Subject: State conducting shale gas production CRIMINAL investigation – would TCEQ be as bold to fake test results?

“The operations generated constant truck traffic, loud noise, bright lights and emissions that she said gave her headaches…..One resident is battling a gas company over property damage and various legal issues related to fracking operations. Another resident has had a longstanding dispute with a gas company over suspected health problems related to nearby shale-gas development operations, quality of life impacts and damage to the house and farm…..Yet another resident is fighting a gas company over allegations its well caused health-damaging chemical exposures to that person’s family and neighbors….During an AG’s office meeting on May 4, 2017, 17 people from as many as seven counties aired complaints about the shale gas industry affecting residents’ health while also contaminating their land, water and air; damaging properties and killing or sickening livestock….The suit also contended that the state Department of Environmental Protection faked and reported incomplete air test results that showed lower air pollution levels....The lawsuit was settled last fall and its terms sealed. The Haney family’s story was chronicled in “Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America,” which was among the New York Times critics’ top books of 2018.” (end excerpts)

Kim Feil writes…The good evidence I kept when I sued Chesapeake in small claims court is book worthy too…we may not allow waste impoundments or flaring, and we don’t rely on well water to drink like in PA…but over time…if the cancer clusters are made known on all these air and soil exposures…our urban drilling experiment here in the Barnett Shale will be recognized as our failed local leadership’s legacy to not have the citizen’s health and safety as their priority.  The City of Arlington’s leadership has failed us on the precautionary principle.
As you move to improve our Gas Well Ordinance, remember that people like me and Jane have disrupted lives fighting the good cause and it is within your power to be more stringent for the public good. Please move to regulate certain aspects of each production phase….I have detailed them over the years and wouldn’t mind recapping them for you.

Subject: Drs & academics call 4 ban on inherently risky fracking
“The arguments against fracking on public health and ecological grounds are overwhelming. There are clear grounds for adopting the precautionary principle and prohibiting fracking,” they said.
“(UK)Medact director and report co-author Dr David McCoy said fracking potentially exposes communities to leaks of chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects and lung disease. He also raised concerns over noise and air pollution.”
“What we don’t yet have is an adequate and proper study to determine the level of those potential benefits and to weigh them against the potential harms,” said McCoy.

CBSDFW covered 10/28/14 Arlington City Council meeting vote to allow drill site expansion using the earthquake angle. I gave council info on the growing evidence of health effects risk. This Enervest Perr Drill Site greatly impacts employees and residents   NOT   included in our (pathetic 600 ft) Gas Drilling Ordinance SETBACK

DEFINITION: “Although there exist many versions of precaution, the general gist is that, where there are threats to human health or environment, scientific uncertainty is not a reason for inaction. This does not compel a particular action. It merely reminds us that lack of evidence of harm, is not the same thing as evidence of lack of harm. In other words, the crux of precaution lies in the rigour of taking similar care in avoiding the scientific error of mistakenly assuming safety, to avoiding mistakenly assuming harm.”

NOT ONE COUNCIL PERSON RESPONDED.

They have yet to acknowledge the growing body of SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE that should lead them to vote in a Christian based PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLED way on Urban Drilling.

The science is starting to catch up to the mad dash for gas in Arlington Gasland TX.

What great big balls Cluck, Bennett, Glaspie, Capehart, & Wolff had to unanimously (MIA was Rivera, Shepard, & Parker) approve the expansion of an existing site that is 400 feet away from gasoline pumps and 300 feet away from the KOA Campgrounds where about 300 people LIVE at any given time.

Here is an email from today (10/30/14) following up with council in my attempts to have them communicate that they are in receipt of my emails…

Subject: Lon Burnam request/US NEWS out today on fracking heatlh/reply request
1) Lon Burnam has comments and requests of you, City Council, regarding the seismic rules the RRC has put in place recently. So please be looking for that email I’ll forward you.
 3) Ever hear of the PRECAUTIONARY PRINCIPLE? It would hold up in court if you would have denied the PERR DRILLING ZONE…you just want the money and your inattention (and refusal to acknowledge my email that I sent last week) to the growing body of medical science on health effects near drilling is finally catching up to the shale rush you allowed.

* Dr Epstein’s Presentation is here..
Here is the CBSDFW TV coverage pics of the meeting….too bad there is now no trace of this media report on the internet.
Screen shot 2014-10-31 at 2.54.33 PM Screen shot 2014-10-31 at 2.56.14 PM Screen shot 2014-10-31 at 2.57.28 PM Screen shot 2014-10-31 at 2.54.40 PM
And so my review of Dr Epstein is that she has shown leadership in understanding the health implications of citizens near drilling activities. I personally have found local physicians in Arlington recognize that there is limited data for health studies and that this is an untapped area that most doctors do not have skills in. Now the science is catching up to the mad dash for shale gas…We need more doctors to learn this new field of caring for shale sicknesses ie.. how to diagose it and make medical records of it. But more importantly, we need for them to learn how to treat it (without fear of political polarization).

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.
