Activist Researchers Try — And Fail — To Link Fracking To Depression

Jerry Brown’s plan lowers PG&E’s liability for wildfire damages

Thought Piece While California Governor Jerry Brown declared that the late 2017 fires were caused by climate change, the Wall Street Journal and others have poured some cold water on that argument.
