PG&E Heads to Bankruptcy Due to Wildfire Liabilities

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

PG&E is the largest power company in the United States and is giving employees a 15-day notice of intent to file Chapter 11.

The catastrophic fires of 2017 and 2018 in California could reach upwards of $30 billion in damages and liability. The CEO has announced his exit and has been replaced on a temporary basis by the corporate lawyer, John Simon. PG&E serves 16 million customers and this legal process is not supposed to impact services for electric power or natural gas.

The November Camp fire that swept through a mountain community in California, killed 86 people and the property and business damage has yet to be estimated. It is estimated that PG&E has $1.5 billion in liquidity and could take as much as two years to recover from Chapter 11.

Meanwhile, there was quite the travel and play junket to Hawaii as those fires burned. What you say?

California lawmakers are no different from those in Congress taking little vacations at really bad times in the worst of bad judgement. (30+ Hispanic lawmakers, part of the BOLD PAC took a multi-lobby paid vacation to Puerto Rico during the government shutdown)

FNC: A group of California lawmakers took a trip to Hawaii with utility companies last year as wildfires wreaked havoc in their state.

During the junket, representatives from utility companies discussed with the bipartisan group of lawmakers just how much responsibility they should bear for wildfires – even as Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (PG&E) could be on the hook for several billions of dollars in damages for fires it caused over the past few years.

The utility companies are pushing for a new state law that would raise electricity prices to offset costs incurred from wildfires, according to The New York Times.

The annual event, hosted by the nonprofit Independent Voter Project, was held in Maui in November. PG&E executives did not attend the conference because of the wildfires, but representatives from San Diego Gas and Electric and Southern California Edison did, KABC-TV reported.

Those in attendance at the Wailea conference included California Assembly members Frank Bigelow, Bill Brough, Ian Calderon, Jim Cooper, Tom Daly, Heath Flora, Jim Frazier, Reggie Jones-Sawyer, Freddie Rodriguez and Blanca Rubio. State Sens. Ben Hueso and Cathleen Galgiani also attended, nonprofit Consumer Watchdog reports.

Bigelow and Brough are Republicans. The rest of the group are Democrats.

Thanks to Consumer Watchdog, a non-profit that is dedicated to being a consumer advocate with regard to protecting taxpayers and taking on special interests regardless of party. Ah, but take caution, keep an eye on a possible financial bailout of PG&E. There are some energy billionaires out there that will lobby for financial assistance for PG&E.

It was just last June that a report was published revealing that PG&E has the makings of another Enron. For the highlights of that report, go here.

  1. Do not accept the now prevalent “Resilient Cities” farce, as the program is just another step down the rabbit hole of depriving citizenry of their property, lives, and treasure. The Elite in this especially Rothchilds, and a few others, will gain. Yet to be seen, is what will be placed on the burned out properties. If it sounds good, look out.
    Of special note is a video noting the scares running up the mountain at the end of the fires path. We are not in normal time ladies and gentlemen.

  2. In an attempt to assist one in the grasping the ruthless nature of the extremely wealthy elite ( Rockefeller for example )
    and there are several families identical, plus hangers on, a very condensed timeline to the fires — First, the wars in Europe ending late1800, created billionaires. In 1903-4 the came here and melded creating Foundations- Ford, Carnegie etc. 1909, banking interference. 1913, hired Wilson and achieved the “Federal Reserve” through Congressional trickery. Also in 1913-1918, pushed for America to enter WW1- In 1917 these wealth elite funded the “Russian Revolution” 22 million dollars, ( no concern for humanity in Russia ) instilling Communism – The elite goal, assets ( money ), not people. in 1921 the CFR ( Council on Foreign Relations ) was created, with a twin in London the RIIA. In 1920-2, Rockefeller started sending professors to the “Lenin Institute” to learn Psychopolitics, the study of mental control. all the connections prospered until 1938 & 1939 when CFR started committees to prepare for WW2. At the close of WW2, the monster CFR, not Nations tired of war, saw the completion of their goal in creating the “Charter to the United Nations” with 45 members creating the structure with Communist Alger Hiss at the controls. Thus began the age old quest by the hidden elite, Illuminati, Bilderbergers, what ever you desire to call them to finally build their collective dream, the NWO. It continues in the US, as many tentacles, UNESCO education, EPA, Ag21, Sustainable Development, Wildlife defense fund, Soros, and on and on. The fires are what is called nudging. The elite want us as worker bees, not free citizens. That is simply slavery of another kind.
