(Houston City Council OKs gas exploration beneath parks, Bradley Olson, ChronBlog)
Remember, this is the same City Government that's all over local refineries (and still has an active lawsuit against them) for "polluting the air". Funny how priorities change when the teat of the cash cow runs dry isn't it?
Despite concerns from some environmental advocates, the city moved ahead Wednesday with plans to allow exploration for natural gas reserves beneath three municipal parks.
Gotta protect those pet projects after all....
