Good news -- Just heard on NPR that the Arkansas Gas & Oil Commission will be having an emergency meeting on Friday to "discuss" CLOSING the 2 injection disposal wells that are located near Greenbrier & Guy. Let's hope it happens.

What if it IS related to the earthquakes? What if Arkansas has a volcano or two that have been "dormant" for so long, nobody knew anything about it? There is a mountain in Arkansas near this volcano called "Mount Magazine" and it is an old name for it, but everyone says it is not a volcano, but if the Indians gave it that name, how would they know? Indians have had stories of volcanoes in Arkansas...this all just seems fishy to me.

Mount Magazine is the name commonly used for the tallest mountain in the state of Arkansas and is the site of Arkansas's newest state park. The mountain is a flat-topped plateau with a sandstone cap rimmed by precipitous rock cliffs. Two peaks are situated atop the plateau, Signal Hill, which is often identified as the tallest point in Arkansas, and Mossback Ridge, which reaches 2,700 feet (823 m).


Does not sound like a volcano to me to be honest. 95,000,000 years is the not the sort of age of a volcano that comes alive again generally.

Is anyone interested in me interviewing people in that area for anything weird happening lately, any weird formations on their property, photos, comments on it? If so, I'd love to research it. I'm very into this kind of thing.

Can't do any harm.

If you looked at the map, it just looks kind of...weird. If you compare it to other mountains and hills on the map, it looks absolutely nothing like them.

As I said earlier, I'm going to check it out in person Friday hopefully, and maybe get a few pictures and investigate the area. That may or may not be the supposed "volcano". If it isn't, I'll be investigating the entire area soon.

In other words, from first glance and first investigation of the area from a map, that looks like the strangest things to me and so it will be my first to check out.

Yes, I know that, I'm just trying to bring out any and all possibilities. It's a pretty tall mountain, but from being on top of it, it really doesn't look like anything I would consider a volcano, it's just odd that it's named "Mount". However, it is close to the area of the supposed volcano...I will definitely check out the area.

There are many, many mountains and hills around here. I live in the River Valley, which is between two mountain ranges. There are also many lakes wedged between mountains and even a few on the mountains.

This "Dry Creek" I'm supposed to check's not far from my house, and supposedly the people couldn't cross it after the volcano eruption, because it was too hot and the other side of the creek looked like there was fire, and there was steam everywhere. But, there are about 5 mountains (Mount Magazine NOT being one of them) on the other side of that creek, and I can't be sure which mountain was being described.

Some people around there say one of these mountains has an odd top - like a chunk taken out of it. I'm interested to see which one it is, take pictures, and investigate the area.

Also, on the 95 million years topic, that is just an estimate in the few areas they have done studies on (rocks and such). Nobody has ever actually looked for volcanoes here, even after Indians spoke of them, and there was a report of one. If there is one, it is probably dormant or inactive at the moment.

I'm not saying there is a volcano, but if there was one, how would anyone know? They have only studied volcanoes that have a) erupted since we have been here or b) have obviously had huge eruptions in the past (dormant). Other than that, we really know nothing.

I've been in a total funk all day. Not all of it to do with Arkansas. But a mighty good chunk of it was totally frustration. I kinda hit a wall. You and I have both done what we could. I looked for you tv interview. They never posted it.

It's like a weight has been lifted. Now I'm not naive enough to think it's 100% that they will stop. But it is an emergency meeting and they don't call them just for the donuts. And they say there is enough evidence. So there may be real movement. I thank you for your willingness to speak out and you made a difference. Many heard you that live there and I know they've been speaking out at town hall meetings for months.

I was at the point of just wanting to scream stop repeatedly because I could think of nothing else to say. In fact, I didn't rant a few times because that's all I could do. Stop. Stop. Stop. This is an emergency. All those words were written in your post. Words that meant something. Like evidence. Like the evidence you all posted here and on Arkansas Friend. We had evidence. The press was starting to sniff around like an old blind dog, not ever really coming that close, but close enough to know there was some rotting meat somewhere in the mix. The politicians realize there is no way to remain inactive. They realize that they will be liable. They know they will be held responsible if there's a bigger earthquake. I don't think they're reassured by Scott Ausbrook's repeated message that the largest quake may only be around 5.5 magnitude. Everyone felt that 4.7 and said that's big enough for us. And it was so widely felt that there was no way to limit the immediate concern. Arkansans all over the state were talking. Some came here and reported to us. There was no way to contain this. No way to sweep it under the rug, no way to get someone to sign a non-disclosure waiver, no way to hide the truth.

I wonder if the quakes will take very long to stop after they shut of the pumps?

I won't speculate. This is about this moment. The tide has turned.

Mm, sounds like it will be an interesting trip anyway.

Look forward to your report.

Chesapeake Energy's Danny Games released the below statement Wednesday afternoon.

