More Earthquakes - albeit not in the UK - yet.

A recent wave of small earthquakes in and around the Eagle Ford formation in Texas was probably the result of extracting oil and in some cases water used for hydraulic fracturing, according to a recent study.

Read the report here:

We are reminded of the 1,500 minor earthquakes deemed to have been caused by the re-injection of contaminated fracking water in Arkansas shortly before the UK government's Energy and Climate Change Committee made it's umpteenth 'fact-finding' visit over there. Seems to have been lost on them.
