Shale gas - GAS THE DEATH

Are the shale gas and hydraulic fracturing involved in the increase of earthquakes in Arkansas and the sudden death of millions of fish and birds?

Capture of oil and gas: Fracture in the life of Arkansas and beyond hydraulic fracturing, toxic chemicals and increased by Rady Ananda telluric activity

Over the last four months of 2010, nearly 500 earthquakes have shaken Guy in Arkansas. [1] In 2009, 38 earthquakes have occurred throughout the state. [2] The highlight of the frequency of earthquakes was reached on December 30, before and during the death of 100,000 fish, a distance of 20 miles along the Arkansas River, including Roseville Township. The following night, 5,000 red-winged blackbirds and starlings are dead and suddenly fell from the sky in Beebe. [3] The most likely culprit of these three events is hydraulic fracturing, since it causes
earthquakes causing the release of toxins into the environment. [4]

A review of the history of earthquakes and drilling reveals a shocking Arkansas increased frequency of earthquakes after an advanced drilling. The number of earthquakes in 2010 is almost equal to that recorded for the entire 20th century. The oil and gas industry denies any correlation, but the advent of hydrofraction followed by earthquakes is a story repeated across the country and will not stop anytime soon either. Fracturing has taken a global scale.

Thousands of wells are in operation in the north-central Arkansas (the blue section in the map below). [10] Beebe, where the birds are dead, is in White County and Guy is at the extreme north of Faulkner Co., where anomalous earthquakes always occur.

An earthquake, no matter what level, can release a stream or a cloud of gas and chemicals from the fracturing. This can easily explain why sleeping birds suddenly fly away and then die quickly succumbing to toxic fumes. Note that eight earthquakes measured within 40 miles of Beebe, and within 75 miles of Roseville hit the region on December 30 and for several minutes after midnight on 1 January. [12] This excludes any microséisme or mini earthquake that could have the same result. Very considerable, this area is known for its prolific microseisms: one counts 40,000 since 1982 [1].

The Century Canadian geologist Jack is on a crusade against the seismicity induced by irresponsible drilling. In a 2009 speech to the Peace River Environmental Society, he briefly explained how the fracturing produces earthquakes, thus completely refuting industry denial about it. Fracturing causes not only of micro seismic unrest could compromise the integrity of well casings, but also strong earthquakes from 5 to 7 on the Richter scale and causing death. [13]
