3. All those crooked preachers will make sure it stays that way, too

I don't think I ever saw an earthquake there until they started large scale fracking.

4. They'll just find another way of disposing of waste water.

The fracking itself produces smaller seismic events. <= 2.0.

After the Northridge quake in LA I my ears pricked up when a truck went by my apt. complex. Still have a twinge of concern when a train goes by a few hundred yards from where I work and the floor quivers.

Didn't notice the much smaller 2.0s in LA. And Houston doesn't really have quakes.
