Induced seismicity?

In response to the recent blowout and fire at a natural gas well in Greene County, Butler’s mayor says this should be no deterrent in future gas wells or exploration.
Well, mayor, if not a deterrent, then how about a wake-up call?
Right now, in Oklahoma, they are investigating hydraulic fracturing as a likely cause in a tremendous rise in earthquakes measuring between 3 and 4 on the Richter scale.
As I have stated before, it all comes down to the almighty fracking dollar.
