THE eruption in Iceland is not large as volcanoes go, but the cloud over Europe has shed light on the awkward overlay of human commerce and a hot, churning, unpredictable Earth.It raises the question of what can be done to prepare for geological events that could alter the planet's climate for years at a stretch.
I don't really know that there's much we can do, other than put evacuation procedures in place and hope for the best. However, I predict that if an ash cloud big enough to disrupt flights for two years - as has been predicted by some - arrives, we'll come up with a way to blow it up...
We all look for truth, however when we find it, some times we wish we hadn't. R. Burch

This volcano exuded more CO2 in the first five minutes than all the internal combustion engines ever made. I guess we are going to just fry, according to the man made climate change warming people.
