12. Straw man. Gees Louise!

Apparently you don't understand the argument (as Monty Python aptly stated is an intellectual process).

There are earthquakes in California all the time. They happen every day! All over the state. Regardless of fracking. (Actually, I don't know of any fracking in California. Do you?)

Again, California is part of the Ring of Fire which surrounds the Pacific Ocean and is all -- fucking all of it -- tectonically active, which means you get a lot of earthquakes and volcanos.

So you attributing an arbitrary earthquake in SoCal to fracking is just utter bullshit. Is there even any fracking being done in California? I doubt it with Governor Moonbeam back in power and the most liberal state legislature in the country.

If you post a credible source of any connection to this earthquake to fracking, I will stand down on my position and publicly apologize. I just don't think you are aware of just how many earthquakes happen in California every day and how little fracking causes them, especially if there is actually no fracking in California, let alone remotely close to this trembler.

Thanks for your replies.
