​​​Oklahoma Is Now as Much of an Earthquake Risk as California

September 3, 2016:  Newsflash!  

Oklahoma rocked by one of its biggest earthquakes in history

Does this chart match this FAQ?  I can't reconcile the two, can you?  Oh!  "Fracking is NOT causing most of the induced earthquakes. 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? Remind me against what is creating the wastewater?

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:

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

Odds of passing?  Prognosis Details

This bill has a . . .

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?
