VP Joe Biden: Fracking can cause earthquakes

Oh yes, he really said it:

You can environmentally do that well or you can environmentally do it poorly. If you do it poorly you use up the water aquifer, you create in some cases, the argument is, earthquakes, a whole lot of things.

    The stupidity of the Obama Administration just never ceases to amaze me…

    • GiantM

      don’t forget the world. Their all in a tizzy at the moment.

    • aZjimbo

      Just another dumb day for the regime.

  • las1

    If Guam can tip over and slide into the sea…

    Hank Johnson and Joe Biden… separated at birth. But I must admit Hank has nicer plugs.

    • NYGino

      Sounds like a form of racism to me.

  • StNikao

    Bet fracking causes Tsunamis, Mad Cow disease and global warming as well.

    • NoToTyrants

      It can also limit access to birth control, at least that is Sandra Fluke says so, and that’s good enough for me.

      • NYGino

        From the amount of money she claims to need for birth control she probably fracks 10 to 15 times a day. I’d like to know what her diet consists of.

  • xam3991

    Actually I have heard that it can cause earthquakes.

  • GreenBeretWay

    What in the world did this fracker just say?

  • And yet Palin would have been a terrible VP, right? what a marooon.

  • The gift that just keeps on giving.

  • MiketheMarine

    I am ashamed to call myself an American any time one of these clowns opens their freaking sucks.

    • las1

      Mike… we’ve got them up here as well… except they are not in power… thank God. But I really must admit… when you Americans do something … you do it big. Our leftist/liberal clowns are nowhere near as scary as yours.

      • MiketheMarine

        We, Americans do everything bigger, better, and bader. When we blow stuff up, it stays blowed up. Wehn we screw the pooch, that pooch stays screwed.

        • GiantM

          Yes sir!

          man I love Marines that make sense….lol. In fact they all do.

      • GiantM

        Well neighbor, get down here. The more sensible people we have the better off our country will be, cause right now this country is being run by numbskulls!!!

    • kong1967

      Just think how other world leaders view them. They have to be laughing so hard it makes them cry.

  • Nukeman60

    This man knows nothing of fracking. In other words, he’s a fracking idiot. What can I say?

    • MaxineCA

      You beat me to it! About the only thing he left out was to tell if them is that fracking causes the water in your home to ignite! What an idiot indeed. Unfortunately the useful idiots will believe him.

    Did I tell you all that I met Paul Bunyon the other day? I met Alice when she invited me to Wonderland, too. I should also tell you that our CO2 emmissions are causing Pluto to erode. While I’m at it, don’t forget that the sun is doubling in size every three days because our oil companies are drilling out our anti-sun protection.

    I’m so sick of these bastards making up whatever lie benefits their cause.

    • NYGino

      kong1967, anybody knows that Pluto is eroding from shame since it was officially downgraded from planet status years ago.

      • kong1967

        But before our industrialization, Pluto was the size of Jupiter. Bush caused it to become a tiny rock, lol.

  • DebbyX

    Biden should ALWAYS be in an enclosed area.

  • DavidRobertson

    If only fracking could rid us of this administration

    • stevenbiot

      Aint that the fracking truth. Come November, those frackers are gone.

      • Constance

        🙂 That made me laugh out loud.

  • stevenbiot

    Somebody needs to frack him in the nuts.

  • Meh…it’s usually more of a small tremor…OH! Fracking…nevermind

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Friend, The 3 links you post are about the same story. If you read them you would see that the geologist experts you state are not positive that the fracking causes the earthquakes.

      A quote from the first article: “Although LDEO scientists are not saying that the pumping caused the quakes”

      A quote from the third article: “Geologists believe it is very difficult for all conditions to be met to induce seismic events,” the report states. “In fact, all the evidence indicates that properly located … injection wells will not cause earthquakes.”

      So, actually, what Biden is saying is wrong.

      • Did you listen to what Biden said?

        Because he said that when done properly it won’t cause earthquakes.

        A quote from the first article:

        Scientists have quickly determined that the likely cause was fracking—although not from drilling into deep shale or cracking it with pressured water and chemicals to retrieve natural gas. Rather, they suspect the disposal of wastewater from those operations, done by pumping it back down into equally deep sandstone.

        So it appears that you’re being deliberately manipulative of the articles and that you didn’t listen to the audio.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          Okay I confess I’m a naughty manipulator.

  • MaxineCA

    Well, we must admit Biden has been very effective on policy – being a life insurance policy for Bamster that keeps renewing every time he opens his mouth!

  • PChandler

    Fracking can cause Guam to capsize and sink!.

    • GiantM

      I heard a Congressman say the very same thing once. They must be onto something.


    …just IMAGINE America this DOLT is one heart beat away from being your PRESIDENT !”

    • Constance

      True, but I’m thinking we could just dangle something shiny in front of him and lead him away from anything in the White House he could get into. Can’t do that with Obama.

  • GiantM

    I tried some Fracking in pancakes once and it wasn’t very good. So threw them outside for the birds and the whole house shook!

    Go figure!

    Joe must be right. No wait a minute…he’s Left. Right? I don’t know, perhaps I should ask Joe just what he is?

    Omg, I think I just got Joe Biden’d!!! aaaaaah!

  • Constance

    There comes a point when it’s time to fold up the lawn chair and just go home permanently, Uncle Joe. Greener pastures await. Medication and copious amounts of alcohol can be administered. Time to sit in a garden somewhere and watch the birdies and play checkers with the security personnel who will keep an eye on you and make sure you can’t do further damage to others or yourself. Good old Joe. The plugs went a little too deep into his skull.

  • Technically, it depends on what you call an “earthquake”. Fracking creates tons of microseismic events, ones that can be recorded by equipment but that cause no harm that people usually associate with “earthquakes”. It is possible that a large microseismic event occurs as a result of fracking. Of course, he insinuates that we’ll have another Japanese tsunami as a result.

  • TLaMana

    Whatta Maroon!

    Idiots on parade.

  • hbnolikeee

    They both lie whenever the speak. It’s just that joe isn’t as slick when he’s slinging it.

  • 12grace

    It it wasn’t so pathetic, it would actually be funny.

    Where’s your proof, biden?

  • shagstar

    joe bite-me needs to just shut the frac up!

  • aZjimbo

    This guy gets dumber by the day. We are a sad country when an idiot like this can be elected to the VP position.

    • WestGAFlash

      Don’t forget: in his own words, he’s second in line to the Presidency.

      • aZjimbo

        dumb, dumber and dumbest: biden, carney and barry.
