Oklahoma world’s number 1 for Earthquakes and windmills

Guys, Drudge carried a news piece today from our friends at EnidNews.com, proclaiming Oklahoma world’s No. 1 earthquake area.

The article says that Oklahoma is unique in terms of earthquakes in the world. Then they say that the world is going through an earthquake phase. Next they quote someone who says Oklahoma is unique in terms of earthquakes in North America. Finally they say, “In North America, Oklahoma is very unique and unique in the world.”

I’m serious. Here’s the quote if you don’t believe me.

Oklahoma is now the No. 1 earthquake area in the world, an Oklahoma Corporation Commission spokesman said Monday.
Spokesman Matt Skinner said the state is unique in terms of frequency.
“We have had 15 (earthquakes) in Medford since 5 o’clock Saturday morning,” he noted. “We’ve got an earthquake issue.”
Skinner said the world is going through a seismic phase.
“Oklahoma is absolutely unique in terms of the number of earthquakes we’ve had,” he said.
Jim Palmer, OCC director of public information and manager of consumer education, said Oklahoma is unique in North America. He said there are other parts of the world experiencing enormous numbers of earthquakes.
“In North America, Oklahoma is very unique and unique in the world, in the sense that it’s concentrated so much in just one area,” Palmer said.

Does this make sense? No! Neither does blaming fracking for oil and gas for these earthquakes. Why? Because for all the ways Oklahoma is unique, fracking is not one of them.

In other words, Oklahoma is the number one state for earthquakes, but it is not the number one state for fracking.

But they are unique for windmills. And I think that’s the culprit.

To read more about this theory, check out my post, Does Fracking Cause Earthquakes? No. Windmills Do.

Is what I say true?

Guys, that doesn’t even matter. We need to stop all windmills and explore the issue for 7 years. Following that time, I will predictably ban all windmill construction.
