You and I will always fall on opposite sides in fracking, but we can agree to disagree.

IMO the biggest harm to the U.S. Atm is wastewater injection and it is mostly ignored because these wells are so hard to track. They do not need the same oil gas permits.
And more research is backing up that it's the reinjection of water causing quakes. There is little fracking in ok comparatively BUT it is where the nation reinjects water.



Actually I do agree with you. I believe injection is causing quakes but I just don't think it's to blame for every one of these strange quake swarms because many aren't near the process. But, maybe they are, as you point out some are hard to track. But, how do you expain then the rise in larger quakes and especially the volcanoes? There is a definite rise in these events as well and that has nothing to do with fracking.

My expertise is in molecular biology and the oil field.

I can't explain the active volcanos and earthquakes globally... I really cannot. I do not even have a sound hypothesis.

But ill bet my loafers that these small quakes in bama are water injection induced. Green county is surrounded by major oil field activity. If we could find (I tried... so far no go) the purported 1100 injection wells in alabama we would have more "evidence" or facts.


As for the rest man. I can frankly say. I dunno. But I am aware of it.

You're probably right. did not know there were 1100 injection wells in Alabama, so yes, this is going to have some repercussions. Thanks for the info.

In fairness it's east Mississippi and all of Alabama ... Still not near what ok and Texas has.

Fracking causes these shallow swarms.

One day soon, swarms of the world will unite and give USA new beach front property.

Don't kill he messenger.
