I’ll give them one thing—the Globe is a worthless liberal rag when it comes to news and views, but they put together some of the most stunning photo essays I’ve ever seen.
And all of that was caused when Global Warming melted some ice off a glacier...Yeah right.
violation of rule no # pics
If you don't believe global warming exists, simply dig deep enough from anywhere on earth and you will find it to be plenty hot. Volcanoes are direct proof of global warming.
Now manmade volcanoes are another thing entirely.
How so? The same as my proof of global warming?
The crust is cooler than the mantle.
Thanks. I didn’t think of that simple fact.
European airline pilots warn governments about engine failures caused by ash amid pressure to get flights moving again

European airline pilots warned governments and safety regulators today against making "rash" decisions to allow planes to fly through volcanic ash clouds amid growing pressure from airlines across Europe to create "safe flying corridors" to get flights moving again.
The pilots' intervention came as air traffic controllers dashed hopes that flights would resume from London Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted this evening by announcing that most UK airspace would remain closed until 1am tomorrow. Airlines said the restrictions, which meant only a few flights took off from airports in Scotland and northern England, were an over-reaction.
BA announced tonight it was cancelling all flights until midday tomorrow.
The UK's air safety watchdog, the Civil Aviation Authority, is holding meetings with national air traffic controllers, airline executives and Lord Adonis, the transport secretary, to discuss flying through zones with small amounts of ash.
