The Argyle – Bartonville Communities Alliance was recently formed in response to the latest threat to that community: DISH Part Deux, a facility that rivals the one in DISH, TX. The new group came out swinging with a letter to Tony Walker, Director, TCEQ Region 4.
Today their new blog has gone live.
I’m betting that, at this rate, Williams Petroleum will soon need to hire more “blog lookers.” See! Bloggers are helping to grow the economy.
If you live in the Argyle/Bartonville area, check out the new blog for instructions on how you can get involved in the fight to protect your community.
Note: When I drive through Argyle/Bartonville/Lantana it really hits home that environmental injustice now happens everywhere in the United States. It’s no longer confined to New Orleans or some remote African or Mexican village. We have devolved to 3rd world status even in the most affluent communities.

So, just wondering, how many people have to be concerned about this before we aren't a "fringe" group anymore, 1,000, 10,000, 100,000? Can someone in industry let us know, we just want to know how many more we need. It seems there are nearly as many groups with concerns as their are rigs now. There also seems to be a direct correlation between number of wells, and the number of people who oppose you.
They (oil and gas companies) obviously don't care how many of us are concerned because they don't live here and the regulations have been tilted in their favor. We have to put the pressure on our elected officials to oppose this infringement on our rights to our property, health, and our liberty.
These laws have become outdated and do not reflect the current conditions we are facing. No one with common sense would permit this kind of rampant destruction and complete disregard for environmental safety.
