Deborah Rogers is one of the speakers tonight at the Fort Worth League of Women Voters. Her call for a moratorium on natural gas drilling is an extremely important message to all residents that wish to protect the future of Fort Worth. Please show your support for this effort by attending this meeting. The time to act is now.
UPDATE: From Don Young, “A faint aroma of Hope”
I’m not one to lean on hope to heavily. Action works better for me.
But the recent arrival of Deborah Rogers into the Barnett Shale gas wars is inspiring. She has dared to utter the “M” word in a town overcome by foolish greed. She has boldly questioned the idea of turning Fort Worth into a giant industrial village.
Fort Worth needed a Moratorium years ago but elected officials, the Star-Telegram, Chamber of Commerce and a variety of civic organizations conspired with gas drillers to suppress such an idea.
Now, the City of FW’s grand experiment has allowed almost 2,000 gas wells to be placed in our town. Thousands more on the way, UNLESS we fight back. Deborah Rogers has gotten the ear of the power brokers. Hope is in the air.
She will speak tonight at the FWLNA meeting. It should be be a watershed moment in the gas wars. Put on your war bonnet, apply your war paint and SHOW UP.
