The number of earthquakes increasing? — Major earthquakes are becoming more frequent? The "experts" are all to convince the public that all of this is "normal" and that the number of earthquakes is not really growing. The USGS continues to insist that the frequency of large earthquakes "unchanged" and that there is no cause for alarm. The truth is that this year we are one step ahead in order to have more than two times the number of major earthquakes than we had 10 years ago. The media are far more interested in preserving the tranquility of people than to tell them the truth. Our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.8 in Virginia, about which we have just heard, perhaps, a sign of future disasters. Earthquake in Virginia is known as "one in a century" on the east coast. The earthquake was felt up to Ottawa, Canada. It was felt as far west, such as Cleveland, Ohio. This has prompted the evacuation of the building of Congress and the Pentagon. The earthquake was very powerful, cracks appeared in the Washington Monument, and now it is closed indefinitely for repairs. But that was not the only major seismic event in the United States on that day. With a magnitude 5.3 earthquake occurred along the border of Colorado / New Mexico. This was the largest earthquake in the region in 40 years. Well, when you look at the numbers, it quickly becomes clear that the number of earthquakes is increasing. Back in 2001, the world had 1361 earthquakes with a magnitude of 5.0 or higher. This year we have more than 2800. In fact, the number of major earthquakes this year will be the highest number we have seen in the last decade. Yes, technology can help us to detect more earthquakes than 50 or 100 years ago, but then there was a quantum jump in technology detecting earthquakes. But what we have seen in the last decade is a definite increase in the number of large earthquakes. The graph in the upper part of the article — an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.0 or higher. americandailyherald.com
Please keep in mind that this year (2011) we have more than 2800 earthquakes with a magnitude of 5.0 or higher. Once this number is recorded, the chart will look even more dramatic. The following table shows the number of earthquakes with magnitude 6.0 or higher since 1973. This chart from dlindquist.com, and includes data for this year. As you can see, the number of earthquakes with a magnitude of 6.0 200. —EndoftheamericandreamComment:
