Even Tillerson doesn't like fracking (at least near his home)

Nation -  ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, a vocal proponent of hydraulic fracking,  is suing to prevent the construction of a water tower near his eighty-three-acre, $5 million horse ranch in Bartonville, Texas. The purpose of the tower? Storing water for fracking. Tillerson and his super-wealthy neighbors are concerned, the lawsuit states, that the fracking tower might “devalue their properties and adversely impact the rural lifestyle they sought to enjoy.” As Chris Hayes put it, “Rex Tillerson is leading the fracking revolution, just not in his backyard.”
