Can you hear me now?

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
Maya Angelou

Many people ask, “what can I do?” or it’s “I’m really busy, I don’t have time”. The industry knows this, the politicians know this. Remember, you can cast a vote,  you can make a phone call, you can email, you can fax. “but I don’t have the number”, is another response.

Wrong. Here is the information you need. You have no excuse, no reason to cry, when they move in the gas well, when they don’t regulate the air quality,when they contaminate the water, when they poison your lives. Now, you cannot say you  did not know.

“I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.” Maya Angelou

Now you can call the city, you can ask:

“What are you doing to insure that the pursuit of natural gas in Dallas does not have an opportunity to harm my family, and our environment?”

“Why do you have an industry website on the city website without a citizen activist website?

“Why haven’t you had town hall meetings, press conferences announcing plans for drilling in Dallas?”

“Why did you begin this process two years ago and not ask for our input?”

“Courage: the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
Maya Angelou
