Birth Pains and earthquakes in diverse places: The absolutely astonishing growth of major earthquakes in just one hundred years!
In 2011, the year of the mag 9. Fukushima disaster in Japan our planet suffered 208 major quakes compared to 1911 when just 11 were recorded.
Strange: while mag 6 to 6.9 quakes have risen over one hundred years by as much as 450% earthquakes measured at mag 7 or higher have remained increadibly stable over the same period
