I can't make this stuff up! This has all the makings of a great movie: 'Quake Jaws'.
Seismologists have humour:
“I have been asked to have ‘coffee’ with President Boren and Harold Hamm Wednesday,” states an email Holland wrote to a coworker on Nov. 18, 2013.
“Gosh. I guess that’s better than having Kool Aid with them … I guess,” the co-worker replied.
I honestly think they did drink the Kool-Aid, perhaps only a little sip. :)
Update: More detail here. And another great quote.
"Myself and a few other geologists that know of the Hunton dewatering oil operations in the affected areas and subsequent re-injection into the Arbuckle [are] the culprit," wrote Andrews, who is now the interim director of OGS. "I am dismayed at our seismic people about this issue and believe they couldn't track a bunny through fresh snow!"
Update2: Newsweek now carrying this. Soon it will reputable places like Wash Post, and Times. :)
