    It seems that there has been recent significant increase in 6.0 plus earthquakes and it seems that
    they are inching up the scale to 7.0 and who knows what after that.

    Ok, throw out the fear mongering. This is actual proof of a tremendous uptick heading toward the end of the year.
    Alvin, is this a bad sign or could this just stay on par for a while? It seems none of these big EQ’s are causing damage.

    41 earthquakes 6.0 and above for 2012. That averages 3.9 per month for the first 10.5 months of 2012.

    Outside of stats, I expect most of the people who visit this site, like me, have a “gut feeling” that all is not well. It’s awareness, like I have not seen one wasp this year. I hate wasps, but I like the hatred I have for them, and have been denied the expression of it this year.! (stupid I know) And if they fail to turn up again next year I will panic.
    They have always been there, and future generations should also experience the loathing or love, that we exibit towards them.
    Just in a panic moment.
    I used to think we can /could predict coming events. I do not anymore. And I never suspected my arch enemy ( Mr wasp) could teach me this lesson.
    The unravelling is happening now, subtle, un-noticed, quitely, but it is happening.
