Default Re: Earthquakes

I do want you to feel better Rocky.

The page states 1.3 million (estimated) 2.0 - 2.9mag annually. Their recorded figures which you quote were far lower.

The vast majority of the quakes on the map you reference are 3.0 or less as shown here.

The figures rise as the equipment and methodology improve. I'm not saying that you're foolish or wrong. It just seems to me that lots of (relatively) minor quakes in fault regions is quite normal.
