But I see another brushfire starting.

Still waiting on a confimation email so I can post comments on that story, including links to research showing that it is linked...

As I've mentioned before, every time one of these stories is posted the truth needs to be offered for consideration. The way i put it in a past post is we need to ATS-ify the MSM. Exposing the nefariousness of the oil company's actions is a tiring and never ending task. one that will require constan vigilance but is of a worthy nature.

Open the door for people and they will step through if they see they are no the first. Most people want to be lead, so let's lead them.

I say... ATS-ify away!!!

I decided to suck it up and read that article. Yep... it made me

There was this slap in the face from the beginning...

This week, two more small earthquakes were recorded in central Arkansas where a recent spate of tremors has officials considering shutting down two gas-drilling wells.

Really?? I know that they are probably only looking at the 3 & up ones, but seriously!

On the USGS site when looking at the map, I noticed something yesterday...

Look under the date and time.... '82 earthquakes on this map'... and that's just the past week. I know there are places out west that have this kind of activity, and I'm not discounting those, but those places are in active geological areas.

I guess I'm just showing my EQ stupidity......

Ok, another thing to consider is that the effects of injection continue long after they are halted. I cannot for the life of me remember exactly where it's stated but I recall reading in several places amongst the articles and papers I've linked throguh thisnthead the issue of years passing and still have the effects be visible and present is expected.

Think about this. The frac fluid is designed to penetrate and loosen rock, it infiltrates the porous layer and spread out. It is also laced with acids and other caustic chemical further breaking down the rock. Then they pump all this down and pressurize it. Hmm, what do you think that's goIng to do?

One of the articles I recently linked indicates a concern that a major fault line could be lubricated by this material!

There's evidence that as little as 15% of the fluid is recovered from the initial process to begin with. So not only are the disposal wells filling up, from all parts of the country, but the injection wells STILL have huge amounts of this fluid left in them that is never recovered.

And these things are everywhere you will find shale plays. They're already there.

Gotta make em pay somehow. They've already accomplished a tremendous amount of harm, the effects of which we will be still umcovering for a long time.

I imagine it will take some time to shut down the pumping. Think of it like a nuclear reactor. You can't flip an off and on switch like a sump pump. There will be a process. It won't take that long. So it will be hard to know precisely when they cease completely.

So it will be interesting to see if there is a noticable difference.
And as pointed out, they may have just triggered a natural process. Mud volcano caused by drilling in Indonesia. The drilling stopped, but the mud flows on.

There may be an evident difference, and there may not be any change for awhile.

I hope the damn thing stops cold and it becomes obvious. I doubt it. But it would be nice. And Susan, Kathy and the others need a break.

Let's hope.

This is my concern too.

Don't get me wrong; having these two wells shut down is a huge accomplishment. Although, I noticed that by having their little 'pre' meeting and voluntarily doing this they avoided having ANY testimony or people speaking out for the media to suck up and quote and print and smear. Which is what they are attempting to avoid ofcourse. This way, they have to only shut down two wells, a drop in the bucket really and avoided the media backlash and exposure to what they have REALLY done. concern is that the damage HAS been done. All those hundreds of little micro quakes were the inejection wells doing their damage. These subsequent 2.5 + quakes are the result. Especially the larger quakes. Guys, I don't think those bigger ones are a direct result of those wells, but the damage and progression that they caused. I think that whatever it is that they triggered down there....well, that trigger has been pulled and the bullet is slowly making its way to the surface.

It would be wonderful if it stopped cold, but I doubt that will happen. I have emailed the USGS about the locations of the new stations and asked if they had considered putting one down here in my area and have again let them know that we are feeling the smaller ones even in the 1.9 range. So we will see if they answer back.

I agree with you. Anyone want to buy a very nice place on 3 acres with a stocked fishing pond. Looks like a golf couse during the spring and summer time. I'll sell it for real.

Easy there Susan, lol. Sheesh. Why don't we wait for a while to see if the quakes stop as some wells stop. That's really going to take months to see the action-effect relationship in this case. May take years. I wouldn't go selling just yet unless you just wanna move.

Also need to stay on top of the frac fluid flow. That stuff is dangerous and has to be dealt with. What realistically can and should be done with that material?

More importantly, the reliance on that type of energy is eventually self-destructive in a massive scale. Some other form of energy is needed and quickly. The problem is, the free energy technology is and has been suppressed for a long time precisely because it can't be centralized once it's realized.

Think about havin the equivalent of a nuclear reactor in a device the size of a baseball and weigh about as much. But it was completely safe and reliable. and easy to produce. No way to keep ccontrol then. And you have to remember that it's all about control. Always has hopefully won't always will be.

There is really that much information. And thats not been culled just a bit or two. Thats more than a thesis thats a dissertation. Which I considered, if I go forward another level. I am so disgusted with what technology has done to this earth, and my education is based directly on this vocation. But the most rewarding part of having been part of this thread is I have always wanted to be in a think tank, a contributor, to affect some positive change.
Robin, don't stop now! We are getting folks attention, but now its up to us to open some eyes and change some minds. We are on our way!

Let's not forget that Chesapeake sold their claim.
This story is far from over. The buyer, (i forget whom) will be taking Chesapeake to court to get out of the deal.
Chesapeake is in legal hot water on a few fronts.

They were trying to make a quick get-away.
But mother nature tripped them up and they fell flat on their face.
They'll be teams of lawyers involved. They'll get paid. Even traders on Wall Street are getting wind of the big stink. The article is financial gossip, but you can see the trend.

Hope you catch the edit MIKE. Someone posted the document.

In between my to office appointments I did a quick news search on google. Arkansas Fracking and then went to the new for the past hour and then for the past 24 hours. On the right hand side there is an add which, I decided to check as it is states The truth about fracking Here . Maybe you Robin or one of our other writers may want to jump in the comments and put a stop to this non sense. I am not much of a writer or I would attempt it.

Well, I knew this was coming. Watch the push back from the oil guys. They'll be bombarding the web with all kinds of arguments and opinions. Don't worry. This will only inflame the debate. shh. they may hear you.

The debate is good. The debate will be won because people are not stupid. They see the trend. They understand their business plan is failing. At the moment they are trying to calm investors. But investors are not stupid people, well, they can be fool, but when they see trouble on the horizon the bail.

Here's another blog trying to argue fracking is a good thing.

I wonder if the writer would lease out their property to the gas boys? Would the blogger drink the water?

The gas boys know they're in trouble. So expect lots of smokescreens.

And Anmarie, thanks, you know why.

Feel free to plagiarze me to death. (correct the spelling first) Take my words and make them your own. I give away all my words freely. This offer is available to all interested parties.
