Fracking and Earthquakes

Description 

While fracking generally doesn't cause earthquakes, the deep injection disposal wells used to eliminate the water waste created by fracking, often do.  David Baker and Abrahm Lustgarten discuss the few geological studies being done to study induced seismic activity, and our need for more information to be gathered.
