Did fracking cause the Hawaii volcano eruption?

Did fracking cause the Hawaii volcano eruption?

by Jon Rappoport

May 22, 2018

On the Big Island of Hawaii, where the Kilauea volcano has explosively erupted, there is a geothermal energy plant. It is the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) Plant, in Puna.

There is a long-running debate about whether PGV is fracking. The debate may be a matter of terminology, because in the geothermal process, as hawaiifracking.com reports, “…the drilling and the injection of cold water into hot rocks used in geothermal energy plants does fracture the rocks, which can induce earthquakes and through contamination of the atmosphere and water tables can affect our health and safety.”

Whether deep injection of fluid aims to capture oil, gas, or heat (geothermal), the beginning stage of the process is the same.

Earthquakes induced by this water-injection could obviously trigger a volcano.

For example, here is an alarming article about a geothermal project in Switzerland. Swissinfo.ch, December 10, 2009: “The authorities in canton Basel City say they will cancel a geothermal energy project, which three years ago caused minor tremors that damaged many buildings.”

“A risk analysis study published on Thursday found that the danger of setting off more earthquakes was too great if drilling at the site resumed.”

“The project was put on hold three years ago after thousands of claims for damage were filed with insurers. Total costs for the damage were around SFr9 million ($8.78 million).”

“The study, commissioned by the canton, concluded that Basel was ‘unfavourable’ for geothermal power generation.”

“It said the resumption of Deep Heat Mining project and its operation over a 30-year period could set off around 200 tremors with a strength of up to 4.5 on the Richter Scale – in 2006, the quakes were about 3.4.”

“This would result in damages up to SFr40 million.”

“The Basel facility drilled five kilometres into the earth. The borehole was designed to be injected with water to capture the extreme heat. Back at the surface, the hot water – at a temperature of around 160° Celsius – would run a steam turbine coupled with a generator.”

This Swiss article outlines the risks, and also confirms that deep water-injection is used in the geothermal process—which can and does trigger earthquakes.

Here is another reference—The Guardian, July 11, 2013: “Pumping water underground at geothermal power plants can lead to dangerous earthquakes even in regions not prone to tremors, according to scientists.”

“Prof Emily Brodsky, who led a study of earthquakes at a geothermal power plant in California, said: ‘For scientists to make themselves useful in this field we need to be able to tell operators how many gallons of water they can pump into the ground in a particular location and how many earthquakes that will produce’.”

“It is already known that pumping large quantities of water underground can induce minor earthquakes near to geothermal power generation and fracking sites. However, the new evidence reveals the potential for much larger earthquakes, of magnitude 4 or 5, related to the weakening of pre-existing underground faults through increased fluid pressure.”

“The water injection appears to prime cracks in the rock, making them vulnerable to triggering by tremors from earthquakes thousands of miles away. Nicholas van der Elst, the lead author on one of three studies published on Thursday in the journal Science, said: ‘These [injected] fluids are driving [earthquake] faults to their tipping point’.”

“The analysis of the Californian site showed that for a net injection of 500m gallons of water into the ground per month, there is an earthquake on average every 11 days.”

“Heather Savage, a co-author on the same study said: ‘It is already accepted that when we have very large earthquakes seismic waves travel all over the globe, but even though the waves are small when they reach the other side of the world, they still shake faults [such as the faults induced by geothermal water-injection]. This can trigger seismicity in seismically active areas SUCH AS VOLCANOES where there is already a high fluid pressure.” (emphasis added)

So, on the Big Island of Hawaii, where there is a massive volcanic eruption underway, there is a geothermal plant, PGV. How close to the volcano is PGV?

The Washington Post, May 12: “Long a concern for residents and the target of lawsuits challenging its placement ON AN ACTIVE VOLCANO, the Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) is a major safety issue [i.e., chemicals stored at PGV] in the wake of the eruptions and earthquakes that have shaken the Big Island for days, government officials say.” (emphasis added)

I see. PGV is ON the volcano. Other reports claim PGV is 15 miles from the volcano. In either case, PGV is close, very close.

Who owns PGV? Ormat Technologies. Through internal merger and stock swapping, Ormat appears to be a jointly owned Israeli and US company now.

