  -Did Fracking Cause the Virginia Earthquake? Divernan  Aug-25-11 10:13 AM   #0 
  - not this time.  hobbit709   Aug-25-11 10:15 AM   #1 
  - I question the idea that it was fracking, too.  kentauros   Aug-25-11 10:19 AM   #3 
     - USGS says it's a previously known fault.  hobbit709   Aug-25-11 10:23 AM   #6 
        - True.  kentauros   Aug-25-11 10:36 AM   #13 
  - Ban or minimize fracking and frequency of earthquakes drops drastically.  Divernan   Aug-25-11 10:17 AM   #2 
  - I didn't know about quakes and fracking in Arkansas, West Virginia. and Texas.  Overseas   Aug-25-11 10:41 AM   #19 
  - This Virginia quake seems different, but injecting waste water into rock has caused seismic activity  Overseas   Aug-25-11 11:27 AM   #33 
  - So, you'd rather have less-frequent, more severe earthquakes?  slackmaster   Aug-25-11 03:31 PM   #52 
     - And you got your degree in tectonics where? n/t  truedelphi   Aug-25-11 03:35 PM   #55 
        - One need not have a degree in a branch of science to be able to spot an obvious bullshit argument  slackmaster   Aug-25-11 03:42 PM   #56 
           - Okay then, why not take on the facts in this article posted in "New Scientist"  truedelphi   Aug-25-11 05:00 PM   #59 
              - It supports my point completely.  slackmaster   Aug-25-11 05:34 PM   #60 
  - Could be...  Common Sense Party   Aug-25-11 10:21 AM   #4 
  - Is there fracking in the immediate vicinity of Mineral, VA?  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 10:22 AM   #5 
  - Occam's Razor is unknown to most people  hobbit709   Aug-25-11 10:25 AM   #7 
  - Yes, but the principle of it is just plain common sense.  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 10:33 AM   #10 
     - No angry comments from me!  kentauros   Aug-25-11 10:38 AM   #16 
     - There is, however, man-made compression in that area.  sofa king   Aug-25-11 11:01 AM   #30 
        - I would think that one way of determining if that lake has any effect  kentauros   Aug-25-11 11:05 AM   #31 
           - Interesting.  sofa king   Aug-25-11 11:37 AM   #35 
              - Gold mines are generally deeper than even coal mines  kentauros   Aug-25-11 11:44 AM   #36 
                 - The lake began filling in 1972. It was full in 18 months.  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 12:09 PM   #38 
                    - I guess I should have said "underground mining"  kentauros   Aug-25-11 12:40 PM   #42 
                       - Right. I don't think there was much of that in VA. It was the early  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 12:43 PM   #43 
                          - After scrolling down through that list,  kentauros   Aug-25-11 12:59 PM   #45 
                             - Yup. There you go.  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 01:09 PM   #46 
                                - Well, you do have to consider  kentauros   Aug-25-11 01:17 PM   #47 
  - +1 - nt  Ohio Joe   Aug-25-11 10:40 AM   #17 
  - The mother fracker, Eric Cantor, is from that region.  RedCloud   Aug-25-11 11:47 AM   #37 
  - There is hydrofracking going on about 160 miles away from Mineral, VA on the Marcellus Shale  w4rma   Aug-25-11 04:14 PM   #58

  - No...nt  SidDithers   Aug-25-11 10:28 AM   #8 
  - No - New Madrid fault line is right between the 5.3 and 5.8  Aerows   Aug-25-11 10:30 AM   #9 
  - The New Madrid Fault is not connected in any way to either the  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 10:35 AM   #12 
     - It's still interesting to note that  Aerows   Aug-25-11 10:37 AM   #14 
        - No. It's not really interesting to note that.  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 10:43 AM   #21

                       - !  Fuddnik   Aug-25-11 11:35 AM   #34 
  - Fracking doesn't have nearly the energy to cause an earthquake  robcon   Aug-25-11 10:34 AM   #11 
  - Not really disinformation, but incorrect association by people  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 10:38 AM   #15 
     - Kudos to MineralMan for not "faulting" anyone for asking the question  slackmaster   Aug-25-11 03:32 PM   #53 
  - Could be  Hutzpa   Aug-25-11 10:40 AM   #18 
  - Actually, the Virginia quake is in a known seismic zone.  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 10:44 AM   #22 
     - Ok lets say I'm wrong  Hutzpa   Aug-25-11 10:59 AM   #28 
        - I can't answer that question. It could, if the injected fluids were  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 11:22 AM   #32 
           - Great  Hutzpa   Aug-25-11 12:30 PM   #39 
              - Why would a company do that?  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 12:33 PM   #40 
              - A typical gas well drilled in multiple directions and fracked cost  Ikonoklast   Aug-25-11 03:16 PM   #50 
              - DAMN YOU! You uncovered my evil plan!  snooper2   Aug-25-11 03:32 PM   #54 
  - Oh please, everyone knows it was 'teh gay' marriage. nt  Lex   Aug-25-11 10:41 AM   #20 
  - There are plenty of good, solid reasons to oppose fracking without...  Silent3   Aug-25-11 10:49 AM   #23 
  - I wonder if a relatively rapid weight imbalance could occur from  Uncle Joe   Aug-25-11 12:38 PM   #41 
     - Again, probably not. It's all a matter of how deep the faults are and  MineralMan   Aug-25-11 01:58 PM   #48
