Iceland's Grímsvötn Volcano Erupts — Ash Cloud Heading to Europe?


Iceland’s Grímsvötn volcano erupted on Saturday with an explosion that trumped last summer’s Eyjafjallajökull eruption whose ash cloud shut down the airports of Europe. Dave McGarvie, a volcanologist at the Open University in Milton Keynes, UK, says that although Grímsvötn is spewing 10 to 100 times more ash into the atmosphere than Eyjafjallajökull, the ash particles are bigger and heavier and so more likely to fall back to earth quickly.

  1. My property taxes pay for teachers, firefighters, and police. They havent gone down. If they could afford it last year, they should be good this year. When states want more money they go straight to threatening teachers, firefighters and police as the only way to go. If the state and local governments are that inept at budgeting all this money will do is enable them to still be inept. It will not solve the root problem. More of our money poorly spent.

  3. Thanks for the writeup. I definitely agree with what you are saying. I have been talking about this subject a lot lately with my brother so hopefully this will get him to see my point of view. Fingers crossed!