Ormat is no stranger to scandals. At blog.heartland.org, H Sterling Burnett writes (4/1/15): One scandal that could haunt [Harry] Reid for his remaining time in the Senate (and possibly beyond) was reported on recently in the Washington Free Beacon and Courthouse News. It seems the Reid helped the green energy company, Ormat Technologies, a firm that owns and manages geothermal plants in California and Hawaii, secure nearly $136 million in economic stimulus funding from the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.”

“Two former employees are suing the firm, claiming Ormat executives defrauded the United States of more than $130 million by reporting false information about two projects to get government grants, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.”

“Reid’s ties to Ormat are deep. The company runs geothermal plants in Nevada and Reid has been a big booster of the company in D.C. As reported in the Free Beacon, ‘Reid bragged about securing Ormat a $350 million loan guarantee from the Department of Energy (DOE) and took credit for expanding the Treasury program that the former employees say illicitly provided Ormat with millions more in taxpayer funds’.”

“It is also worth noting that Ormat’s DOE award came a year after investors sued the company for allegedly inflating its stock price through ‘fraudulent accounting and overstated financial results.’ Ormat settled the allegations in 2012 for $3.1 million.”

Ormat potentially faces a much larger scandal now.

  1. Kenneth T. says:

    Maybe, maybe not, Hawaii was created from an active system.
    Humans have been here only a short time, to the earth, it’s only been a blink of an eye.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not ruling out fracking, I’m just keeping an open mind.

    • From Quebec says:

      I think like you Kenneth, maybe, maybe not. Who knows? There has been an eruption of volcanos since the dawn of time.

      I do not know much about ffracking, but if there is oil in the soil, it must be there for something. The only problem is to find a way to get to it in a way that is safe.

      • Joni Carleton says:

        Number 1: The article is not referring to oil here, but geothermal – steam production.
        Number 2: Please do more research on ‘fracking’ as this article gave excellent information regarding the negative effects of geothermal fracking.

  2. DAvid says:

    Apparently the plant is owned by Rothschild. If it triggers the Hilina slump that would be the “black swan” event much rumoured. God’s speed all

    • Together Separately says:

      Whoa. No doubt it’s a twisted thing if their name is involved. I’m sorry, but no doubts about fracking having to do with it. It’s an unwise practice that has made the world suffer greatly for quite some time niw.

  3. Dear Jon,

    knowing the real meaning of fracking as Nuclear-Fracturing makes it very clear why and how any kind of fracking may cause earthquakes, fractures in the crust and volcanic eruption.

    For that I would like to offer You the historic documentation about how fracking began and why it can ONLY be done by nuclear bombs.


    The world is nuclear bombed for fracking of gas and oil everywhere now!

    #Fracking #Colonialism!

    My blog is censored by an insecurity warning, but please ignore it.


    • NaturalWoman says:

      Thank you for this information. I didn’t know about this.

      I suspect that we have oil in the earth for a reason, to lubricate the movement of the plates. Removing it and replacing it with water will not work well, just as using water for lubrication instead of oil in your car is disastrous.

      Once again, humans are charging ahead without caring about the consequences of their actions, nor even being interested in what they might be.

      • Lovebird Kenney says:

        […] The planet formed and the plates started slipping and sliding past each other long before there was even life, and oil is the result of millions of years of plant and animal materials being transformed under heat and high pressure.

        Everytime you put gas in your car you’re basically putting a T-Rex in your tank.

    • Thx1138 says:

      There’s no such thing as a nuclear bomb.

    Fracking on an active volcano? How can anyone be so stupid or was it done on purpose. The Rothschild Family has a hand in this puppet play…

  5. NaturalWoman says:

    Do you notice the similarity between fracking and vaccination? Both are harmful and against nature. Both have “experts” who claim that they are safe. Both cause real-life harm to mother earth and living creatures.

    • NaturalWoman says:

      Meant to say both are “injections” that cause real-life harm to mother earth and living creatures.

  6. Michael Burns says:

    “I see. PGV is ON the volcano. Other reports claim PGV is 15 miles from the volcano. In either case, PGV is close, very close.”

