Natural Science 301 Guidelines

This is an open forum area for all members for discussions on all issues of science and origins. This area will and does get volatile at times, but we ask that it be kept to a dull roar, and moderators will intervene to keep the peace if necessary. This means obvious trolling and flaming that becomes a problem will be dealt with, and you might find yourself in the doghouse.

As usual, Tweb rules apply. If you haven't read them now would be a good time.

  • Surge in Oklahoma earthquakes

    This file is too large for me to embed here, but this graph is one reason why I find the explanation for the surge in Oklahoma earthquakes that "it's near fault lines so of course there will be earthquakes" to be unsatisfying. Why the sudden dramatic increase now? The obvious answer of fracking seems too inconvenient for many to admit.

Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

      There is excellent evidence that fracking fluid lubricate and weaken fault zones.

          They've been dismissing fracking as the cause of earthquakes in North Texas as well, but people know better.
          I'm not here anymore.
