    i agree about the frakking, oil companies breaking the earth up and making billions. Time to shut them down before they implode the whole world.

      This, and the unexpected earthquakes in Arkansas recently, may very well be due to all of the hydraulic fracturing (Fracking) that the natural gas industry is doing, injecting liquids at high pressure, which surely must decrease friction on the faults. Here is information from the AP re the increase in earthquakes in Oklahoma:
      "Oklahoma typically had about 50 earthquakes a year until 2009. Then the number spiked, and 1,047 quakes shook the state last year,"
      Will nobody step up to stop the natural gas profiteers who are putting our land and our water at risk without proper safety studies? Where are government regulators when you really need them?

    Why did I have to come to the website to find the earthquake in OK even mentioned? I have been watching CNN for two hours and not one word about it. It were in South America, or on some island in the China sea, it would be repeated every 15 minutes. Lets try covering current news on your TV channel that affects the people in the midwest too.

    I'm curious to why a 5.8 magnitude earthquake on the east coast is all over the news for weeks, but when it happens in the midwest its dust in the wind.
