I got this email from PG&E today. This must be some kind of joke. They are trying to tell us, the customers, how to be safe?
These are the guys who kept such terrible records about their gas lines, that they are still trying to figure out which of their gas lines have been inspected properly, more than 3.5 years after the San Bruno explosion killed eight people (The 2010 San Bruno pipeline explosion occurred at 6:11 pm PDT on September 9, 2010).
PG&E has so far gotten away with a ridiculously small fine and has been trying to pass the costs of the damages, fines, and repairs of the San Bruno gas line to their customers. It's the age of capitalism, folks, and the big corporations are always going to win eventually these days.
