Re: Antarctica and its Volcanism and Vostok
Ross Island is entirely volcanic in origin and is formed by four principal volcanoes-Mounts Erebus, Terror, Bird, and Terra Nova-as well as numerous smaller volcanoes and lava flows.
Of the volcanoes, only Erebus remains active. At 3794 meters, Mount Erebus is the highest point on Ross Island and the largest, most active volcano on the Antarctic continent.
It is almost always observed with a cloud of vapor rising from its summit crater.
Much eruptive and seismic activity has been observed, including ejections of volcanic bombs as much as 8 meters across.
At the summit, a l00-meter-deep outer crater about 650 meters across contains a similarly deep inner crater about 250 meters across, in which lies a lake of red, molten lava.

Re: Antarctica and its Volcanism and Vostok
The craters of Mount Erebus were first visited in March 1908 by members of Shackleton's expedition, who initially noted the "vast abyss" filled with great masses of steam that rose in a column 150 to 300 meters high.

During a brief clearing, they observed the crater and noted the steam explosions issuing from three well-defined openings at the bottom of the high cauldron. As recorded in the book by Shackleton (1909) the party also observed around the summit area "lumps of lava, large feldspar crystals, from one to three inches in length, and fragments of pumice; both feldspar' and pumice were in many cases coated with sulfur."

Re: Antarctica and its Volcanism and Vostok
That Antarctica has multiple volcanic domes, and the temperature and winds this past December have broken all previous records.

Things look as if they are heating up. It is NOT global warming that is melting the ice sheets...it is volcanic activity.

The Great Flood?

Two British researchers contend that a volcano violently erupted around 2,000 years ago and blew a large hole through the ice sheet in West Antarctic at around the year 207 B.C., and scientists confirm it was the largest volcanic eruption in Antarctica over the last 10,000 years.

Some other scientific journals point to 325 BC.

South Pole’s Record Breaking Week…(Corrected!)

Here’s more on South Pole Stations record breaking week of weather (Courtesy of South Pole Meteorology Office):

December 24th: The peak wind speed of 29 kts/33 mph broke the previous record of 28 kts/32 mph set in 1996.
December 24th: The temperature of -13.3°C/8.1°F broke the previous maximum temperature record of -15.7°C/3.7°F set in 1984.
December 25th: The temperature of -12.3°C/9.9°F broke the previous maximum temperature record of -17.2°C/1.0°F set in 1978.
December 25th: The temperature of -12.3°C/9.9°F broke the record for the all-time maximum temperature at South Pole. The previous record of -13.6°C/7.5°F was set on December 27, 1978.
December 30th: The peak wind speed of 25 kts/29 mph broke the previous record of 21 kts/24 mph set in 1989.

 Quoting: subzero86


The most rational answer is economic.

WW3, I have heard mixed theories on that one. The main concern with WW3 is the death toll that may take place.

EQ's are, overall, too isolated. We can have something like over in Japan, and we can say the tipping point has already been reached over there.

A big volcano can really fuck things up.

ET - some have already reached that tipping point.

See what I'm getting at?

Everything is a process of events. Will the overall event happen in one fell swoop? I don't think so. Maybe, but every event will be staggered. The only one that really isn't is the sun knocking out the grid. But, I think that all the events will be varied per area and person, but will all take place within the span of one generation.

The least traumatic way to make the leap, is to do it as a process. I imagine that is what is going to be most desired.

You know, just recently I heard a story that relates to this.

It's said that if you throw a frog in a pot filled with boiling water, the frog will jump out immediately, without sustaining any injuries !

But if you place a frog in a pot filled with cold water and place it on a stove and gently raise the temperature of the water, the frog will stay there and die !

All of these changes seem to come gradually and I'm afraid that many of us will not be sensitive enough to notice that "the boiling point" is approaching.

Perhaps if these events were to happen at a faster pace, more of us will awaken and realize the danger...

Maybe...but, there is also a type of trauma the spirit can go through. If we are eternal, and have life upon life to get it right, why does there need to be a 'faster' pace if it may be damaging to the spirit? From what I have gathered, we damaged the spirit through trauma before...and it takes many, many, many reincarnations just to get back to the place where the spirit was at prior to being traumatized.

Perhaps, it will all take place when divinely ready.

Some interesting stuff here about record heat in the northern hemisphere, I'm not sure if the same applies to the southern.

[link to www.wunderground.com]

While volcanism plays a part in local temperature trends, it's random and usually short-lived. The fact that Erebus has been continually erupting for hundreds, if not thousands, of years indicates that it is NOT the source of recent melting.

Anthropogenic warming seems to be ongoing and accelerating. Reject the idea at your peril. Adding volcanic heat & gasses will only make things worse, but volcanoes are still a minor contributor.

Good attempt at distraction though, 5 stars for that.

one question is would ww3 make temps here colder (nuke winter) or hotter (superheated atmosphere, billions of dead and rotting bodies of every species, and the earth split open in places).

and imaging how long it would take to piece together the grid, and infrastructure with no mfg left. survivors have to live more like robinson crusoe, but it'll probably be more like gilligans island with a hint of dirty harry

the economic doom is really the easiest to survive, as most stuff won't be destroyed (as much, at least)
my true fear is a bioattack.

i hope and pray we are wrong about any doom at all
