So recently it's big news that Ohio geologists have linked fracking to earthquakes that occurred there.
While earlier studies had linked earthquakes in the same region to deep-injection wells used for disposal of fracking wastewater, this marks the first time tremors have been tied directly to fracking
Excuse me? Earthquakes had been linked to fracking, but this is now the first time (in Ohio) that earthquakes were...umm...linked to fracking.
It is indeed possible to deny that fracking causes earthquakes, and idiots and morons who do so are entitled to their own stupid opinions.
But there's little question that fracking causes earthquakes. News articles that say that fracking causes earthquakes aren't news.
