No way... I find this charge from the environmental left to be quite amusing!

This and the idea that "Guam might capsize" may be the two dumbest things I have ever heard from the left.

The sky is falling the sky is falling. How dumb can you be to believe that one.

It is a proven fact that pumping liquids under high pressure into deep wells can cause fracking! The United States Army proved it!

Sorry I was thinking faster than I was typing.

Never mind the agenda-driven wack jobs, ask the scientists. The answer is NO.

"the injections PROBABLY triggered earthquakes in the region"

"...injected into underground deposits, COULD generate earthquakes too, and ..."

Howie, does the words "probably" and "could" mean a proven fact?

I can't vote, because to be honest, I have no idea.

And another vindy.com poll survey is hacked by a nationwide vote!

Do it by only registered voters.

ValleyRed,

I look forward to your explanation of the following pdf which shows the occurrence of earthquakes surrounding a collection of injection wells in Arkansas... http://www.aogc.state.ar.us/notices/E...

Tidal activity caused by the moon flexes the earth's crust far more than hydrofracturing ever could .

@jfuze0905,

That was exactly my point - there is no proof in the article that howardinyoungstown posted.

You mis-read my post.

There is a BIG difference between DRILLING for oil and gas and FRACKING for gas.
There is a much higher risk of polluting ground water if FRACKING is used to extract gas from shale. High pressure salt water mixed with chemicals is forced into the shale releasing the methane contained within the shale. But, the groundwater gets methane mixed in with it and makes it undrinkable. AND people turn their faucets on, light a match and burn their water.
Drilling into the shale to get methane is a much safer way than FRACKING.
Drilling through the shale into the bedrock is a much safer way of getting oil than FRACKING.
BEWARE OF FRACKING. BEWARE OF OUR GOVERNMENT (OR SHOULD I SAY THE INTERNATIONAL BANKERS WHO OWN OUR GOVERNMENT) THAT PROMOTES FRACKING.
