A rent seeking request came in yesterdays email from our good global warmer friends at PG&E, they want me to jack up my electric bill by five buck a month to save the planet. That was followed by a jump in our PG&E bill which required a call to find out why. According to PG&E we used more gas due to the excessive cold month of May? And, now they want us to join the global warmers club. They need a new marketing plan, if it is extra cold out who is going to pay for global warrming, especially when they are paying PG&E for the extra gas.

Note, I left out the link to sign up. They are on their own in promoting this fraud on California rate payers.
