New Bacteria Genus — “Frackibacter” Identified in Shale Fracking Wells

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Besides homeowners’ well water capable of burning as a result of fracking, as seen in this short video, something previously unknown to science has been discovered: a formerly unknown genus of bacteria that Ohio State University researchers have labeled “Candidatus Frackibacter.”

This article explains in detail what’s going on that may contribute unwanted side effects from hydraulic fracturing sites in addition to what some geophysicists think can be the cause of “man-made earthquakes” occurring in proximity to fracking areas.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, there’s such a thing as “induced” earthquakes probably attributed to fracking wastewater.  Some seven million U.S. citizens live in areas vulnerable to induced tremors. [1]

Here’s a map produced by the U.S. Geological Survey showing 21 areas impacted as well as the location of wells that may or may not be associated with earthquakes.

Coincidentally, there’s the New Madrid fault line (region of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi) that seems to becoming more active with earthquakes.  If fracking activities are implicated, can we expect the Midwest to become another quake zone like the West Coast?

  1. That’s all very “unexpected”. No one could have seen this. youtube. com/user/dutchsinse
    One goal of fracking is surely to make it impossible to live in rural areas in Agenda 21 resp. 2030 times. Everything has to be destroyed. Water will become the new gold.

    • You nailed it Akzent. A good book on the deep capture of fresh water sources is Blue Gold: The Fight to Stop the Corporate Theft of the World’s Water (2005).

      • Good that you said this. I have to relative my first comment. It’s
        correct, they destroy deliberately all clean water resources, but at the
        same time they conceal something real big, something Gaddafi had
        probably discovered while deep drilling for oil.
        Google: “stop the crime deep primary water”.

        • Thanks!! I’ll check it out. BTW, I know about Gaddafi’s big water project, some said it was going to be the “8th Wonder of the World” – massive, life changing, thus I’ll be eager to go down this rabbit hole.

    • i think your on target ..

  2. Wiskey’s for drinkin, water’s for fightin, bacteria’s for death.
