Oklahoma scientists pressured to downplay link between earthquakes and fracking

Oklahoma scientists pressuredOklahoma has been experiencing an earthquake boom in recent years. In 2014, the state had 585 quakes of at least magnitude 3. Up through 2008, it averaged only three quakes of that strength each year. Something odd is happening.
