    Astounding Movie on Toxic Oil, Coal, and Utility Companies AND Citizens Winning Against them

    "Power Trip" by Jonathan Scott shows how big energy companies dominate legislators, politicians, and courts to maintain their monopoly high prices.  They  shut down local independent energy, roof-top solar, net metering, and independent competitors.  They harm people through their high prices, pollution, and corrupting influence.  Coal miners get black lung disease,  solar pv installers and companies are shut down, and poor people live next to coal and oil burning utilities, that dump heavy metals, toxic particles, and carcinogenic solvent into the air and water.  But the people win when they organize.  For example, first the utility in NV used lies to win a ballot to shut down local competition.  But they pissed off people so much that the the citizens came back and forced the governor to change and to support local solar energy.  Also, In FL citizens beat back the lies of the FL utility company and defeated a ballot that would have shut down the solar industry.  The industry framed it all in lies,  misstatements, and misdirection- with lots of TV ads posing as grassroots and minority citizens worried about "subsidizing solar" and costs, when in reality the utility companies harm low income people with high prices and pollution.
