Another Texas earthquake whack-a-mole
As we recall in our continuing saga, Texas allows saltwater injection, and has never had earthquakes with this. But, greed being what it is, the injectors are tempted by the Fruits of Satan, which in this case means gas-frack waste. They mix it in and are shocked, shocked to get earthquakes. Then it takes forever for them to secretly own up, and you get a big mess, like up in Dallas.
I'm calling this one to be the next Irving, but the odds are low. We need a few more earthquakes to be sure.
Update: Nothing more, just like OK. Oh well, all these latest micro-hypotheses are going into the can. :(
