I just saw this happened in 2020, not 2021, and that the recent news is because he filed a lawsuit in June 2032, a full year later.  The petition was from 2020.

ROFLMAO...

>>>The lawsuit says the utility ignored those points and instead focused on protecting its corporate brand, caving in to a “cancel culture flash mob” on Twitter and terminating Cafferty without conducting a proper investigation.

“In fact, the termination demonstrates racism on the part of SDG&E, which elected to publicly sacrifice Cafferty in order to shore up its own questionable reputation for social justice,” the complaint states. “The plain reading of SDG&E’s persistent and false public relations campaign is to defame Cafferty as a white supremacist whose termination was justified.”
 
The utility issued a brief statement Friday which did not spell out why it terminated Cafferty.<<<
 
I seriously have to laugh at this because it's sooooo stupidly funny to say the least.
 
To protect their image they fire a guy who was falsely accused of being racist which in turn ended up making the company itself look racist!!!
 
I mean how much more stupid can company executives get?
 
But on a more serious note... this is what the cancel culture wants... to turn everybody against everybody else... and sadly... to many stupid corporate executives are falling in line... one after the other... ruining their corporate reputation after they became woke without even realizing it!

Yes, the illogic doesn’t matter to them, causing chaos does.

To get back to the original poll question, this is how trash works now for most people.  They have old produce or scraps, like seeds, rinds, artichoke leaves, corn cobs which are thrown into a waste receptacle, usually lined with a plastic bag to keep it from making a mess and smelling. When the bag is full, they close it, throw and outside into a garbage can for pick up.

The new laws require each person to throw every single scrap into a green waste barrel outside without plastic. At the very least, they now need three waste baskets or receptacles indoors, one for for recycling, one for food waste and one for trash.  The food waste can cannot use a plastic liner of any kind, so it either smells or must be dumped several times a day.  In addition, they want people to give up all plastic use of any kind, no can liners, no ziplocks, no plastic wrap.  In addition, the green waste cans and trash containers will have to be washed often which waste water, another scarce resource in desert areas.

Consumer reports just published an article on reducing plastic waste. They recommend never buying take out or prepared or frozen foods. Make everything yourself.  Instead of plastic containers they recommend using fabric bags lined with beeswax.

Well then... grocery stores use quite a lot of electricity to cool down and freeze much of their produce. Therefore, we should close down all grocery stores, issue everybody with bows and arrows if they live in a Blue state and have those who live in red states use their hunting rifles to go out and kill their own foods. It would save a lot on the energy that grocery stores used to keep the foods they sell chilled or frozen too.

It's stupid laws that make a nuisance, cost the general public more and do very little to make life easier on all human beings living within reach of their regulations!

Should we expect them to ban air conditioners in the future as well?

We're a country gone totally wonky to say the least. Inefficient, does nothing for the people, taxes the hell out of everybody so that they can implement more of their crazy policies that only further worsen the situation.

If government is shut down, they won't be able to enforce what they already over regulate!

They can actually go into garbage cans and check for compliance.  They will probably give out fines. 
 

Remember when they forced people to use reusable shopping bags? Then during Covidnthey suddenly realized the bags are full of bacteria and germs.  Not the virus but hey, why not? So reusable bagels were banned in 2020.  Now they are back because the bacteria and contamination disappeared?

Whole Foods had serve yourself buffet style prepared food counters.  They banned styrofoam so they gave out square boxes people to buy take out. Only square boxes leak. So then they gave out round cup style containers for soup and wet foods. But that wastes paper.  Their lack of logic and common sense could make people lose their minds if they ever tried to figure it out.

Just as ludicrous as everything else... 

So now they're going to add another $870 Billion to their budget for garbage checkers!!!

You haven't heard of the 'smart toilet' ?  It will tax you according to your carbon, ya know that evil CO2.  These evil demons demonize CO2, even though the more CO2, the greener the earth is, which means FOOD.  It also means, more oxygen.  Of course, they know they are liars.  They have, especially, the youth believing carbon dioxide is the same as carbon monoxide.  Lot's of boomers are also brainwashed into believe people cause global warming, and the sun plays no part.  And the only way to solve this fake warming is to tax the Americans and shut off their power.  They plan to shut off our power...

They are going to put us on the Chinese credit score.  And Klaus Schwab came right out and said at his most recent conference, everyone will be chipped and they will own nothing and be happy.  He said a lot more...

Actually, the best way to stop all of this waste is to tell them to stop breathing!!! (* CHUCKLE *)

Just tell them they will die if they don't stop breathing!!!
