Oklahoma earthquakes took the weekend off
I am quite surprised by the total correlation between the long weekend and earthquakes here. There was absolutely nothing for the Labour Day weekend, and now we get an M3.7. Amazing.
Of course everybody now accepts that the injection is causing earthquakes. But they now believe they can keep them small and controlled by reducing the volumes of saltwater. Kansas is quite smug about this. Also, the coming age of free oil must be reducing things. I, however, think that active fracking in the East for local natural gas will more than make up for this. It's merely a question of when they stop dumping the stuff into the local creeks, and ship it to OK.
