Iceland expects eruption volcano

reykjavik - The Icelandic volcano Katla spits out large amounts of carbon dioxide. According to volcanologists, that indicates that the Katla can quickly reach a large eruption.

The observation that a lot of CO2 is emitted indicates, according to volcanologist Evgenia Uillishkaja, that a lot of magma is built up in the volcanic craters.

The volcano lies approximately 145 kilometers southeast of the capital Reykjavik. It is one of the most active and largest volcanoes in the country, but a huge eruption has not been there for a hundred years. The Katla is located east of the 'related' volcano the Eyjafjallajökull. In 2010, it has paralyzed European air traffic with large bursts of ash clouds.

    Since a weaaker Sun will riase cosmic rays on Earth and "Volcanic eruptions are triggered by cosmic rays" (Ebisuzaki et al 2011*), REPELLING those rays with tested Laser Plasma Shields, will stop devastating-COOLING electro-volcanic eruptions! 8 institutions announced simulations!

    * \nThe proposed Harvard Plasma Shield:
