    To date, there is no scientific certainty about any connection between fracking and oil wells. But that doesn't keep those that are unscientific from making unscientific absolute statements with the certainty that comes from ignorance.
    Thats going to turn out to be the biggest all time lie the eco-nazis come up with.

    It's not as big as the AGW lie but it's going to get busted before the AGW lie does. It'll probably be another 20 years or so before people give up waiting for the 2nd coming of Global Warming after the plateau.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    Brackish water is not being used exclusively...point one. The Ogallala is being uses as well.

    Producers may not want to use the fresh water Ogallala [upper aquifer], but they can not frack with brackish Santa Rosa aquifer[lower aquifer]water alone...too much salts. Costs way to much to desalinate for drilling.

    Salt water can be used for fracking.

    You are kidding me, right? You believe that the tectonic plates are shifting in Oklahoma? Please, all people who read this, go read up on where tectonic plates shift. It isn't in Oklahoma. This is geology 101, but this fool is trying to rook you into believing otherwise.

    Millions of gallons of water.

    Real earthquakes are caused by shifting tectonic plates. If it's not, it's not a real earthquake, anyway, and is much about nothing.

    Re: Is Fracking Causing the Oklahoma Earthquakes?

    I'll tell you what, since all of you seem to think this is fun and games. I've rounded up a few of my friends, and we are willing to stop paying the water bill in perpetuity until fracking stops in certain areas. Yes, I know people in Oklahoma. Like I said before, come closer to me, and see how seismic eruptions occur. Shall I pull the trigger?

    Re: Is Fracking Causing the Oklahoma Earthquakes?

    I'll do you one better. I will file a lawsuit against those who are fracking, and in my backyard, there will be a listening ear. Take your chances. Shall I pull the trigger? Or will you folks admit that what you did was wrong? And you knew about it.

    Too late. The trigger has been pulled.

    Interesting, I still do need more information, this is all theory right (the belief that the fracking waste causes shaking)?
