Fracking linked to earthquakes in Oklahoma

Fracking has been shown to be responsible for the big increase in seismic activity in Oklahoma since 2008.  It’s not the fracking itself that is to blame, but rather the process of injection toxic wastewater back into the ground.  It sounds like so far, it’s not to the point where we’re looking at major structural damage and such, so is really more of an annoyance…but I wonder how the residents in those areas are coping?  You can read the study here or at Salon.
