Again, thank you to David for this video.
Here’s what Wilma Subra said about the DISH health study.
Wilma Subra is a MacArthur “Genius” Award winning scientist.
Here’s what Ed Ireland said about the DISH health study:
“The state has provided answers that can unequivocally assure residents of Dish and the Barnett Shale-area-at-large of the safety of natural gas operations in the region and eliminate concerns about benzene levels in their air and blood,”
Ed Ireland is NOT a scientist.

For all of those who trust government, rest easy.
Tim Ruggiero says
Ed Ireland who? Oh, that's right, the Economist Ed Ireland. Of the Jackass variety.
How close to a sour gas well does Ed Ireland live? Or how close to a amine gas plant, compressor station, or pipeling, or, or, or, etc.?? If they never "drilled through his living room", he's not qualified!!
Tim Ruggiero says
I think you'll notice that most, if not all of the gas drilling proponents that are forever touting how great it is are rarely found living with any stage of this dirty and dangerous business. I would challenge any one of them who are also surfing through this blog to respond that they do have a drilling rig, condensate tank battery, pipelines, compressor stations, truck traffic, frac tanks, etc., anywhere near their home-no more than the 300 feet, of course, they think is acceptable for the rest of us.
So what are the facts about smoking and high levels of these chemicals in the body for smokers? According to TCEQ's smoke screen logic every smoker has high levels of these chemicals, that should be easy to disprove!
From TCEQ, if your a smoker, you just dont matter!
You cant get around the fact more than 50% of tested Dish residence show chemical contamination!
There is one other thing that Ed Ireland ISN'T. "Intelligent"
You bought cheap land in a town with weak ordinances. You got what you paid for, buddy. Who's fault is that?
Okay cowardly anonymous poster, so in your twisted world view, the only Americans who deserve to have any property rights are the ones who buy what, expensive property in town? That's nice. Where does that leave the people who grow your food? We all know how much you love to eat.
Tim Ruggiero says
Actually, I bought somewhat expensive land with no ordinances-we're unincorportated. Anonymous, you're just another hole digger with a big mouth, no name and a very small set of….facts. BTW, how did you know my name is Timmy? Oh, that's right, I actually post it all the time, along with my address: 415 Star Shell Rd in Decatur. You should stop by anytime, we can discuss your 'facts'. While you're here, I'll show you how to write your name.
Timmy got the property rights that he purchased, which apparently did not include minerals. Someone else has those rights and chose to exercise them. And judging by his claims of how terribly the mineral rights owner treated him, he must have done something to really piss them off.
Dear Anonymous Cowardly Poster
Once again, you show how little you actually KNOW and how much you ASSume.
The mineral owner has been quoted saying how much he hates Aruba and he weeps openly about what has happened out there. Before this, he did not know Tim and Christine.
As I'm sure you know, the mineral owner has no control over the well placement or anything else once they have signed over their mineral rights.
You who are so eager to blame people who do not have their mineral rights are just making sure that NO ONE in Texas will be able to sell land. You, Anonymous Cowardly Poster, expose your ignorance and short sightedness in persecuting the victim rather then advocating for best practices.
Your solution: LOOSE/LOOSE
Exposed to brain damaging chemicals much?
I suggest you take Tim up on his offer and go see for yourself. Maybe Reilly can help you learn to write your name.
Tim Ruggiero says
Actually, the mineral right owner has gone around telling everyone that he had no control over the lease since he signed it away some 40 years ago. In reality, he got the lease back just two years ago, and apparently was only thinking of himself when he exluded 50 acres around his home (that already sits on hundreds of acres) from gas well drilling and pipelines. 300 feet for the rest of us. Now why would you think I might have an issue with that when I have 10 acres? Sorry, HAD 10 acres. Now we have 7, thanks to the people who think like you do. We're so desperate for natural gas, ruining other people's property, spilling THOUSANDS of gallons of proprietary carcinogens and permanantly contaminating BILLIONS of gallons of water has become mainstay. By the way, the boob that is supposedly in charge of operations around here also has 10 acres AND owns the mineral rights, but no drilling on his property, either. Why? He doesn't want his small children exposed to the danger. He signed off on exposing my child to the danger, though, and makes up complete lies to justify it.
From I've seen from the Trinity Ground Water Protection documents, it appears that the mineral right owner himself now has issues with the spiller driller, otherwise known as Aruba Petroleum, James L. Poston, president of ruining other people's property values, 555 Republic Dr, Plano, TX.
Until you are actually in my position, your really have nothing to support your position. Just because the law makes the mienral right owners dominant over the property owners hardly begins to mean that it is right or ethical. Perhaps I should be grateful the law also doesn't mean people like yourself can move into my home and make yourself comfortable after along day of dumping cancer causing fluids all over the place.
Tim Ruggiero says
Attention ALL 'Anonymous' posters: I'm done with you, and will no longer be responding to anything. You simply do not exist anymore, and I deem you irrelevant to the conversation.
If we cannot have meaningful discourse, and even sometimes simply to agree to disagree, and you simply don't have either enough courage or common decency to use your name, then I really don't have ears to hear anything you say. All you seem to be good for is name calling, distortion of the truth and complete fabrication of what's really happening. Quite frankly, I'm tired of people like you who while you're ruining and digging up other people's land, running around thumping your chest over your so-called rights.
If it were up to me, you wouldn't be able to post 'anonymously'. You simply aren't part of the equation when you do. When you post anonymously, for the sole purpose of name-calling, personal attacks, misstatements of the truth or flat out lies, then that's what the justification is for when stupid falls out of yur mouth, which seems to be, judging by your posts, most of the time.
Are you afraid for me to know who you are? I can find out, very easily. Every time you post, your leave your IP address. This also gives me the GPS coordinates. Two clicks, and I can see your place on Google Earth. But only if I really wanted to know.
When you post anononmously, I assume you are either a greedy and unethical mineral right owner, a hole digger, or the former Mayor of Flower Mound or the current Mayor of Ft. Worth.
Thanks for taking the time to read my lasty communication withy you. You're free to go back to digging, now.
"555 Republic Dr, Plano, TX" Hmmm, not very many gas wells over there, must be nice!
