Yes, let's please not forget that Dick Cheney is the author of the Halliburton Loophole of the Clean Water Act, and also former Big Man at Halliburton.

Sorry I've been writing on too many posts and I did not answer your question very well.
I believe that trauma killed the birds. The toxicology report is valid. I don't think that the birds were killed by the gas rupture. The noises of the rupture sent the flock into the frenzy which led to their injuries.
You make a good point about ruptures being picked up by siesmographs. If they were big enough they would. But if they were small they wouldn't stay out from background noises. For example a seep wouldn't make any noise at all. I believe that a seep killed the fish. The two ruptures that scared the birds were fairly large, but not much bigger than a large caliber weapon.
As I just wrote in my last post, Faye Moore describes the sounds. Then you have other witnesses describing it as a cannon or gun shots. So it was a loud rupture, but nothing substainally ground shaking. The rupture may not have been very loud at all considering. It was probably the hissing as gas escaped that drove the birds from their roost. I've heard the Trans Canada Pipline discharge gas. The rush gas at that volume freaked me out and I knew what was going on. I could see the pipeline and figured it out almost immediately, but that didn't settle my nerves.
Fracking is right across Akransas. The Fayetteville Shale Play Formation runs through all three counties where the events took place.
No disrespect at all, but I got the answer. You should research everything and you'll see that I have the best hypothesis and the most circumstainal evidence. None of my evidence is outside known scientific findings.
Fracking causes gas migration. That's the whole purpose of the excercise. Injection causes earthquakes. The Gas and Oil Companies kill lots of birds and fish. There is nothing exceptional about my hypothesis. It's just that I've put all the pieces together and looked at this just like the way Sherlock Holmes investigates.
If you find any information I provided that are contray to the facts, I will correct it immediately. If you find a major flaw in my hypothesis I will address it directly. I obviously failed the first go round but that was because I was going off in too many directions and didnt' focus on what you wrote exactly.
But now the media storm is calming as they find other things to write about. It was a slow news week. The thing happened when Yellowstone had the swarm back on Boxing Day 2008. So this means people are moving on and will forget about Arkansas and the things that are happening there. Like earthquakes and water contamination from the drilling. Those stories arent' sexy.
