The average energy in Exajoules for the eleven year period is 13.3, and 2010 is only just above that at 14.3. This is dwarfed by 2000 which was 20.9!
In fact in the energy release rankings 2010 is a second division team being only 7th highest out of 11 or if you prefer ranking 5th behind 2009, 2007, 2002 and 2000.
The only one I've found is this, but it isn't super specific.
Thanks for the plug Puterman

To cut a long story short (and I could make it much longer but I have to go out) yes currently earthquakes are on the increase by comparison to two or so decades before, but not to the 1905/60 decades. The incidence of mega-quakes is cyclical and MAY be related to the 55 year sun cycle since it seems to coincide but I have not have time to complete that study.
Seek out New Concepts in Global Tectonics Newsletter, no. 60, September, 2011 - in fact you can download it and other from here. This news letter which came out in September appears to confirm my ~55 year cycle.
IF this is correct then we MAY have just passed through the top of the cycle and expect one mega-quake in the next 2 years of so of around 8.5 and then slide back into another 30 or so years of relative quiet before we ramp up towards the top of the next peak around 2040/2050 ish.
You can use ATS search engine and find many answers.

Off topic question but... what is the 'K' count under our profile names (after stars and flags etc) ?? It's been bugging me!!!

And oh, whoever posted that 120 micron GEE waveform at C.GO05 or C.GO09, that quake was very minor. As in not even a 4.
W= "Way above top secret" = What people think of you as a starter of threads. An accumulative measure based mainly on flags and stars.W is the "WATS Index", calculated as: ((FLAGS x 5) x STARS)/1000000.
K="Karma"= What people think of you as a writer of replies to threads. More emphasis on stars. The formula also includes an element of "divide by the number of posts", so it can go down as well as up. Everybody starts with 20, which goes down rapidly as they keep posting.
