Critical List: Fracking ‘almost certainly’ caused earthquakes; wolves save trees

The disposal of fracking wastewater "almost certainly " was the cause of all those earthquakes near Youngstown, Ohio. Oil is washing up on the shores of Nigeria; Shell denies it's from the massive oil spill that occurred last month. BP wants Halliburton to cover the $20 billion it paid to clean up and otherwise deal with the Deepwater Horizon spill. Wolves save trees . (Related: Deer are sort of like giant squirrels.) We love a good mass die-off mystery story. It just came out that those dead blackbirds last year in Beebe, AR, were likely killed by fireworks . Now we can start wondering what led 20 tons of dead herring to end up on a beach in Norway. In other end-of-times news, climate change is pushing sharks to hybridize . (Or, as the Telegraph puts it "KILLER MUTANT SHARKS!!!") Countdown to reality becoming Waterworld or Jaws or both.
