The liberals say to ignore it and it will go away until we can come up with another crisis.

everyone has such little faith in mom nature, as well many have huge egos thinking that we puny humans can have any measurable effect on the planet

I can continue driving my Shelby Mustang guilt free now that some thing is spewing more pollution than my exhaust pipes.

Hmmm. Mount Etna in Italy today and that one in Indonesia, what, a week back?

Current theory is that the Little Ice Age was caused by a long series of volcanic eruptions.

Boys and girls, time to dig out that long underwear, it is beginning to look like a cold decade ahead of us.

And considering the death toll of the Little Ice Age--which we have not quite recovered from yet--we had better hope it is only a decade.

After Mt. Pinitubo erupted way back in the early 1990's and the effect on the weather was profound

If anything, these recent eruptions will serve to stave off climate warming for awhile, unfortunately filling our atmosphere with more particulate.

I lived in Belpasso, just up the mtn from Motta, in the 70s while stationed at Sigonella Navy Base. The ash from eruptions would make black drifts on my balcony & sides of the road, get under windshield wipers & scratch the glass, & even make our faces break out from the fine ash in our pores. It was beautiful to watch the red glow of the lava up on the mtn at night, but the falling ash was a pain. I scooped up a dustpan of it to save & my grandsons are taking it to school the week for show & tell on current events. They think Grandma is quite cool. :)

I got to fly right by Etna when she erupted in 1983 It was an amazing site. And because you mentioned Motta, the best Lasagna I ever had in my life was at a restaurant there.

I don't think it much matters if you blame it on Gore or John. The end results will be the same!
