British say that gas fracking causes earthquakes


Now, these are very teeensy earthquakes.  Some have argued that it is worth sacrificing Blackpool for the sake of cheap gas.  :)   The usually-required deep water injection is not mentioned here, I know that causes earthquakes.  I can't see ordinary fracking causing earthquakes unless the shale is right on top of the granitic basement.

In general, I don't see how you can continue fracking without the deep injection, but perhaps on the coast they just dump this toxic water in the ocean!
