It’s Official: Injection of Fracking Wastewater Caused Kansas’ Biggest Earthquake

EcoWatch has the article It’s Official: Injection of Fracking Wastewater Caused Kansas’ Biggest Earthquake,

The largest earthquake ever recorded in Kansas—a 4.9 magnitude temblor that struck northeast of Milan on Nov. 12, 2014—has been officially linked to wastewater injection into deep underground wells, according to new research from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

This should be no surprise to “experts”. Back in the late 1960s, I followed this story in the news. Maybe it caught my attention because I was in the Army, although in Frankford Arsenal in Philadelphia, not Rocky Mountain Arsenal in Denver.

Wstword has the article Denver earthquakes 40 years ago were caused by Uncle Sam, not Mother Nature published in Auguast 2011.

Despite yesterday’s earthquake that hit the Trinidad region, “Colorado is considered a region of minor earthquake activity,” according to the U.S. Geological Survey. But forty years ago, a series of quakes rocked the Denver area — quakes caused not by Mother Nature, but by Uncle Sam.

How? The Army was dumping dangerous chemicals into a deep injection well out at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal.

I wonder if modern day “experts” are too young to remember this or have not been taught about this in their engineering schools.
