    It's amazing that the dept of interior denies that fracking causes minor earthquakes called "boomers" politics of plausible deniability.

    Since the 1970's, China has injected water into depleting oil fields to keep the "natural" pressure up in the oil reservoir for extracting more oil, "Earthquakes induced by water injection have occurred in four oil fields" - http://voices.yahoo.com/synthetic-earthquakes-5893

      on NPR yesterday, they were claiming that the earthquakes were caused by the waster water from fracking that is put in deep underground disposal wells...what  a bunch of crazy idiots

      both the fracking and the chemical is causing horrible problems to the earth...and what about  our underground water sources, too?

        That's the greater worry - is the stuff seeping into drinking water. Gas fumes enter the water and the tap water spout needs to be flamed off every three days to avoid an explosion.

    It seems everyone will do the dirt and then hide their hands. When are we going to wake up nand do the right thing?

    Stay Well

    Your link does not work to start with. How would adding water pressure to remove oil cause Earthquakes. Taking a fluid out and putting a fluid in. Second how could gas seep into drinking water.That makes nos sense either.
