Q: Do solar flares or magnetic storms (space weather) cause earthquakes?
Solar flares and magnetic storms belong to a set of phenomena known collectively as "space weather". Technological systems and the activities of modern civilization can be affected by changing space-weather conditions. However, it has never been demonstrated that there is a causal relationship between space weather and earthquakes. Indeed, over the course of the Sun's 11-year variable cycle, the occurrence of flares and magnetic storms waxes and wanes, but earthquakes occur without any such 11-year variability. Since earthquakes are driven by processes in the Earth's interior, they would occur even if solar flares and magnetic storms were to somehow cease occurring.

The prediction you made and others who do the same is why I joined ATS.
Well that and to piss off conservatives.
...these people rarely remember what they've posted let alone what prediction
you've made. Predict away, that is what ATS is all about.
And you were not being doomish in any way.

I'm going to go with near Vancouver B.C. I'm thinking 7.5 - 9.5 just to outdo the OP!
My reasoning is that in the movie 2012 they made a reference to it happening in 2010 or something. The reason for the difference in years is they stopped H.A.R.R.P. because of the movie and to many people knowing of it. TPTB will now do it cause, that's what they do!
If you can't gather a conclusion from 1973-2008 then how are you doing to draw one from 1973-2012?
