What's the difference?

In Texas and Ohio?

In Texas they have dozens of earthquakes in a short span.  People become concerned and call for help.  They ban together and travel to the state capital.  Texas tells them, we'll look at it.

In Ohio they have earthquakes and they shut down drilling until they figure it out.

WHAT is the difference?  Is it companies or politicians?

The epicenter of these quakes was located in close proximity to several shale gas wells being drilled by Hilcorp Energy, an oil and gas producer based in Houston, TX-based in the Carbon Limestone Landfill in Poland, Ohio.

Hilcorp Energy, which is drilling seven wells at the site, immediately suspended all activity at its wells on Monday.
