"This is the bane of their existence. I think the texas attorney general should get with the health insurance companies send them some civil investigative demands and find out. What's going on with that. I think that would be a great way to help. Republicans democrats and everybody else agree especially with this major increase in palliative care. We're going to be seeing coming up in the next decade or so. We really need to set ourselves up for success to be able to handle that with all the retirement. That's going to be going to be happening with the boomers here. It's already starting and it's going to be ramping up not gonna go away. If finally before i let you go. I want to talk a little bit about some other things going on in texas specifically with environmental considerations your power grid and we hear that they want to take this money and build a wall but they're not investing in their own infrastructure. Is there any role at the attorney. General's office can play in helping. Solve these problems for texans. Because i'm seeing the the great freeze the huge heatwaves it's It's getting out of control. Sure alison certainly the attorney. General zoos and defense lawsuits sends investigative demands. And things like that. But generally. you're the general counsel if you will of a large entity called the state of texas so it would have been a good general counsel policy to remind the legislature that in two thousand eleven the last time we had one of these you know nearly catastrophic cold snaps where the the power grid failed and it did happen. In two thousand eleven there was a four hundred page federal energy regulatory commission report that sort of warned in texas. Look if you insist on having a separate grid at least make modernisation and winterization priority and and you know it sat on the shelf for a decade until it happened again so i would say one attorney. General ought to have some sort of a nosy oversight over what the leading issues of the day our And and again you can't pass laws on your own but you're the lawyer state so you should have a say. Just like a general counsel would in a well run corporation. The second thing is now that the catastrophe has occurred and deaths and property insurance on a just horrific multibillion dollar scale because people's pipes burst and their homes are uninhabitable and insurance companies are saying well maybe an act of god. I don't know that we're going to cover that one. So people are literally like at within the attorney general needs to be involved in that as a consumer protection issue number one against the property insurers who are playing fast and loose with their duty to cover these losses and secondly the attorney general should be on the side of the rate payers and homeowners when it comes to these lawsuits and these questions for example. mister paxton has already ruled that urquhot.

"The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is supposed to ensure grid reliability but under Hussein Obama had ever seen it promoted renewables over reliability. Democrats opposed the efforts by Trump appointees to mitigate market distortions caused by state renewable subsidies and mandates. That jeopardized the grid on present trend. This week's Texas fiasco was coming soon to a cold winter or hot summer near you. Does that explain more than, and I've already had a whole bunch of stuff in the throat of the night? So I don't wanna keep repeating the same thing. But I hope that shows you, um that incentives authorization for 30 Year. 40 years to win and solar has bastardized the market to the point where coal and nuclear are going out of power of God.

"US EPA administrator, Andrew Wheeler and other leaders to discuss how people will get around at hot and crowded world. Mr. Wheeler, thanks for coming to climate one. Absolutely. Thanks for having me during your Senate confirmation testimony. You said that climate change is not the greatest risk facing humanity. But it's somewhere around eight or nine on a scale of ten so what is the Trump administration doing to address that eight or nine challenge for humanity? Sure, we're moving forward with our ase proposal the for clean energy act, which will reduce CO two from the electric power segment. Awesome moving forward our cafe standards. But you also reduce CO two on the proposal. It's projected to get thirty. Three to thirty four percent reduction and she'll to from the electric power sector over over the life of the regulation, though. I think there was a Harvard study that the questioned whether that will really reduce the two compared to the Obama clean power plan, which I think that's trying to replace. Well, you gotta remember though, the Obama clean power plan never took effect. It was day by the supreme court because in my opinion went outside the Clean Air Act. So it's really hard to compare apples and oranges. When you have a regulation that is was never implemented outside the jurisdiction of the agency and outside the authority of the Clean Air Act versus a proposed regulation. That follows the law follows the supreme court precedents and will reduce CO two. So a lot of this is really about coal coal production, capacity. United States is about down about a third from twenty ten banks insurance companies hedge funds are all moving away from coal as you. Well know, what is to, you know, do you really think that that easing regulations on coal will help bring back. Industry that's in decline for lots of reasons why I think the important thing here is that we're not tipping the scales. The Obama administration tip the scales away from coal. It's not the job of the thirty. The to pick winners and losers between the different fuel sources, and that would be either department of energy or for or even more likely the state PUC's our job is to set the regulations the governed the industry, and that's what we're doing. And it's and we believe we have a responsible regulation that will reduce CO two electric power segment in following both the Clean Air Act and the Massachusetts versus EPA decision though. There was an effort to require utilities to stockpile bunch of coal, which even the Federal Energy Regulatory commission. Didn't didn't go there that seems like a pretty clear effort to to help Cole by requiring power plants to stockpile coal what you know that that is outside the thirty of the EPA, and I know the problem of energy, and we're looking into those issues. I do think you know as far as. Authorities are concerned I think it's important to make sure that we have a balance of fuel sources in order to make sure that we have electric power for everyone across the country. But again, that's not the role of the and under the Obama administration. The EPA really took that on as their role, which is not what the set up to do. So people said to me that it's really Texas fractures that her call because it's cheap natural gas at her coal more than the Sierra Club or Obama. Do you think there's some truth in that Texas, fractures, really hurtful might be some truth to that? But you know, if you have a co fire power plant, and you're trying to make a decision whether or not to put on a digital equipment or shut it down. That's a big driver for the future of coal. I don't think you're going to look at natural gas is cheap some shutdown functioning co fire power plant just because natural gas is cheap. We're here. Talking at a Bloomberg conference on mobility, a lot of talk about the California waiver clean, car standards, California. The federal government or kind of at a deadlock there. How's that going to play out? Well, hopefully, we can we can end up with something regulation that the California likes and can agree with. But, you know, California's only looking at it as one policy issue, and that is energy efficiency, the Trump administration the federal government. We're looking at more than just one policy issue including highway safety lives saved. Our proposal will save one thousand lives per year as opposed over and above the Obama proposal bigger cars. What's the basis for that? It's older cars right now cars people.

