Praise

“This urgent and compelling book is a wild tale of old-school corporate malfeasance colliding with the scary new realities of climate change, a story that only grows more important with each passing dry season. The cast of characters—including feckless corporate managers, criminal commodity traders, and crusading public prosecutors—seems straight out of a Hollywood script. But this story is all too real, and its implications matter to everyone. This is literally the story of who controls power in America, and how they have misused it.”
Christopher Leonard, New York Times bestselling author of Kochland and The Lords of Easy Money
 
California Burning is more than an entertaining and important depiction of the fall of a key American company. It’s an examination of how unprepared we are for the dangers of climate change and how unwilling we are to invest in keeping critical systems safe as we transition to cleaner energy.”
Gregory Zuckerman, author of A Shot to Save the World
 
“Katherine Blunt’s gripping writing takes you through the bankruptcies, lawsuits, and human tragedies to illustrate a company in a long, slow-motion decline. An absolutely fascinating tale filled with extraordinary insights, and highly recommended for anyone who likes to see rich narrative writing and investigative reporting at its finest.”
T. Christian Miller, author of A False Report and winner of two Pulitzer Prizes
