You really can't beat a good headline.
Ohio earthquakes linked to fracking
My first thought was whether I knew anyone in Ohio who might have been killed or injured. Having decided I didn't, I relaxed a bit and envisioned devastated cities, fallen buildings and roads ripped up.
They are talking about 1 or 2 on the Richter Scale.
For fuck's sake!
Herself whacks off bigger explosions than that after a feed of onions.
I have been know to hit a 3 after a good Vindaloo.
Lorries driving up the road probably cause a greater shake.
The Earth's crust is constantly in motion, A seismometer is rarely still. "Earthquakes" [or to give them a more accurate name – minor tremors, or microearthquakes] on the scale of 1 or 2 happen on a daily basis just about everywhere and only the most sensitive instruments can detect them.
So maybe the headline should read –
Nothing out of the ordinary in Ohio linked to fracking
It makes more sense.
