Fact 1: Fracking is not directly causing most of the induced earthquakes. Disposal of waste fluids that are a byproduct of oil production is the primary cause of the recent increase in earthquakes in the central United States.

It is a direct side effect of Fracking. They must properly dispose of that fracking water, so using it the way they are doing it is important so it will not contaminate everything. I suppose they are trying to get it so they can just dump the crap on the ground instead of going through the expense of putting it back into the wells.
Can't any of those people be even remotely honest, is deception the only thing they know?

Dude, fracking is for natural gas. Wastewater from the fracking process is not petroleum byproduct.