"Over recent wildfires. One of the many big questions is this will PG and troubles end up hurting California's ambitious goals to address climate change Lauren summer of member station, K Q, E, D And NPR's energy and environment team explains. California governor's over and over had pushed the state to add more renewable energy to the grid. Starring clean technology. There's the overarching threat of a warming climate. Now the goal is one hundred percent clean energy by twenty forty five. But it's actually up to utilities to make it happen. PG the largest investor in the state of California in energy efficiency and renewable energy. Ralph Cavanna is with the natural Resources Defense Council and environmental group. He says California utilities are well on their way to getting a big share of their electricity from anew Ables like solar and wind. We've made them are essential clean energy partners, and a federal bankruptcy judge has the ability to disrupt that in many ways, a judge looks at all the money. A company owes and decide who gets paid what and PG ni os, billions of dollars to solar and wind companies signed contracts with suddenly those are at risk that is causing consternation across the new -able energy-sector, understandably the sticking point for a judge could be the cost PG signed some contracts for solar power. For more than a decade ago back when the technology was still pretty expensive. That's change says Ethan Zindler, an analyst with Bloomberg new energy finance the price of renewables has dropped really dramatically since when they find these contracts. A judge may not honor those original high prices, it could undermine confidence in California's a clean energy market going forward. Already some renewable energy projects that sell to PG have had their credit ratings downgraded. It's not necessarily life or death for them instantly. But it's not good news for them. So some companies are taking matters into their own hands. Good morning everyone. And thank you for joining our fourth quarter and full year last week. John ketchup CFO of next era energy sought to assure investors that it's renewable energy contracts of PG would not affect the bottom line. Even if all of that cash is trapped we expect to be able to meet our financial expectations. But the company also went on the offensive. Now, obviously, we are not going to sit on our ills. We're going to pursue all avenues it asked. Federal regulators to get involved and on Friday, the Federal Energy Regulatory commission ruled that it needs to review any changes to those renewable energy deals. This has been a hustle that has already been playing out in bankruptcy courts. All over the nation. Catherine Sandoval is a law professor at Santa Clara university. She says a big jurisdictional fight is probably on the way between the bankruptcy judge. And federal regulators California will have its own case to make to defend its renewable energy goals. She says something like this weight judge. We have in California adopted a number of laws regarding environmental protection and the bankruptcy law gives you know, thority to displace that if California loses that argument, it's hard to see how it would reach its ambitious climate change goals without help from.

