Eagle Ford Waste

I want to see the city put on an event at the L.E.A. about this.
“Why should Zapata County take care of Dimmit, La Salle, Webb or other counties' chemical wastes?” he asked.
Of course, they won't, because the Eagle Ford is all around perfect.  But there may be some relief coming.
Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy, the nation’s second-largest natural gas producer after Exxon Mobil Corp., launched the barrage with an announcement on Monday that it would slash natural gas drilling in half over the next few months.
Emphasis mine

Energy companies are looking to pull back on production because the price of natural gas has dropped.  Apparently the mild winter has put a hamper on the need for gas to heat homes.
So let me get this straight:  the fossil fuels that energy companies depend on have affected climate change.  Now that climate change is having an effect on their bottom line.  Oh, that's rich!!!
