ICELAND SLOWLY BEING TORN APART BY CONSTANT EARTHQUAKES

Editorial Comment

Iceland gets a lot of its energy from geothermal sources which, I believe, involves drilling into the earth’s crust. What I find interesting is that when earthquakes occur around fracking sites, the fracking is blamed. But when earthquakes occur around geothermal energy extraction, that’s not even mentioned as a possible contributing factor. - BK
