Drill Rig Erected Behind Selwyn School in Denton

More bad news for Denton. It seems the drillers see that their world may soon be more appropriately regulated so they want to do as much dirty drilling as possible before those regulations are in place.

A rig is being erected behind the Selwyn School in Denton, Texas. Selwyn already sits in the worst part of Denton’s worst air. Do we really think it’s a good idea to further pollute the air where our children play.

Yesterday I posted about the seismic in South Lakes Park and today Range Resources got the go ahead on their 5 wells.

Meanwhile, Fort Worth is again calling for a drilling moratorium. These are interesting times.

This is an outrage. The natural gas industry apparently isn't satisfied belching toxic fumes at our home 24 hours a day as it is, so now they erect another gas well behind my daughter's school so that she along with 114 other CHILDREN can get blasted with toxic fumes while they play outside and attend class inside.

The gas compnaies have no shame, no common decency, and certainly no respect for anyone, inlcuding children and this gas well next to the school is proof of that.
