"Until California surrenders to realism, its oil drillers will be fighting political and regulatory head winds. If they can look anywhere for hope, it's not to the political elites but to the broader public. Ordinary Californians are not anti-oil ideologues, and a fair number favor drilling off the state's coast."

I'm from Calif. And I learned a couple things from this post.
If I were king (as opposed to the Obama reign) I would tell every state if they expected energy to cross their borders in-bound, they would have to remove all obstacles for its production in-state.
IIRC, The DPRC (Democratic People’s Republic of California) has substantial oil reserves offshore - and banned offshore drilling. IF they would allow drilling, rights to this oil could give their state a boost.
Unfortunately, the DPRC state government would just blow the money on crap like high-speed rail, then be broke again...
Yeap, it’s hard to sympathize with Californians when they have the way out of their debt and bankruptcies sitting off their coast, and they don’t take advantage of it. It’s a microcosm of Obama’s America.
A few more won't kill anyone or destroy the view.
The "oil platforms" that were destroying the view were several perfectly good canvases on display at the art fair that were ruined by amateur artists.
Something's gotta be done about that! ;-)
