Ash Backward (Global Warming Causes Volcanic Eruptions?)
Investors.com ^ | April 19, 2010 | INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY Staff

Posted on 04/19/2010 5:58:49 PM PDT by raptor22

Science: An Icelandic scientist says climate change spurs volcanic eruptions such as the one disrupting air traffic in Europe. Rather, the evidence suggests volcanoes cause global cooling and Arctic ice to melt.

The stunning eruption of a volcano under Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull glacier has disrupted air traffic over the continent of Europe as vast plumes of steam and ash were spewed into the atmosphere. Once again, we witness the power of nature over man even as man blames himself for nature's acts.

Almost every malady on earth has been blamed on global warming, so it wasn't all that surprising when Freysteinn Sigmundsson, a volcanologist at the University of Iceland, and Carolina Pagli, a geophysicist at the University of Leeds, blamed the Icelandic eruption on man-made climate change.

I’m pretty sure if you put a slab of ice on a pot of boiling water the ice will never melt unless you put a running SUV in the same room.

But Iceland is an Island. We need to send Marines there, let it capsize, and that will extinguish the Volcano. So Simple Im surprised a Democrat congressman hasn't suggested it yet.

The volcano is spewing a lot of CO2. Maybe the Libs should figure out a way to tax it?

Or better yet, throw a huge blanket over it. After all, CO2 is bad for the environment.

You should read the below article. It is pretty funny.

Stupid ass woman... That's about all I can say....

She, or the place she works for must be in the hunt for more government funding. This could be a new angle they can use to bleed us dry.

Finally, an explanation that makes sense, baby! My preacher [of the same denomination as our DrEnglebert] also told our congregation that earthquakes and hurricanes are caused by (well not directly, but by gods being angry about) women wearing all black, and using cellphones while driving. I for one believe it.

If it weren’t so frustrating, costly and dangerous, it would be hilarious, these people.

So global warming melts the ice, not the lava.

That would be like turning the air conditioner up one degree then taking an ice cube and putting it on a hot pan on the stove and saying it’s the one degree difference in room temperature causing the ice cube to melt.

Alright, the premise that melting ice caps induced the eruption is almost as funny as the idea that volcanic eruptions on the Gakkel Ridge started in 1999. OH dear God.

Uh, don't liberals realize that magma is hot?

Do they also not realize that magma is definitely hot enough to melt ice from even deep within the Earth?

Do liberals also not understand that you eliminate the simplest explanation first before you start inventing new, more complex theories if you want to serve science and truth?

Guess not.

What rubbish. 650’ of ice keeps the lid on a volcano? Volcanos erupt on the ocean floor with much more on top of them than 650 ‘ of ice. Try 20K - 35K feet of sea water. Next......

The important is to tax that volcano,,being as the American taxpayes are the most affulent they will bear the entire burden of the tax. (That’s how it’s done in Wash D.C. ain’t it ?) Now. on to more pressing scams!!!

That appears to be an accurate summation of global warming theory. Of course some say that a gathering of conservative Republicans would substitute for the SUV.

Probably. And if they ever acquire an interest in serving, science OR truth, that's probably what they'll do.

God gets mad if women wear all black?? What's your preacher's take on 1 Peter 3:3-4 "3 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. 4 Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight." (NIV) That would seem to RECOMMEND modest dress. And what about the Amish? Has someone told THEM about this?

Maybe the eruption was caused when someone in Iceland played a DVD of An Incontinent Goof, er, An Inconvenient Doof. Whatever, you get the idea. Anyway, I know I always feel like I'm going to explode when I hear Big Al blathering.

Not only were they drilling in Iceland, they are currently drilling the world's deepest geothermal well. The goal is to drill it to 4,500 meters to locate and potentially utilize supercritical water for energy production.

I’ll say. 4500 meters is about 15,000 feet. That’s one hell of a deep hole.

Volcanic ash cloud: Pilots warn against 'rash' decisions to allow flights

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. But the European Cockpit Association, told the Guardian today that any attempts to establish "safe flying corridors" through airspace where ash was present should not be rushed.
