Are Earthquakes and Fracking Wastewater Injection Wells Related? Been thinking this for some time... | BORNEO SHARKARMA | Scoop.it

Two new papers tie a recent increase in significant earthquakes to reinjection of wastewater fluids from unconventional oil and gas drilling. The first study notes “significant earthquakes are increasingly occurring within the United States midcontinent.” In the specific case of Oklahoma, a Magnitude “5.7 earthquake and a prolific sequence of related events … were likely triggered by fluid injection.”
The second study, of the Raton Basin of Southern Colorado/Northern New Mexico by a U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) team, concludes “the majority, if not all of the earthquakes since August 2001 have been triggered by the deep injection of wastewater related to the production of natural gas from the coal-bed methane field here.”

Both studies are being presented at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union this week.
These studies, together with other recent findings, make a strong case that we need national regulations on wastewater injection to prevent induced earthquakes...

I think that If Frackjing Does couse earthquakes then the oil companies should stop. I think that based on the information provided that it is vertualy inposibe that the two things are niot conected. I also think that Injecting wastwater fluids is completly disgusting.

Tomorrow's life-saving medications may currently be living at the bottom of the sea

Tomorrow's life-saving medications may currently be living at the bottom of the sea | BORNEO SHARKARMA | Scoop.it

Jan 29, 2013 SCIENCE DAILY

Two new research articles demonstrate how the next class of powerful medications may currently reside at the bottom of the ocean.

Sea life studies aid researchers in several ways, including the development of new medications and biofuels. Because many of these ocean animal species have existed in harmony with their bacteria for millions of years, these benign bacteria have devised molecules that can affect body function without side effects and therefore better fight disease.... http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/01/130129130949.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencedaily%2Fearth_climate+%28ScienceDaily%3A+Earth+%26+Climate+News%29
