This report comes from the USA, Oklahoma state where fracking and waste water disposal regulations are particularly friendly to the Big Oil & Gas. Closer to home, we have now AGL Energy blithely going to drill CSG exploration core hole close to a major fault line near Milbrodale in the Hunter. Of course, they say that this is perfectly safe, this is not like lubricating fault lines by fracking waste water. Nevertheless, it is a start of the same industry. After all, Newcastle earthquake happened long time ago so who cares. You may also like to have a look at the picture in the report attached, to see how a "serious" hydraulic fracturing technology looks like...

This is a new report of an earthquake in the USA from 2011. The importance of this report is that it links directly back to "re-injection of wastewater" as the most likely cause.

That strategy is endorsed by the Australian CSG and Shale Oil companies, despite the various reports from the USA of similar earthquakes in the USA.

Why is it that Governments accept the industry claims that their techniques are safe until such time as it is proven to be unsafe and dangerous?
Surely this is a reversal of the onus of proof?
