    Red Adair would have been 16 years old but he would have wanted to help put out that fire...

    Clearly I'm not old enough to recall that 30's era; but I certainly remember the 'forests' of oil rigs strewn about. One in particular, along Pacific Coast Highway a bit past Seal and Huntington Beach areas seemed to go for miles.
    There surely is still oil down there; but real estate development is more long term revenues; and easier to escalate prices.
    So now, most families can't afford to buy a home, and all are dependent on foreign whims for petroleum...

    You’re making a good argument for moving away from fossil fuels and towards renewables there. Sadly, most folks are too lazy to do so.

    I always wondered if they really did put those out with dynamite like was shown in the John Wayne movie.

    Looks more like they are preparing for a dyno pull.
