Fracking scared. . .


. . . unfortunately, not a  Battlestar Galactica reference.

A year or two ago, I stumbled across an article that addressed the future “fracking” of land outside one of the towns that features heavily in my childhood memories. This worried me, for many reasons. I read the article and tried to reassure myself that everything would be O.K. That humanity would not cause, by accident, a natural disaster the likes of which my home region is not prepared for.

Today, I saw an article that resurrected those fears and makes me worried that humanity is taking yet another inadvisable step:

I hope someone in the chain of command of the company(ies) involved in fracking whilst extracting natural gas in Central Oregon reads this. I’d love to be able to take my family to the High Desert Museum next summer.

I can’t do that if it’s destroyed by an earthquake, whether human-induced or not.

At this point, any such tremors in that area are likely to prove to be caused by this practice.

    I didn’t realize that they did fracking anywhere in Oregon, let alone Central. Where is this being done?
