****A Geologist Discusses the Erupting Iceland Volcano & her sister Katla*****
As a geologist (masters degree) I have written for 30 years on issues of geologic hazards for numerous publications and made presentations to governmental entities regarding same. I preach preparedness for disaster as a way of mitigation for the inevitable. This is my heads up for your readers.

The unpronounceable Icelandic volcano (Eyjafjallajokull) that is currently erupting and disrupting air traffic mostly over Europe is becoming quite a demonstration of natures ability to mess with our technology. A much bigger worry is a nearby volcano called Katla which is also located under a huge ice cap on iceland. Katla is one of the most dangerous volcanoes on the island and in the northern hemisphere. There seems to be a historic connection between the eruptions of Eyjafjallajokull and Katla which is potentially a very bad thing. These volcanoes are of a scale significant enough to literally cool the climate enough to effect agriculture on a world wide basis. One of the eruptions of Katla is being tied to the french revolution (famine) and if you don't think that major social upheavals can be food related, then you need to be reading the P.E.T.A. web site not this one.

In other words, if this volcanic system starts to really clear it's throat and start singing, we won't be worrying about global warming for a while. But we will be worried about the food lines and rationing cards put out by the government to control the flow of rare commodities such as edibles. A serious volcanic event is just about all it would take to throw many world economies that are teetering on the brink regardless, right over the edge. Massive quantities of SO2 thrown into the stratosphere will cool the planet rapidly and likely could give us several years of terrible harvests. Get your pantry in order if it's not already.

That is incorrect information! The Laki event, not Katla, is associated with the French Revoltion famine! Please stop spreading disinfo.

Laki:

[link to iceland.vefur.is]
[link to www.volcano.si.edu]
Laki is a fissure in the south of Iceland that is part of a volcanic fissure system centering on the Grímsvötn volcano and including the Thórdarhyrna volcano. The Grímsvötn volcano is a Caldera. This volcanic system last erupted in 1783 for a period of 8 months and is rated a VEI 6 event, the eruption classification being Plinian/Ultra-Plinian. You can read more about the 1783 event in the link above or you can Google it.
BIG Badaboom!
