Earlier this year, USGS scientists released a study saying that a “remarkable increase” in earthquakes in the middle of the country is “almost certainly man-made” and pointed to oil and gas-related activity as a likely culprit. Their findings, though, didn’t mention the magnitude-5.3 earthquake in Colorado and specifically excluded the magnitude-5.6 rupture in Oklahoma.
Use common sense.
