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.

Emissions from Natural Gas Production in the Barnett Shale Area and Opportunities for Cost-Effective Improvements

The water use is not sustainable!


Earthquakes caused by drilling activity are a fact!

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
grow up."

If you are in one of the pink areas, RUN.

Natural gas is just another dirty fossil fuel NOT an alternative fuel.

New analysis shows warming could be double previous estimates

The most comprehensive modeling yet carried out on the likelihood of how much hotter the Earth's climate will get in this century shows that without rapid and massive action, the problem will be about twice as severe as previously estimated six years ago - and could be even worse than that.

With this new information, we should reconsider increased production of a fossil fuel that consists of the most powerful greenhouse gas, METHANE. Just say no to the PIckens Plan,

It's always "not in my backyard". Look folks either we do something with our own resources or keep going the way we are dependent on other countries who can turn off the spiket at whim. It's always the goodie two shoes who cry out to do something and then say "not in my backyard". Like the idiots in Brookfield, CT who are so concerned about some stupid turtles which are not on the endangered list I might add and has forced the CT DOT to build a turtle tunnel under a bridge so the turtles can tranverse Route 7 from one side of the road to the other without becoming road kill. Did I mention the tunnel has lights in it ? Yep your and my tax dollars at work. OINK !
