Could it be all those emissions are from that Barnett Shale “clean energy” natural gas production?

Long-Term Ozone Exposure and MortalityNew England Journal of Med article on ozone and higher death risk:
Long-Term Ozone Exposure and Mortality
Michael Jerrett, Ph.D., Richard T. Burnett, Ph.D., C. Arden Pope, III, Ph.D., Kazuhiko Ito, Ph.D., George Thurston, Sc.D., Daniel Krewski, Ph.D., Yuanli Shi, M.D., Eugenia Calle, Ph.D., and Michael Thun, M.D.
Conclusions In this large study, we were not able to detect an effect of ozone on the risk of death from cardiovascular causes when the concentration of PM2.5 was taken into account. We did, however, demonstrate a significant increase in the risk of death from respiratory causes in association with an increase in ozone concentration.
Low-level ozone exposure found to be lethal over time
An 18-year study shows an increased annual risk of death from respiratory illnesses, depending on the pollution level. It goes beyond studies that linked brief ozone spikes to short-term effects.

Thanks for showing this in such a graphic and disguting way, Sharon. It’s tragic to let this beautiful countryside be ruined and people’s health risked so that a company can enrich its executives and stockholders.
this is really tragic! i’ve been to greenwood to eat the burgers at the greenwood gro. and it’s such a lovely place. i have noticed through the years that the air quality is getting really bad out there.
