Fracking Halt, Earthquakes Derail Dutch Gas Production
The actions of Dutch officials are different than in the U.S., where many people acknowledge the same problem while others deny any problem exists. States that tend to cite the danger are those that have experienced damaging earthquakes, including Arkansas, Oklahoma, Ohio and Virginia. Deniers include big-fracking states such as California, Colorado and Texas.
In states that have reduced new injections and scaled back current operations, earthquakes have abated.
