This isn't intended to be a doomsayer thread, but it is what it is.

The practice of fracking is explained here:

About Hydraulic Fracturing Hydraulic fracturing is a proven technological advancement which allows producers to safely recover natural gas and oil from deep shale formations. This technology has the potential to not only dramatically reduce our reliance on foreign fuel imports, but also to significantly reduce our national carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and accelerate our transition to a carbon-light environment. Simply put, deep shale gas and oil formation development is critical to America's energy needs and economic renewal.

The earthquake activity around the world seems to be getting much worst than in the past. Here is a worldwide map of areas where hydraulic fracturing is occurring.

I pulled the pic from a website that is wondering if fracking is the cause of the sounds being heard worldwide and they also provide a map of where these sounds are being heard, here is the link:
Fracking is BAD, but is it the cause of...

So this practice is labeled as safe and effective, but is it??? Or have these oil and gas companies shattered parts of the earths crust? If so what can we expect?

Are the sounds being heard from the earth's crust? Are the seemingly increasing number of strong earthquakes directly from this practice?

Have they doomed us all? For the pursuit of profit?
