Look at this: http://www.livescience.com/28983-w-mexico-ear...

An ongoing earthquake swarm in New Mexico and Colorado, which includes Colorado's largest earthquake since 1967, is due to underground wastewater injection, researchers said Friday (April 19) at the Seismological Society of America's annual meeting in Salt Lake City.

P.S. There's at least one volcano caldera in the area.

I accept that fracking and oil pipelines are solutions, not problems. But only if they are well engineered and maintained. The problem is that this 'costs money' so the actual industy has a BAD record and people react to this.

If fracking is to be used on any great scale, it MSUT be done responsibly and that would take a MAJOR change in the values we have as a society.
