Drilling can and has caused earthquakes. It’s just common sense.

We mapped the location at and looks the Earthquake was right near the airport and some drilling sites. 10 miles deep.

Thanks for doing that mapping. I was too lazy. Can you provide a link?

Hmmm… Last night a speaker at the Arlington, TX City Council meeting was trying to tell the council members that numerous residents in southeast Arlington are feeling vibrations. Of course, one of the city councilmen tried to make her look foolish, and despite the warnings, Chesapeake gets their way again. We are pretty sure these ten drill sites in that two mile radius have something to do with making the earth move.

I’ve heard the same from other people. The residents of Bayou Corn were also laughed at when they complained of vibrations.

Some of the Arlington Council members did not attempt to hide their disdain for the residents who spoke against. I have spoken at council meetings far and wide and I have never seen anything like Arlington.
