    That’s an interesting post. In 2010 I noticed a correlation between Earth facing solar coronal holes and larger earthquakes. I chatted about it on a facebook group and suggested a linkage with open field lines from the coronal holes (sketchy linkage idea). Ben Davidson read it and started his Suspicious Observers youtube channel with that idea. I also told Piers Corbyn, who I was working with at the time, he later claimed he had already thought of it. But after looking at larger sample of large quakes over the next few weeks, I saw that about a third had no Earth facing coronal holes, but nearly all of them were associated with a period of very slow solar wind speeds (of say 5-8 days). Which the Earth facing coronal holes are a good proxy for, the faster solar wind comes 3-4 days after the Earth facing position. Some of the large quakes occurred later on during the low solar wind speed period, and some occurred in the first couple of days of faster solar wind after the slow period. These correlations are active during sunspot cycle minimum when there may be zero sunspots.
