Diese Nachricht kann gegensätzlicher nicht sein und passt so gar nicht zu den Erkenntnissen der UNABHÄNGIGEN Exxon-Expertenkommision. Der Energiekonzern Chesapeake hat eine mögliche Luftverschmutzung durch Fracking ebenfalls ausgeschlossen und von harmlosen Dampf gesprochen, der die Anwohner nicht gesundheitlich belasten würde. In Wirklichkeit wurden aber 26 Chemikalien entdeckt, u.a. Schwefelkohlenstoff, ein Nervengift, Benzol, Naphthalin, Carbonylsulfid, Dimethyldisulfid und Pyridin.

“We paid for tests because we can’t depend on the city or the fracking industry,” said Colleyville resident Kim Davis.  She continued, “The tests confirmed our worst fears, while Colleyville ignored their own tests to let fracking continue. Apparently the city represents Titan and the gas industry instead of local residents.”Colleyville City ordinances expressly prohibit the release of any gases: “No person shall allow, cause or permit gases to be vented into the atmosphere or to be burned by open flame.”The community-funded test results, which detected twenty-six chemicals, also showed carbon disulfide, a neurotoxin at twice the state level for short-term exposure. Benzene, a known carcinogen, and Naphthalene, a suspected carcinogen, were both over state long-term exposure levels by more than 9 times and more than 7 times, respectively. Carbonyl sulfide, dimethyl disulfide and Pyridine were all detected above safe limits for long-term exposure.
