Citizen Gas Well Sentinels ask “Is this our new jobs?” Two retired ladies from Denton County testified at the EPA public hearing in Arlington that they are the only monitors of gas wells in their area.

I had the satisfaction of pointing out the ANGA representative and throwing on my gas mask while a speaker complained about them spending so much much on the lying commercials instead of emission control technologies.
