From The Shorthorn
How do you defend the indefensible? Sandra DenBraber has toxic compounds in her blood that match air testing from the Carrizo natural gas extraction facility that is only 600′ from her home. What possible defense could there be for that?
Carrizo’s answer is to throw money at the problem.
And it seems to be working according to UTA university spokeswoman Kristin Sullivan.
NEWS FLASH: When there are videos showing fugitive emissions unchecked and when the toxic compounds from your product end up in residents’ blood, anyone who says Carrizo has shown “an unwavering commitment to the responsible development of the university’s natural gas resources” is nothing but a shill. Is that the kind of reasoning and logic they teach at UTA? UTA needs to get a clue and take an ethical position on this. Their response is reprehensible!
At least THIS EDITORIAL in The Shorthorn has a different idea.
As a company that provides the drilling service that provides gas to Texas residents, it is their responsibility to ensure they are not endangering the families or students near their wells.
