If you look at the google map of the area where the last quake occured, the 2.9mag., there are five fracking drill site within a 1.5 kilometer radius.
The 2.8mag. just before that was just 400 meters from a drilling pad. (that's about 1300 feet oldschool).
Although I am quite certain about the cause of the quakes, that's not why I started this thread. It's because these quakes are a precursor. February
is earthquake awareness month. I believe that the people of the Mississippi River Valley need to be actively aware and they need to take this
information and prepare.
Even if I could prove absolutely that fracking is the cause, it's not alone in responsibility. But it is the triggerman. All of these faults would
probably rupture one day due to natural causes. The problem is the intensity of the fracking and the speed at which it's ramping up production. This
will hasten the natural process.
In 1811/1812 the quakes spanned many months. The accelerated changes brought about by fracking and deep weel injection disposal may cause multiple
quakes over a much shorter timeframe.
Since it was way back in the early 1800's, there were few people in the area and there could have been swarms preceeding the coming quakes, but there
was no one to record them.
I know this is a conspiracy site. I appreciate that. But I hope we can focus on the quakes and the faults and the history. The geology of the matter.
Firm stuff rocks. Feel free to spin off your own thread if you want to explore HAARP, and other possible causes. Like I said, I got my suspect, but
the objective of this thread is to look toward the future and prepare.
Like the boys scouts and girls scouts preach, be prepared. "The more you know, the more you grow." Cause you're survived and are alive to do so.
