> A group of Edmond residents filed a lawsuit Monday against a dozen energy companies, claiming their saltwater disposal wells were in part to blame for earthquakes that hit central Oklahoma in recent weeks.

The energy companies have successfully spun this into a "liberal vs conservative" issue. Nothing will happen unless a bunch of poor people can prove to a bought and paid for shill court that hydrofracking causes earthquakes. They will be called hippie libtards and sent home.
