When water is being used for hydraulic fracking can it cause an earthquake?
I have heard that man-made earthquakes are created more often by waste water injection
What is the difference between the water used in fracking and waste water?
If fracking could induce earthquakes, I wonder if fracking could be used to induce earthquakes, before we have a major earthquake? For example, instead of waiting for a fault line to slip and create a spontaneous magnitude 7.5 quake that wipes out a city, we use fracking to be pro-active; use it to induce a quake when the potential on the fault line is 4.0. This could save nearby cities from a ticking time bomb catastrophe.
