The rate has jumped six-fold from the late 20th century through last year, the team reports, and the changes are "almost certainly man-made."
Method Predicts Size of Fracking Earthquakes
Science & Tech  (tags: discovery, energy, environment, earthquakes, fracking, interesting, research, science, world )

- 2534 days ago -
Small earthquakes are a recognized risk of hydraulic fracturing, or 'fracking', a procedure in which companies unlock energy reserves by pumping millions of litres of water underground to fracture shale rock and release the natural gas trapped inside.
Science & Tech  (tags: Earthquakes, Natural, Disasters )

- 2559 days ago -
Earthquakes, also called temblors, can be so tremendously destructive, it's hard to imagine they occur by the thousands every day around the world, usually in the form of small tremors. Some 80 percent of all the planet's earthquakes occur along the rim
Can We Predict When and Where Quakes Will Strike?
