    You righties made a loud clamor against any suggestion that climate change was due to any human activity. Now, in the growing suspicion that “fracking” is causing earthquakes, you guys must clamor too now about something else.

    A USGS report says this about a recent upsurge in earthquakes in the Central US.

    While the seismicity rate changes described here are almost certainly manmade, it remains to be determined how they are related to either changes in extraction methodologies or the rate of oil and gas production.

    Like bank ATM's, airport kiosks and the Japan Tsunami, it's all part of our plot to bring down Obama.

    Curses! Foiled again!

    This is a big deal.

    Bill to ban 'fracking' clears N.J. Senate committee
    Friday, June 08, 2012, A New Jersey Senate panel has approved a bill to ban the practice known as "fracking," a controversial method of extracting natural gas.

    False. Earthquakes should only happen at fault lines. But with fracking, oil companies use seismic waves to find oil spots. These mid west earthquakes should not be happening, as there are no fault lines in the area.

    Wrong, Have you ever heard of interplate quakes? New Madrid near the Mississippi river, but there was a quake in 1812 as big as the San fransko 1906! These kinds of quakes are widespread in nature too.

    Another kind of quake can happen from hot spots(yellowstone), which moves throughout time on the plate....Not at a fault zone!

    Learn something.

    Actually it was bigger...

    ... rang churchbells in New England...

    ... created Reelfoot Lake in Tennessee...

    ... caused the Mississippi River to flow backwards...

    ... check it out...

    This is almost as good as the mental cases saying the Japan tsunami was caused by global warming.
