    Ohio earthquake was not a natural event, expert says - Yahoo! News


    CLEVELAND (Reuters) - A 4.0 magnitude earthquake in Ohio on New Year's Eve did not occur naturally and may have been caused by high-pressure liquid injection related to oil and gas exploration and production, an expert hired by the state of Ohio said on Tuesday.

    Ohio's Department of Natural Resources on Sunday suspended operations at five deep well sites in Youngstown, Ohio, where the injection of water was taking place, while they evaluate seismological data from a rare quake in the area.

    The wells are about 9,000 feet deep and are used to dispose of water from oil and gas wells. The process is related to fracking, the controversial injection of chemical-laced water and sand into rock to release oil and gas. Critics say that the high pressure injection of the liquid causes seismic activity.

    I heard this discussed on radio. Fracking not only pollutes the water supply, but causes earthquakes.

    "...may have been caused by..."

    Evaluation pending.

    If corporations were allowed to do "whatever they want", operations would not have been halted as stated in that article.

    Perhaps real life people such as yourself shouldn't be throwing up red flags without reason.

    It's pretty funny to hear a person who can't even hold down a job thinking she can tell a corporation what it can and cannot do. :rofl:

    By the way, there's about 13,000 4.0 magnitude earthquakes a year. A 4.0 quake may rattle the dishes in your kitchen cabinet, but that's about the extent of the damage.

    But by all means, let's get our panties all in a wad over it and shut everything down, then sit and wonder why the hell petroleum prices are so high.
