Football has a two week break waiting for the 1st of Feb.
That means I have time for other interests and, Lo, came a headline to grab my interest.
earthquakes wake up part of KAKEland
Updated: 01/19/2015 – Scientists with the Kansas Geological Survey are now convinced most of the state’s quakes relate to fracking.
Talk about climate change. This should get a discussion going. Personally speaking, if you rotter till a plot the ground settles, due in part to the evaporation of moisture from the aerated soil. Much as is happening in Fla., with the sink holes created by removing the ground water nature uses to support the lands.
No scientist, I.
I just don’t understand, if one theory of oil creation is pressure, then fracking breaks up the land, you suck up a substance, creating space which was helping support adjacent structures, thus weakening the overall edifice and, like the rotter tilled plot, it sinks until it can support itself again.
I won’t hold my breath until science gives us an answer, I’ll just duck my head and listen to the arguments.
At least they’ve been small quakes.
Although, the rock under my portion of Kansas is only 3,000 feet deep. It’s all those holes they’ve drilled through it getting to the oil that was there.
Can you say, Lace.
