Texas had 5 earthquakes in less than 4 hours.
Oklahoma has had a dramatic increase in earthquakes;over 500 in a month in a state where it was once as rare as can be.
Ohio has increased quakes. Places which never had earthquakes are seeing them on a regular basis now.
Mysteriously they seem to increase wildly wherever fracking is going on.
Another mystery is drinking water going bad or igniting into flame from the tap!
Of course fracking has nothing at all to do with any of this.
Pumping chemical filled water down between rock layers, displacing, expanding and shifting them has absolutely no effect on the earth at all. Please don't be silly.
There is not a reaction for every action. That is a myth.
You could do an experiment by pumping some chemical laced water into the ground beneath your home or apartment.
Nothing will happen just as nothing happens from fracking.
Your foundation will not crack, or shift. The house will not collapse in on itself.
It is why we need sump pumps, drainage systems and roof gutters.
But ignore all that.
Fracking has decreased property values everywhere it is being done or even discussed.
Let us chalk that up to tree hugging housewives with too much time of their hands or something.
Let nothing stop us. There is money to be made and oil is king.
Heavy equipment has damaged local roads to the extent that many are impossible for normal traffic anymore.
Drinking water and pasture for grazing animals is poisoned.
But fracking is wonderful because lots of money is being made and we are less dependent on foreign oil.
All is well. Go back to your cell phone.
