I have read this thread from the beginning and one thing keeps gnawing at the back of my head. (and may I just add first that a good researcher always keeps an open mind) It has been stated that this area in Arkansas is an ancient caldera; one that even produces diamonds. Yellowstone is also a caldera, albeit, not quite so ancient. Since Yellowstone is a caldera and there are earthquake swarms there, is there a "possibility" that this may also be a natural phenomenon, but one that we have never seen before simply because we haven't been on this earth long enough to witness it ?? OR is it unlikely because of the type of geological structure of the earth there? Or is this not a possibility at all and why not??

Florida yes - it was noted as such but appears to be in Alabama. I am trying to find a map of the connection and yes there is a connection.

Assuming that is 11:30 UTC then no and it does not appear to have been posted in the listings yet. I can see one at 11:25pm with a couple following so I guess they will get posted eventually.edit on 18/2/2011 by PuterMan because: (no reason given)

For example, many fracs in the Montney play use CO2 as the frac fluid. Furthermore, water is not a good candidate for use as a frac fluid for the shallow shales of the Colorado Group of southeastern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan because of their sensitivity to water. Operators there appear to be using nitrogen or a mixture of propane and butane as the frac fluid instead.

A few things:
We have another incoming flare.
We have just has a M6.6 flare from the Sun Source
Yesterday the USGS had on Their list the 3.8 as being significant. Today, this quake has been removed and the 4.3 has been put in it's place - no mention of the 3.8 or the 4.0. Source on top on the right hand side.
They had better hope there isn't a unknown magma chamber where They are drilling. Add Pressurized Diesel Fuel or the like to a magma chamber and it will blow this earth right out of orbit. --- And They want to do this near Yellowstone ---- as Robin said = insane!edit on 18-2-2011 by Anmarie96 because: (no reason given)
