It appears a large deposit of high pressure liquid sand, underground at the Collbran Colorado fracking location, found a weak point to the surface. After doing some research on the "Collbran Gas System" , which is part of the Piceance shale deposit, I found that in addition to hydraulic fracturing (fracking), there is also a LARGE amount of CO2 being pumped into the ground (like carbonation in a can of soda).... a process called "Carbon Sequestration", where CO2 is pumped into old oil wells filled with liquid frack sands. Carbon Sequestration is a Geoengineering method to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere (under the belief that there is global warming due to excessive CO2 in the atmosphere). The geoengineers have partnered up with the US Government, and oil companies -- to use old oil wells to "store" Carbon Dioxide gas. (each well thousands of feet deep, capable of being filled and compressed with billions of cubic feet of gas across thousands of old wells). -dutchsinise
Rescuers searched Monday for three men after a half-mile stretch of a ridge saturated with rain collapsed, sending mud sliding in a remote part of western Colorado. A county road worker, his son and another man went to check the damage on Sunday from an initial slide near the edge of Grand Mesa, one of the world’s largest flat-topped mountains, after a rancher reported that his irrigation ditch had stopped flowing, Sheriff Stan Hilkey of Mesa County said. He said no signs of the men, whose names were not released, or their truck had been found. The search near Collbran was hampered because only the lower third of the slide was stable. The mud is believed to be several hundred feet deep in some places.

We sent people to the moon, are able to keep people alive on machines, keep HIV from turning into full out AIDS, fly around the world in less than 24 yours, communicate large amounts of data in less than a minute across the globe, can obtain unlimited power from nuclear energy, harness the suns energy like a tree.
Annnnnd we do this.
This is the prime example of how money talks, this has been a proven fact that fracking is dangerous, not only for workers, but environment. Sometimes us humans can be extremely stupid, corrupt, gullible and stubborn.

He's back .
I remember Dutchsinise and his volcanic eruptions in the mojave desert.
Funny thing that at the time i could walk to my back door and look at the hill he was talking about there was no eruption.
I hereby reverse my position and make a retraction. I can no longer support the accusations I have made in this thread. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...

I don't think corporate greed is too worried about the loss of a few hundred lives. Those at the top level stand to become incredibly wealthy, and as long as nobody can 'prove' that fracking is responsible for events like this, they will keep adding to their wealth.
I doubt any executives would ever consider living in a fracing area.
It will probably take a catastrophic event that kills tens of thousands before fracking is finally acknowledged and stopped.
I have not checked to see if there is any fracking going on near nuclear power plants; it's bad enough to know that they're doing it on known major fault lines.
