World's largest mud volcano to last 26 years

5 posts in this topic

The world's largest mud volcano will continue erupting for another 26 years, scientists said today.

Indonesia's Lusi volcano first erupted in 2005, killing 13 people and displacing 13,000 families in East Java.

At its height, the crater was oozing enough mud to fill over 50 Olympic-sized swimming pools every day.

Now, in the first reliable estimation of how long the volcano will continue erupting for, experts believe Lusi will not rest until 2037.

Its still amazing a few years down the track. Just a sea of mud. What a mess. No wonder the drilling company wants to blame nature itself for the problem.

I doubt anyone could afford that kind of compensation.

It shows how ignorant mankind still is. We poke holes in the ground and think that only good things will come out of them. But when something like this happens, the blame game starts.

Hopfully no one else will be harmed by it in the future.
