And a thought occurs:

if fracking can supposedly cause earthquakes, why don't we see lots of them in the region around Fort Sill, in southwest OK? When the redlegs are live-firing the big guns you can feel the impacts for miles(especially the 8" stuff); and they've been using these ranges for decades.

We used to have earthquakes in Denver. When they got into the 4's the fault was identified and it was noted that Rocky Mountain Arsenal had been pumping wastes down a well that intersected it. The waste pumping was stopped, and the earthquakes with it.

Fracing involves a different technique and much less liquid. So far the quakes are in the 1-2 range.