"We understand the concerns of citizens who reside in northern Faulkner County and respect the Commission staff's desire to address perceived issues associated with the seismic activity. However, we remain very confident that an objective review of the facts and science do not support the proposed action. We have dedicated extensive resources and have consulted with several very qualified geophysicists and seismologists to better understand the science, including the natural seismicity of the area that long pre-dates our operations. We will evaluate our options and continue to provide the best information possible to the staff and Commission."

I don't really give a frack what they have to say. Even if they somehow are not responsible for the siesmic activity, they shouldn't be injection fluids ontop of a seismic area. Let alone, an active siesmic area. I want to punch them in the nose. That is an idiotic and dangerous statement. Let's us keep pumping, what's gonna happen, just some more quakes, what ya worried about?

Enola is a seismic area. The commision was already nervous about the injection well near Enola. Why not let them inject right on top of the fault? That's their idiotic argument.

Stop robin. Yes and stop the injection.

Thanks all. I think ATS and it's band of questioning minds needed to know. And we played a small part in helping spread this story. Every person in Arkansas who read this thread would tell their family or friends. If you don't know anything about Arkansans, go read some history. The clans would all know what one of them learned. And most every Arkansan felt that 4.7 and knew who to blame. Those commisioners have been answering lots of phone calls. They want the phone calls to stop. Which means they will have those injectors stopped.

I know the war ain't over. This was just a main battle.

We also have a Iron Mountain here in Ulster County, New York. Interviewed for a job there 20 years ago. Didn't take the job - I like sunshine/moonshine and it would have entailed being down in the caves complex. Little city down there..

hahaha, just re-read what I wrote - moonshine - yup, yup like that moonshine too

Hi all. Very interested in this thread even though I live in NZ. I really hope and pray they stop this fracking soon. Just one question and it is off topic, I apologise. Where online can I view the movie Gasland? Can anyone help with a link? We don't have the movie here and I'd really love to see it. TIA and back to lurking.

I know it's coming back on HBO tomorrow night but go to the website for the movie you can get a DVD from there I know.

I just put this in another thread which was started on this issue:

I have been keeping up with Robin's post on the earthquake swarm in Arkansas and am of the opinion that the damage has already been done. I agree with Robin, in that this fracking can and probably has already started a chain reaction due to the composition of the soil there and the fact that this is an inland seismic area, very unlike say, the San Andreas. My own personal belief is that it is just a matter of time now until the pressures that have been building up finally give way to a major earthquake. I am very afraid for the people who live in the New Madras zone.

Something I am curious about. Can anyone tell me why, if true, there are no underground bases on the east side of the US? Are there any underground bases on the east side? Does anyone know? I can't imagine why someone would want to build under or around a major fault line or near the NMZ.

I have no idea if this map is an accurate representation of what's really down there but if this map is correct, it sure would fit in with the New Madrid, Guy and other faults.

It could be bunk. : /

Actually there is a huge underground "bunker" of sorts, in Pennsylvania. It's called "Iron Mountain".

Under Iron Mountain

Ever hear of the "Marengo Warehouse" in marengo Indiana? its part of the Marengo cave system.

It has received over 3.3 million dollars in [link to] contracts over the last 9 years to store FOOD, MRE's to be exact. They have more MRE's stored here than anyplace else on the planet!

The Wall Street Journal.

I am absolutely sure that every single oil executive has heard this news. They're having meetings and conference calls at this very moment. They will be planning.

The main-stream media will be all over this tomorrow. They love to able to use the word emergency in their headlines. I think mother nature is helping us, the ones fighting the good fight. She's making impossible to ignore this issue. Did you think she'd stay quiet forever? Did you think she wouldn't react?

If you were the oil guys, you should have already seen this coming. You would already be trying to find away to make this go away. This is just a guess. But do you think they already turned down the pressure on the injector pumps? Do you think they were trying to settle things down?

Just throwing this out there,I'm an elevator mechanic,
and elevators run up and down shafts with very close tolerances.
I have noticed a change here,and wondering if they have there.
I posted a tread....Maybe the earth is expanding,
just don't know how to post it here.

Very interesting. Very. I'm not exactly sure if it's the earth expanding. But shifting soils will definately change a buildings foundations. Like you said, it happens normally over time as building adjust themselves. But you would know about frequency. You should contact the competition and see if other elevator techs have encountered the same phenomenon.

Pilot Knob is on that link, on the map. Scroll down to "Locator Map" and it is the odd shape there.

I live here, and I've never noticed any other mountain look like that. At all.

In person photos as soon as I go.

Yes,indeed,but maybe its due to recent heavy rain falls,cause I seen that before,,
but not like this.Maybe one building,or one unit.But I think it could be a good indicator of the soil and bedrock changing.
I will ask my fellow brothers about this.

What has more affect on the earth than the Moon? The Sun. When you add in the new activity of the Sun, I think you fill in some of the blanks you have been wondering about. I reference this webpage as an example.

I will research and contribute as I have time, which is very little right now. I can barely keep up with this thread.

Allow me to congratulate the contributors here (and elsewhere). What a marvelous job you have done. But, It is not yet complete. Please continue with your investigations. There is much more to study, as KDOG1982 demonstrates. I am truly amazed.
