    It's not theory when you have seen it happen again and again. At some point theory becomes scientific fact, and hey, those are people's houses that are being torn apart by this theory.

    That's dangerous thinking, if we just stopped fracking operations to test out if the theory is correct our supply of natural gas, coal, etc. will stagger. And we would have to stop the operations for a while to observe and collect data and hypothesize and then finally make a conclusion, and if we make a wrong conclusion then earthquakes would continue and we'd be none the wiser. If we make no conclusion because it is still unclear we would have stopped operations and people out of jobs for no reason.

    Those are just two ways as to why this thinking is dangerous, you have to think about the economic aspect mainly and you also have to realize that to test out and prove this theory will not be quick.

    For something to be realized as a scientific fact doesn't involve a one minute process you realize right?

    Uh-huh. Confirmed. Not even the US Geological Survey, or the folks who got their stuff published in Geology make such claims.

    Perhaps when those with an agenda are eliminated from influencing the reviews, a better understanding of the process would emerge. As it is now, the agenda is not being driven by science as much as ideology.

    Post 65 wasn't complete. Anyway, only foolish people think that those with environmental concerns have agenda. Unless, wanting, clean air, clean water, stabile ground, and temperate climates is an agenda.

    Ohio finds link between fracking and sudden burst of earthquakes

    http://articles.latimes.com/2014/apr...uakes-20140411

    Fracking DID cause 109 earthquakes in Ohio, confirm scientists as opposition to controversial process grows

    LOL

    Tired hyperbole is rather pointless. Perhaps Enviros could refrain from comments that vaporize all credibility. It's actually rather insulting, but does prove how empty the religion is.

    Hyperbole, I'm glad your not in charge of anything important. Thankfully, people with sound mines are paying attention, pressure is mounting AGAINST the practice of fracturing our sub surfaces.
