Why Some Agree That Hydraulic Fracturing IS NOT causing earthquakes 1:
As stated by Becky Oskin, “Fracking is not the cause of quakes. The real problem is wastewater” Fracking is not the reason why Earthquakes are happening in states that were less likely to have an earthquake. Some experts believe disposal of wastewater into deep wells is to blame. Fracking occurs when drillers drill fluids under high-pressure underground and the rocks crack and release oil and gas that come to the surface. But this process produces billions of gallons of wastewater where drillers have no choice but to inject water underground at high pressure and triggers earthquakes. For example, Oklahoma was one of the states that were highly affected. Billions of water were injected in Oklahoma and the state was experiencing earthquakes. Furthermore, this article will be a good source for the essay because it gives a different point of view about fracking. Wastewater is the main topic in the article and provides readers with detailed information on how the disposal of water can be the reason for earthquakes occurring. The article provides a map where readers can observe Oklahoma’s increase in earthquakes throughout the years. Additionally, this article can also be helpful because it provides a gallery of photos of real-life people that were affected by fracking and gives the readers an idea of how the fracking process can damage people’s lives.

According by this article, “Despite claims to the Contrary, Science Says Fracking Not Causing Increased Earthquakes,” fracking is not a direct cause for the increase of earthquakes in Oklahoma. Banning fracking will not stop the shaking. What is causing the earthquakes are wastewaters in wells. Yes, fracking does produce wastewaters, but most of the wastewater is not caused by hydraulic flowback water.
I feel that this article may be helpful to my essay. By this article, fracking is not the cause of increase earthquakes. Earthquakes are a natural phenomenon, and wastewater can cause shaking. If fracking could find a better way to dispose of the wastewater it produces, then there would be no doubt that hydraulic fracking is not the cause of increased earthquakes.

Earthquakes have been on the rise throughout areas of Texas due to the required process to access oil and gas below the earth’s surface. To access these resources, companies have to utillize a process called fracking, which consists of injecting fluid, sand and chemicals at a high pressure into the earth to release oil and gas. Many claim that fracking does not cause earthquakes as it revolves more around the disposal of wastewater created from fracking. Sceintist have set up sensitivie seismic arrays to detect seismic movement; during the fracking process they are able to provide data showing the increase of earthquakes during this timeframe. Financial impact seems to the be the scale that tips the hand toward fracking not causing earthquakes. If one benefits from the process to obtain the oil and gas, they are typcically going to take the stand and let you know that as long as the Railroad Commission is good with it then so are they.
This article was published on November 11, 2019 in The Dallas Morning News by Anna Kuchment. Not only does Anna Kuchment cover science for The Dallas Morning New and Scientific American, she holds a Master of Science degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. Not only was the artical written by an educated individual but it also discuss locations in the State of Texas where fracking is occuring. It references both positive and negative situations that have taken place in communities along the West Texas Permian Basin. It touches on how fracking has impacted communities financially and how members of these communities are willing to turn a blind eye as long as their palms are greased. This article was written with just the perfect balance of positive and negative about fracking. This requires the reader to dig deeper about fracking and whether or not it causes earthquakes.
