Iceland Glacier Volcano May Erupt

Screen shot 2014-08-20 at 10.59.12 PM

Iceland is a hot spot right on the rift valley in the Atlantic Ocean and has many volcanos many of whom are quite active.  The French Revolution followed a major volcanic event 200 years ago which destroyed the crops and led to food riots, for example.  As it is, this cold summer will be colder if there is a major eruption.

 

A huge volcano in Iceland may be getting ready to erupt

 

Bárðarbunga is part of a volcano system underneath a massive glacier in the center of the country. And, since Saturday, seismologists have detected some 3,000 earthquakes in the region — a sign that magma may be on the move. So far, there’s no sign that the magma is migrating upward, but Iceland is on high alert.

 

iceland's largest ice sheet where volcano eruption will happen

The Google maps shot shows some of the biggest glacier in Iceland where there are several volcanic rift spots that can erupt and melt the ice.  This, if it happens, can cause an even cooler winter this year.

Looks like the rift next to this volcano is active.  Rift volcanic events are quite dangerous.

Meanwhile, the Atlantic hurricane season continues to be total dud.  Fall 2014: Polar Vortex To Visit Northeast; South At Risk For Tropical Hit is a typical prediction which goes under ‘Duh’ this year.

 

“While the West undergoes another period of heat and dryness, the Southwest, South and Texas will experience a soggy end to 2014. For the Northeast, blasts of winterlike air will arrive early this fall, serving as a reminder of last winter’s brutality.

 

“As wild weather unfolds across the nation, the tropics will also ramp up, putting the eastern coast of the United States at the highest risk for a direct impact.” officials stated…”The vortex could slip at times, maybe even briefly in September for the Northeast,” AccuWeather lead long-range forecaster Paul Pastelok said. “There could be a significant shot of chilly air that comes across the Great Lakes region and into the interior Northeast sometime in mid- to late-September.”

They are still predicting an el Nino! And thus, it should be a warmer winter after a cold fall…right.  Note the tropical storm prediction!  HAHAHA.  And ‘turning stormy’ for where I live in NY: it has been ‘stormy’ all summer!  They even have the ‘drought holds’ for half of Arizona that has been literally drowning this monsoon season.  Hilarious.  There is no sign of an el Nino in either the equatorial Pacific or Atlantic Oceans.

Yes, the sun is going on vacation and global warming will be a bad joke.

    Too bad there is more, not less ice surrounding Antarctica and the ocean there is very cold, too. 🙂

    What menaces our and all other cities are race riots, religious warfare and imperial bombing raids.

    Nutella facing Hazelnut shortage due to frost.

    I bet the propagandists could find no way to spin it into a global warming story, so they didn’t even touch the weather scare button.

    Yes, isn’t that utterly insane! They are planning a huge anti-CO2 demonstration in Manhattan end of September and I am expecting a possible blizzard that week.

    Anti-CO2 demonstration? Does the chemistry lab know? They might have to lock it up!

    They will all promise to not exhale. 🙂

    Time will tell if there is a blizzard over the ‘NYC protest’. I think you will get a kick out of;
    The Washington Post: The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway.
    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
    Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.

    I apologize, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 90+ years ago.

    Lets hope its cold and long so that the masses will rebel against ‘carbon taxes and other disinformation’.http://news.yahoo.com/earths-missing-heat-found-182808474.html

  8. Alaskan Ice

    In the last couple centuries atmospheric CO2 concentrations have risen from 3 parts per million to about 6 parts per million.

    Considering that CO2 concentrations have fluctuated between 1 part per million and 50 parts per million over the last 600 million years or so, and during that time period temperatures have been lower when concentrations were higher than they are now, I’m not concerned about anthropogenic global warming or atmospheric CO2 in general.

    Too bad because warmer winters would be nice in Alaska.

    Here, Elaine, you like these kinds of things — did you see this story?

    Just offhand, that looks to me like another volcano trying to be born. It isn’t just one stretch of land moving along sideways with respect to another stretch of land, it looks like it is swelling and going to pop.
