No one is responding to my previous question so I decided to ask this other question, which is almost certain to generate more attention. I think there are more earthquakes lately. Now on a similar note, here’s my previous question:

Okay, I’m a little bit of an earthquake nut, and I visit the USGS website at least once a day, to check out all the most recent seismic activity. Recently I noticed some discrepancies on their "Earthquake Facts and Statistics" page, here: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/e…

Under the 2010 column, about a week ago I think it was, the numbers had been changed. Under the 8.0+ column, it showed 2 instead of just 1. That’s what caught my attention. I knew there had only been the 8.8 in Chile this year, no others. I checked the big list for the year just to be sure, and there was just that one. Then I noticed all the other numbers under the 2010 column were different too. It was really strange. By the next day it had been fixed, but then a couple days later it was back to those same bogus numbers again (then fixed again the next day).

Has anyone else ever noticed this happening, or perhaps have any explanation for how this happened?

Is the world coming to an end?
i have noticed that since year 2000, a lot of natural disasters have been occuring and seem to be intensifying as we draw even closer to 2012, i mean just this year alone we have had the earth quake in haiti, the earth quake in chile and the earth quake in turkey, the earthquake in indonesia, not to talk about the massive flood in portugal and the latest earthquake in china. is it just me or does it seem that the closer we get to 2012 the mayan end of the world the worse globally things seem to become. i am starting to think that all of these are signs and that on december 21 2012, that something will go wrong with the hadron collider in 2012 and BANG!, THE FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN AND BYE BYE WORLD WITH A BANG. just interested what are ur thoughts

pls ans

Okay, there have been a lot of earthquakes recently: a small on in Chicago, the one in Haiti, one in Chile, one in Mexico and one near Tibet, and now there’s volcanic activity in Iceland, which is basically a little chunk of land on a fault line. All of the earthquakes except for the 2.5 one in
Chicago have been above 7.0 in magnitude. Does this mean something’s going on with the earth’s crust?

Brazilian news have been reporting many earthquakes around the globe with emphazis on Haiti, Chile, Taiwan and now Mexico. It wasn’t like that last year or the years before. Is it only the media exploring disasters more fiercily or are we really facing a global catastrophe?

So as we’ve seen so far, there have been many earthquakes recently, haiti, Chile, Baja california, and Now China. So Can this trigger the so called Big One in California? should we be worried, I’ve been getting a lot of fordwards that an 8.4 magnitud earthquake will strike California Within the next 24 hrs.
Please write your comments.
Thank you.

So this year I have taken an interest in keeping up with earthquakes and where/when they are occurring. I’ve been checking this site http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/ at least every week if not everyday to keep track of recent earthquakes. A few things have caught my attention in the graph:
-Over the past few months I’ve noticed that there are usually an average of 200 earthquakes at one time on the map and last night I checked it and it jumped to 922, then when I checked it this morning it was up to 1000+….my question is why? and what are your opinions.
-Also, I’ve noticed that the graph never shows an earthquake occurring in Africa. Why is this? I imagine that like every other continent it has to have its share of earthquakes.
-I don’t know if its just me or maybe suddenly the news has decided to show more earthquake articles and such or maybe(although doubtful) I am watching more news than before and I was just never aware that earthquakes were so common. Especially with the earthquakes in Haiti, Chile, Baja California, and etc. Does anybody else find it odd and scary?

Ok…I asked a question on here not to long ago about all the big earthquakes happening in such a short span of time for this year alone.

We have had huge earthquakes in Haiti, Turkey, Japan, Indonesia, Chile, Baja California and now there was another one today in Spain at 6.2 and we are only in our 4th month for 2010.

I got a lot of intelligent answers explaining how the Earth plates shift and so on and so on which brings on an earthquake. But does anyone know WHY the plates beneath the Earth are shifting so frequently so that we are having these earthquakes one right after another all over the world?

I don’t want to be downer, but something huge is going on beneath the Earth and I’m not talking about only in California but the world.

When you step back and look at the big picture, it’s downright scary to me. I know what’s going to happen is going to happen but it’s still scary.

Your thoughts on this?

Major earthquakes have hit Haiti, then Chile, and now on the west coast. Does this mean we are in for a major shift in the tectonic plates that we are sitting on? What will that mean for the rest of the planet? How will the shapes of our continents be affected?
