director of Project Censored, and the 
cofounder of the Project Censored Show. His most recent book is "Giants."
Tim Ogburn is a manager for the California EPA, and an environmental consultant.
