    That article focuses mainly on Oklahoma - most of the earthquakes tied to fracking are usually magnitude 2 or 3, but there was one last decade that was a 5.6 - pretty significant for an area that previously didn't have many fault lines known to scientists.

    You've got to be very careful where you do fracking - you certainly can't do that in seismically active zones on the West Coast, for example.

    I'm hoping we can return the rule of law to the Justice Department:

    Hey Paul, do you know what scientific field I have worked in for 25 years? Environmental science. Scientific American is biased liberal; their only science is political science.

    Yikes! You're saying that introducing all that wastewater into the Oklahoma ground for fracking did NOT cause the increase in earthquakes?
    I mean really...are you saying that? They just sort of magically had a 900 fold increase in quakes.

    Here, I'll help you out with a reference that will help:

    Simple solution. No more wastewater injection wells. We haven't felt an earthquake here in 5 years. They had become a pretty regular thing.

    I agree on the wastewater injection. nasty stuff. Biggest problem I have with fracking now is the companies go belly up after paying themselves huge bonuses and leave the site cleanup to us. They should escrow the cleanup funds before they even start the job.https://www.desmogblog.com/2020/10/1...up-bill-public

    He might be. Covid should tell you all you need to know about the accuracy of science and how it changes. Good thing we modify.

    I applaud him because that’s his job.

    Either you are one of those crazy people who believe in science, or you stayed at Holiday Inn.

    Perhaps the biggest joke of the year is trump announcing "character counts week", which, of course he immediately violated at his superspreader events:

    "virus will go away".... 69k new infections yesterday. He's just adding more numbers to the total. Despicable.
