You really can not predict an earthquakes just by looking at solar activity, there is no direct link.
I've been researching some data and checking all the 7+ earthquakes from 2005 till 2011.
I've only done 2005 till 2007 and i cant find any direct connection between earthquakes,solar activity and geomagnetic data,
but still have some years to do, so who knows... but my guess is no direct links from those years(2005-2006-2007).
I've also checked for planetary alignements on those days and there is always some sort of earth-sun-planets alignement. So my first thought would be planets have more effect on earthquakes than solar activity.
The only thing i found with solar activity was that, on 90% of the 7+ quakes, there was a solar wind speed with average of 500-600km/s(normally 300km/s), so that could be some sort of indication, but i cant say that now, still have some other data to verify and maybe finding some links,...
On 4 quakes there was CME recorded 1-2 days before.
I want to take a look at some earthcrust-data, volcanic activity (pressures, movements and such) if someone have some links for those data? always welcome to share
When the ejection is directed towards the Earth and reaches it as an interplanetary CME (ICME), the shock wave of the traveling mass of Solar Energetic Particles causes a geomagnetic storm that may disrupt the Earth's magnetosphere, compressing it on the day side and extending the night-side magnetic tail. When the magnetosphere reconnects on the nightside, it releases power on the order of terawatt scale, which is directed back toward the Earth's upper atmosphere
This process can cause particularly strong auroras in large regions around Earth's magnetic poles. These are also known as the Northern Lights (aurora borealis) in the northern hemisphere, and the Southern Lights (aurora australis) in the southern hemisphere. Coronal mass ejections, along with solar flares of other origin, can disrupt radio transmissions and cause damage to satellites and electrical transmission line facilities, resulting in potentially massive and long-lasting power outages.
Humans in space or at high altitudes, for example, in airplanes, risk exposure to intense radiation. Short-term damage may include skin irritation with potential increased risk of developing skin cancer, but it's likely that any affected individuals would recover from any such exposure.
The sunspot will cause the Earth's atmosphere to heat up, potentially creating problems to powerlines, radio transmitters and delicate equipment such as mobile phones and computers.
Over the past 5 months there has been an increase in solar activity thus an increase in seismic activity, such as the earthquakes in Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, Haiti, Chile, Turkey, and China and the volcanic eruption in Iceland. NASA’s STEREO program has been monitoring solar activity and has observed a significant amount of solar phenomenon. All of these earthquakes occurred in locations closest to the edges of the tectonic plates. Solar activity has a direct relationship on seismic activity. Think of a solar wind as a stream of plasma or energy hitting the Earth’s magnetic field for a period of 2-3 days. Granted, there has been solar phenomenon throughout the existence of our solar system, and seismic activity as well. The point is the two go hand in hand and solar activity has a direct effect on the planet’s tectonic plate movement. It is basically the driving force for the tectonic plates. As a result Earth’s core temperature gradually increases. This increase in the Earth’s core temperature causes the core to expand, thus causing Earth’s crust to be pushed outward and tectonic plates to move all at once, moving easier due to the hotter surface underneath it. As a result you see fissures created, earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes erupting. A simple analogy would be to compare the planet to a space ship protected by a force field. When plasma blasts are fired at the shield, the field generator heats up. If too much plasma blast is fired at the ship, the generator over heats and the ship is vulnerable to exposure to plasma blasts. This same analogy could be applied to the planet, but the planet’s generator does not cease to function. It just overheats. As a result of the core overheating it causes earthquakes. A simple calorimetry equation could be applied to this to explain how energy causes temperatures to rise.
What’s the News: Geologists have known for years that tectonic plates affect climate patterns. Now they say that the opposite is also true, finding that intensifying climate events can move tectonic plates. Using models based on known monsoonal and plate movement patterns, geologists say that the Indian Plate has accelerated by about 20% over the past 10 million years. “The significance of this finding lies in recognising for the first time that long-term climate changes have the potential to act as a force and influence the motion of tectonic plates,” Australian National University researcher

I think any activity will be a huge solar blast, not an earthquake, this is heading for us... www.myweathertech.com...
Iaffaldano stressed that his study did not mean that global warming would translate to stronger earthquakes happening more often, with the relevant patterns developing over "the order of millions of years".

This article is an example of how anything can be proven scientifically if you simply discard enough of the evidence to the contrary.
The NEW scientific process:
1. Figure out where you want to be in the political power structure in 5-10 years.
2. Decide what ‘scientific discovery’ will provide that boost to your status.
3. Find an experiment that will have this scientific discovery as it’s outcome.
4. Ignore every other indication to the contrary.
5. Publish, publish, publish.
6. Repeat step 5 as necessary.

What I find interesting is that the end of the article admits that this cannot be an effect of global warming. This is despite the fact that the title’s wording is intended to suggest a link between the two.
