The Earth and all life functions as a fluid dynamic system that we barely begin to understand in it’s complexly interwoven entirety. Suck out the oil and burn it off in a fashion marginally more evolved than the discovery of fire itself – ie. the archaic combustion engine proliferating to this day by the obtuse laws of corporate swaggery, is still just burning shit based on nature’s de-structuring forces (as opposed to con-structuring spiralic forces) for nearsighted profit.

But at what actual cost?
Apart from the fact that removing the oil from the Earth’s crust just wouldn’t seem like a sensible thing to do looking at the big picture. In any large body / system of nature, there is no redundancy. When a part is removed, the integrity of the whole is compromised by definition. See comments at page end *** for examples of how, but the net effects are yet to become truly apparent. And yet the effect of burning the stuff off is apparent enough to all except a number of staunch advocates of the false status quo – the rapacious, elitist, mind-fuckers and liars of vested government and corporation and the insular brainwashed few…

As Churchill pointed out “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened.” Yet as tsunamis, hurricanes and earthquakes become more prevalent and devastating in this generation – it is high time to step aside from irresponsible or at best misguided “government” insentive and join with the global multitude of truly solutions oriented non-governmental organisations. The oil Goliaths will be nothing if you and I pull the plug – it’s really not that difficult. Actually, as Gerald Massey says, “they must find it difficult …. those who have taken authority as the truth, rather than truth as the authority.”

USGS says the cause of the few earthquakes [knowingly] triggered by humans was injection of fluids into deep wells for waste disposal and secondary recovery of oil, and the use of reservoirs for water supplies.

haqiqu says on Water and Oil Displacement and Earthquakes

Net extraction of oil and water reduces slightly the average density of the upper crust, causing an isostatic imbalance. The ductile lower crust deforms in response to this imbalance, thus increasing the load on the seismogenic layer, which fails seismically to thicken the crust so as to restore static equilibrium locally. Accordingly, earthquakes near the base of the upper crust may be an expected outcome of major oil production from growing anticlines, irrespective of the depths of the producing formations.

In plan English: When thrusting or extracting oil or water, it causes an imbalance in the Earth’s crust or mantle. A natural consequence is for the Earth to find its equilibrium (balance) causing a shift in plates or crustal displacement. This is best known to you and me as an “earthquake”.
New research has established a new technique for extracting oil. Studies show that by shaking the ground it causes what is referred to as “permeability”. ‘Permeability’ is defined as: “the capability of a porous rock or sediment to permit the flow of fluids through its pore spaces.”…

rrrandy says one of the techniques used by the oil industry to find hidden reserves of oil is to use high-energy vibrations and powerful concussive blasts. By setting up an array of microphones and using these to feed a huge computational source, the hidden geological formations can be deduced. ?It?s not unreasonable to imagine energetic exploratory techniques and the triggering of earthquakes in mapping efforts like these happening far out at sea, dislodging some underwater shelf (which may in turn have been storing enough tension to cause a significant earthquake), which displaces a few million tons of water, which in turn creates a devastating tsunami.
