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.
The last several months have brought an endless stream of bad news from all parts of the globe. Americans have been shocked and saddened by accounts of violence and destruction that have resulted from ongoing conflicts in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
While Americans have been aghast at the horrible situations unfolding in these global hotspots, most of us have not considered the larger factors that kept our economy healthy during these troubled times. The USA Today editorial board recently posited that our insulation from these events is due, in part, to the energy revolution that is taking place in our own country.
A post on The American Interest takes a look at some of the common criticisms from radical environmentalists regarding shale energy's environmental record and finds that activists have resorted to "analytical chicanery" to make their arguments against the proven benefits of shale gas.

The shale revolution has energy production surging across the United States, and there is a race for top talent to fill jobs at all levels. As energy companies search for workers, more and more companies are tapping in to the "large pool of talented (veterans) with invaluable experience and diverse backgrounds."Read More
