Oklahoma City, OK - Public Justice and Sierra Club filed a ‘Notice of Intent to Sue’ Friday with four energy companies engaged in hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, in the state of Oklahoma. The groups have notified Sandridge Exploration and Production, New Dominion, Chesapeake Operating and Devon Energy Production Company of new evidence linking production waste from fracking and oil production with increased and ongoing earthquake activity in and around central Oklahoma.
Here in California, a measly few of us have been asking Gov. Brown to cease fracking, for the barely significant reason that the state contains some of the world's largest seismic faults.
But the fracking continues nonetheless.
It's an exceptional country all right.
