Hydraulic fracturing of the Whitehead/Hillwood well next to the Argyle Intermediate School began a few days ago. The ABCAlliance has a great video of the chemical laden silica sand blowing right toward the school.
We need Ross Perot, Principal of Hillwood International Energy, to bring some of his charts and graphs to show us in whose world it is okay to expose our children to these processes. Maybe the leaders of Argyle who were unresponsive at a recent council meeting when asked to consider a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing permits can participate.
Remember, Dr. Theo Colborn says, “Air is the pathway of most concern,” so keep your children and pets inside until this is over.
Argyle residents should be on the lookout for drilling mud in their water. It will look like what you see in this video: Water contaminated shortly after hydraulic fracture Also be on the lookout for what you see here: Hydraulic Fracturing turns gardenhose to flamethrower

Oh, let me add: Please Mr. Perot, one of your employees seems to think the fracking fluid is only sand and water. That’s not true and I’m sure you know.
“Industry spokespeople claim that 0.5% of frack fluid is comprised of chemical agents but Earthworks’ research shows that companies can use as much as 40 tons of chemicals for every million gallons of water they use for fracking.” citations HERE.
