    What was it they were saying about the Emissions from that Eruption in Chile a while back?...

    Wait until old rockhead gets the info on this. I'm sure barry will use this article to help push his cap and trade though.

    “Our work suggests that eventually there will be either somewhat larger eruptions or more frequent eruptions in Iceland in coming decades,” said Freysteinn Sigmundsson, a vulcanologist at the University of Iceland.

    “Global warming melts ice and this can influence magmatic systems,” he told Reuters. The end of the Ice Age 10,000 years ago coincided with a surge in volcanic activity in Iceland, apparently because huge ice caps thinned and the land rose.

    “We believe the reduction of ice has not been important in triggering this latest eruption,” he said of Eyjafjallajokull. “The eruption is happening under a relatively small ice cap.”

    Carolina Pagli, a geophysicist at the University of Leeds in England, said there were risks that climate change could also trigger volcanic eruptions or earthquakes in places such as Mount Erebus in Antarctica, the Aleutian islands of Alaska or Patagonia in South America.

    Global Warming is Responsible for EVERYTHING...

    Here's just some of the things!

    1.) Abnormally High Temps.

    2.) Abnormally Cool Temps.

    3.) Perfectly Average Temps.

    4.) Abnormally High Levels of Precipitation.

    5.) Abnormally Low Levels of Precipitation.

    6.) Perfectly Average Levels of Precipitation.

    7.) Meteors.

    8.) Black Holes.

    9.) Jock Itch.

    10.) The Sun Rising in the East.

    And that's just the First 10!

    A "Convenient" Scam, Global Warming is.

    :)

    If this eruption should continue several months, it could result in significant global cooling. About 10,000 years ago a volcano in that area erupted for 7 to 8 months.

    As a general rule, a small volcano can cool the earth for about a year. 1980 was a really cold year after St. Helens. And Pinutabo had a cooling effect as well.

    Worst cold spell for a long time was after Krakatoa. That was a year without a summer. And the winter of 1888 was spectacularly awful.

    So look for next year to be another cold one.

    Baruch, the year without a summer was 1816, also known as Eighteen Hundred and Froze to Death. And it resulted from another Indonesian volcano, Tambora.

    Icelandic volcanos are far more known for the chemicals in their eruptions.

    Ash fall in Iceland could contaminate drinking water: experts - Yahoo! News UK

    The fallout of volcanic ash over parts of Iceland could jeopardise the safety of drinking water, health authorities warned Friday, but said the greatest health risk was to livestock. Skip related content
    Related photos / videos Scientists are evaluating the quality of drinking water in Iceland following the volcanic …More Enlarge photo "It is important to prevent the ash from reaching water supplies, both for public and animal health reasons and for safe milk production," Halldor Runolfsson of the Icelandic Food and Veterinary Authority told AFP.

    His colleague Guthjon Gunnarsson said the agency was evaluating the quality of drinking water, which was mostly protected because it came from under ground.

    "Here in Iceland the (drinking) water is mostly groundwater so it is rather difficult for ash to heavily pollute it," he said.
