Another nine minutes and fifty seconds of my life I can never retrieve. Not to mention the 45 seconds it took me to post this. Really that is the best prognostication attempt this person can do. Really? It felt more like a poor attempt to ramp up people's interest in the movie.

Sorry if this is all completely off topic.

Susan and Kathy I hope your evening is peaceful and you can get some true rest. Living with a constant gnawing worry can slowly eat you up inside. My only advice is to make contigency plans for everything. It is the only way you can gain a semblance of control back in your life. While I haven't lived through the sensation of having a house on a pulsating vibrato , I do know about the constant stress of impending doom. (Living through the BP disaster) I started making plans two hours after the full scope of the disaster was brought to my attention. (Those 2 hours I spent like this
) I'm still making contingency plans today. They might not amount to a hill of beans when the shtf but they help me cope with the daily stress.

Great information today, and great job everyone!!!

Obviously, MSM is now involved... although their reporting needs to be a lot more in depth. But it is a start, and one in the right direction.

I know someone said way back when, we should get someone like Erin Brockovich involved. I couldn't agree more, especially now. Striking while the iron is flaming hot!

I know several people could be the "spokesperson" for this, but I would suggest Susan and/or Kathy, as they are local and experiencing it every day. Susan especially, because of the attention she was able to get with local media.

If either one, or both of you, or anyone else for that matter, feels like giving Erin a shout out, it definitely cannot hurt the situation. I would definitely provide her with the list of links that Sunflowerstar has kept up to date for everyone. Along with pointing her to this thread, and the Arkansas Friend Page & Group Page on Facebook.

Erin states on her site that:


Of course I may not be able to personally reply to everyone's email, but I assure you, I read each and every Email.


Erin Brockovich Environmental Concerns Page With "Contact Erin" page at the bottom

Yes I have to agree. Have friends and family still down there and they have plans as well and keep things ready to leave.

Ignorant would be believing this has all been figured out. Whether or not FRACing has caused or contributed this particular swarm has NOT been proven one way or the other. There are many other things to consider, starting with the fact that a swarm of very SIMILAR characteristics occurred within 20 miles of this area on two separate occasions in the past. There is also reason to believe a similar one occurred pre-dating detailed records for this area. The two other documented swarms were before any widespread use of FRACing/gas drilling/injection wells in this area. This has to be considered. There are many people, some very highly educated geologists & geophysicists among them (I know they must all work for the companies that are drilling in the area, right?), that do not concur with the assumptions on this thread and elsewhere; that means they disagree with you, not that they are necessarily ignorant.

OK I will contact her, but I would like everyone's help to put together the email doing so, so that I don't forget everything and can make an impact and get her attention

Thank you these links are a big help, as I've been watching it now for a few weeks and could see when things were happening and not sure what direction the movement was. I'm still unsure on how to get the screen shot saved that you pause though.

OK I found it. If you are in the real time viewer mode, go to the help menu at the top menu bar,quick reference then export to pdf.

READ this thread. There is a claim on it about a worker on one of the drill rigs saying a bit came up with molten lava on it

As for the video, meh. Yes, I'm aware of the illuminati's perverse pleasure in using Hollywood to taunt & forewarn us dummies! But a month ago I'd read where an "insider" to the G20 summit reported that May 04, 2011 was the planned date for collapsing the US dollar. Is that believable? I think so....they've gotten emboldened and aggressive in advancing their agenda for our destruction. But as you advised, I too have been making contingency plans for almost everything, for close to 2 years now. Godspeed.

I understand why many people don't think the injection was causing the quakes. And frankly I don't care. They have a right to their opinion, whether it's right or wrong. Most of them don't understand the subject. Most them them don't even understand what happens under the ground during an earthquake. They only hear what they get from the media, and don't investigate.

Just before the movie Supervolcano, they did a poll and asked people what they knew about Yellostone.

"Results from a telephone survey conducted for Discovery Channel by Harris Interactive® reveal that only 22% of adults in America are aware of the term “supervolcano.” Supervolcano is a term used to describe a volcano containing a large caldera able to produce an exceedingly large, catastrophic explosive eruption, in some cases over 100 times bigger than the anything experienced by humanity over historic time. In scientific terms, a supervolcano implies a volcanic eruption of a magnitude of 8 on the Volcano Explosivity Index, meaning that more than 1,000 cubic kilometers of magma are erupted. When told that Yellowstone National Park, home of “Old Faithful,” is one of the few known examples of a supervolcano, 64 percent of adults surveyed said that they were unaware of that fact."

So when you have the majority unaware of scientfic facts, of course you're going to get ignorant answers when you ask for an opinion.

