Have you heard of the massive sinkholes popping up around the nation? Flammable craters spanning acres wide and leaking radiation, monster sinkholes described as ‘apocalyptic’ have forced residents out of homes, expelled radiation into the environment, and are now ushering in concerns about serious Earth changes in the near future. If you’ve heard of these sinkholes, chances are it has been from the alternative media.

A more serious issue, even beyond the dangers posed by these radiation-leaking sinkholes, is how man-made processes like fracking and excessive drilling are changing the planet on a larger scale. Bloomberg reports that fracking is a likely cause for a dramatic rise (sixfold) in earthquake activity from 2000 to 2011. Not to mention contamination of the water and food supply.

That is a far from indepth piece.  Where is the evidence of radiation being common to sink holes?  You would think that would definitely make the news as the reporters themselves and government officials visits these holes and would be at risk if such things were undisclosed.

As to the fracking causing sink holes - a map would be nice, is there an "epidemic" of sink holes in regions where fracking is going on?  It's easy enough to say so, but zero evidence beyond just "saying so" was presented.

I quite agree is is far from in-depth, and I have to admit the source is dubious imo..
But puting that aside, I feel that it is a very important question that people need to be asking..

Will see if I can find some more Maps or other sources..

Here's one from 2009..

The massive sinkhole currently running through the center of town was created by the oil industry. It was formed over three decades as oil field service companies pumped fresh water into a salt layer more than 400 feet below the surface and extracted several million barrels of brine to help with drilling.

There are also areas of land sinking because of aquifers getting low.  I believe there is a big one in California.

I don't live far from the New Madrid fault line and I hope I never have to witness a earthquake like happened in 1811 and 1812.  Many people will die if that happens again.  I have also read in the past fracking does cause earthquakes and pollutes underground water supplies.

Have a look at Gasland, there you see what the frack its all about. Insane amounts of money and zero responsibility, and consideration, for the environment....,and people in general, for that matter.>>>

Man and his mining the earth have been at play for centuries, and the recent addition of fracking must certainly play a role.

As various aquifers are depleted, and we rearrange the underground structures, there must certainly be results.  Sinkholes have been fairly common here in Florida during my life time, but it does seem that the phenomenon is increasing.

The MSM is notorious for what it DOES NOT report.  Its role in any and all coverups cannot be denied.

Agree or disagree with fracking, but don't post anything from Gasland, support your beliefs with real science.  And whatever you do, please don't show the flaming water - debunked a million times over.

So what is the science? The corporation propaganda? This guy at least took the time to talk to the people living with the consequences of fracking. Many of the know that the gas in the water turned up after the fracking begun, so yeah, I can see them making the connection and see the correlation.
So yeah, I'm posting something from Gasland, and you can take it or leave it.

Ouch, sucks to be living in Florida..
I think these aren't a fracking related thing..
But still, One has to ask, whats going on for so many to appear in only 50 years.

Oooooooo, this is an interesting find..
http://www.targetmap...?reportId=15575

This Map show's Sinkhole QTY by Country..
Not much other data availible such as source, but the numbers are an interesting read..

I'm not an alarmist, nor scientist, But if you look at the pretty red Country and consider that's probably where most of the worlds fracking happens, then consider these sinkhole numbers.... dunno, there might be a connection me thinks..

Or.. If you consider that the Country "Shaded red" basically ran out of oil in the 1970's by sucking billions and billions of barrels of oil from the ground.. dunno..

The Fact remains.. Why isn't this being highlighted.. Is it being Ignored..

I'm not a scientist either, but the sinkholes have been happening for a long time.  There is no fracking in Florida that I am aware of, I suppose because the geological formations are not the right ones for fracking.

But we have been steadily drawing from the Floridan (I think) aquifer for many decades, and IMO that depletion of water contributes to the sinkholes.
