Is drilling dangerous? A report out today in the journal “Geology” concludes that a large earthquake in Prague, Oklahoma in 2011 was caused by oil drilling and the storage of waste-water deep underground. If you can remember the 5.6 quake was felt across 17 states (over hundreds of miles), injured two people, buckled a highway, destroyed 14 properties.
The conclusion of this report contradicts that of state seismologists who said it occurred naturally. No, Really?
