Nearly all species that have ever existed on Earth are now extinct and gone forever. We didnt kill them all. The natural process is an ongoing 'mass extinction' and subsequent renewal. Try to remain calm.
The solar wind isn't inflating the heliosphere as much as it used to," says McComas. "That means less shielding against cosmic rays." In addition to weakened solar wind, "Ulysses also finds that the sun's underlying magnetic field has weakened by more than 30% since the mid-1990s," says Posner. "This reduces natural shielding even more."

Could this also be attributable overall to increased monitoring of events due to ever increasing instrumentation placed around the globe and in earth orbit?
I dont know I would like to think they can account for such changes... I read somewhere that you also get a corrolation between volcanoes and ice ages for some reason...

Don't worry folks. A carbon tax will fix everything.
As for the sun-it is billions of years old and will live for many billions of years after we've gone. The sun won't change it's temperment in a century or even a millennium, to suggest that it won't is like suggesting we go through puberty in a nanosecond.
Visited the site.......OP are you sure this data is accurate and this is not just a HOAX. The claims being made have nothing backing them up.
If you think there have been more earthquakes than usual this year, you're right. A new study finds there were more than twice as many big earthquakes in the first quarter of 2014 as compared with the average since 1979. "We have recently experienced a period that has had one of the highest rates of great earthquakes ever recorded," said lead study author Tom Parsons, a research geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in Menlo Park, California.
Clearly there is not. There are bumps and dips in the record for stronger earthquakes. No trend in either direction.
Clearly there are increases.
Ok. Just curious about how you think a large body entering the outer solar system would affect weather and earthquake frequency but not things like tides.
yes I do have ideas but no sense in speaking of those here clearly.
