In the realm of utilities, PGE reigns supreme, boasting the highest-paid CEO and the one noted to provide some of the worst service. They are a monopoly that routinely turns off service for customers due to weather. They claim they need more money to fix lines, but that hasn’t stopped them from paying exorbitant salaries and dividends despite claiming to have no money to bury lines. The number one provider of such shockingly high bills, PGE is set to increase charges by a staggering 12%, leaving consumers baffled as PGE issues a plea for even more. On the flip side, amid the global push for renewable energy, many have come to the realization that leaders of the world are denying the existence of cleaner power sources. Additionally, as they commit to renewable energy, from production to product, questions are being raised about the claims of the people to have a greener future. While the sun, wind, and water are renewable, the infrastructure to use those resources are not. This is from wind turbines, electrical lines and solar panels. Why such a commitment to the lie of renewable? Garbage in, garbage out as we learn that the government spent over $900 billion being truly wasteful. We will discuss some of the details on this episode! Join the conversation! Get ready, hold on and let’s talk about it on this Throat Punch Thursday! *Please note that Mark says a 14 year old shot his mom. He shot his sister, who is a mom.
