    The first U.S. oil well was drilled in Pennsylvania more than 150 years ago. Millions more followed, dotting the country from Southern California to Texas, Oklahoma and Appalachia. But those wells don't last forever. In fact, a well only produces a significant quantity of natural gas for between 20 to 40 years. After that, the company that owns the well is supposed to plug it with cement to prevent it from releasing methane into the air and leaking contaminants into the groundwater or at the surface. But it's an expensive process, costing thousands of dollars for onshore wells and millions for offshore wells. Oil giants like Chevron and ExxonMobil have the funds to plug their wells. But small, less well-financed operators often can't afford to do so. Others go bankrupt, leaving wells "orphaned," and then the plugging responsibility falls to the government. Steve Feldgus, the deputy assistant secretary for Land and Minerals Management at the U.S. Department of the Interior, says that there's no way to estimate the exact number of the country's orphaned wells. "States have counted about...
    Legend has it a humanoid creature covered in fur inhabits the forested areas along the west coast of the northern US and although stories of this mythical monster have been told since the 1800s, no one has been able to prove its existence. The closest and most compelling evidence of Bigfoot was captured in 1967, when Bob Gimlin and Roger Patterson shot footage of a furry figure walking through Bluff Creek in Northern California. The grainy, one-minute clip has sparked many investigations into its authenticity and DailyMail.com received an early look of the History Channel’s ‘The Proof is Out There’ that dissects the famous film with the hopes of solving the mystery – was the figure someone in a suit or really Bigfoot? ‘The Proof is Out There’ episode about Bigfoot will run tonight at 10pm ET. The show has brought on a team of experts to use the latest and greatest technology for this mission, including artificial intelligence and computer vision algorithms. ‘We are trying to figure out the origins of man, the big bang, evolution and if God...
    The hiker who claims to have spoken to Brian Laundrie on the Appalachian Trial has told DailyMail.com how his 'heart dropped' when he realized he had come face-to-face with the man suspected of killing Gabby Petito.   Dennis Davis, 53, says he was stopped by Laundrie around 12.30am Saturday morning on a deserted road near the Tennessee/North Carolina border - 700 miles away from where the 23-year-old fugitive was last seen near his home in North Point, Florida. Showing DailyMail.com where he encountered Laundrie in his first video interview, Davis said he didn't realize it was him at first, until about 15 minutes later when he pulled up a photo of him, saw the matching beard and mustache and immediately dialed 911 and the FBI.     'When I first saw him I kind of thought he was on drugs because he was acting weird,' Davis told DailyMail.com of their interaction, adding that Laundrie spoke of heading to California to see his 'girlfriend'.  'But as I thought about it, I don't necessarily think he was on drugs because he was talking very clearly. And...
    California Gov. Gavin Newsom's campaign expects to sail to victory in Tuesday's recall race, where voters will decide whether to oust the Democrat and replace him with a Republican - the most likely being conservative radio show host Larry Elder.  'There's no scenario where we lose tomorrow,' Newsom campaign adviser Sean Clegg told reporters Monday night in Long Beach, before Newsom was joined by President Joe Biden for a final rally. 'I may have a lot of Clegg on my face tomorrow, but I don't see a scenario where we're not talking about a victory for the governor,' he jokingly added. The campaign's boast came after Newsom saw a steady five-week ascent in the polls after they appeared deadlocked in early August among those who wanted to keep Newsom and those who wanted to see him replaced.  California Gov. Gavin Newsom's (left) campaign believes he'll sail to victory in Tuesday's recall race in the state.

    (CNN)The dozens of wildfires that have scorched the western US this summer have consumed on average 30 square miles —almost half the size of Washington, DC— on a daily basis, the US Drought Monitor said Thursday.And there's little evidence that relief is in sight, with forecasts for dangerous, dry thunderstorms this weekend in Northern California, home to the nation's largest wildfire. Why wildfires happen: Debunking the myth that arson is to blame more than climate change"Little or no precipitation fell on most of the (Western) region, and drought intensity remained unchanged from last week in most areas," the monitor said, noting that the dryness, exacerbated by periods of intense heat, "has led to the rapid development and expansion of wildfires." Since early June, the fires have burned an area "approaching half the size of Washington, DC.," according to the monitor, which is produced through a partnership between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the US Department of Agriculture, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.Overall, there are currently 104 active fires, according to the National Interagency Fire Center. The largest fire is...
    By RYAN PEARSON | The Associated Press LOS ANGELES  — Songwriter Diane Warren stepped in Thursday to save the life of cow that eluded capture for more than a day after a herd escaped from a Southern California slaughterhouse and stampeded through a suburb. The Grammy-winning artist contacted the city of Pico Rivera to arrange to have the cow sent to the Farm Sanctuary north of Los Angeles, Warren and City Manager Steve Carmona said. Carmona said the City Council had already authorized him to open a dialogue about the cow with the owner of the slaughterhouse when Warren stepped in. He said the transfer was dependent on a state agriculture health check. “Cows are very smart, empathetic animals. I mean, they knew there was a door open,” said Warren, who has been a vegetarian for 23 years. “This morning, I woke up and I saw there was one cow that hadn’t been caught yet — and they’re trying to catch her and getting close to her. I saw her crying out and I couldn’t unsee that.” Warren, who wrote...

