Barnett Shale: An Aerial View
Watch this video to see what the Pickens Plan will do to America.
The following video contains a few of the 360 pictures taken on a short flight over small portions of Tarrant, Wise and Denton Counties. These pictures depict the destruction caused by natural gas production.
What is the fuss about drilling a Barnett Shale well? A Barnett well site with a drilling rig operating for three months has the same impact as a city of 4,000 people,- Water use, solid waste generation, air emissions and traffic. The O&G industry has been slow to realize this—that it has too big an impact on the environment. However, if we can reduce our environmental ‘footprint,’ we can realize better returns on our investments and cause less fuss in the community. That is a win-win for everyone.

The water use is not sustainable!
Earthquakes caused by drilling activity are a fact!
From Oklahoma State University Energy Symposium Slide #26:
As a reader said: "...all this destruction, so extensive, is for
something that is mostly gone in about the time it takes a kitten to
If you are in one of the pink areas, RUN.
Natural gas is just another dirty fossil fuel NOT an alternative fuel.
