Volcano Mystery Finally Solved

Posted on October 22, 2012 8:00 am

A team of University of Southampton geologists say they have uncovered the “trigger” mechanism that causes volcanoes to erupt.

Turns out it’s Al Gore angering the volcano gods by blaming eruptions on global warming.

    How can they be sure that it isn’t the result of Michael Moore eating too many re-fried beans?

  2. Burmashave says:

    There is too much. Let me sum up:

    Volcanoes happen when the “special nodules” in the “volcano documents” (a.k.a. the Volcano Diaries) are heated and become “mushy.”

    On second thought, the authors could well be describing a marshmallow roast.

  3. Writer says:

    one of the Climate Change nutballs have ever been able to explain how they account for the volcanic CO2 emissions emissions.
    They did admit that Mt. St. Helens eruption emitted more than the entire Industrial Revolution.
    They will not discuss the Krakatoa explosion estimated at 5000 times as powerful.

    No, it is all human caused CO2.

  4. Jimmy says:

    …the scientists found that pre-eruptive mixing within the magma chamber – where older cooler magma mixed with younger hotter magma – appears to be the repeating trigger in large-scale eruptions, according to researchers.

    Ya think?

    Gore may need to sacrifice a virgin to the volcano gods. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as a liberal virgin…except possibly Helen Thomas.

  6. Burmashave says:

    Younger magma has no respect at all for older magma.

  7. Jimmy says:

    Yeah, Burma, there seems to be a ‘generation gap’ between the older and younger magmas. Who knew?

  8. Dohtimes says:

    Jimmy has erupted a time or ten when mixing with hot young magma, but thank goodness he has so far kept that off the internets. But remember Jimmy, if you erupt like that in Italy, warn your partner it’s coming because if she feels the earth move you could wind up in jail.

  9. Jimmy says:

    Yeah, Doh, and some here might not know that the Italians actually prosecuted that seismologist for NOT warning them about a devastating mixing event!

  10. Ogrrre says:

    Jimmy, I think the seismologists were prosecuted for not inviting the prosecutors to a mixing event.
