Find Oklahoma Easter Sunday 2015

Find Oklahoma
Easter Sunday 2015

Many Oklahomans can still vividly recall the day they experienced their first earthquake. Ever since 2009/2010, earthquakes in the state have increased exponentially – leading to what are called “seismic swarms”. In 2000 there was not a single earthquake, but in 2014 we experienced 585 quakes of magnitude three or larger.

Oklahomans want to get to the bottom of this mystery increase of quakes and are turning to state officials for answers. As a state legislator, I am concerned that a conflict of interest in universities could get in the way of finding answers – and implementing solutions.

For some time now, scientists have wondered whether fracking-related activities, such as wastewater injection, might be the source of increased seismic activity in Oklahoma. In May of last year, the Oklahoma Geological Survey, an affiliate entity of the University of Oklahoma, released a statement in conjunction with the United States Geological Survey, saying that wastewater injection was a “likely contributing factor the increase in earthquakes”.

    I’ve been hearing about Oklahoma’s earthquakes for quite awhile now. It’s hard for me to believe nothing is done about that. They just keep fracking away, and the idiots among us think that’s great.

    I think I can settle back down to normal now, Easter and my grandson’s birthday, behind me.

    Bathroom 94% done, need the next one percent so I can take a bath, or better yet, a shower. Tuesday Brian will finish his part, leaving me to do the decorating. Oooo, this will be fun.

    Easter Sunday was pretty nice here. The kids were over for Easter and my turkey dinner. Pete and I got my two tractors out and him holding his son, we raced around the property and over my trails at the abandoned house next door. A good time was had by all. SPRING!!!
