U.S. Government Confirms Link Between Earthquakes and Hydraulic Fracturing
On 5 November an earthquake measuring 5.6 rattled Oklahoma and was felt as far away as Illinois.

Until two years ago Oklahoma typically had about 50 earthquakes a year, but in 2010, 1,047 quakes shook the state.

Why?

In Lincoln County, where most of this past weekend's seismic incidents were centered, there are 181 injection wells, according to Matt Skinner, an official from the Oklahoma Corporation Commission, the agency which oversees oil and gas production in the state.

Cause and effect?

The practice of injecting water into deep rock formations causes earthquakes, both the U.S. Army and the U.S. Geological Survey have concluded.

and it took their scientists a fucking decade to figure this out when people with common sense have been telling them for years. now its time to sue the hell out of all the oil companies for my damaged house and property. Who owns that fracking site?

I posted that for you, since you obviously don't understand that injection wells are used to inject liquids in to the ground to create pressure, weather purposely trying to frak or not this causes fracturing and erosion of the sediment layers, So they are fracturing the ground with injection wells.
