The term “you flew here, we grew here” took on a whole new meaning this week in the City of Denton.
Three national environmental groups finally stepped out from behind their east and west coast curtains, petitioning a Texas court to allow them to intervene in litigation – brought by the Texas Oil and Gas Association (TXOGA) and the state’s General Land Office (GLO) – that challenges the city’s new fracking ban. As reported in by the Daily Kos:
“Denton Drilling Awareness Group and Earthworks are leading the intervention charge, represented by attorneys from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Earthjustice.”
