Posted: November 29, 2012 in Uncategorized

Texas elected representatives! Feigned ignorance of the injustices and environmental crimes of the rampaging oil and gas companies will no longer work! Bring sanity to exploration and production now!  Go to TxSharon blog to link to a Bloomberg news story about the failure of Go to Earthworks website and read the study, “Breaking all the rules…”. It is a study based on publicly released documents highlighting the failures of state agencies in making sure oil and gas companies follow the existing guidelines.
Act to protect the civil rights of landowners! In the words of Calvin Tillman,”once you know you can’t not know.” You now know what they are doing to surface owners. You now know they are burying pits…filled with toxic waste mere feet above our water table. You now know our air has such a stench it makes one nauseous to breathe in and causes headaches and nosebleeds. (Come to Gardendale) You now know that unrestrained development strains city and county resources to the breaking point! You now know that their right to use our land as they see fit without just compensation destroys our private use of it ! You can’t not know anymore! Cowboy up and do the right thing. Protect your constituents from the ravages of oil and gas companies bent on destroying our use of our own property. “I didn’t know” or, ” The TCEQ and RRC takes care of that” won’t work any more.You now know the state agencies responsible for regulating oil and gas and protecting our land, air and water are Impotent by Design! Dan Boggs, President, West Texas Accountability Project.
From “The Caleb Leverett Show”

Brace yourselves. I just picked a fight (metaphorically speaking, of course) with a bunch of billion dollar oil company bullies in defense of their victims. This is in my local paper, the Odessa American. Tune in tonight to the premier of “The Caleb Leverett Radio Show” at

The Turning Point

Posted: November 9, 2012 in Uncategorized

Courage, Guts, Moxie…no matter what you call it, Caleb Leverett has more of it than all the shameful, cowardly, oil company execs put together times 1,000! A turning point has been reached today. Those of us with these drilling rigs nex

t to our home are disgusted and angry, but when a working guy says, “enough”, that’s a real breakthrough.

Devon on the other hand, is more or less, a scumbag company; proof is this video. Devon has rights? Is that what the Devon chickensh*t said? What about that family that lives there? They don’t have a right to live in peace? This kind of bullying is what will bring the oil field to its end. Sadly, there is a better way, but oil companies refuse to listen; too busy counting their money.


From Josh Fox, director of Gasland:
“The suspicion that PA DEP is colluding with the gas industry, a belief long held by many living within the Marcellus Shale, has just been further supported by the sworn testimony of two whistleblowers. Two employees from within the PA DEP, Taru Upadhyay and John Carson, have given depositions describing outrageous breaches of trust by the PA DEP,  alleging they deliberately failed to report the presence of metals, which are known hydrofracking-related contaminants, in water wells it tested in the Marcellus Shale.”

“Impotent by Design” is the label GARDAP has placed on the TRRC, and the TCEQ.  Slow reaction, and apathetic response characterize our exchanges with these agencies.  Contempt for this industry is growing.  No longer is the narrative, “that’s how we make our living” going to excuse their heinous behavior!
