3/25/2015 — Texas earthquake at fracking operation — Major midwest movement underway

Over the past few days we’ve seen some major seismic activity transpire across the Colorado, Kansas, and Oklahoma region.  Specifically seeing multiple 4.0 magnitude earthquakes at the fracking operations in each aforementioned state.

Now the movement has spread South , and hit a fracking operation located near Venus, Texas.

Now that another earthquake has struck at a Texas fracking operation – quite literally directly below a frack pad – it will be hard for the Texas Railroad Commission (TRC) to deny the link between fracking, and earthquakes any more.

Over the past several months, the TRC has denied the link between fracking, and earthquakes, even going so far as to call the real science being done by investigative organizations, and specialists into question.
