    t r u t h o u t | Indonesia: This Volcano Brought to You By Philip Morris

    For God's sake, these people are already suffering. Why the hell can't they be allowed to smoke?

    This is a really serious situation. Merapi is following a pattern, by the little we know of caldera type eruptions, that is similiar to Krakatoa and Tambora. The evacuation zone should by extended much further out than 12 miles. And, in the meantime, or back at the ranch, Anak Krakatoa is also in an eruptive phase.

    I hope that we have some siesmic equipment that has been recording deep activity that has been in place since the subduction quake that created the great tsunami. Seems that with 22 volcanos acting up in Indonesia, there is a connection.

    I should have looked to see whether there was a thread about the volcanoes in Indonesia before I posted a crabby little bitch about the smoking ban, Old Rocks.

    I just cannot imagine deliberately adding to the stress of the evacuees. WHY?
