EPA says,perhaps 1-million 'orphaned' oil&gas wells

Here's more of capitalism's dark under belly.
You marry your nation to petroleum,then when prices tank,operators go belly-up,abandon their wells,leaving the taxpayer to pay for proper capping of the wells.
$2.88/foot-to-$31.73/foot.
In Wyoming,costs run from $569-to-$527,829 per well,depending.
That will be hard to do with solar and wind.