    The whole Island is on the Volcano. The Island was made by volcanic action. The whole island is a volcano on the infamous Pacific ‘ring of fire’. Along with the other islands.

    They are getting careless with their technologies.
    The Fukishima event is an example of what can happen through this carelessness.

    • Mudhead Farmily says:

      Hawaiian here.
      PGV is ON Kilauea volcano, but is 23 miles from Kilauea’s summit caldera (who’s active vent is called Halema’uma’u).

      The whole island is not on THE volcano, it is on SIX VOLCANOES (Mahukona [submerged], Kohala, Mauna Kea, Hualalai, Mauna Loa, Kilauea, in order of age). The island is six distinct amd unique volcanoes, not one. And the Hawaiian islands are absolutely NOT ON the Ring Of Fire. Hawaii is in the center of the Pacific Plate, not at the edge of the plate, so we are 1000’s of miles from RoF.

      Fracking or geothermal production did not cause the eruption, nor the slumping of Hilina Slump. Kilauea has been in constant eruption since 1983, and had several eruptions throughout the 1900s. The very location on which Leilani Estates sits, saw quite-similar eruptions to the current one, in 1960, 1955, 1924… all before PGV was ever thought of. The Hilina Slump has been slumping for millenia. In Nov 1975 Hilina Slump dropped into the ocean ELEVEN FEET in one movement, causing that corresponding 7.5 quake with a minor tsunami…all before PGV.

      I have no love or alliance with PGV or any fracking, but facts are facts, and all these unfounded accusations and assumptions are fxckin inane.

  8. Reblogged this on The Most Revolutionary Act and commented:
    The deep water injection undertaken at Hawaii’s Puna Geothermal Venture has already been shown to induce earthquakes and similar seismic activity.

    • It is not just “water injection”! Before water can be injected into a rock formation, this needs to be fractured by underground nuclear explosions! This is the real reason of the earthquakes!

  9. Gregster says:

    The headline should say “Did fracking cause a volcano to erupt on an island continually built by volcanoes long before man was throwing rocks at the moon from his cave?”

  12. In NZ (1996) we had a massive eruption of Mt. Ruapehu within 24 hours of nuclear test blasting at Moreroa Atoll by the French, haven’t had one like it since. It seemed suspicious to me at the time. That was their last test…..

  13. Henry Horner says:

    I’d be more inclined to think fracking had nothing to do with it — but the massive weight of liberal bullshit piling up everywhere created a gravitational imbalance. Drawing magma from many miles down, up to surface levels.

  14. Freespirit says:

    Did “Weather Warfare” cause the ‘waking” up of the volcano

    Have you heard or SCALAR Directed Energy. What can it do combined with HAARP

    Should we discount the FACT that Hawaii is talking about Independence?

    Is it just a coincidence that when ANY country starts talking about Independence in any form, such as from Washington and/or the
    Rothschild Banking system,STRANGE things including, but not limited to, WARS. Airplane crashes,severe weather or environmental events start happening???

    It all started with Weather manipulation in the Vietnam INVASION, by America

    Watch for Venezuela events to start,AGAIN, very soon.

    • Lovebird Kenney says:


      The volcano did not “wake up”. The volcano has been continuously active since it first formed, millions of years ago. Large eruptions make the news, but the volcano has been “alive” all this time.

      • Freespirit says:

        One, just as a Volcano, can be ASLEEP but still alive, just as one can WAKE up while alive

        YOU truly need to do your homework.

    It just seems completely ridiculous, to think that there would be no problem to frack, to drill into lava fields. We can not trust these crappy scientists to interpret reality for us.

    Now in the UK the local decision-making process is being taken away. So the central government will decide to go ahead whatever local communities think. There’s democracy and transparency for you.

    • “.. the central government will decide to go ahead whatever local communities think..”
      This is one of the main problems with global government. Right now, each unit of government puts its toxic waste dumps and other environmentally destructive activities far away, in a place where the locals, if there are any, have no power. So the US government put its nuclear development on the Yakima Indian reservation, it’s nuclear dumps out in the middle of the Nevada desert.

