GLOBAL TRAVELERS BEWARE: Another Icelandic Volcano Is Rumbling
Jan. 3, 2012, 11:54 AM
Katla, yet another huge Icelandic volcano, is showing signs that it may soon erupt and cause chaos to world air transport.
Al Jazeera reports that earth tremors around the immense volcano are leading to concerns that an eruption could have both profound effects on Iceland's landscape, as well as disrupting travel worldwide. The volcano last erupted in 1918, making it well overdue for a blast, and it's lava chamber is thought to be some 10 times the size of Eyjafjallajökull, which erupted in 2010.
(By the way, this is hardly the only Icelandic volcano you should be worrying about. Last year we saw reports that Grimsvotn and Bárdarbunga, two other icelandic volcanos, were due to erupt.)
The threat is so great that devices that can be used to track ash particles in the air are currently being tested on European aircraft, Der Spiegel reports. Such devices should hopefully enable flights to continue in the event of an ash cloud following a volcanic eruption.
Some experts say that despite Katla's immense size, perhaps we're overreacting. Xinhua Net reports that scientists in Iceland are uncertain as to whether the volcano will actually erupt and, even if it did, they are unsure whether such an eruption would be large enough to cause major concern.
In 2010 the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, another Icelandic volcano, caused the grounding of numerous flights around the world with airlines concerned about the effect ash particles would have on airplanes' engines.

last year everyone was predicting Ice Age 2 if Katla erupted
At least we can pronounce this one
The Collapse of the EU could become an secondary issue to Europeans who suddenly have far more serious problems.
Or maybe they do know all about it ~
Maybe it takes "tough (geological) love" to get 'er started.
This could be it.
It isn't like it hasn't happened before so we have to just guess what the result would be. This has been cyclic in recorded history.
Anyone care to invest in some offshore windmills in the North Sea? Ash might work wonders on them

Yo think Eye - jaffa - jalla joe - cool was fun, you ain’t seen nuttin’ yet.
I believe this volcano is the one that historical climatologist Evelyn Browning-Garriss talks about in her interviews that she is the most concerned about.
Probably happen around 21 Dec...
I live half the year on my farm in Northern Ireland.
I left in late November due to the MONSTER, a huge storm that rolled in. Since then the weather has been unbearably cold and I am still in the states. I travel a lot between the US and Europe so this volcanic disturbance will greatly effect my flight itinerary.
Eye-jaffa-alla-joe has always erupted in sync with Katla
Everytime Katla eruption is mentioned, the word “overdue” is used
I have noted that.
There was no sign of any prior human habitation or even hunting camps!
No doubt the whole place gets burned off from time to time and recapped with a new basalt surface.
The apocalyptic prophecies of Hildegard of Bingen, the next Doctor of the Church
...At this time as a punishment for their sins Christians especially will attempt armed resistance to those who at that time are persecuting them, sensing no concern for the death of their bodies.
"A powerful wind will rise in the North carrying heavy fog and the densest dust by divine command and it will fill their throats and eyes so they will cease their savagery and be stricken with great fear.
Then within the Christian people the Holy Godhead will accomplish signs and wonders as if accomplished them at the time of Moses with the pillar of cloud and as Michael the archangel did when he fought the heathen for the sake of the Christians. Because of Michael's help Gods faithful children will march under his protection. They will decimate their foes and achieve victory through Gods power As a result of this a large number of heathens will join Christians in true faith and they will say The God of the Christians is true God because such wondrous works have been accomplished among the Christians .
