Because the Barnett Shale supports our communities, Texas, and America. CLEAN Resources is a group of concerned Texans who represent the more than 100,000 jobs in the Barnett Shale. We got together because we're tired of a handful of people coming in to our cities and towns and distorting the facts about shale gas development, and we think it's about time somebody started telling the truth about all the good it does for our communities, our state, and our country. So here's the truth: Natural gas is clean burning - reduced greenhouse gases, less pollutants, and less emissions. That's just a fact. Natural gas from the Barnett shale has a huge impact on the economy of our region and our state. We're talking jobs, small businesses, banks, taxes, wages, all of that. The anti-Barnett crowd either doesn't see that or doesn't care, but this is our life and the good of our families we're talking about. The Barnett Shale makes us more secure because the more natural gas we get from there, the less oil we've got to import. Drilling in the Barnett Shale is safe and protects the environment. It's funny that you got these people running around talking about air and water pollution, when the truth is, there's not a shred of evidence to support any of that. Our mission is simple: We want to tell the other side of the story, and we're going to do that, and we're going to do it every day. So keep coming back, and we'll keep giving you the facts that nobody else is talking about.
Economist Dr. Mark Perry highlighted some astounding information in a recent post on the American Enterprise Institute Carpe Diem blog this week.

Economist Dr. Mark Perry posted some astounding job creation data on his American Enterprise Institute blog. Perry explains that, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas has seen "1.32 million new jobs added since the start of the Great Recession, compared to a net deficit of almost one million jobs for the other 49 states combined. Much of the economic success of Texas in recent years that has fueled job creation in the state is a direct result of the shale oil and gas boom."Read More
