HEY DFW Scanner! ….Sad that Science & Facts R somehow Political?

When DFW Scanner was just coming into being, I recall 3-4 years ago some emails passed between John Burgdorf and I. In recalling that he was in tune with the dispatch activities, he went to the scene of the XTO Pappy Elkins drill site where they lost control of one of the new wells being drilled and it was described as a “sand blow out” …his active Republican stance explains his denial and argumentative stance in defense of fracking ….that sand is radioactive.

Here is the SMU analysis link.

One of the comments read……..

Carissa Stark Macgillacoody-Hopenwasser Sad that science and facts are somehow political”.

Here is Texas Sharon’s blog post on the SMU study that includes a map… “Irving only has the two gas wells. They were drilled and fracked from the same pad site near University of Dallas campus. According to records obtained by Texas Public Information Act, there was a casing rupture on one of those wells during fracking. The operator, Trinity East/Expro Energy was unable to fix the rupture. That well was shut in but not capped. If you ask about what happened, you might get a cease and desist letter.  The other well has produced very little and has produced nothing since October 2012.”


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.
