You all know I’ve been watching the frequency of earthquakes the past several years. I was doing my regular checking of the earthquake browser and this past month we’ve had 20 earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater. It may be nothing, just an anomalous month, but to put it in perspective – in 2011 which was the most active year for major earthquakes on record – we had 203 earthquakes all year. If this months trend were to continue – we’d see 2013 go far beyond that number. With all that we see going in the MIddle East with Syria and the upcoming pressure on Israel to force a division of the land I thought it was worth mentioning.
