CHP Combined Heat & Energy projects on frack 2 FAIL – NG unsustainable – GO SOLAR !

CATEE – Clean Air Through Energy Efficiency Conference agenda is here. It will be held in Galveston on December 1-3 2015. Individual early bird rate for the three day conference is $375…yikes.

So the last part of the agenda for this conference I fear is nuthn’ but a PLOY to sell more NG power plant conversions…oh yeah and they have a CHP tour….woot woot….note sarcasm. The moderator is gas friends with HARC…who is friends with Mitchell, the father of fracking…..

How bout’ just retiring the “mature technologies” 

as natural gas is so old skool OfrackingK?

In looking at the other panelist, they look legit, but the American Council for an Efficient-Energy Economy (ACEEE) has the blessings of the American Gas ASSociation and Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc., so run the other way from CHP is all I gotta say.

Recently Denton is greenwashing nasty natural gas in an effort I believe to keep NG demand up so they can keep fracking us…they want to build a new…drum roll….natural gas powered plant.

Imaginea to solar power pump jacks and then add more panels once the oil peters out

Here is the video…this is in Canada by the way.

OK reality check….those two wells needed 192 panels and the recovery on the investment is ten years….on shady days they revert back to old school electricity and on good days the excess energy is sold to the grid….the best part is that more panels will go in as they retire the wells………those must be the old, conventional 30 year producing wells and NOT the horizontal, fracked, wells that peter out in a few years….

yep…I hate being right…….Screen shot 2015-10-09 at 10.06.08 AM

RIP Richard Rainwater did that golf course kill you?

I blog bout’ fracking and investigate some Tarrant County Barnett Shale early deaths, but the only connection there of Mr Rainwater was Fortune’s report on his fight for life article ... “To snatch up drilling assets at panic-sale prices and hand them to the oil patch’s most astute operator”.

I was so touched to learn of his concern about “the survivability of mankind.” And so I set out to find out if he lived by any gas wells (yes some rich people do live by those too)….I did find a property near a Golf Course bearing his last name on the tad records and wondered if he lived there….

Screen shot 2015-10-08 at 7.20.23 AM

And in New York, Mr Rainwater was said to be a member of the Deepdale Golf Club, so it would stand to reason that he might have lived near the one in FT Worth in the above picture? NOPE cause this link here shows his home to be….Screen shot 2015-10-08 at 8.58.17 AM

The article said that“He founded or co-founded firms including ENSCO International Incorporated, an oil field service and offshore drilling company in 1986…”  so he did have his hand in the gas/oil patch…anyways…….when you back out on the map…YEP he DID live by a golf course if this internet site is right…

A quick internet search on what type of pollution/poison may have exposed him (besides our fracked up airshed?) and I found this link from Uruguay…Pesticides and Parkinsonism: Is There a Link Between Environmental Toxins and Neurodegenerative Disorders?
Alan H. Lockwood, MD

Here are some quotes…“Nevertheless, the weight of the evidence gathered a decade ago suggests strongly that exposure to industrial chemicals, particularly pesticides, is a significant risk factor for the development of PD (Parkinsons)…We are awash in a sea of chemicals. According to the EPA, 4.5 billion pounds of pesticides are used in the US each year. We use 77 million pounds of organophosphates: 60 million pounds are used in agriculture and 17 million pounds are used in homes, on lawns and golf courses, and for other non-agricultural purposes”.

Mr Rainwater founded/funded… The Tau Consortium in 2010 to find a cure for his disease. “The Rainwater Charitable Foundation brought together a group of physicians and scientists to work in a precision medicine space to advance research into progressive supranuclear palsy…”.

Another PSP internet site asked if PSP could be caused by toxins?

  • “There is evidence that chemicals in the environment or diet may contribute to the cause of PSP. Surveys of PSP patients have hinted at a predilection for rural living and, on average, lesser educational attainment in people with PSP. This suggests that part of the cause of PSP is certain occupational factors exposing people to different chemicals than are encountered by non-rural people or those with more sedentary, office-bound occupations.One important clue to a possible dietary factor in the cause of PSP comes from the island of Guadeloupe in the Caribbean. People there are far more likely to develop PSP and other “atypical parkinsonisms” than are people elsewhere. A questionnaire survey on Guadeloupe revealed that people with PSP-like illnesses there were more likely than others to have consumed two native fruits called “sweetsop” and “soursop.” These fruits have since been shown to harbor toxins (annonacin) that when given to laboratory rats cause damage to the brain very similar to human PSP. We don’t yet know what, if any, foods in the Western diet contain similar toxins”.

