USGS has yet to indicate THE exact nature of today’s explosion. USGS does tell new that “Making a strong scientific case for a causative link between a particular human activity and a particular sequence ofearthquakes typically involves special studies devoted specifically to the question. Such investigations usually address the process by which the suspected triggering activity might have significantly alteredstresses in the bedrock at the earthquake source, and they commonly address the ways in which the characteristics of the suspected human-triggeredearthquakes differ from the characteristics of naturalearthquakes in the region. “

Thanks for your post!
Although the quote was hilarious, vague and convoluted at the same time. I paraphrase:
"A causative link between human activity and some 'quakes requires special studies, and must focus on "suspected triggering activity" that may have altered the bedrock, before we can point a finger at any one drilling-for-blood-profit oil company. And, of course, other stressors must be considered too, such as temperature, gravity variants, moon phase, sun spots, what HAARP's doing to the ionisphere, and what the oil company's stock is currently selling for ..."
And Yeah, it sounds like possibly fracking. But why is Oregon taking the heat for the quake-swarm due-to-fracking in Northern Nevada?

I have to agree Its got to be cause of fracking.
All that pressurized fluid breaks apart rock, some have to take more pressure to break up than others. So the more energy required to break apart that rock the bigger the bangs can be.
Well at least that's my understanding of it.
The Bend 30- × 60-minute quadrangle has been the locus of volcanism, faulting, and sedimentation for the past 35 mil lion years.
