From the Dallas Drilling Blog: THEY’RE BACK!
In a shocking move, Trinity East Energy has filed an appeal with the Dallas City Planning Commission and has won a secondary hearing scheduled for Thursday, January 10th at 1:30 pm at Dallas City Hall.
Why should Dallas parents be concerned?

- New study: Tiny doses of chemicals used in drilling and fracking have big health effects
- Study finds living near fracking is risky for health
- Emerging concern: Are Gas Patch residents at greater risk of heart attack?

Natural gas facilities leak Volatile Organic Compounds VOCs at every stage of production and they leak a lot more than we thought. The VOCs end up in your body and make you sick—VERY SICK.
Rashes like the one on this young boy are common. His doctor told the family to “Get out of that house, now!”
Industry will tell you that I am wrong. See for yourself.
Disturbing videos show massive VOC leaks from Chesapeake Fort Worth facility in a neighborhood right next to a park.
Here is another video of the same facility.
Here is a video of a Chesapeake facility venting flowback in Fort Worth right behind the Old Pancake House restaurant, off university in Fort, Worth, TX.
Chesapeake tells the public that these flowback vapors are just steam from hot water but air testing prove it contains dangerous chemicals. But, Deadly flowback vapors killed 21-year-old Montana man.
This video is a Devon facility on Jim Baker Road in Denton County just west of Dish, Texas.
You can see even more videos at these links. Barnett Shale: TCEQ Videos Show Fugitive Emissions and TCEQ videos show VOC emissions in Eagle Ford Shale. At this link, Dr. Colborn and TCEQ comment on what you see with the infrared technology cameras
But that’s not all. These facilities don’t just leak, they are allowed to vent toxins into the air and there is NOTHING anyone can do about it. They call them accidental and scheduled releases and no one really knows how much VOCs are released.
What you can do to stop Dallas from fracking your children.
Check the poisonous scorecard HERE to see who in Dallas wants to frack your children. Then show up at Dallas City Hall, Thursday, January 10th at 1:30 PM and tell them they can’t frack your children.
If you live in the gas patch, Someone, somewhere decides who suffers. Don’t let it be your children.

Mini documentaries about real people who live near fracking. https://www.youtube.com/user/gasrushstories
Oil and gas industry lobbyists are maneuvering to block Coloradans who live near drill sites from talking about their experiences during a rule-making hearing next week.
Colorado Oil and Gas Association and Colorado Petroleum Association legal motions argue that state laws and procedural rules bar state commissioners from hearing written or oral testimony from the residents because it would be improper, “abusive and harassing” or irrelevant.
This industry is outrageous and pathetic.
You guys do remember what happened the last time the council allowed public comment, right?
