No wonder California is having trouble meeting their energy needs. They have been using completed-well oil lifting pumpjacks as drilling equipment!
Using oil lifting pumpjacks for drilling?

Their electrical grid can't meet demand and yet they think they will go all EV by 2035, what a pipe dream. ace.gif

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

Not sure you got it. The caption calls the pumps drills. So, if they are trying to drill with the pumps, it's not going to work. At least, I think that's it. I'm no oil expert.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities

Not sure what there is to "get". Pump jacks are not used for drilling, but to pump oil out of the well, duh. My comment, although I think it is completely accurate, was off topic, so very sorry. bawl.gif Not sure how it was funny though. confused.gif

Not sure of the topic of this thread. Is it to point out a miscaptioned photo in a news article? To point out that California has an energy crisis? (They don't right now after they filled all the reservoirs in the past year) To say they have an electrical grid problem? (California rates #35 in power grid reliability, compared to Washington at #40 and Idaho at #41)
