I have said for a long time that earthquake are not on the rise.
It's been some active years, but thats it.
I have been watching earth quakes for 5 or 6 years now, and can see some patterns but nothing out of the ordinary.
I think you are right in your research that they are not on thre rise just active.
People stay away from your thread because you use logic and facts, they don't like that in here, it has to be doom, and they like to connect it to
varius reasons like the sun, moon and imaginary hidden planets.
My conclusion on your question is no, based on observation, and the data you provide, proves it.
Also if you look at the daily maps on USGS and RSOE you can follow where energy is released and not, and the US look pretty safe to me as there is a
constant realease of energy in small earthquakes, places to watch out for are south america, with a lot of volcanic activity but not much in
earthquakes, Indonesia is also very queit, but the areas around are active, could be a lot of tension building up.
Also the monitoring station has grown in numbers the last 20 years, and i think from now on we will se more precise data, but we can not judge from
100 years of active quake monitoring if things are escalating or not.
I am no pro, so nothing i say is facts, but i do know what i am looking at.
