I woke abruptly this morning thinking about the citizens of DISH, all the neighbors living on top of Herb Wright’s 953 acres of minerals near the Ruggieros, Flower Mound, Fort Worth, Wise County, Denton and the entire Barnett Shale.
Industry is knowingly and willfully endangering our health. Test after test shows that fugitive emissions are occurring regularly and that those emission are TOXIC.
Cars not only culprit for smog
Gas drilling in the Barnett Shale doesn’t help

…a 2003 air quality study found extensive hydrocarbon pollution in North Texas, the kind commonly attributed to oil and gas extraction, according to Donald Blake, a University of California professor of atmospheric chemistry…
That article was written four years ago, but the testing by University of California was conducted in 2003 ! They’ve been studying this for SEVEN years and industry still continues to blow toxins at us.
The Ruggieros haven’t used their central heating system all winter because they don’t what to pull extra toxins into their home. This seems like a prudent thing to do unless there are some kind of filters to filter out the toxins. Maybe our schools should also consider this move.
