Come on now! Do you wish to report here that no one thought about this added pressure, introduced to rock substrate to break it open, would not have and adverse effect on the surrounding rock substrate? Where did people think the pressure build up would go? Magically disappear into thin air?

Fracking was known to create earthquakes but who cared, its all in the greater good of making profits and the silly public believing the marketing hype. What a silly bunch people are.

I think this is a great way to reduce earthquake magnitude.

Use this injection technology on dangerous fault lines to help cause them to slip slower and under less pressure as naturally created.

I believe this technology can save lots of lives as well as the cost of infrastructure. the person that starts this type of company can make a lot of money.
