Nuclear Weapons Testing Causing Tectonic Plate Movement.
This thought has often plagued my mind over many years. This tinkering with dangerous toys has been a human trait for millennia. Is it a far fetched notion that decades of mega- ton fireworks have not had an axis shifting, tectonic plate vibrating effect, culminating in a response from nature, unimaginable in our careless minds? The links below detail nuclear testing and the map, locations of nuclear weapon detonations.
"A powerful 6.0-magnitude earthquake struck off Japan’s coast Tuesday. The tremor came at 09:49am GMT near the eastern coast of the main Honshu Island. The quake is one of a series of aftershocks following Friday’s "9.0 magnitude earthquake"
"From the first nuclear test in 1945 until tests by Pakistan in 1998, there was never a period of more than 22 months with no nuclear testing. June 1998 to October 2006 was the longest period since 1945 with no acknowledged nuclear tests." This fact taken from here. Plus an interesting page shown here.
I looked at the approximate geographical relationship with the North Korean suspected test just one year ago and will attempt to attach my map. Should such a relationship be proven it would be a terrible irony that the first ever nation subjected to the horror of an atomic/nuclear attack, should suffer many years later from the residual stirring of nature's giants by it's human pygmies. Just saying.

My calculations show the distance between the two locations is barely 500 nautical miles. Not far in nuclear blast reverberations, I suspect. Hell of a way to nuke your unloved neighbour, trigger an earthquake!
