Apparently Urban Fracking Is Threatening The Dallas Suburb Of Fort Worth
I was intrigued.
The message in the email said "Why do I have a feeling no one is 'green' with envy?"
The green with envy reference refers to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's now, mostly, dormant practice of claiming this, that or the other actual lame thing, in Fort Worth, was causing spasms of envy in other locations on the planet.
Long ago I documented, via a webpage, instances of the Star-Telegram's Green With Envy verbiage.
That particular webpage is one of my more popular ones. It has generated a lot of ad revenue over the years.
But, I digress.
Elsie Hotpepper's email included a link to an article on the Truth Out website, with that article titled "Urban Fracking Bonanza Threatens Dallas Suburbs".
I am sure those in Fort Worth who suffer from what some refer to as the Dallas Fixation will really be liking that the Dallas suburb this article refers to is the town that calls itself Fort Worth.
Basically the article tells the tale of what a mess this Dallas suburb has made of itself by allowing itself to be the world's first large city to allow thousands of fracked gas wells to pollute its environs.
Fort Worth's noted Watch Dog, Don Young, makes an appearance in this article, as is to be expected in articles of this nature...
