There is to much assumption to this phenomenon and not enough science. Disposal wells have been in operation for years without any talk of the seismic issue. Gas storage wells have been in operation around the country where gas is injected and withdrawn under pressure yearly with no direct notice of seismic activity. Should it be studied? yes, but seismic activity, like climate, is measured/studied in centuries, not over the past year and decisions should not be made because of pressure from the news media.

So both the U.S Army and the U.S. Geological Survey over fifty years of research confirm on a federal level that that “fluid injection” introduces subterranean instability and is a contributory factor in inducing increased seismic activity.”
