I think that earthquakes will increase worldwide, if the ice melts on Antarctica & Greenland, making sea level rise. I just hope that we will be able to stop emissions and reduce CO2 concentration on the atmosphere, before we have earthquakes all around us.

I live close to Mexico City, a place that is very vulnerable to earthquakes. They are usually originated on the Pacific, because the Coco’s plate is moving inward the North American Plate. I think that the Coco’s plate will accelerate the moving inward, with the additional pressure of sea level rise. I don't have a scientific study that will support that.

Finally, I don’t have a reason to think that earthquakes could not happen in the Arctic or Antarctica, if Greenland and Antarctica lose a huge amount of ice. I just think that it is common sense that it will happened.
