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.
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.
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.
