Green Power Kills


We have been waiting to see just how negative SF Weekly's cover story on San Francisco's CleanPowerSF (CCA) would be, and it was indeed perversely negative, including a misquote that makes me look like a cold-hearted eco-sacrificer of construction workers and poor people. We had anticipated that the Weekly, competing with the San Francisco Guardian, a CCA proponent, would inevitably come out Against. We are shocked to discover just how prejudicial and even scaremongering (good for a few PG&E ads no doubt) SF Weekly would be about San Francisco's plan to implement a 51% renewable electricity service. Author Peter Jamison did capture the magnitude of San Francisco's CCA program; and as they say, any news is good news - so we'll take it. Click here to read the Weekly article. While the Weekly article is nastily presented in Shock Doctrine fashion, Mr. Jamison managed to hit a few nails on the head (however disapprovingly), such as the importance of the opt-out structure - so a hit piece indeed, but worth a read nevertheless.
