As it turns out, the exploitation of Dish, Tx appears to be a well orchestrated plan to scam big oil and gas out of hard earned profits. Sharon Wilson aka TXSharon, crazy as always, continues to post the laughable "Health Survey Results" from a study commissioned by the town of Dish performed by Earthworks "Super Genius" Wilma Subra and engineer wannabe and "not a PhD" Alisa Rich. All of which has been completely proved to be false, not accurate,a possible hoax, and basically a down right "lie".
Our good friend Ed Ireland, Executive Director of the Barnett Shale Energy Education Council was quoted in a Star-Telegram piece posted Wednesday 5/12/10 titled "Tests Show No Gas Drilling Contamination in Dish Residence". Here's what Ed Ireland said about the DISH health study:
“The state has provided answers that can unequivocally assure residents of Dish and the Barnett Shale-area-at-large of the safety of natural gas operations in the region and eliminate concerns about benzene levels in their air and blood,”
Sharon Wilson posted on her blog that "Ed Ireland is NOT a scientist." He may not be a scientist but he does holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Texas Tech University and was formerly a professor and head of the Department of Economics at Clemson University. His career includes 20 years in the oil and gas industry in Houston, Tex. That's more than I can say for some of Sharon Wilson's "So Called Experts & Scientist". It's clear to most normal intelligent people that Wilma Subra aka "Super Brain?" and "Engineer Air Quality Expert PhD (NOT)" Alisa Rich are armatures and hacks. They might want to re-locate into the witness protection program and start new lives. It's amazing that liberal extremest organizations like "Earthworks", Texas Oil & Gas Accountability Project and Fort Worth CANDO haven't drop these clowns like hot potato's. Texas Oil & Gas Accountability Project members should be demanding their donations back and asking that their board of directors be held accountable for supporting and commissioning projects done by these hacks.
The good new is that for the month of April 2010 the AutoGC located at Dish Airfield that is a continuous monitor 24/7, the air quality results for the VOC Benzene was only an avg. of 0.13 ppb, Max was 0.58 ppb. The TCEQ ESL limits for that time frame are 180 ppb. So as you can see Dish was no ware near 180. Actually out of the 4 AutoGC stations in the Metroplex, Dish was the 2nd best air quality. The worst was Dallas Hinton St. and there is not a gas well in Dallas.
Also; the Texas Dept of Health Services released its "Final Report on Dish, TX" yesterday and concluded that the chemicals found in the residents were normal, and in line with the general population in the US.
Well, I guess there goes the big law suit Tillman and his ilk were trying to grab onto. Next time you might want to actually use real credentialed credible people to do your investigating instead of environmental crazy zealots who are just nuts.
Check back, as I have more to say on this issue. Some big bad things are getting ready to happen to some big mouth people who have been acting like dumb-asses. Good Luck.............
