Ummm...this thread is total FEAR MONGERING...
If you actually followed these events, you'd know hat Etna has been erupting all last year and Merapi started erupting in October of last year. Both are fairly active volcanos and by no means the largest. Try visiting Erik Klemetti's blog Eruptions for his analysis & some historical context...

Very interesting you brought this up. In 2008, my state endured a 5.4 quake. It was shortly after 4am. Before I went to sleep, I was looking out my window. It was cloudy/overcast that night. I suddenly observed this white ball of light descend from the haze, but quickly go back up into it. I had never seen anything like that before. Back in the late 1970's, I experienced anomalous Ufo sightings, but they were always on starry clear mild nights. I believe that what I observed was a quake light.

Another factor for the volcanic activity and earthquakes could be melting ice at the poles. the reduction in weight could get the tectonic plates moving to re-adjust earth.
When ice sheets melt, and reduce the load on the surface of the Earth, the land areas beneath them bounce back up. New, accurate observations are needed to investigate this uplift and its implications effectively. This article provides a topical starting point for investigating some applications of physics applied to the polar regions of the Earth, and interaction between the solid Earth, ice and oceans.

I think there are multiple factors hammering the planet.
