The oil companies don't like me because I want to tax them to get money for our schools, and the anti-oil fanatics don't like me because I raise questions about their agenda and misleading pseudo-environmentalists talking about the 8000 feet underground.
I would like to see a public debate between PXP and the people of Culver City where the anti-fracking people present their evidence and PXP is given a chance to present its evidence. I think it is a joke to hold so-called workshops where only one side is presented.
I publicly approved of the settlement made by the City Council and PXP even though I thought the millions of dollars spent on the lawsuit was unnecessary. We need a public debate before the City tries to ban fracking and spends millions more on lawsuits that taxpayers can't afford.
We need honest legitimate debate, not hysteria ginned up to scare the public by anti-oil fanatics.
