Yet another minor earthquake in Johnson County This is clearly a result of fracking where explosions are setoff in rock deep underground and then waste water is pushed into the rock to force out the methane(natural gas) from the rock.

Cleburne, in Johnson county, doesn't allow fracking anymore after they were hit with at least 6 minor earthquakes.

Texas has no none active fault zones. Apparently, Johnson County has a minor fault which became active after the Fracking began.

I recall reading many years ago about Denver Colorado having earthquakes back in the 60's. The Quakes were determined to been created when Denver began pumping waste water deep underground as a means of disposing of it.
Haven't we learned anything in the past 30 years about pumping water deep underground

I'm waiting for a Texas law that only allows fracking near Democrats <g>

since there aren't many in Texas, that would be a very limited law and decrease production 10 fold

You mean there are not many Democrats in Texas?

Or rather there are not many Democrats in Texas that are allowed to vote.

And as to production -- Texas is one of those difficult to get abortion states -- so how would one limit the production of future Democrats?

OK -- I suspect it's getting a tad thick here <smile>

Gary, I understand -- before the current Republican domination, there was the Democrat domination (from the 40's to the mid 60's). One thing of course that flipped matters -- the Johnson Civil Rights bill -- that, along with the Republican southern strategy, got all the old school states rights Democrats of the earlier period (including folks like Mansfield, Russell, Long, Byrd, etc.) to become Republicans (or die off).

The south will remain the preserve of the Republicans until demographics shift things.

When the Democrats gain power, they will gerrymander unto the Republicans as the Democrats have unto them.

Texas has the second worst schools in the country. Mississippi exists so Texas won't be last.

Remember a poorly educated parent tends to produce poorly educated children and so on. Texas prides itself with witty slogans that are easy for the poor white folks to remember. Like Right To Work State. Sounds good but it lowers wages. Not exactly what I call progress.

I have Google Maps on the web open in another web-page right now and I am currently looking down at skildude's home state, Texas.

Guess it is a large state when it comes to area! How big is this state in either square miles or kilometers?

Still, most of it is flat when it comes to the area of the land above the ocean. Most of the area is agricultural outside the big cities like Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth, as well as San Antonio, Abilene, Lubbock and Wichita Falls.

Compare with Ohio, which had two very big earthquakes in the early 1800's.

Probably around 1811 or 1812. I may well check it out.

Of course I do not wish for such a thing to happen. Rather the opposite.

But perhaps there should be an advice sent out in order to get people be prepared for any scenario if the worst thing possibly should happen?

Still 2012, isn't it?

yep that map shows that Texas has virtually no seismic history. I think its unique that just north of the Texas border in Oklahoma is a minor mountain range that has about a 10X chance of getting shaken

Skill, don't you think ID and Dull would be much happier campers in Texas than in most other locales?

very much. a confused person and a religious zealot would fit right in here. Heck, they wouldn't be a blip on the radar. Though being a Protestant religious zealot would be more appropriate for Texas

Barry, IIRC some time back I suggested that they form a team.

Dave, might be neat if all those nativists in this country were compelled to put up or shut up and prove their bona fides by demonstrating lineage IN North America prior to 1607.

I'd be packing my bags if they look past 1907
