I’ve told you before, dear readers, how T. Boone Pickens wants us to convert everything to natural gas so that when all the water is either used up from fracking or fracked up from fracking, he can sell us water from all those water rights he has purchased. Now he is trying to have the law changed to assist him.
T. Boone Pickens’ water company is urging the Texas Supreme Court to model state water law after Texas laws that govern oil and gas. Pickens’ water-law scheme is a recipe for disaster if you don’t happen to be an octogenarian billionaire.
From Texans for Public Justice:
I recommend that you read this report, every word, only if you care anything at all about access to water.
