Hosted by

The forests of derricks are gone from Southern California, and production is on the decline. But new extraction techniques may open the massive Monterey Shale Formation, creating another oil boom. Will the jobs and the money be worth the consequences of fracking and acid-ization?

Also tonight, Mike Feuer’s been Los Angeles City Attorney for more than 100 days. We’ll ask him about enforcing new limits on medical marijuana dispensaries and preventing gang injunctions from violating civil rights.
