The technology is safe

Surprise, surprise.

Industry representatives say the link (of fracking to earthquakes) is not proven and that the drilling technology is safe.

I guess safe is relative.


I don't get it

Why do geologists care what the seismic readings are on land that is un-fracked? Go out to places the are fracked and see what's shaking there. Duh, it doesn't take a degree to know that any action creates a chain reaction. Ripples in a pond.

Oh, the Holy Grail

Super Fracking

“I want to crack the rock across as much of the reservoir as I can,” says David A. Pursell, a former fracking engineer who’s now an analyst at Tudor Pickering Holt in Houston. “That’s the Holy Grail.”
