Senator Inhofe probably won't believe this either. After all, scientists
figured it out.
Will this get wide play in Oklahoma media?

A large earthquake, which rocked Oklahoma in 2011 and was felt across 17
states, was caused by oil-drilling, scientists said today.
The 5.6 magnitude quake injured two people, buckled a highway, destroyed 14
properties and was felt for hundreds of miles.
A team of scientists today ruled it was caused by deep injections of
waste-water in the drilling of oil - counteracting the view of state
seismologists who said it occurred naturally.
If they are right, it is the largest man-made earthquake recorded in the
U.S. and will leave many question marks over the practice of disposing of
waste-water from oil production underground.
