This @AmyAHarder article is interesting, about the splits in Big Oil on policy. But it misses the main point: the companies have done their polling and are worried about the next president not being Trump. The Chamber et al are starting to reposition.
I just watched the @frontlinepbs documentary on the 2018 fire that destroyed Paradise, CA. And a quick look at twitter before bed shows the same thing playing out in Australia. "How can we sleep when our beds are burning..."
#UPDATE: NSW is in now the midst of a Bushfire Emergency the state has never faced before.

In election news you probably won't hear about, it appears that the MS PSC central district has elected an energy expert. Add him to the already robust northern district commissioner and you've got the makings of a great PSC.
California community choice aggregators like @PoweredbyEBCE are taking the lead with a tangible and clean response to the #PSPS problem. Good model for the state to follow, @GavinNewsom.
