Californians facing single-source electric dependency

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is pushing for a ban on the sale of gasoline and hybrid vehicles effective in 2035, as well as a ban on new purchases of natural gas-powered water heaters and space heaters effective in 2030. 

However, David Henderson argues in an article that CARB's push towards electricity is gradually reducing diversity in energy usage, making Californians more vulnerable to power outages. 

Henderson shares his own experiences with power outages, which occurred 6 times between December 10 and the present day, and a friend's experience of being trapped in his apartment due to the lack of power. 

He argues that the state government's plan will lead to "electricity hell" for millions of Californians. Source: Econlib
