    The proposed decision makes perfect sense. It’s the Joint Proposal itself that makes no sense. This agreement was negotiated with environmental groups under the assumption that electricity would be replaced with other emission-free energy. And it was negotiated with labor groups under the assumption that employees would be generously compensated and retrained in exchange for giving up their jobs. Now that neither of these is likely, all the partners should back out. Pg&E itself should back out. They perhaps thought they could take advantage of a fortuitous set of circumstances to rid themselves from the perceived risk associated with nuclear power, and that somehow they could float an idea that makes absolutely no sense and have others buy into it. Hopefully it’s becoming more clear to everyone that this idea makes no sense. California should be replacing fossil fuels, not nuclear. And if we are to electrify our transportation sector, we will need more electricity, not less.
