The San Diego Union-Tribune calls on California Gov. Jerry Brown to tap the state's huge shale oil resources; the Monterrey formation is believed to contain 15.4B barrels of recoverable crude, four times as much as North Dakota's Bakken. But California has committed to getting a third of its energy from renewable sources by 2020, and risks getting left behind as the rest of the world digs into shale.