      The kinds of environmental projects being thought of now are so destructive and so massive, no national government would approve of them. Right now, corporations can bribe national governments in the southern hemisphere to be nuclear dumps, or massive energy projects, but the kind of projects on the drawing boards, no one will take. So they need a global government to force it on the locals, who will have absolutely no voice in the matter, who won’t even know who to appeal to.

  18. Todd Millions says:

    Thank you for the ownership outline.US geothermal projects used to be the exclusive fiefdoms of oil companies-with massive subsidies for little performance compared to say Iceland’s original program. So the “subsidies remain” but…
    I’ll have to check other connections.
    With a nearly direct Magma project such as this one-why would you use injection?
    A capped pipe with a smaller pipe inside with insulation could blast out steam at almost a mile length.
    injection with the mineral load contamination is for hot spring taps.

  19. Keanu says:

    Well this could explain the volcanic activity I felt. I live in Hilo but the earthquake was big enough to shake the neighborhood and pretty much the rest of the island.

    And I had a friend tell me that there was some operations going on that is causing all of those earthquake and volcanic activities. He told me something about an organization that’s boring holes under ground. What they’re doing, I don’t know. Reading this makes me assume he may be right.

  20. joyce Coley says:

    I truly believe the geothermal plant helped cause the volcano eruptions in Hawaii by altering the natural cooling process of volcanic heat rising to the earth’s surface.

  21. I like this article, Jon.

    I note you used the word TRIGGER in place of cause at the right time. You made your case (professionally) by saying “technical” industrial fracking triggered the recent Hawaiian volcano eruption.

    Remember how daddy Bush boasted how the American people would have lynched him out of office if they knew the secrets they were hiding. One on those [poorly kept] “secrets” was Big Oil causes ALL cancers. That’s right. I’ll say that again. BIG OIL CAUSES ALL CANCERS.

    Remove Big Oil, will illness dissipate or disappear altogether?

    Not a chance. That’s because there are numerous triggers….glyphosate, vaccines, energy waves….and on and on. And the body reflects malice served on it, so most cancers would be replaced by “something else”, but there would be no cancers.


    • Lovebird Kenney says:

      No, BIG OIL does not cause cancer. Cancer can be triggered by many things, can be genetic, or, it developes from causes we don’t yet know.

      Cancer has been around since before the Stone Age. Evidence of cancer has been found as far back as prehistoric proto-humans.

      • Incorrect. Facts demonstrate otherwise. In fact the “rise of diagnosable” cancers followed the motor industry. I suggest you refer to statistics instead of gulping bullshit.

        Check on the attack on “industry” of the 1860’s and 70’s and the emergence of the NEW condition “bronchitis”. Also review the effects of (illness generated by) mass coal (another CARBON based fossil fuel) fires over Victorian communities

        “Cancer-like” symptoms I agree have been around since the “stone age” (whatever that is…..!) because the body deals with “issues” efficiently.

        Cancers, specifically, are CAUSED (and NOT triggered) by a breakdown of reproductive DNA. As incompetent science cannot see DNA in “raw form”, fools like you can “witter”.

      • Rose Marie Waldram says:

        Conversely, “BIG OIL” DOES CAUSE CANCER –(1) the product itself is a non-living, “lifeless” , substance once used only to waterproof boats; a substance which Nature made by pressing over millions of years of time the oils from prehistoric plants and animal life; however, the difference in the fact this is a product in which the light of life has been extinguished unless one sets fire to it which [and I don’t have time nor space to go into it here] is a form of artificial (synthetic) energy production and (2 the products made from refining this CRUDE OIL, the toxic bio-accumulative minions of the compound used to create chemical and biological warfare products which are used not only on other humans but also in agriculture to artificially “control” or artificially create a desire outcome or product to profit $pecial Interests which include but are not limited to the replacement of non-toxic non-invasive plants (foods/herbs) and animal products (unprocessed’unrefined foods) used in healing and dis-ease prevention which since the beginning of Time itself has been the advocacy of self-serving $pecial Interests.

