In my opinoin, the government in California is not too aewsome to threaten this arrogance; the government only benefits on tax and extraction income of oil producers, they aren't concerned about on focus on what people's feeling is or what they have often conplained about.
As money comes from oil producers, many oil producers are becoming richer and richer; at the same time the environment is becoming worse and worse. They didn't spend money on protecting the environment. Hopefully, the government will realize the big problem coming to people rapidly, and put the money which is from the tax of oil producers in MMS.
Although the government has reduced oil producers' drilling offshore, oil producers still go against the policy to drill on the plains. As they are happy from the incoming money, they damage people's houses, they make people homeless, and they produce pollution underground to make earth become decomposed and corroded.
In conclusion, oil producers should think about all people who live on the same earth. As they drill oil and gas crazily, they not only destroy other people's houses, but also destroy their houses. As the article said, we should get cozy by living with each other.
