Oklahoma geologists have documented strong links between increased seismic activity in the state and the injection into the ground of wastewater from oil and gas production, a state agency said on Tuesday. Currently, Oklahoma is recording 2-1/2 earthquakes daily of a magnitude 3 or greater, a seismicity rate 600 times greater than observed before 2008, the report by the Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) said. It is "very likely that the majority of the earthquakes" are triggered by wastewater injection activities tied to the oil and gas industry, the OGS said. It warned that residents should be prepared for a "significant earthquake."

This is utter bs I will edit this post in 2 min or so to show this.
ok so here we have a thread i started a few months ago
here we have the usgs animations of Oklahoma earth quakes . important to note this is the ONLY animation make for ANY state
from jan 2008 to dec 2010 there were aprox 500 eqs in OK
from jan 2011 to dec 2012 there were aprox 1100 eqs
from jan 2013 to dec 2014 there were aprox 5100 eqs
from jan 2015 to present? aporx 1800 eqs
in the year 2015 there were aprox 4000! quakes
much more than are being said in this thread. this is corroborated by the usgs animation
this is an overlay i have made of the frak sites and the earth quakes
the eqs are not happening at the frack sites for the most part
now lets go back to the usgs animation
when you get to the 12 sec mark u will notice the eqs start clustering around the east edge of okalahoma city it stays that way until all most the 30 sec mark
this is (what i believe to be) a DUMB being built under the TINKER AIR FORCE BASE (TAFB)
u will then see the eqs start to move to converge from the north and south these are tunnels to connect the bases together
thats all i have time for atm
