Pink Floyd’s fracking point at the Ozone SIP meeting today

At NCTCOG on June 16 2014, after Jim Schermbeck gave a stunning presentation showing a history of TCEQ failed attempts at SIP (State Implementation Planning), I snapped this picture as a request was directed to these TCEQ men to respond to Jim’s presentation.

Congressional TX Dist 6 Candidate Cozad listens intently but was firm on the idea to add electric vehicle fueling stations to the SIP

At the DFW Ozone nonattainment Air Quality Technical Meeting today, I corrected TCEQ Fernando Mercado in his response to me that only 4 months of data from the UTA air monitoring Auto GC station wouldn’t be used in the presentation….I knew that the monitoring station had been there for almost two years now (we had 4ppb Benzene on Dec 23 2013 that my family was downwind to) …..I wished I could have further corrected Fernando to remind him that OZONE isn’t even being monitored there…..that maybe “THAT” was the reason I didn’t see the UTA info on his Ozone presentation.

The next speaker, Robert Kent, from the North Texas Comission confirmed that the UTA air monitor went online September of 2012. That was my golden opportunity to publicly request that air monitor be moved to the Arlington Entertainment District next so that we can see what toxic syngeristic effect General Motors, its stamping plant expansion, and the onsite Chesapeake gaswell/compressor operations there is having on our airshed when all that blows to the stadiums and Six Flags to mix with all those vehicle emissions.

Next the EPA speaker, Carrie Paige, was at a loss on how to respond to me complaining about how the EPA’s NSPS rules missed the Green Completions emissions of “top flow” where they flowback into open containers and let the VOC’s vent into the neighborhoods….

… tried to tell me that in order to mandate closed flowback tanks (like the ones Vapor Point sells)….

would involve needing to know how much was venting and the “fea$ibility” of employing them. He implied that this didn’t belong in the state SIP and tried to blow me off directing me to contact the EPA department that worked on the NSPS rules….I responded by singing the Pink Floyd song…

“WE DON’T NEED NO TOPFLOW FLOWBACK”….

The meeting ended with my asking Chris Klaus if he would find the Barnett Shale methane airplane mapping info that was not presented at the last SIP meeting….I mentioned that the National Aademy of Sciences reported from their Pennsylvania flyovers of drill sites that they had 100-1,000 times more leaks than what was expected. Methane indirectly causes Ozone conditions with overall global warming ground level heat effects.

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
