Travel Plans

Just wanted everyone to know that I plan to travel to New York in February to visit those in the Marcellus Shale. I plan to give a couple of presentations while I am up there. Hopefully, my schedule will be set soon. I will pass on when and where the presentations will be. If anyone else in that area would like to visit with me, please let me know.

I will also be doing a presentations for the North Central Texas Communities Alliance on January 7, 2010. For more information go to http://www.nctca.net/.

Community Health Survey Shows Shale Gas Threatens Human Health

EARTHWORKS * Texas Oil & Gas Accountability Project * Town of DISH

DISH, Texas, 12/17 -- Today, public interest groups and the Town of DISH released the final results of a health survey of area residents focused on the impacts of Barnett Shale gas infrastructure. The results show that more than half of surveyed maladies can be attributed to toxics first revealed in September in a DISH-commissioned study of area air quality. Based on the results, EARTHWORKS, the Texas Oil & Gas Accountability Project and the Town of DISH are calling on state regulators to immediately perform an in-depth health investigation, implement continuous 24-hour emissions monitoring, and establish a same-day community odor and symptom tracking system."
