Natural Gas Fracking Good at Creating Earthquakes

We’ve written about natural gas here on CleanTechnica a bit. It might be a useful transition energy source to help get us off coal and nuclear. However, at the current moment, methods used for retrieving it from the Earth are linked to flammable water and, it seems, earthquakes. I wrote about the possible link between fracking and earthquakes in Arkansas back in March. Now there’s news, from a company that engages in fracking, that it is probably linked to earthquakes in England. Of course, the UK’s Guardian has had a few pieces on this. Check out:
Here’s my quick piece on the matter over on Planetsave, where we cover the link much more frequently:
