agree....in my opinion i think they have a ho hum type approach to it...a "oh just a few earthquakes here in Arkansas...hehe, how neat!" irritates the hell out of me!....and like you said they don't research!

And here's how reports are not exactly correct. There have not been 50+ quakes in the last week. It's closer to 125+ quakes in the last week. The USGS is not listing the small ones. I guess they don't matter.

With some discussion on volcanoes I did a search for volcanoes in Arkansas. Apparently on Jan. 15 1856 in southeastern Logan County, Arkansas a volcano erupted Logan county, more specifically Boonville is approximately 80 miles from Greenbrier.

That sounds more like a natural gas field ignited.

In reguards to this information, please look at this thread I posted a couple days back

It's very strange... shows some unknown volcanic area?

Just now had time to get online - can't believe all the quakes since I went to bed last night. They are getting bigger as well!! Any ideas besides fracking as to why these quakes are in the same area. The fracking has got to stop - when will idiots stop messing with Mother Earth. All for the mighty dollar - lives evidently don't count.


Keep your guard everyone - the weekend concerns me.

Hope to hear from Kathy and Derek soon.

I have just got to watch 72 minutes of Gasland. It was enough. I won't use torrent sites so I will have to leave it at that. This is my recommendation.

Find a large tanker - the biggest you can get. Empty all the tanks. Fill them with all the gas companies, geologists, commissions, government agencies and anyone else who permits this travesty. Seal the holds.

Sail it out to the Marianas Trench and SINK IT!

It might be good fun to waterboard them all with spent fracking fluid first however.

By the way I am a pacifist at heart and don't like violence but may I be first please!

How ANY geologist can in all honestly hold up their hand and say that fracking does not cause any problems is beyond me. They should be stripped of their degree as a minimum, but I prefer the option above. I have had a healthy dislike and distrust of scientists for quite some time now.

Today completed it. I will never ever trust anything 'establishment scientists' say again ever. They are the biggest bunch of wholesale arse saving liars it has ever been my displeasure to have to listen to. The American government is a disgrace to the civilized world to permit this travesty to be carried out without any checks and balances. The likes of that complete idiot Cheney who has no interest other than self-serving interest, and the rest of the bunch of politicians and government agencies such as the EPA who pander and fawn to big business and run your country for the benefit of the bankers and business and themselves with absolutely no concern what so ever for its citizens do not deserve to be permitted to breathe the same air as human beings for they are not human. By the way they are not animals either. Animals are WAY above them in the order of things.

How ANY of those people involved in fracking sleep at night I do not know.

It was obvious from the film that many people have signed these leases and benefited. You can be pretty sure however that they were not told what other 'benefits' they might receive so I am not blaming them for signing. They would know better if they were ATS members.

This will not stop until a gas field has exploded. (After writing this I saw the post above re the volcano. Ignited gas perhaps. It happens in Russia.) This is what the people of Arkansas and other gas areas have in store I believe.



You all need to make your voices heard.

[SIZE=4]PROTEST LIKE AN EGYPTIAN[/SIZE]

Block all major cities in peaceful protest. Get up and get out there. The TV will still be there when you get back. Better still throw it away. I have not watched TV for two years now.

The citizens of the US should be revolting now.

I have lived up around Greenbrier for the past 15 to 20 years, and never once have I noticed the amount of quakes BEFORE the oil companies moved-in. They seem like they run over the environmental country-side like "Borg" of Star Trek and "Resistance is Futile," when they want to "suck-up" all of the resources to make money.

They ruin the roads with their speeding trucks, which impose dangers to rural residents which travel the narrow county roads. It's not unusual for the trucks to be over the yellow-line and in "your" lane and pass-by going 70 mph or more. They are going to kill someone eventually with their laxadaisical disregard for human beings for what? The lure of quick profit by "fracking the hell" out of Arkansas' natural resources.

I read that Chesapeake Energy sold their natural gas assets to Exxon for 600 or so million dollars. Alot of people up here are complaining they are not getting paid money due them for mineral rights. Those wells just come-in and drill and how can you tell if they are not "stealing" with horizontal drilling? You can't.

