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?
If the results of this research are right, this huge quake would represent the US largest man-made earthquake ever recorded and raise many questions over the storage of waste-water from oil production underground. – Daily Mail