"To do renewable energy. I wanna be so harsh about it. I can understand that there could be temporary mismatch between creating the capacity at grading like fizzy and avenue passing the use it or store it. But Jamie, we gotta do something about that. Is this some chance that we can become the leader California can become the leader and battery storage technology, which I think is gonna be something that clean green renewable energy has got to contend with. What do you think? Well, I think look we we we are building batteries. And we have incentivize a building is batteries to how to store. Renewable resources, and that's got accelerate. I mean, what's marketable is like even LA DWP has three coal plants. They're thinking about bringing online story that broke about how PacifiCorp which is Warren Buffett utility is charging people in California for three of its coal plants. I mean, we should be one hundred percent off coal, and we often talked as a state about being hundred percent off coal. We're not really a hundred percent off coal, and there's a move to go to a western regional energy market. Where a lot of these coal barons can bring back their coal powered electricity to California. There've been challenges at the Federal Energy Regulatory commission, which is now controlled by Trump to our green power standards. So the next governor's gotta gotta say, look, we're gonna keep California as a renewable island and not play into these ideas that many of the corporate environ. Gentlest groups have been pushing that we need to have a western regional electric market, which first of all be based on speculation, which is a really bad idea. We learned this from the Enron age. And that was where the idea came from we defeated it in legislature last two years, but it's to come back, but second of all it opens our state laws, which are very strong on preference for renewable power and getting away from coal getting away from fossil fuels. It opens them up to challenges in federal regulatory arenas other companies like record can say, hey, no, you California's got to pay for those coal plants using our energy. We have a very small market with the other regions. It's called an energy imbalance market. Our laws are largely protected because it's a small market, if we'd be if it becomes a dominant part of.

"Got disease in the river that affects out migrating salmon and so by removing the dams and creating a more natural hydrologic condition, we have the ability to hopefully reduce that disease condition in the river and and improve conditions for fish and other other aquatic resources that are important to the to the river and to the communities that rely on it. No, it's it's an important first step in addressing the larger resource management issues in the basin. And I think that folks acknowledged that this project needs to move forward to allow a other discussions to be fruitful as we work toward providing more certainty for irrigators on water supply and more certainty for downstream interests that there will be ample flows in the river to support fish and other important resources. So I think those are really the main reasons why this is the right time for the project to proceed. What are some of the arguments against the project that you've had thrown your way? Well, we certainly get the argument often as you know, on the basis of a lot of misperceptions about the benefits of the dams. And I've mentioned a few of those of there is perception that the dams provide flood control benefits or that there is your Gatien or other diversions for water users. And that's just simply not the case. Again, these dams exist for the purpose of producing hydroelectric power. And so some of the opposition to the project really involves that. I think there is no opposition that we've got workable dams and they produce clean hydro electric power. And why would we remove an existing facility? The fact of the matter is that these dams are approaching their lifespan. They were installed between the early nineteen hundreds in the mid nineteen hundred. So like. Any infrastructure. They've got a fixed life cycle and we're coming up on the end of that life cycle for these facilities. And so they're going to need significant work from a regulatory perspective, the Pacific Corp, the current owner of the dams was looking at the alternative of relicensing those, but in the interest of providing cost certainty and protections for their customers, they didn't evaluation and the public utility commissions agree that this approach is in the best interest of the of the customers. And so for a variety of reasons, the decision has been made that we're going to go down this pathway of removing the dams. I just wanna be clear that the k r c does not influence the decision, whether the damn should be removed or not. We simply implement that decision and we're going to do that to the best of our abilities, but we really can't change this outcome. Recently, you submitted a monster homework project last month. I've written some long term papers before in college, but a twenty. Three hundred page decommissioned plan was submitted. We don't need to go over all twenty three hundred pages, but can you at least give us the cliff notes of what that plan encompassed? Yeah, we sure did. They pulled a lot of all nighters to get to this twenty three hundred page definite plan for the lower Klamath project. This really is our proposal to the Federal Energy Regulatory commission to detail out every aspect of how we would go about decommissioning the dams. So we've taken a very close look at all of the technical elements of drawing the reservoirs down, removing the dams, restoring the environment around the dams, and we've made our proposal to Firkh on how we would go about doing those things. In addition to that, the definite plan looks at a number of other issues of importance, including how we will address risk and liabilities associated with the project and also takes a close look at the the cost estimates for the work so that we have shirts. That we have sufficient funding to do the project. We very much look forward to putting this definite plan in front of the independent board of consultants that we are convening at the direction of for this is a group of subject matter experts in dams and dam removal and environmental restoration and insurance and risk management who.