        YES, CANCER CAN & IS TRIGGERED, INVITED BY MANY THINGS, IN FACT CANCER CAN BE CREATED BY THE MISUSED OF ANYTHING including uncontrolled and/or improperly-controlled substances which have, still are, used to create and/or are contained within genetically-mutated (“modified”) organisms as well as plants and animals used for food.

        For example: the “cure” for cancer was discovered 200 years ago but still is suppressed by $pecial Interests which resist losing a profitable means of employment [1 out of every 3, now has cancer] and any dis-ease requires the use of other merchandice [chemotheraputic medicines, artificial means of ambulation, communication, et al].

        Named for its crab-like appearance and migration throughout one’s body,, this dis-ease that ancient physicians and yesteryear’s researchers labeled “cancer” is, indeed, triggered by anything and everything contrary to the easily-understood simple instructions for “fueling, repair and maintenance” recommended by the Designer who created the human body.

        Everything contrary to these instructions provided by the “Manufacturer” of this electrochemically-operated carbon base structure that houses what is referred to as the human soul can become cancerous if improperly administered, used or processed. Cooking is itself a proces.

        Approximately 200 years ago, a Scottish-born clinician came too close to the truth when he discovered the “trophoblast phase of early pregnancy [the accelerated proliferation of cells in the first 7 to 8 weeks which is when the “blueprint” of the new human being is created] this doctor observed this growth phenomenon] and the growth of cancer cells are identical; however, that eras’ $pecial Interests suppressed Dr. Beard’s discovery of this truth and their influence is still with us today. .

        What if, having been “won” by politically-correct intimidation, Dr. Beard’s silence was then “rewarded” with a well-paying university teaching position, perhaps to prevent his revealing that uncontrolled trophoblastic (cancerous) cell growth during a 9-month pregnancy could produce an infant the size of the Empire State building?

        What if, in the 7th to 8th week of this trophoblastic growth of fetal tissue which is when a normally-growing baby’s pancreas becomes fully-formed, mature,,and begins producing the enzymes, trypsin and chymotrypsin, which are the slow-down/turn-off proteins involved not only in growth but also in tissue repair i.e.,healing, and its maintenance which should invite the question whether yesteryear’s health experts camouflaged this normal process by continuing to mislabel it “cancer” when it manifested then as result of a toxic-chemical-perverted and thereby uncontrolled, healing response to that eras’ coal-fueled industrial pollution and now [for the protection of drug manufacturers and their dependents which include their stockholders and employees of the insurance as well as other sickness-dependent care industries– is the current “stem-cell” therapy just a recycling and a relabeling of the same-old same-old now that coal smoke pollution has been replaced and/or is now joined by the radioactive toxins from defective or sabotaged nuclear energy sources, the poisonous gases and/or smothering ash and land-burying lava from earthquake-triggered volcanoes which can be influenced as much by offshore oil “drilling” as well as the excessive and inappropriate use of water resources in the building of geothermal steam energy, and the fracking of oil-sourced sand and shale?

        What if the average dis-eased and pain-suffering “patient” is still denied knowledge which would enable their choosing a physically, financially and emotionally pain-free, non-toxic controlf for or prevention of their dis-ease and that this fact obligates a re-investigation of the basics, the truths, for successful living especially those re nutrition against dis-ease which originated in that garden located East of Eden wherein –so it has been hypothesized by some of this era’s medical anthropologists– that those originally entrusted with its keep willfully and/or inadvertently failed to follow the warning and instruction of that garden’s Creator which may have been the invitation for an ancient equivalent of this eras’ door-to-door type sales associate to hang around until enabled thereby to snake a way by which to “sell” them a fast-breaking food the look of which was superficially pleasing but the internal result had the GMO potential to poison their liver’s so that it became unable to make the enzyme(s) vital to ascorbic-acid [natural “vitamin-C”] production which is why we humans as well as one species of fruit-eating bat, as well as the primates and guinea-pigs, to stay alive and healthy thereafter had to obtain this nutrient from ascorbic acid-rich food?

        What if Today’s advanced knowledge, especially in the arena of electromagnetic technology and especially the “silly” science of quantum physics –much of which the politically-correct a.k.a.the earth-flattering “Collectivists” whose own ignorance, by means of ridicule to create fear and its intimidation, deliberately outlaws or inadvertently disallows/discourages independent investigation?.

