New Video: Energy Technologies & Manmade Earthquakes

Some energy production activities can produce small manmade earthquakes. A new video from the National Academies explains the conditions that have produced such earthquakes during activities related to conventional oil and gas, hydraulic fracturing, geothermal energy, and the injection of wastewater for underground disposal. The video also explores the potential for earthquakes to develop from use of new energy technologies such as carbon capture and storage.
