Climate Change Caused Volcano Eruptions

Didn’t you know; climate change caused that volcano in Iceland to erupt; right after the glacier on top of it melted from the heat from all those SUV’s?  I’m not making this up folks; this was the teaser headline, Melting Glaciers May Awaken Volcanoes , followed by, “The thaw of Iceland's ice caps, caused by climate change, may trigger more eruptions.”

We have Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent for Reuters to thank for reporting the latest “crisis”.  It’s the end of the world and mankind is to blame; now go and repent by saying five times, “Al Gore was right, Al Gore was right…”

‘“Our work suggests that eventually there will be either somewhat larger eruptions or more frequent eruptions in Iceland in coming decades,” said Freysteinn Sigmundsson, a vulcanologist at the University of Iceland.”

“Global warming melts ice and this can influence magmatic systems,” he told Reuters. The end of the Ice Age 10,000 years ago coincided with a surge in volcanic activity in Iceland, apparently because huge ice caps thinned and the land rose.”’

One last time in case you missed the message:

“He (Sigmundsson) said that melting ice seemed the main way in which climate change, blamed mainly on use of fossil fuels, could have knock-on effects on geology. The U.N. climate panel says that global warming will cause more floods, droughts and rising seas.”

Doyle must have taken several sips from the never ending pitcher of Kool-Aid supplied by The Church of Man Made Global Warming. He must also want us to believe ice cubes left on top of the stove melt, causing the front burner to light and boil water for tea.

“Almost all of the ice-covered regions of the Earth are melting — and seas are rising.” Al Gore, High Priest of The Church of Man Made Global Warming wrote his dire predictions according to an op-ed piece in the New York Times. Al Gore said it, I believe it, end of discussion! Get me another glass of the Kool-Aid, mine is running low.

I suppose if you only listen to or read the opinions, certainly not scientific data being supplied by The Church of Man Made Global Warming, it would be natural to believe their hoax. If, however, a reasonably intelligent person were to investigate, find out what scientists who are actually conducting research have documented, the results are somewhat different.

Robert Felix posted an article not too long ago, Our glaciers are growing, not melting , in which accredited scientist refuted the talking points of the IPCC’s fraudulent and intentionally misleading report to the U.N.

“Greenland’s ice-cap has thickened slightly in recent years despite wide predictions of a thaw triggered by global warming, said a team of scientists in October 2005. The 3,000-meter (9,842-feet) thick ice-cap is a key concern in debates about climate change because a total melt would raise world sea levels by about 7 meters. But satellite measurements show that more snow is falling and thickening the ice-cap, especially at high altitudes, according to the report in the journal Science.”

“The overall ice thickness changes are approximately plus 5 cm (1.9 inches) per year or 54 cm (21.26 inches) over 11 years, according to the experts at Norwegian, Russian and U.S. institutes led by Ola Johannessen at the Mohn Sverdrup center for Global Ocean Studies and Operational Oceanography in Norway. Not overwhelming growth, certainly, but a far cry from the catastrophic melting that we’ve been lead to believe.”

In other news, Chicken Little claimed, “The sky is falling!” Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent for Reuters, will be on the next bus to Norman, Oklahoma to interview and document this late breaking development.

I clearly need another pitcher of Kool-Aid.

My first thought upon reading about a volcanic eruption and thinning ice was to hypothesize that the heat of the volcanic activity caused the ice to thin.

I need therapy and lots of Kool-Aid to help me to understand that melting ice causes volcanos. If only I could get that whole cause and effect thing straight.

I suppose I am just doomed to hopelessly wander the world in a fog of logic and rationality.

Well at least I'm sure of one thing, that Phd scientist, the one claiming that the glacier melt is what made the volcano erupt....Phd really does mean Piled Higher and Deeper...

He was probably reading news reports and adding his own "between the lines".

"Doyle must have taken several sips from the never ending pitcher of Kool-Aid.."

He had the whole pitcher. So sick of these scumbags, on and on they go, trying to tax the crap out of us.

Probligo and MK;

The principles brought out by applying Occam’s razor, “entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity”, or in other words, when offered rational alternatives the less complex answer is likely to be correct. When applied to whether a volcano’s eruption was being caused by glaciers getting thin and making the area above tectonic plates less dense due to man made global warming and then relieving pressures which permitted tectonic plate movement which released magma and caused a volcanic eruption or the alternative of a volcano responding to natural tectonic movement releasing magma which then melted glacier ice; Occam’s razor points to the latter. In other words, the volcanologist who claimed man made global warming set off a volcano is full of crap and had a first cousin who sold snake oil to Indians.

The purpose of the global warming hoax is to set the stage for Cap & Trade, call it what you will; the entire agenda is to redistribute wealth from those who are productive while at the same time removing the ability to restore that wealth; the creation of a socialist world wide state.

For my reader in Asia, Glad you enjoy these articles.

A picture is worth all the words the global alarmist have to say.

They are still saying 4-5 days later the volcanow is erupting under the ice cap/glacier. I look at the pictures and the ice has receded by a mile(or so).

Woiwuerjhslkjf < I am not comfused, they are at best comfused, and at worst completely fubar, gaga, goofy, nuts, and need to check in at the local cooky farm.

Just thought I would throw that in there.

Ron, Just for the sake of science I put ice cubes on my stove top and sure enough, after they melted over night, in the morning I turned on the burner and boiled water for oatmeal. Gracious sakes alive, the global warming folks were right all along, melting ice will turn on the burners.

It gives me comfort knowing you are on the job T.F. :D.
