October 16 - October 22, 2016

Oklahoma had its largest earthquake ever, at a magnitude of 5.8, last month, and the state ordered more wastewater injection wells to be shut down. How should the state and neighboring Texas proceed in light of the increase in quakes over recent years?

Don't allow new injection wells in the area, keep an eye on seismic activity and continue to study the possible effects of drilling and injection wells.
Shut down any and all injection wells on the Arbuckle formation, where the quakes seem to be centered.
Keep looking for other causes; drilling has occurred for decades in Oklahoma, and the quakes only started recently.
