USGS: 7 small earthquakes shake central Oklahoma

"And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand." Matthew 12:25

Fracking gives us cheap fuel

but at what price and who pays? Usually it's the ones that are living on the land before and after the fracking takes place.

Is Fracking Causing the Recent Earthquakes in Oklahoma?

"The seismic activity is curious to geologists because “Oklahoma is geologically part of the United States’ stable continental interior. As such, this region is not an area where we would expect regular seismic activity.”"
I talk to friends about this issue, and all they can say is, "Yeah, but we need the jobs." It's almost too frustrating to handle...

the disregard for the future, the lack of ability to objectively weigh pros and cons and set rational priorities, and the lack of respect for the earth.
"It appears to geologists that injection wells concentrate so much chemical laced water into the earth’s crust that there is an obvious increase in subterranean pressure near these underground faults which is causing the recent rise in earthquakes..."

Corporations don't "care".

Corporations don't feel. Yet, corporations are given the same rights as people!

Its ludicrous.

My First Though Was

Don't live there.
..and don't live there.
..and don't live there.

My second thought was:
As long as you do not live above an oil field, you are o.k.
Otherwise, you may have to relocate.

My third though was:
American Indians lived on land with gold and other things of value.
Look what happened to them.

My fourth thought was:
A terrible future where entire towns are relocated whenever something of value is found below their feet.

But ... there's no such thing as blowback!
