After three other dormant volcanoes showed movement along the West coast ( just over the past few hours – late PM May 15th), now we see the area near Mammoth Mountain Volcano, located in Central Eastern California, has experienced a 3.2M earthquake.

Wanna really crap your pants? Check this....volcanic activity everywhere!
A magnitude-6.8 earthquake that shook northeast Japan on Wednesday was an aftershock of the devastating 2011 quake that triggered a massive tsunami and nuclear power plant meltdown.
“We consider this morning’s earthquake to be an aftershock of the 2011 Northeastern Pacific Earthquake,” said Yohei Hasegawa, an official at the Japanese meteorological agency.

That right there should tell you that it's pure garbage and a waste of time.
"Foreshock" and "aftershock" are relative terms. Foreshocks are earthquakes that precede larger earthquakes in the same location. Aftershocks are smaller earthquakes that occur in the same general area during the days to years following a larger event or "mainshock." They occur within 1-2 fault lengths away and during the period of time before the background seismicity level has resumed. As a general rule, aftershocks represent minor readjustments along the portion of a fault that slipped at the time of the mainshock. The frequency of these aftershocks decreases with time. Historically, deep earthquakes (>30 km) are much less likely to be followed by aftershocks than shallow earthquakes.

We can only be a parasite on this planet for so long before it comes back to bite us in the you know what.
What rise in volcanic activity? No significant increase in the past 40 years.
Has anyone ever bothered to correlate the rise in volcanic activity with CO2 levels and it's possible link to climate?
Yes, because we are burning a lot of fossil fuels and producing a lot more CO2 than volcanoes do.
I mean, we're talking about a lot of Co2 lately. Historically more than in a long time.
