Fracking hell!

So ... Caudrilla believe that earthquakes that happen shortly after they stop fracking for the day don't count as evidence that what they are doing just might be dangerous?

Does mag 0.8 count as an earthquake? Not even sure that would be a micro tremor.

It's above the level caudrilla said wouldn't happen.

Not sure it’s above what they said would happen but what they have been told under the traffic light system. It’s a very low level. If you think coal mining used to generate magnitude 3 regularly .

The cows walking in the field next to the site would prob generate that magnitude of mini micro teenyweeny tremor. Remember that the Richter Scale is a log10 scale so every 1 it goes up the quake power is x 10. So 0.8 to 3 is over 100 times the power increase. The Mecalli scale was so much better but it never caught on. Whistle

You would not know unless you had equipment to measure.

I've seen people walking down our local high street that generate more Shocked

I’d love to know what magnitude my house experiences every time a 44 ton artic lorry passes! Rattles the glasses in my drinks cabinet!

There’s another thread here somewhere, in which people moan about the cost of heating their homes!

Rock and a hardplace in my opinion!

in fracking, the micro tremors are not the problem to worry about ... there are other aspects much worse!

Hence why fracking in Scotland has not been banned, but an indefinite moratorium is in place Thumbs Up

They’ve stopped at the moment, Fracking that is, not the tremors.
