Oklahoma Earthquakes And The Rise In Fracking

Our friends with Stop Fracking Payne County are featured in this new mini-documentary about fracking in Oklahoma. The Norman Fracking Forum which some EF!er’s helped pull off is featured as well.

“The earth is shaking in Oklahoma, and it’s far from normal –– a recent study by Cornell University and the U.S. Geological Survey has linked the state’s exponential spike in earthquakes with a surge in hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Imran Garda talks to worried Oklahomans and gets a behind-the-scenes look at how the chemical-laced water required to frack is disposed of.”
