THERE IS A WHOLE LOT OF SHAKING GOING ON
It goes without saying that the state of Oklahoma has experienced a major upswing in the number of earthquakes we have on an annual basis. Oil producers would like you to believe that injection wells are not to blame for this. Environmentalist will have you thinking that all the contaminated water being put back in the ground will contaminate the safety of your drinking water. We have a staff member who has felt only one or two of these earthquakes but then again he slept through a 7.2 magnitude earthquake while he was stationed in California in the military. We are not here to make a judgement on this, however we are here to present to the public some information that they most likely missed on the evening news or any newspaper.
What got us interested in this story was this article . This is a report on a deposition given by the former state lead seismologist stating that he was pressured by his bosses and even the President of Oklahoma University, David Boren, to make injection wells less of a reason for the cause of the earthquake swarms we have been experiencing. Those people put the life, health and wellbeing of all Oklahomans below the needs of the oil and gas industry. Looks like President David Boren is stepping down at just the right time.
