Amazing. Will they have a major earthquake soon? Hard to say but it indicates the worrisome aspects of fracking, over and above environmental spills.

  1. My skeptical attenae are up on this one. Waste water “lubricating” faults? On a scale significant enough to produce measurable earthquakes? I tried to follow a trail of links to an actual peer reviewed article supporting this thesis, but was unable to locate it. Do you have a better source than CNN?
