Earthquakes in US tied to fracking, says government

Who could have ever imagined that injecting high pressure water deep underground to fracture rocks could cause earthquakes?

A spate of earthquakes across the middle of the U.S. is “almost certainly” man-made, and may be caused by wastewater from oil or gas drilling injected into the ground, U.S. government scientists said in a study.

Switzerland, France, and New Jersay have already banned fracking, and for that very same reason. It causes earthquakes. And makes drinking water flammable.
