A bus load of Texans made the ground shake in Austin this week.
And I’m still shaking! Their dedication to helping others and protecting our communities, homes and children is truly inspiring.
More than 50 Texans from North Texas (the area around Azle) took time off from work and school, woke up at 3am and sat on a bus for eight hours to tell our government officials we need immediate action to stop fracking related earthquakes.

This week residents in Mansfield, Texas were alarmed by a shower of foam that “shot back up the hole” of the too-close-to-their-homes EagleRidge Energy (EagleRidge) gas well. The foam hung in trees and covered their yards for hours.
EagleRidge said the foam was industrial soap used as a lubricant. Mansfield firefighters tested it and “found nothing toxic.” The residents should request MSDS sheets.
At least they didn’t say it was Dove Soap, as other fracking industry representatives have done.
