Researchers at the University of Colorado have found more evidence that an increase in earthquakes on the Colorado-New Mexico border since 2001 was caused by wells that inject wastewater from oil and gas production back underground. Quakes in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas have also been linked to the practice. (AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez, File)
