Fort Worth is”GASLAND”; could Dallas be next?

September 7, 2010

Once again, WFAA stepped up to the plate and did a great job of reporting about the air quality(OZONE) in the DFW region. Reporter Brett Shipp, found that Fort Worth air is gross, but Dallas is much better. Let’s hope that the super secret, super thick, invisible wall that sits between the two cities continues to hold back the western winds. The EPA is sending signals that the uptick in ozone is due POSSIBLY to the Barnett Shale wells.

Click this for the story.

Arlington city councilman, Mel”King of Denial” LeBlanc doesn’t believe the EPA study, since he is so much smarter than they. But that’s okay, Mel. That River Denial is a hard one to navigate on a full time basis.

So it should be interesting to see the following:

How does this study affect the City of Dallas and it’s plans for natural gas drilling? Will the invisible wall protect us ? Will the city take the high road in order to protect it’s citizens? Will the city even address the air quality of Dallas as it goes into the gas well review process? Will the City of Dallas even talk? We’re hoping that the media will ask these questions.  We’re anxiously waiting to hear what they have to say.

    The yucky air is from burning gasoline in cars. After all the good parts of the petroleum are taken for pharmaceuticals, plastics and all the other stuff I don’t know about, the leftover is sold for gasoline. Alcohol made from anything but corn will burn cleaner and be sustainable. There are crops that grow only on rainwater in TX.

      Then if that’s true, Dallas the larger city with cleaner air(at present)must have a lot fewer vehicles. FW must have such a larger number of vehicles to have such large ozone numbers as opposed to Dallas.
