Based on fact? Show one example of one case won by the plaintiff that won a case against an oil company for directional drilling practices. It's not like I live in the oil field belt or anything. Personal snipes at people are not cool.

Quite telling what the oil company exec said at the end of the video. That the well has produced for a hundred years and will continue to produce for at least 50 more. If we're at peak oil then these wells should be drying up soon, no? Not in 50 years.

There is nothing secret or sinister about it.ANYBODY that lives in LA knows there is oil here.Jeeezz, drive down to Signal Hill and you can SEE wells pumping! Go up to Bakersfield, there are wells right next to the freeway.
The wells are camo'ed because they are eyesores. Big freakin deal.
Hey, we also have cell towers that look just like palm trees!.LA is cluttered enough without oil wells in plain sight!

Thanks for assisting in clearing that up. However, as my above post hopefully explains, my comments were not in anyway directed to LeaderofProgress. I was just generally commenting - with tongue-in-cheek, about how some ATS members seem immune to logic and facts. It was not directed at anyone specific and certainly not LeaderofProgress

Did you know that LA sits on top of the third largest oil field in the country? Did you know oil rigs are scattered covertly throughout the city, placed near schools, malls and even a farmer's market?
