Earthquakes are migrating to Colorado: Tribune Opinion: It’s time to take a deep look at earthquakes in Weld County


​"The quakes are not caused by fracking, which a Denver TV station reported on Sunday night. All the experts believe they are caused by injection wells, which it can be said is a result of the drilling activity in northern Colorado."


Injection Wells?  General Information About Injection Wells


So injection wells are used to help oil and gas wells. Fracking wells? 

Our Environmental Protection Agency doesn't seem to mention that Fracking is Exempt from the Clean Water Act? Natural Gas Extraction - Hydraulic Fracturing


Exempt you ask? The Halliburton Loophole


​Did the exemption get closed? 

H.R. 1482: Fracturing Responsibility and Awareness of Chemicals Act of 2015 


Odds of passing?  Prognosis Details

This bill has a . . .
4% chance of getting past committee.
1% chance of being enacted.
 


Hmm, I wonder why...  (Maybe we all know):  

5 Ways the Fracking Boom Changes Politics

The Texas town that banned fracking (and lost)


This water may not be safe to drink:

CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley - Penn. town blames contaminated water on fracking


In our past, the water was being polluted:

​​​​​​​​​Carson's book led to the 1964 Pesticide Control Act  and Lyndon B. Johnson and the Environment 

Regulation of Industry is one of the ongoing political struggles, between corporations wanting less regulation (we know how that worked out for our banks and mortgage lenders in 2008) and people wanting to be safe and secure:

No Need To

Limbaugh Looper 2016 Presidential Campaign

​​Hmmm....  When the oil boom went bust, Oklahoma protected drillers and squeezed schools


I understand the needed balance of the environment and jobs, peoples' safety and energy security.  But in my opinion the pendulum has swung WAY too far to the side of corporations and non-regulation.  People do not contribute to a candidate without expecting something in return (or that candidate may not get that contribution the next time they run?)

Rachel Carson wrote a book.​  I am glad we did things in the past to keep our country beautiful like choosing Bald Eagles over DDT:

Wastewater disposal is the primary cause of the recent increase in earthquakes in the central United States."  So it isn't the fracking that is the problem, it is what is left over and has to be thrown away that is the cause?