The latest in Arkansas in the news is the legislature is requiring the oil companies to disclose the percentages of the compounds in their "fracking" fluid and a current act of legislators is to limit their "immenent domain" procedures which can allow an oil company to declare that and move-in and "run-over" a land-owner's surface rights. It's pathetic. I wish they had never moved here. IF you think it's bad in Faulkner County, just go North a bit and see the "Cluster Frack" or wells in Conway and Van Buren Counties.

If they set-off a major quake here, those oil companies might find theirselves being tarred-and-feathered in the same "fracking fluid" they poision our precious water tables with. They really need to do a little research about environmental damage they are doing running amok like greedy "frackers" they are. Do it right or get the hell out, I say.

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.


Do you get the feeling the media is downplaying the story?
Or do you think they're being lulled into apathy by the officials?

Edit to say, by my rough count, since this flurry began on the 15th, there has been about 115 quakes of varying magnitudes. Of course the lists provided by the USGS do not have all the smaller ones on it. Even the ones from the 15th have yet to show up.

....so being a newby here to ATS and not quite losing my computer tech virginity quite yet but trying to learn as i go, i found a local news sight that has links to numerous stories on all these quakes we've had here in Arkansas of past weeks....www.4029tv.com... i would try to link it properly but .....well ya



Yes, the media is starting to take notice. It's hard to ignore buildings shaking and a large group of residents alarmed and blaming the drilling. But most of the reports are cursory. They don't get into detail and some avoid the topic of fracking and just list the quakes. The best report has been from the NY Times.

But all the reports fail to do enough research. Because they all miss the scientific proof that deep injection wells cause earthquakes. Someone post the Colordo research again, I don't have it handy. Man, I'm sloppy.

But here's the NY Times article.

www.nytimes.com...



Is this the one you were referring to:

“In regards to the report from the Energy and Commerce minority members, first, the memorandum of agreement was focused on the shallowest of hydraulic activities, in coal-bed methane,” Schuller said in an email to The Colorado Independent. “Second, use of diesel for hydraulic fracturing was placed under the Safe Drinking Water Act in 2005. However, EPA never went through the public rulemaking process, or even provided guidance to the states in this regard; thus, there was not a regulatory framework for permitting or reporting hydraulic fracturing with diesel through EPA.

It certainly is plain that those who are pushing forward for his to be allowed do not want any investigation into the hazards to people and the en ironment and are doin everything they can to sidestep the issue.

Puterman, you'd better watch that Jungle Book video you posted for me on the Yellowstone thread.

Seems I lit a fire in your belly. Where's my charts? The quakes seem to slow during the day and then pick up at night. Am I right?

Here is a site that gives relative position and brightness of the moon based on time and location. You choose the zip code and date. It does not include or ital parameters such as apogee or perigee bu those should be easy enough to find.

Ok so for some time ive been thinking this over. Now if Harp does cause earthquakes. how would they do it. is there a coralation to nightime and quakes?.

I use this as guide, www.smeter.net...
when there is a large quake I go to that site and check on where the moon is.
Ive come to notice that when the shadow of the moon (as to where the shadow of the moon is relitive to the quake).
my observations of doing this over the last 6 months,
A. Most large quakes are when the moon is over that area
B. Most quakes happen at the edge of the shadow as I call it.
C. If harp is a factor then i would believe the signals are bounced or intensified using the moon.
D. I dont believe in conspiracy's lol. I believe in mans ability to fark man lol

Ive been having a look at all of the helicorders located here and have noticed that all of the major spikes which represent the quakes seem to have died down since the 4.3 with only a few small bumps since then.

I am concerned at the number of them that show the low-level long-lasting harmonic tremors that seem to have taken their place.

For those of you who have the knowledge, how differed is this effect from the sudden high-energy release of a quake?

It has quieted down. Might pick up tonight. There are no harmonic tremors.
