College in California Cancels Classes Due to Power Outage
“For the health and safety of our community, we canceled in-person evening classes and sent employees home.”
None of this has to happen. The state of California is imposing this on its own people.
Campus Reform reports:
Green energy policies lead to power outage, California college cancels its classes
In a Sept. 6 tweet, Diablo Valley College (DVC) announced that all in-person classes were canceled for the day after the San Francisco Bay Area experienced power outages due to a recent heat wave.
DVC’s Director of Marketing Brandy Howard told Campus Reform, “Diablo Valley College…experienced an unanticipated power outage during a period of excessive heat with temperatures above 110 degrees. Without power, we were unable to cool our buildings. For the health and safety of our community, we canceled in-person evening classes and sent employees home.”
Howard continued, “Our top priority is always the safety of our students and employees, and that guides any response to such situations.”
California has been experiencing a heat wave with record temperatures leading Governor Gavin Newsom to declare a state of emergency on Aug. 31.
The announcement forecasted an “energy deficiency.”

Perhaps if the weather’s pleasant you could have the class outdoors.
Assuming instructors are still able to teach without PowerPoint, of course.
