Thanks for the link. Unfortunately the writer of the article makes the basic error (on purpose?) of cherry picking a nice set of data that fits his
theory. You cannot pick from the 'significant' list. That is statistical nonsense.
If you look at the energy and counts since 1960 you find that by comparison the energy is lower and the count of quakes is not increasing
When I have eaten I will find the 2011 version of that but it does not make a great deal of difference. I will also dig out the 1930 to 2011 one.
If you want to see more information on this you could visit my Earthquake Reports site and take a look at the analysis for
. The report for 2010 is there as well.
We are at a peak and probably over that peak now. These cycles come in about 55 year batches and seem to be linked to the Sun and Grand Conjunctions.
It should get quieter for the next 20 to 30 years before it builds up to a peak again in around 50/60 years time.

Very true. Did you realise that the one single 9.1 Japan quake put out as much energy as the whole of 2007,2008,2009,2010 and 2011 (excluding the 9.1)
mag 6+ quakes and without the 1 quake 2011 would have been one of the lowest years for energy release?
This chart basically says it all. 1900 to 2011 showing the 1960 was tops and this is a much smaller blip at present.