        What if any form of public scrutiny /or private investigation threatens $elf-$erving Interests which would rather the public remain ignorant of the fact that unless genetically altered by chronic exposure to poor nutrition and/or fluorine-bearing compounds such as drug base medicines, vaccines, and/or GMO created Frankenfoods, beverages and fluoridated water, the livers of most animals can make their own ascorbic-acid so that if the human liver could do this, the average human on a could conceivably live longer than the average which is, still, only 45 to 55 years,and, becoming aware of all this as well as the fact the term “Average” describes only “the best of the worst and the worst of the best”, could not the average person thereby become dis-ease free, possibly living longer thereby becoming a threat to the profits of certain $pecial interests?

        What if, in witnessing a couple of early humanoids consuming the fruit of a certain ” off-limits” tree which fruit was previously consumed only by one species of fruit-eating bat, the “monkey-see, monkey-do” characteristic of the primate species invited them to “ape” those humans whereupon, when this fruit-tree’s “leftovers” were cast upon the ground, the guinea-pig was also tempted to consume and was thereby also a victim of this first Frankenfood-poisoning?

        Medically-diagnosed at age 13 with clinical hypothyroidism –a subsequence of the WW2-era’s downwind radiation fallout in what was then known by the military-industrial complex as the Hanford, WA, nuclear reactor’s downwind “Greenrun Region” which included parts of British.Columbia, Canada, as well as the U.S. states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana; however, the regaining of, my health involved our family leaving Idaho to live in an unpolluted region of Alaska wherein a year later, consuming in the meantime only moose meat and home-grown garden produce, I’d detoxified to the point I no longer needed supplemental thyroid hormone; however, years’ later, married and again living “stateside”, adverse experiences with a medically-prescribed prenatal fluoride supplement followed a few years later by my own and my children’s adverse experience with a city’s fluoridated water prompted what has become a life-long struggle to successfully avoid and/or learn how to nutritionally mitigate and thereby manage to survive the many hazards of government-sponsored $pecial Interes subsidizedt technology.

  22. Ed Wagner says:

    1) Iceland has been using geothermal energy successfully for over 50 years.

    2) New Zealand is also using it successfully

    3) Fracking has NEVER been used in Hawaii.

    In Apr 2014, a complaint was filed against Hawaii Senator Russell Ruderman for introducing false & misleading legislation relating to fracking & development of geothermal energy & lying to the Hawaii Legislature, Community & County Council etc.

    He was removed from the Senate Energy Committee after the above complaint was sent to 5 Hawaii Senators.

    4) PGV was always problematic because it was using 20 or 40 year old technology when it became operational. 21st century technology is quite different and safe. Like I said, Iceland and New Zealand use modern geothermal technology successfully.

    5) bottom line —— your article is highly biased and uses a false story line since fracking has never been used in Hawaii.

    • Lovebird Kenney says:

      Thank you for this. Logic and sanity were very much needed.

    • Todd Millions says:

      Iceland(originally) used scrapped pre WW1ship medium pressure turbines of two intermeshed counter rotating multiple bucket rows. The steam and wads of hot water fed in thru one of the rotating shafts. Despite seal issues in the feed these performed very well as low pressure turbines with wads of boiling mineral laden water punching thru the intakes. These units lasted for decades.
      Since this was So effective at such a low cost-details were effectively suppressed for decades.
      The modern replacements-Much higher cost and not so reliable.
      Privatized makes this worse of course.
      How transferable?
      That is the question. Volcanic islands where the remaining population has to cower along and too close to the seashore so the cliffs provide some shelter from lahar flows for 5 generations are somewhat rare.
      Nonetheless the original geothermal conversion should have being a source of exportable expertise- to Japan for instance.
      No aid or development funding would be allowed by bankster owned advisers for anything effective and useful of course.
      That would interfere with the co-opting by Nuke A holes and their attached smuggling isreali “security ” blackmail/malware scams.
      Unit 731 /TEPCO division would Not be pleased.
