Exxon CEO:
NO Fracking in My Neighborhood!

Mar 3, 2014

A lawsuit against a water utility is going forward in a small town in Texas near Dallas. The town has many multi-million-dollar residences in an area where the company XTO Energy drills hundreds of wells each year to look for shale suitable for fracking.

XTO has been owned by Exxon Mobil Corp since 2009. And who is one of the lead plaintiffs against the 15-story water tower under construction in the town? The CEO of Exxon Mobil!

Fracking is the future proposed for everybody else–but not if the water tower spoils his multi-million-dollar view!
