aside from me, who thinks the earthquakes that are recently happening around the world are somehow connected? not just minor scale earthquakes but major ones reaching up to 7 richer scale.is it also somehow related to some of the sink holes being seen on some parts of the world?

this has also crossed my mind a long time ago. somehow it has escaped my mind and thank you for reminding me.. i actually hope everyone would think of it that way so we can all start preparing and not just waiting for our turn to come. we all need to prepare for such huge scale earthquakes or we'll all lose in the end.

I do I think every earthquake happen around the world are somewhat connected to each other and I think one of the cause is global warming. I hope it will stop because I afraid that there will be lots of sink hole create by those earthquake like the one happen in other country the big hole on the street I can't remember what is the name of that country. I think the riches man on earth are doing some action about this and I hope those rich people around the world will use their money to stop global warming. The first sink hole I ever saw on internet is the one seen in north pole or south I can't remember I just saw it on youtube I think until now the can't still measure it since its so huge that even a helicopter is like a rock on a playground.

I'm looking from a layman's point of view. They may or may not be related. A sinkhole may be a natural depression and one which can be aggravated by an earthquake. An earthquake, on the other hand, is the result of a geological rupture of the earth's crust.
