Is the magnitude of our earthquakes getting stronger due to climate change?

    Earthquakes are not noticeably affected by climate change. The atmospheric climate has little to do with causing tectonic plate shift which cause earthquakes however the climate can be affected itself by earthquakes that can release large amounts of volcanic greenhouse gases. Earthquakes are caused usually at a fault line on the earth’s crust which is where the large tectonic plates that make up the planet meet one another. There are many fault lines all over the globe and earthquakes can happen anywhere. The magnitudes of these earthquakes however have not been impacted in any noticeable form from the climate change.
