My first thought is to wonder if there's any relationship between the earthquakes and local fracking for oil/gas?

not getting much attention, not surprisingly.

big one (7.8?) in Iran/Pakistan, 40+ killed?

I guess it's no big deal to have quakes same day so far apart, but it seems like a coincidence. I'm not a geologist so maybe this is normal.

With all the chemicals they are pumping in the ground is it any wonder? I rarely ever side with anything "green", but this is one time where I put my foot down.

Recently there has been a report correlating fracking and the earthquakes around here.

Of course there is. These guys have no clue. Have you ever tried takling to one? Everyone from a lowly grease monkey to a VP spew per-written statements and "facts" that only a 5 year old could take as even a half truth.

This does not have anything to do with "fracking"..There were earthquakes all over the world in the last 24 hours. Fracking gets blamed every time..We are near the New Madrid fault..Do you think "fracking" caused the one in Northern California last night? Look at this data before you blame fracking..

I am not in the oil industry, just don't believe much the Government and nothing the "scientist" tell us..They had so much "proof" about global warming, how did that work out? Oh yeah, Big Al (Gore) became a Billionaire...huummmm....

While localized seismic activity has always been acknowledged to occur whenever deep drilling takes place, there is zero evidence showing that fracking procedures can cause a) large quakes, and b) quakes that extend significantly beyond the immediate area of the drilling.

Here is "An Inconvenient Truth" before I show you the "Promised Land"..Just because one watches a movie, that action does not make one an "expert", it more likely makes one a rube being manipulated by people trying to make money under the guise of "climate change"..All science is fuzzy, the left claims it is not when it benefits them..

Fido, like others have said, there is no coorelation between fracking and earthquakes. Perhaps in a trial of hundereds of thousands of random events, maybe fracking could be a sub-cause of a minor rumble due to seismic pressure increase, but it would have to be the perfect storm on unstable plates...even then, it'd have to be a series of causes.

This is one of my major peeves, and an underconsidered factor. We like to think of science as idealogically pure, a bunch of Mr. Spocks operating on Sheer Logic. Instead science is politicized, seeking to please the donors and the University chairs that grant tenure, and the editors that decide who gets published. do you think any big-time science group today is going to conduct a study/experiment and conclude that fracking is harmless? no way, runs counters to all the other scientists (not to mention the hypergreen media).
I'm sorry to say, my faith in science today is very low, esp science involved with the academic community.

Let see. if I put a drop or two of WD 40 in exactly the right spot between two tectonic plates. WEE

WD 40 the lubricant that can move the world.

Sorry everyone, I couldn't help it. IMO anytime man sticks something in the ground that doesn't belong there or takes too much of something out of it someone eventually pays for it.

Three posts in to a thread about earthquakes and someone brings up politics.

Substantial quakes reported in OK since 1811. Big ones in 1852, 1918, 1929, 1952, 1953, 1956, 61, 68, 69 and a whole mess of them in 2009. Not really news because it's old hat with 50 quakes a year on average. You might as well blame it on global warming, canceled soap operas or ammo shortage. It's all nonsense put out by ninnies who have to have something to cry about and need something to blame.

It's called the Meers fault line and its been there for a lot longer than we have been there.

Since 1977 there have been more than 1,800 earthquakes located in Oklahoma.

My Great-grandmother said the reason the Earth was acting funny was because the white man landed on the moon. Always sticking their nose where it didn't belong.
