Climate change has put more than 25 million acres of California wildlands under very high or extreme threat of fire, according to a report released Friday by Governor Newsom's office. The report includes a sweeping set of wildfire prevention recommendations, including the radical restructuring of PG&E, which faces more than $30 billion in potential wildfire liabilities. We'll discuss the report and we'll get the latest on PG&E's Chapter 11 reorganization and recent leadership shake-up.