Hell, I was ignorant about fracking until relatively recently. People are overwhelmed with messages. They done studies that found that when given too many choices, shoppers have a difficult time making a decision.

The public needs to be educated. That's the thrust of this thread. Many Arkansans are unware of the extent and scope of the drilling. And remember the gas boys bring the jobs. If you remember the BP oil spill, many people that lived in the region did not want drilling to stop. People got to put food on the table. I understand this and don't want to disrespect average folks. Hell, I'm one. I don't even have a car. And live modestly.

Unfortunately, it taks a crisis to make this apparent and bring the issues to light. It takes and emergency meeting to halt the injections. I even don't think the oil guys are evil. Close. But the are just greedy and immoral. And shortsighted and , well, you get the idea. They're sleezy. Not demons. They're criminal negligent. What they are doing is a crime. They are laying waste to the landscape and the enviroment. They are poisoning the water and affecting human health. It's a shame this didn't the headlines scream crisis, or emergency. That took mother nature pushing back against the insult and harm we've unleashed upon her land and creatures.


I started this thread for one reason only. I knew there was going to be a large swarm and I fear for the people of the region. I knew there was going to be a swarm and I knew the cause of the earthquakes. I feared a bigger disaster. The two injection wells causing the earthquakes have been halted. This was a worthy cause, and the good guys scored a victory. I know the war is not over. I know the scope. I understand the problem.

I've been watching the webicorder. I'm not saying nothing at all.

As I found out tonight,people are ignorant to the facts presented to them as heresay and such.
We in the know a small circle ,will.....I'm sorry,i'm not a writer by anymeans.

We know whats coming and we will be prepared.It's a useless battle,fiend for yourself,and hope others will understand.
Good job Robin and thanks.

Here's an article by Geohazards specialist BK Lim...maybe will help from the other side...

"Shallow Earthquakes associated with the New Madrid Fault & BP's Mega Oil Spill".

Snippet
[Is there a common factor between the quake off Fort Morgan on 18 Feb 2010 and the recent swarm of quakes occurring in the vicinity of the New Madrid Fault zone? You are right if the BP Mega Oil spill and the Deepwater Horizon blowout on 20 April 2010 comes to mind.]
Snippet
[Since the 2Aug 2010 quake at Louisiana, we have been warning of more occurrences of such shallow low magnitude quakes. See figure 145-1 which shows some of the hidden series of NW-SE strike-slip fault lines typical of intra-plate movement. The fault chart (prepared in August and updated only with annotations) was only published on 10 Nov2010, Update On BP Rigs Location & the Fault Connection. ]

You all should have noticed by now how furious I am over the Wild West attitude of gas companies. And the politics involved. Of all the coincidence, there was an article in the paper about this today! Which brings me to what should be our next agenda. Getting the government to do what is right for the public vs the companies. Perhaps even finding out who those corrupt congress members are and getting them out of office.



"It was like the science didn't matter," study author Carla Greathouse said in an interview. "The industry was going to get what it wanted, and we were not supposed to stand in the way."




In interviews, several agency scientists and consultants, declining to be named for fear of reprisals, said the study was narrowed after pressure by the industry and allies in Congress, as well as budget and time constraints.

More evidence to consider:

Although a significant number of earthquakes inside the field are due to geothermal-related activity, the recent events are the largest ones observed inside the Coso geothermal field. Therefore, a connection between the nearby events and the earthquake swarms inside the field can be expected


and

Earthquakes in one cluster align along an injection well, well 1, and are thought to be caused by fluid flow (Fig. 8).A second population forms a subhorizontal cluster that might be located along a structural feature such as a fault; however, it does not have any surface expression on geologic maps (e.g., Whitmarsh, 1998).

and

The second sequence was initiated by two earthquakes with M  3.1 and 2.7, located at the junction of the fault and well 2. Compared to the first sequence, the number of aftershocks in this sequence is significantly fewer ( 17), and they have larger magnitudes ranging between M0.1 to 0.6.

and

The Coso Range earthquake of 1998 caused stress loading inside the geothermal field. Some of the largest earthquakes inside the geothermal field occurred within months of this event, although the events cannot be clearly related without further corroborative data, e.g., well logs.

There are some good illustrations in that report that clearly show the spatial relation of the hypocenters and the wells. Really worth a look.

Still looking for research disproving connections of induced seismicity and the extraction procedure of hydraulic fracturing.

Yes, the area has had seismic activity in the past.

Yes, there are injection wells and production wells in the area.

No, we cannot rule in or out either type of well as causative.

No, we don't know as much as we should.

Very glood question.... And I think we already know the answer. The evil politicians and gas companies will pay for their crimes, mark my words!
