I like the way they put that.
I received an email this morning from a friend who made some good points so I used those for my comment at Dallas Blog:
Notice that TCEQ says in one breath that exposure to high levels of benzene for one year will cause cancer then next breath they say it will take 5 years to get new laws in place.
Also, Chesapeake says it’s not us because our gas is uber clean. Yet they have to run a pipeline through the front yards of poor folks who live on Carter Ave because that clean gas is so dirty it has to be processed.
Also notice that the media, TCEQ and Big Gas only mention the benzene and completely ignore the neurotoxins. That way they can say we don’t have any health effects. They can’t say that about the neurotoxins. I mentioned to the WFAA reporter, Chris Hawes, that Dr. Theo Colborn says the neurotoxins are of most concern. Chris Hawes says, “Who is Dr. Colborn?”
Peggy Heinkel-Wolfe reported on the Barnett Shale emissions on May 30, 2006. But suddenly it’s “Breaking News.”
Someone please call Chesapeake out on their claim that their gas has no toxic emissions. There is NO BASIS IN FACT for that statement.
Also order one of Dr. Colborn’s FREE DVDs.
