Irving Texas Earthquake Sequence - One Last Hurrah
I think this is the last gasp. All these earthquakes are horribly located, but they are moving in more seismometers after the horse has gone.
This is what I wrote on g+. Sorry that all you Feedly people missed it. :)
Irving earthquakes gone
Not with a bang, but with a whimper.
Raise a toast to the Irving earthquake sequence. It was fun while it lasted, even knocking a baseball player on his arse. How many times can they do this without people getting suspicious? Basically, the story goes like this: Some bright young thing thinks he save a mint for Daddy by not shipping frack waste to Oklahoma. He slips it into the normal stream of deep salt water from standard oil extraction. Who would notice? Then the earthquakes start. For a while, everybody just looks innocent. Who me? Then the guys with the rubber hoses come and beat the crap out of everybody. Meanwhile, the guy in the shower falls. By the time they got the story straight, we've got a good earthquake sequence. Then they wrap up the frack waste and send it to OK. Can't wait for the next one! :)
Even if there are a few more earthquakes, I think this is true. This is the real Texas Conspiracy, not that other one. :)
Update: Latest official word is "We have seen no disposal wells in the area.", said with eyes closed, and a very tight definition on 'disposal'.
