Induced Earthquakes Shaking Our Boots

U.S. Geological Survey confirms, for the first time, that human-induced earthquakes are an increased threat to safety of millions. It appears that those in southern-central states have had the largest impact to their risk than other states, while naturally-occurring earthquake-risk states have been similarly affected.

 

The “Haliburton Loophole”

The following is excerpted from a Wikispace entitled “Social Problems  in Oklahoma”, category “environment”:

Hydraulic Fracturing, commonly known as “fracking” is rapidly spreading over Oklahoma as well as many other states and countries. This surge in fracking has been largely influenced by the 2005 energy bill, which included the “Haliburton Loophole”. This bill was championed by former Vice President Dick Cheney, who was previously CEO of Haliburton. This bill exempts the oil and gas industry from the clean water act, allowing the industry to go unchecked by any regulation.
