Considering the overwhelming evidence:
- DISH TX
- The health survey results released yesterday by Texas OGAP: Shale Gas Threatens Human Health
this is a stunning reckless vote by, Dixon, Levenick, and Wallace, 3 members of Flower Mound’s council, .
5 children and 2 adults in the same area have leukemia and they all live or lived within 2 miles of the drilling.
I heard through the Grapevine that
Williams and Chesapeake the Barnett Shale Mafia had lawyers there and, at least, 10 Williams employees spoke. Read more…
Right now industry is rushing to drill up as much as possible before the TCEQ final results are released. Watch for the drilling permits to come pouring into Flower Mound.
UPDATE: Chris Hawes, WFAA, was there last nigh. HERE’s her report.

The three council members chose money over the health and safety of their residents. Are these people living in a cave. Haven’t they been watching what is going on all around them. When the TCEQ and the EPA take the time to do studies, you know they are concerned and everyone should be. Why not wait just a little bit longer till the test results and recommendations were released One of the council members who denied the suspension has signed a lease with Williams. Conflict of interest?