In retrospect, affluent people searching for the truth in their afflictions should’ve try to prevent such exposures and use the Precautionary Principle (don’t wait on government agencies to protect you) and try to help mankind disband chemicals near life forms…yes this wouldn’t be good financial news for the natural gas industry (a feedstock for chemicals production)….but then again I do blog about taking down that harmful fracking industry and he did breathe our DFW Barnett Shale Hell air.

Rumor has it Chesapeake shopping out? its Utica assets…only a matter of time for the firesale in the Barnett Shale. Arlington’s predominent driller is vunerable to second tier driller.

Business Insider recently reported of Freeport-McMoRan….

A $12 billion commodities giant is thinking about ditching the oil business

And Oil Price reported today….

Six Reasons Natural Gas Prices Are Staying Down

So for now we need to scurry along fixn’ up our Arlington gaswell ordinance as advised by the Railroad Comission to regulate any of the “nuisance” things we risk residing in the Urban Drilling haven of money before citizen safety cause once the price of NG goes back up, the city will allow up to 900 more gas wells…from hell.

DFW Scanner reported Pantego / DWG Major Gas Leak Near Compression Station 10/3/15

I have  an Open Records Request on this…more info…if you smelt it…let me know.

For those that are asking us, major gas leak in Pantego/DWG”.


“Gas Leak (Pantego/DWG) Pantego Fire & Police and Dalworthington Gardens Fire & Police are working a major gas leak in the 3200 block of W Pioneer Parkway. Pioneer Parkway is closed in all directions between Smith Barry Rd and Roosevelt Dr. Traffic is a mess. Expect extended delays.”

So how big is this compressor station neatly tucked away in surrounding businesses?…..

Got H2S ? Got H-9 reporting?… only if in a known sour field…NUTHN’ 4 man-made H2S on soured gas wells

Someone was wanting to know what areas had the highest Hydrogen Sulfide content …

Do you trust the RRC? Here you go…find your RRC reporting district here and then this is their “reporting” link…..Hint….if your county like Tarrant of the Barnett Shale-who is said to NOT be in a sour gas field doesn’t show up on this list and therefore not mandated to turn in H-9 H2S reporting documents…

If you don’t have to turn in an H-9 doesn’t that mean H2S doesn’t exist?

Would you bet yer life on it?

Some of us don’t have a choice to even make that bet. I’ve smelled the rotten egg odor when the Chesapeake rig was up at General Motors. I know first hand that sulfur smell; I use to work in Noro LA. My nose knows an industrial smell….guess what…did you know when you have H2S so high in concentration that your nose can NOT detect it… BAM you’re dead!  Actually here is the threshold details from the RRC…

Sorry I get carried away with “risk” scenerios….hell you can choose to ride in a car or a plane at your own risk….but that is a risk “choice”…people can not choose if they want to co-exist near URBAN gaswells here in Arlington…they just ram it in yer neighborhood. Innocent children and renters get all the risk with no money reward…(like frack money will pay yer medical or early? funeral bills…ppffsh).

One thing I noticed (about Chesapeake) is that in two instances at two different drill sites an odor overtook the area and sickened people in Arlington and the excuse was “stale water”….I relate stale water to the risk of a man-made soured well in leaving frack water down there too long waiting to do green completions or waiting for crews to be available or whatever excuse they have for not flowing back right away.

Our RRC statewide rule 36 doesn’t provide for mandating a well be flowed back right away…it damn well should if they are gonna frack in urban areas!

Then there is the DOWNWINDERS effect…….our winds predominantly come from the southeast and blow to the northwest…and maybe that explains what Arlington folks were smelling a couple of weeks ago?

Screen shot 2015-10-05 at 11.01.41 AMAnd then there is Texas Sharon’s blog about a Barnett Shale county (WISE COUNTY) who had…..well read it for yourself.…this family had coins in their homes turn…woah!

Song “Love … it is our home” HomeKEEPING Frack Attack Colorado – Wilma Subra

Love… it is our home“…..must listen and share with a care to the physical home we have too….that one is kinda important if we want future homes for our family’s love.

