The coming oil boom for California . . . or bust

Depends on who wins, oilers or greenies.

The intrigues in this drama are many. Does Californias Democratic Party come down on the side of low income Californians, who desperately need the jobs and state services new oil extraction will fund? Or does it come down on the side of a green lobby that is heavily backed by some of the wealthiest people in the state? To what extent does the wealthy coastal elite control the future of the inland poor in California?

Some of my best friends are greenies, but I don’t share their religion.

    I’m betting on the greens — the Silicone Valley tech billionaires donate to these causes. They don’t care about the poor or regular people.
