A very rare earthquake occurred in Northwest Colorado directly at an Oil / Gas production operation (fracking).
In the 5 years I have been covering these events online, this is the FIRST earthquake in NW Colorado that we have seen (naturally or man made).
This means excess pressure is building upon the Western “edge” of the craton — showing now as earthquakes across California, Colorado, and Oklahoma at the Oil / Fracking operations.
In this case, certainly the Oil and Gas pumping operation directly above the earthquake epicenter is a telltale giveaway as to the cause of this new movement.
This fracking / oil pumping earthquake comes on the heels of multiple earthquakes occurring at the oil pumping / fracking operations around Los Angeles, California, which is being denied by officials (such as Dr. Lucy Jones) as having anything to do with the oil operations above the earthquake location !
This Colorado oil / fracking earthquake also comes on a day where Dutch officials in Europe have decided to LIMIT fracking operations due to excessive earthquake activity beginning to develop in the Netherlands (or the threat thereof).
The United States is in “denial” still — meanwhile the operations in question across California, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas all continue to show MORE movement rather than less.
We’re going to see things spiral out of control here in the United States, particularly from Oklahoma Westward to California (through Colorado + Nevada) at these Oil / Gas pumping operations.
The earthquakes will grow in magnitude and in their overall number of occurrences (frequency). It will become as obvious as Oklahoma is now– across Colorado to California.
We will see upwards of 4.0M to 5.0M+ events strike MULTIPLE times at these operations over the next 1-2 years or less. Right now the warning signs are popping up at the pumping operations along the Western portion of the Craton (just like in 2011 across Oklahoma).
Back in 2011 Oklahoma ignored the warning signs, and denied the earthquakes were related to Fracking / Oil extraction — this lead to a complete fracture of the ancient fault system BELOW the state.
This newly active ancient fault zone , which now has become active after eons of silence due to the pressure placed on the faults from above.