Here are the slides from Wilma Subra’s presentation at the Frack Attack summit in Colorado this past weekend. One of the slides refers to the Earth Works health survey-thanks to all involved in making this presentation and thanks Liveable Arlington for their presence and photos.

Now please look at this laundry list of citizen action slides mixed in with slides showing our current health threat if you live near fracking…yes this in our CURRENT home….looks like our leaders failed us if we have a job at work and also a job after work and on weekends just to keep check for our “future home & current health risk”…..

Wireline Electric Logs tell an important story…like if ya gonna get blown up?

Chesapeake didn’t do electronic logs at MANY of the Arlington TX drill sites (I did see where they did them at the GM plant-but not nearby at the Truman site near the ATT Stadium)…just look at the completions records online at the RRC. Get the API number off the city’s website and then go to the RRC site. Not that I approve of any highly radioactive gamma ray beamed into the formation in my hood.

Since WFAA was featuring a specialist who was looking at these logs of some wells associated with a family who’s water well blew up and burnt them and so I thought I’d blog about this.

For Arlington residents, even though we have over 300 private water wells, I believe the risk extends not to those blowing up on us, but to the mere migration of gasses that might seep up into our soil if those casings aren’t deep enough and done right like in the case alleged for that family whose water well blew up ….and they got burnt.

Here are a couple snaps of the RRC electric logs…..

Arlington family 1,000 ft downwind to LABC drillsite “We Won’t Bleed in Private” signage

OK so I got an email with these pics and a letter with contact information. This person reached out to one of our Arlington frack fighters and so I’m on this….I’m all over this ya’ll.

The padsite they are closest to is the Lake Arlington Baptist Church drill site…yes the one that had lost well control last April….the sad sad part is they are perfectly downwind about 1,000 ft away…our predominant winds come from the southeast.

THEY have a website Frackfornever too. Gonna ask bout’ those “bleeds”. At the very least we have a new fractivist family and I only see the numbers of us growing here in Arlington Gasland Texass.

garden sign frackin tn 20150928_070515 frack garden sign frackin2Screen shot 2015-10-01 at 6.01.49 AMupdate: Mr. James Anton had to take down the sign in the back on city easement; it was only up for two days. And then on Oct 3, 2015 he received a notice from the city that a new change in OUR ordinance restricts the size of a residential sign to be four by two feet…lovely. Now the city is pressuring him to remove the one in his front yard.

Regarding the BLEEDING signage: He shared with me that the saying “We Won’t Bleed in Private”  is something he heard once from a gal who had a profound way with words and how when people gather in numbers for a cause that they can effect change by making public the need for such change.

Mr. Anton invites anybody who wants to join the cause to put pressure on the operators to take out individual insurance bonds for every homeowner that signed a drilling lease to cover any physical damage to their property if it if drilling related. Currently, we are on our own with any damages from subsidence, earthquakes etc. His home was 50 feet from the evacuation zone of the Lake Arlington drill site spill event.

Recycling Waste Water = Frack ON Crack ? Three studies ONE conclusion

Frack ON Crack has a new and elevated meaning for me on BarnettShaleHellRISK…

Subject: recycling frack water vs injection wells three studies one conclusion
Dear Pandya/inventor
In looking at your Grand Prairie TX Water remediation study, I was concerned that you would suggest they use the leftover salts for our roads and other constituents to be landfill ready.
Please search out Avner Vengosh’s work on recycling/tracking frack waters and his concerns for radioactivity, or at least read this by two other authors…
The study appeared in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts….
“However, the presence of various fatty acid phthalate esters in the Barnett and Marcellus produced waters can be related to their use in drilling fluids and breaker additives rather than their presence in connate fluids. Halogen containing compounds are found in each of the water samples, and although the fluorocarbon compounds identified are used as tracers, the presence of chlorocarbons and organobromides formed as a consequence of using chlorine containing oxidants (to remove bacteria from source water), suggests that industry should concentrate on non-chemical treatments of frac and produced waters.” 
My conclusion is that unknowns could equate to frack on crack if we throw more chemicals on the stuff. As it is, we saw an appearance of Arsenic in Grand Prairie’s water in 2011 and they do use ground water wells in the summer which the UTA Clear organization found that drilled areas have higher Arsenic levels.
Thank you for your attention to other’s work as a word of caution. Did you ever land that Grand Prairie contract?
