Part of the problem is you are indicating that these events (Sinkholes and water turning red) to an outside celestial body as the likely answer, when
the causes of these are internal (from the Earth itself) and very well known.
can form from various internal processes, such as large underground chambers that collapse
when they become empty of something (like ground water), and the empty chamber can no longer support the weight above it.
Some chambers of rock become more eroded over time due to water running through them (ground water that has accumulated due to heavy rain falls and
are moving underground).
Drought in some areas where the ground water has drastically reduced can also cause this.
Red Waters can have several sources, both human made (pollution) or natural (bacteria or iron seepage). In the case of isolated area where this has
happened with no pollution, it can still be caused by either bacteria or iron that becomes introduced into the water. The Earth's surface and water
is not static. They are dynamic and change all the time.
Are they happening more often? They may or may not be. As has been pointed out, in today's world we have much more connectivity than in the past.
You say that is a "lame" argument, that you didn't hear about it as often in the 70's or 80's.
How often were you on the internet back then? What internet? Would a lake in India turning red make the front page news of your local news paper?
Would it always be on the nightly news on your local television channel?
Most likely not.
You are dismissing something and calling it "lame" when it is a important factor, simply because it argues against what you are saying.
Don't dismiss it. Use it. Use the power of information that is at your finger tips now (that is even at the finger tips of some of the most remote
people of the Earth now). Research these subjects.
In other words: Don't SAY that things are increasing and are happening more now than in the past. SHOW that they are by using research, links and
