You really should do something about it.
I rented a van in Dallas yesterday to take some solar executives on a tour of the Barnett Shale (Aside: it is much easier to obtain a permit to drill a nasty gas well than it is to get a permit to put a solar panel on your roof. As far as I know, solar panels don’t give people cancer or blow up.) During the rental and return process, I encountered several people who said, “What’s a Barnett Shale,” when I told them what I would be doing with the van.
This is your fracking wake up call, Dallas!
If you don’t
what want THIS COMPANY drilling in your neighborhood and if you don’t what to live next to this… Put down the remote control and get you self to this meeting on Thursday. You can bet that the Big Gas Mafia will give their employees a mandatory notice that they must attend this meeting.

Dallas City Hall wants to know how you feel about gas drilling.
The Dallas Gas Drilling Task Force is preparing new recommendations in order to deliver to the Dallas City Council. They want to hear your concerns. What do you want in the new gas ordinance? Here are a few suggestions you may want to request that the city consider:
3000 foot set back from homes, schools, hospitals, businesses
24/7 Air monitoring with info on city hall web site
A BIG charge for using Dallas water to frack with millions of gallons of our water
No gas drilling pad sites next to rivers, streams, lakes
Baseline testing of air and water BEFORE drilling
Full disclosure of chemicals used in fracking. No hidden lists.
A full time City of Dallas gas inspector. No sharing with other cities.
No pipelines, in residential areas.
No injection wells in the CITY OF DALLAS
You can also email your suggestions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