    After a particularly wet week, Californians shouldn’t hang up their snow shovels and raincoats just yet. Those in Southern California should expect 1 to 8 inches of snow to fall in the mountainous areas of Ventura and Los Angeles counties between late Tuesday and Wednesday night, said Kathy Hoxsie, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. Elsewhere in Los Angeles County, one-quarter to one-half of an inch of rain is forecast to fall, with 3/4 inches expected in the foothills, Hoxsie said. This comes after 18 to 24 inches of snow fell at Mt. Baldy — whose levels mirror those of the San Gabriel Mountains — between Jan. 26 and 29, Hoxsie said, helping make up for what has been a particularly dry winter. Mt. Wilson saw 7 inches of snow at 5,700 feet. Northern California saw even more snow: between 4 and 7 feet in the Sierra Nevada, said Idamis Del Valle, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento. The winter storm washed out a portion of Highway 1 along Big Sur...
    Hollywood powerbrokers are offering doctors $10,000 bribes to skip California's vaccine queues and get the coronavirus jab. One top Beverly-Hills medical practice claimed it has received dozens of offers from individuals - including entertainment stars - desperate to be vaccinated. The situation is so bad that one senior entertainment executive described it as like the 'Hunger Games' as the rich and famous 'fight for their lives' to get the jab and bypass California's sluggish vaccination rollout. Reports say some rich and famous people have been going to great lengths to skip the queue with private and boutique physicians, concierge health services, private flights to Florida for vaccine tourism.  Beverly Hills-based Dr Robert Huizenga, known for being actor Charlie Sheen's physician, told Variety his practice has been offered in excess of $10,000 by the elite who are desperate for the jab.  Beverly Hills-based Dr Robert Huizenga, known for being actor Charlie Sheen's physician, said his practice has been offered in excess of $10,000 by the elite who are desperate for the jab The rich and famous in Los Angeles, California, are...
    A video has emerged of 'Soho Karen' Miya Ponsetto hitting out at officers while she was arrested for her DUI months before she went viral for accusing a black teen of theft.  The woman, 22, can be heard screaming 'There are gang members killing people right now and you're arresting a girl?!' while cops attempt to cuff her and get her in the back of a police car.  A bystander captured the video in October 2020 during which she is seen resisting arrest and questioning why she is being handcuffed, claiming 'I didn't do anything'.   The video comes as Ponsetto arrived back in LA yesterday after leaving New York where she was arraigned on assault charges for attacking 14-year-old Keyon Harrold Jr, claiming he stole her phone.

DLive/CultureWarCrimnal/Twitter/Courtesy of Nic Mattson/Atascadero News A group of young men livestreamed themselves tearing down the mysterious metal monolith that appeared in California.

