Fracking Earthquakes Dead Birds

Global Research has a thought provoking article on the subject of Fracking and recent earthquakes in normally seismically dormant Arkansas:

"The last four months of 2010, nearly 500 earthquakes rattled Guy, Arkansas. [1] The entire state experienced 38 quakes in 2009. [2] The spike in quake frequency precedes and coincides with the 100,000 dead fish on a 20-mile stretch of the Arkansas River that included Roseville Township on December 30. The next night, 5,000 red-winged blackbirds and starlings dropped dead out of the sky in Beebe. [3] Hydraulic fracturing is the most likely culprit for all three events, as it causes earthquakes with a resultant release of toxins into the environment. [4]

A close look at Arkansas’ history of earthquakes and drilling reveals a shocking surge in quake frequency following advanced drilling. The number of quakes in 2010 nearly equals all of Arkansas’ quakes for the entire 20th century. The oil and gas industry denies any correlation, but the advent of hydrofracking followed by earthquakes is a story repeated across the nation. It isn’t going to stop any time soon, either. Fracking has gone global."

I read that they ruled out drillng but that injection well sites could be the culpret of the quakes. Indirectly, methane loss or the BP methane loss that turns into formaldehyde in the air falls back to the earth and could be what killed the masses. See this kink

However, Mark Jocobson of Stanford University said.. " With regard to the bird deaths, I haven't looked into it that carefully, but I doubt it is due to methane oxidation to they methoxy radical and then to formaldehyde, as that requires far too much time (8-12 years per methane molecule), and the formaldehyde becomes dilute and reacts away to other species. Formaldehyde is a carcinogen that acts over a long period so wouldn't cause many birds to die in one sudden event unless the concentration was enormous. At high altitudes, where the birds are flying, the concentration could not build up so large; it could build up at the surface from some kind of formaldehyde leak, but in that case, the birds would likely die at the surface rather than fall from the air.


In defense of his theory, said.. "Hello Kim,

The gentleman, as he said, has not looked into this carefully so he has no base to give any opinion. Science has proven this can happen, it however hasn't proven it cannot happen.

Concentrations to kill animals need to be very small, as I document in my article.

The birds did not fall from the sky as he points out. That is a main stream media artificially created concept, not science. I spoke to two people who examined the birds and other animals and not only do they agree they "didn't fall from the sky", but also that, as my article points out, they present damage that coincides with formaldehyde poisoning.

This person you sent the article to, who does not believe the animals died due to formaldehyde poisoning does not know any background information or studies which I read in order to give an opinion. He needs to read the dozen or so studies that support my theory, interview the people I interviewed and read the history of how formaldehyde poisoning has killed bats, frogs, birds and other animals around the world.

Birds did not get poisoned at high altitudes. No scientist who investigated the deaths has said that. In fact, no one saw the birds falling from the sky. That is a myth created by the media.

Concentrations have been high for a while. He needs to read my entire article in order to see the information that backs my article. The concentration in the atmosphere increased by the hundreds of times in a few years. Concentrations change at night and during the day, due to the fact the gas moves vertically and horizontally and it is entirely possible that concentrations at different places were enough to cause the death of thousands of animals.

This gentleman needs to examine the levels of formaldehyde that came out of the BP tragedy in the Gulf, where the emission were carried to, etc. People in the Gulf Coast had symptoms that coincided with gas poisoning, some of them had internal burns due to the exposure to toxic gases and Corexit.

There is a potential leak coming out of a Virginia fault which no one has cared to study. Maybe he can study that as a start.

My article more than documents how formaldehyde accumulates in ice, snow and water.

I will be happy to concede if I am wrong, I just can't concede to a person who speculates without even having read the article properly, much less to read and research as much as I have.

Anyways, thank you for your interest and be sure to continue sending e-mails.
