No fracking injection sites near Virginia seismic zone


I always thought this was a natural fluid-controlled mechanism, like Toronto and others.  These things have been going on for millions of years.  But oh, what a great site for fluid injection!  :)  Could they have 'pumped' it up to an M6.5?  Those spoil-sports in Arkansas stopped things before they could get truly out of hand.  :(

Oh well, these sites are all over the place.  Like I said, if you do the numbers, we should be having a big earthquake quite often, but I think the New Madrid sequence caused a bit of a shadow.  We might be coming out of it now, and fluid injection would really take it over the top!  :)
