#6213: That is the most patently ridiculous thing I've read today.

Granted, I've been up for only about fifteen minutes, but damn:

"Did Fracking Cause The Hawaii Volcano Eruption?"

The short answer: NO.

The medium answer: HELL NO.

The slightly longer medium answer: HELL NO, YOU IDIOTS.

The long answer:

Understand that even in places where vulcanism is common, Earth's crust is miles thick. The process that they use to extract heat from a geothermally active area (or anywhere) is only superficially similar to fracking. know, I have errands to run and no time to deal with this nonsense right now. But trust me, fracking did not cause this eruption. Holy crap are people ignorant.
