CalTech Seismologist: Fracking Did Not Cause Earthquake

by Jennifer Van Laar, July 7, 2019, Red State Seismologists with the US Geological Survey and CalTech have been an invaluable resource for both the press and the public in the wake of two major earthquakes near Ridgecrest, California this weekend. They’ve given hours-long press conferences and answered detailed questions about the earthquakes that have… Read More CalTech Seismologist: Fracking Did Not Cause Earthquake

Matt Ridley Calls Out Environmentalists For Falsely Linking Fracking To Earthquakes

Toward the end of October, scientist and author Matt Ridley called out opponents of fracking for falsely claiming that fracking was causing earthquakes in Lancshire, Great Britain. Ridley stated in an op-ed in The Times of London: Last Saturday, BBC Radio 4 ran throughout the day with headline news about the shale-gas company Cuadrilla causing… Read More Matt Ridley Calls Out Environmentalists For Falsely Linking Fracking To Earthquakes

Study: Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) rarely linked to felt seismic tremors

Watts Up With That? From the UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, another political tool of the left bites the dust. Researchers find only one hydrocarbon-producing area where production is linked to increased seismic activities at the regional scale EDMONTON (June 26, 2017)–New research suggests hydraulic fracturing and saltwater disposal has limited impact on seismic events. For the… Read More Study: Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) rarely linked to felt seismic tremors

New study claims to make firm link to earthquakes and fracking

A new study from researchers in British Columbia, Canada is said to have made an affirmative link to fracking being the cause of earthquakes. The manuscript was published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America and The Globe and Mail states scientists involved in the research examined almost 700 earthquakes that took place… Read More New study claims to make firm link to earthquakes and fracking

Fracking implicated in earthquakes in North Texas and Ohio?

More fodder for environmentalists seeking to halt hydraulic fracturing or fracking. Earthquakes that have occurred in North Texas and Ohio have been associated with fracking efforts. One study cited in a news report published by Indian Country Media Network that was published in the journal Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA). reveals evidence… Read More Fracking implicated in earthquakes in North Texas and Ohio?
