There is always magma underneath somewhere!
Injection yes - but by the gas companies.

I watched Gasland last night. Oh....My....God.
For anyone with HBO on demand, it's in the documentary ( feature length) section.
I can not recommend this highly enough.
The amount of unregulated drilling is at epidemic proportions. These companies are exempt from all Clean air acts, all EPA regulation, clean water acts etc. The amount of water used at one site alone, and bear in mind, they can re-frack each well numerous times ( 7-15) times, is astounding.
They use 7 million gallons of fresh water per drill site, per frack...you do the math.
I saw last week I believe, that the Gov laid claim to all the water in the Great Lakes. I think we can all deduce where that water will be going. BTW, how smooth was it how they slipped that bill in while everyone was focused on Egypt.
It's an incredible account of what is going on and the water contamination, ecologically how it is taking pristine land and literally turning it into toxic dumps. Heartbreaking health problems for the families who's land has been ruined.
The wildlife in these areas...ugh, to see the horses with their hair falling out and emaciated. The amount of air water and land contaminates tested were at astronomical levels. The film doesn't even touch on the ramifications of how it is destabilizing the very foundation of the country, but a must see none the less.

I Just spent an hour checking the news papers and news stations in Arkansas for reports on whats going on.
They are reporting a few quakes individually but the Escort story is more important. It figures.
