    Let me preface this by saying I am not a geologist. Still……
    First, I have read that “fracking” for natural gas has caused some very minor earthquakes. Next, from the History Channel, I have learned that Yellowstone is the site of one of the world’s few Super Volcanos, one that every 300,000 years or so erupts so tremendously that it would have killed most of the US population and decimate the earth — and that there have been troubling geological developments, like a lake at Yellowstone shifting from the rising of the magma. In brief — don’t purusue fracking anywhere close to Yellowstone, and I don’t just mean within the park’s limits.
