This eruption in Iceland has interrupted air traffic for millions of people in Northern Europe, and could continue for weeks according to scientists.

Could this eruption be part of a chain of recent geological events resulting from man made global warming?

Regardless of the causes, in my opinion, we should take emergency measures to halt our dumping of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.


  1. "Could this eruption be part of a chain of recent geological events resulting from man made global warming?"

    Jesus Christ. Dave, you are guilty of BAD SCIENCE! Geology is only affected by global warming when there is glacial melt, as glaciers are geologic features. (and, I guess water level rise covering land) How the tectonic plates move and pressure is relieved has NOTHING to do with the atmosphere. PLEASE do not go around saying things like this, it's first false but also promotes others possibly using bad science. We don't need more ignorance in this world.

    By the way, Iceland is directly on the mid-atlantic ridge zone AND on a hotspot, so volcanic activity here is very common. Did you know that a volcanic eruption there created a small island in like a few days? That's very impressive!

  2. *Also, volcanoes are the biggest producer of "greenhouse gasses". Also though, without them we wouldn't have our current atmosphere and our water, we wouldn't be here without volcanoes!

  3. the volcano/island in question that was produced very quickly.

  4. @Incog.: Thank you for your comment!

    I am only asking a question; I don't claim to be a climatologist. However, it is not unreasonable to me that the temperature of the atmosphere might affect the core temperature of the planet, which I could certainly imagine might cause more frequent, and stronger volcanic eruptions planet-wide.
