Argyle Central made me sick Friday

Friday I took a reporter on a tour of the Barnett Shale. I always take reporters to see Williams’ gas processing plant on Jeter because it’s incredibly shocking to see this kind of heavy industrial process right in people’s backyards.

We took some pictures:

We did a short video interview.

Then we both got sick from the fumes. She got a headache and felt shaky. I was very dizzy and my throat tightened.

    I saw this a few weeks ago. Hard to believe how close the homes are to it. Sorry you got sick. Terrible for the people living so close to it. This is evil.
