The fracking rumor mill says that Dallas is considering a 300 foot setback for their drilling ordinance.
Despite all the information presented to the Dallas Drilling Task Force and all the emerging science, Dallas seems to be in a race for the bottom of the heap. Even the International Energy Agency (IEA) says: Legitimate public concerns over fracking must be addressed.