    “We have done an incredible job environmentally,” President Trump said in the last presidential debate, believe it or not. That was a bit like Genghis Khan saying, “We’ve done really good work in Eurasia.” As we slog toward the finish line in the most high-stakes, nerve-rattling presidential election in my lifetime, the pandemic and its impact on the economy are exactly where they should be on the list of issues that will decide the outcome — at or near the top. But I’m certain — or hopeful, I should say — that whoever prevails, we’ll get past the virus at some point, and the economy will one day hum again. When that happens, though, the planet will still be warming at an alarming rate. And if President Trump is reelected, we can be quite sure he will do more irreversible damage to the natural environment and to climate change initiatives. Two weeks ago, citing analysis by the law schools at Harvard and Columbia universities, the New York Times identified nearly 100 environmental protections and climate policies the Trump administration...
    The sister of a California woman who claims she went missing in Zion National Park for 12 days with ‘no food and a tiny amount of water’ has revealed the mother-of-one had a ‘breakdown’ and has since checked herself into a clinic to be treated for mental illness. Holly Courtier, 38, was suddenly found in the park on October 18 disheveled, pounds lighter, with a concussion, kidney failure, foot injuries and suffering from severe dehydration, according to her family. What Courtier had intended to be a solo spiritual pilgrimage in the Utah wilderness quickly turned into a fight for her life, her sister Jaime Courtier Strong said.  Just under two weeks earlier, Courtier had left her Los Angeles home in the middle of the night and departed for Utah in her car. Strong said Courtier intended to go completely off grid. The 38-year-old left behind her cell phone and did not tell any of her family members of where she was heading. ‘She definitely was having a mental breakdown,’ Strong told The Spectrum. ‘She told us later she was seeking...
    The California Secretary of State and Department of Justice have sent a cease and desist order to the state's Republican Party after they admitted to placing illegal boxes for 'friends, family, and patrons to drop off their ballot with someone they know and trust.' California Secretary of State Alex Padilla issued a memo Sunday telling county registrars that 'in short, providing unauthorized, non-official vote-by-mail ballot drop boxes is prohibited by state law' and that ballots must be mailed or brought to official voting locations. But on Monday, state GOP spokesman Hector Barajas said that the party owns the unofficial boxes which have been labeled 'official' and has no plans to remove them. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra described the non-compliance as 'disturbing.'

    (CNN)California fire crews have spent the summer going from one fire to another as the state contends with a record-shattering wildfire season that is still weeks away from its potential end. The Glass Fire in Napa and Sonoma counties and the Zogg Fire in Shasta County are raging out of control in the northern part of the state since igniting on Sunday, bringing more distress to a fire season that has already produced five of the six largest wildfires in California's history. "It's been a long season, most of (the firefighters) been going since the middle of July, without rest from fire to fire to fire here in the northern part of the state," said Cal Fire Incident Commander Billy See.Residents, meanwhile, are feeling the strain of evacuating multiple times as fires spread through new and previously threatened territory, Sonoma County Sheriff Mark Essick said.The California city of Calistoga is evacuated as the Glass Fire closes inMore than 2,000 fire personnel are battling the Glass Fire, which has consumed 46,600 acres and destroyed at least 82 buildings.

    As children begin school in Los Angeles on Thursday, public education is among Americans’ top priorities, and most believe students should continue their education through some form of distance learning, a national poll has found. More than half, 54%, of the 2,200 adults surveyed said public school education should be a top priority for local officials, along with COVID-19, health care, the economy and safety/crime, according to the poll conducted by Morning Consult, a private company that does national political polling. Nearly the same share of adults, 52%, said they opposed reopening K-12 schools for in-person instruction in fall 2020 amid the pandemic, and close to 80% said they believed hybrid, online-only or home-school instruction would be most beneficial for students. Notably, some of these respondents wanted to persist with online education despite also saying that parenting had become more stressful because of COVID-19 and that the pandemic had forced them to become more involved in their children’s education. Roughly three-quarters of respondents said the pandemic had exacted tolls on instructional quality in schools and students’ access to free or...
    SACRAMENTO —  Gov. Gavin Newsom would be anointed a kingmaker — or queenmaker — if Joe Biden selected California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate. That’s because Newsom, on his own, would select Harris’ Senate replacement if the Democratic presidential ticket won on Nov. 3. The U.S. Constitution gives governors that right. If Biden instead chose another Californian, U.S. Rep. Karen Bass of Los Angeles, Newsom would not have a formal role in her replacement. Voters in her 37th Congressional District would select a new representative in a special election. And that would alter the L.A. political landscape. So for Newsom and California, there’s a lot more riding on Biden’s decision than who fills out the Democratic presidential ticket. Harris and Bass are among the women on the presumptive presidential nominee’s short list of potential running mates. Others include former national security advisor Susan Rice, Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. There’s heavy political pressure for Biden to choose a woman of color. That presumably leaves out Warren, who is white. Warren is too liberal for...
    Joe Rogan, host of one of the most popular podcasts on the planet, said that he decided to move from Los Angeles, California, to Texas because he wanted "a little bit more freedom." Rogen explained further the decisions behind his move during his podcast conversation with guest Joe De Sena, the CEO and founder of Spartan and the Death Race. "I'm outta here," said Rogan when De Sana asked him about moving. "I'm gonna go to Texas." "I just want to go somewhere in the center of the country, somewhere it's easier to travel to both places, and somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom," he explained. "Also I think that um, where we live right here in Los Angeles is overcrowded. And I think, most of the time that's not a problem. But I think it's exposing the fact that it's a real issue, when you look at the number of people that uh, are catching COVID because of this overpopulation issue," Rogan continued. ...
