One can only look on in anguish as the US Government continues to betray the public trust for lack of intelligence and integrity.
The headlines about earthquakes being related to oil and gas drilling have been common for some time now. Despite the fact that the federal government has noticed the connection at very low bureaucratic levels, the fact is that the politicized government persists in ignoring the precautionary principle and continues to betray the public trust by not stopping all activities associated with increasing earthquakes.
Earthquakes are now coming to the East Coast just as they are about to become much more frequent, intense, and consequential on the East Coast.
One can only pray that at some point the public will demand an honest government capable of making informed decisions with integrity.
