Shelby Buehring was born in South Texas and bought a home there in 1995, but he has grown to hate the area.

 

That’s because the area’s fracking boom caused his wife, Lynn, to depend on an inhaler to help her breathe properly amid an atmosphere rife with thick black smoke, strong stenches and other environmental effects from fracking near their Karnes County home.
