for some thats a dirty word
for others its money in the bank
thats fracking

if you live in states like arkansas texas oklahoma new mexico
colorado alabama kansas ohio
then you may feel one way or the other

if you work for the oil drilling business or work in a job
that spins off that business
you probably dont mind that fracking
that shaking that comes with earthquakes


oklahoma went from less than 10 quakes a year
up to over 900 quakes a year
granted they are small ones
if you arent use to them
you dont live in california then its a little unsettling

when i was in my early 20s
i moved to calfornia and was in several large earthquakes
with their lengthy aftershocks
for this country boy from rural arkansas
it was pretty unsettling

kinda like folks from california that move here
to central texas
are scared real shaky like with the thunderstorms
and tornado warnings
tornadoes we have

now if you are a homeowner in those fracking earthquake
yes it can do damage
like cracks in the foundation
you may lose a few things falling off the shelf
probably they wont get hit by a big one

it seems the earthquakes
the large increase in numbers
are actually caused when the fracking water is injected into
a well for storage

there is some earthquake activity when fracking itself is done
but most are caused by injecting the used fracking water into wells

it seems though thats not good to store millions of gallons of
that contaminated water underground
nothing good can come of that

if the area has shifting plates
those guys rub togetther and shift causing earthquakes
the lubricated contaminated water lubricates the plates
so they shift
leading to earthquakes

now one good thing about the downturn in the oil drilling business
in re to earthquakes
is that there is a drop off now in the numbers of quakes in those areas

it just that people who depend on the oil business have lost their jobs

as a green person and environmental person with what i think
is a reasonable outlook on all this
people gotta work you know
there is a limit though
it just seems nothing good will come of pumping all that crap
into the earth where it will never ever
in your kids and their kids etc lifetime ever go away

its more pollution
which we just cant see
well unless it gets in our drinking water

we can only
feel it
