Yes, semantics for sure.... But at a site where people will use this for fuel to support their theorys of "Hollow earth" and such, I feel this needs to be made light of.
Anyways, back to the story and info now that we know the facts, still interesting as is.

I understand that when oil is taken from the earth, that they pump in sea water to fill the void. Could this be all it is?
Not sure, its under china. Not a whole lot of oil drilling there I don't believe.

The problem is clearly with the on-line magazine and not with the researchers. They even got the university name wrong. It is Washington University at St. Louis. Not Washington State University. It is ranked equal to Cornell. The research is valid. I believe the correct term is aquifer.

Got it. Was a little too impatient I guess. Wonder what the hollow earthers make of this?

This is really interesting. Although the title of the article is misleading. When I saw it I was like "WOW". Still pretty cool though. I wonder if there is a way to extract the water from the rock? Maybe they will find something similar on the moon or Mars...
When the planet was young, steam came from the deep interior to the surface as volcanic gas and eventually produced today's oceans. But as Earth's interior ages and cools, it becomes easier for water to return below the surface.
