Does it cause earthquakes, or is this like when Al Gore claimed that Global Warming caused the Indonesian Tsunami?

Sources for all ? Legitimate sources..
Time to put up or shut up
No legitimate sources= just another rhetoric , tripe post

EPA found scientific evidence that hydraulic fracturing activities can impact drinking water resources under some circumstances. The report identifies certain conditions under which impacts from hydraulic fracturing activities can be more frequent or severe:
Water withdrawals for hydraulic fracturing in times or areas of low water availability, particularly in areas with limited or declining groundwater resources;
Spills during the handling of hydraulic fracturing fluids and chemicals or produced water that result in large volumes or high concentrations of chemicals reaching groundwater resources;
Injection of hydraulic fracturing fluids into wells with inadequate mechanical integrity, allowing gases or liquids to move to groundwater resources;
Injection of hydraulic fracturing fluids directly into groundwater resources;
Discharge of inadequately treated hydraulic fracturing wastewater to surface water; and
Disposal or storage of hydraulic fracturing wastewater in unlined pits resulting in contamination of groundwater resources.

Big oil just got even bigger. Scott Pruitt is a close ally of the corrupt fossil fuel industry and is now is in charge of the EPA. It's like putting Bill Cosby in women's therapy.
He is from Oklahoma, which due to fracking, now is as likely to have earthquakes as California and can be felt as far as Texas. Corporate interests in high risk oil exploration continue at the expense of Americans. Now, big oil has their hands in the government..again. What exactly will he protect besides Big Oil's pockets? Nothing.
Clean air? Drinking water? Anyone remember Flint Michigan? This guy won't care.
