I've noticed something, but I'm uncertain as to the validity of this idea.
We see in North America, the San Andreas fault seems to be gliding along surprisingly easy. There seem to be evenly spaced out earthquakes all along the fault line, specifically the California part of the San Andreas.
What I'm wondering is:
a) If there has been a focusing of small, frequent earthquakes, releasing pressure in the California region of the San Andreas, is it possible that this is putting extra pressure on the Juan de Fuca subduction zone, which would result in possible tsunami/Volcanic activity?
b) If the amount of small and frequent earthquakes along the San Andreas in California is disproportionate to other areas along the San Andreas nearby, what could be the cause of this? (Fault type, which is transverse, geographical qualities of the crustal plates, HAARP)

It's a long thread to dig through, but hasn't the purported uptick in quake activity overall been shown to be more myth than fact in the Quake Watch 2012 thread? I know it's been discussed, and I believe completely debunked. If it's not in that thread, perhaps buried in a non-stickied thread somewhere else in the annals of Fragile Earth posting history.
Sorry, I took note of the information at the time when I saw it, just not exactly what thread it was in.
