Iceland's disruptive volcano - The Big Picture - Boston.com


Iceland's disruptive volcano - The Big Picture - Boston.com

Today, British civil aviation authorities ordered the country's airspace closed as of noon, due to a cloud of ash drifting from the erupting Eyjafjallajökull volcano in Iceland. The volcano has erupted for the second time in less than a month, melting ice, shooting smoke and steam into the air and forcing hundreds of people to flee rising floodwaters. The volcanic ash has forced the cancellation of many flights and disrupted air traffic across northern Europe, stranding thousands of passengers. Collected here are photos of the most recent eruption, and of last month's eruptions, which were from the same volcano, just several miles further east. (18 photos total)

Iceland has certainly used up all its carbon credits by now. Someone should tell the volcano, or send it a bill. ;^)

I have not seen any report of the enviromental emissions released by the volcano. Or a comparison being made between the volcanos emissions and those released by man made emissions.
But we have the gov't release a press release yesterday that man made emissions are critical to the passage of cap and trade for control.

Thanks Time*treat! They're going to bill us via taxes, stuff the money down the volcano as an offering to appease it. ;-)

Thanks JAP! No doubt silence about the volcano until they can ram cap and trade down our throats like they did Obamacare.

Hey, it's Iceland's revenge against the EU banksters. They have someone bigger on their side-----> G O D

Thanks TigerAngel! That's one way to look at it.
