Even a government agency like the United States Geological Survey (USGS) is now acknowledging that Fracking is the cause of earthquakes.

U.S. Geological Survey Confirms: Human Activity Caused 5.7 Quake in Oklahoma

The USGS claims that the magnitude 5.0 earthquake triggered by waste-water injection the previous day ‘trigger[ed] a cascade of earthquakes, including a larger one, [which] has important implications for reducing the seismic risk from waste-water injection.”
