Fracking study shows ground shaking results

NBC News is reporting that Oklahoma geologists are noting links between increased seismic activity in the state and the injection into the ground of wastewater from oil and gas production. The state geological society released a statement saying Oklahoma is currently experiencing 2-1/2 earthquakes daily with a magnitude of 3 or greater.  In case you are wondering there have been zero documented cases of ethanol production causing earthquakes within the United States.
