Arkansas gets tough on injection wells


Haydar al-Shukri, director of the Arkansas Earthquake Center at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, testified Wednesday that his testing recorded nearly 10,000 small seismic events near the Deep-Six well. Most were too small for humans to notice.
But only 280 of those seismic events happened within three miles of the well, a sign that the well wasn't the cause of most of them, al-Shukri said.
"Because of this, I believe at this point, with this data, that there is no correlation," al-Shukri said.

Oh well, this had to come at some point.  The red devil on my right shoulder wanted it to go on longer, and see how big we could get.   :)  

Arkansas reminds me of Georgia, and how poorly educated a state can get if it pushes its own tea-parties down into education and gov't.  In Georgia, they got all nazi on migrant farm workers, and now these workers are passing the whole state and letting their onions rot.  The local bignazi is demanding that welfare mothers pick onions!  Can these people really deal with earthquakes?  :)
