Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Ohio Finally Links Fracking to Earthquakes

Posted by feww on April 12, 2014


Earthquakes Continue to Rattle Oklahomans

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has finally conceded that the hydraulic fracturing process (fracking), which involves injecting sand, water and chemicals at high pressure deep underground to help release oil and gas, may have produced earthquakes in Poland Township in March.

“Regarding the seismic events in Poland Township, ODNR geologists believe the sand and water injected into the well during the hydraulic fracturing process may have increased pressure on an unknown microfault in the area,” said ODNR in a statement release on Friday.

At least 161 earthquakes measuring magnitude 2.5 or greater, occurring  in and near the state, have rattled Oklahomans in the past 30 days.
