A Task Force for the People?
The Denton Record Chronicle ran this piece of mine on Sunday. I argue that Denton's drilling task force is polarized and dysfunctional. Rather than generating ideas to work around constraints they are pointing to those constraints as signs that reform is unwise and too costly. The majority on the task force speaks in the name of the industry and wants nothing about the current ordinance to change. This is a shame. I hope our City leaders push back on the task force and demand more creative options for making fracking a friendlier neighbor.
