From 1975-2008, Oklahoma averaged less than six earthquakes above a 3.0 magnitude – the level at which they’re easily felt – per year. And then they started fracking.
From 2008-2013, Oklahoma recorded 278 earthquakes, or 46 a year.
In 2013 alone, the number of earthquakes of that magnitude hit 109.
And in the first six months of 2014? Over 230, according to Scientific American.
Now, I’m no seismologist, but …do I need to be? Because I think I’ve discovered Erin Brokovich’s new project.
Just saying. I’d like for “the big one” to be caused by the natural shift of the earth’s tectonic plates, not Conoco Phillips.
