Title: Anyone else read about this?
Post by: ronnyd on 12 October 2017, 22:08:56
Went on AOL to check my e-mails and a headline on their news site reports that the the Cumbre Vieja volcano on La Palma in the Canary Islands is sending out small tremors, been about 40 so far around 2.5 on the Richter scale. We all know how dodgy AOL and Huff Post are for their scaremongering. If it does go up big style then it could be very interesting to say the least. It was the subject of a documentary on the Beeb a while ago and if it collapses into the sea it would trigger a huge tsunami. Sorry i can,t do a link.

Lots of stuff doing the rounds in the redtop rags .. most of it scaremongering.. :(

For some serious study ..

This is something to watch as you are right, seismologists have been monitoring this one for some time as an enormous fault runs throughone side of the island and could suddenly collapse into the sea causing a huge  tsunami to travel across to the Eastern seaboard of the USA and then travel up to Western Europe, even affecting the South West of England.  If it happens as they fear it will eventually, it will cause the type of disaster not seen before in modern USA or Europe.

Jolly unreasonable of the Earth to threaten major volcanic eruptions. ::) ::) ::) The climate guessing models will cope even less. ;D ;D ;D

This was the subject of a BBC documentary a few years back. Very interesting indeed. I donít recall anything about the tsunami reaching back upto Western Europe though.

I saw an article about this in the Daily Mail a few years ago. Must be true then!  ;D

Yes, in the documentary and still being said, the water surge of this event, if at the force predicted, will first send the tsunami to the Eastern seaboard of the US, causing a massive inundation of water into places like New York, then rebound and spread out travelling North up the Atlantic to hit Ireland and the South West of England. It was said that because the English Channel is a shallow waterway and the tsunami would not have any any major effect on it we in the rest of England and Scotland can keep our boats dry!   ::) ::)  ;)

I would also add that the Yellowstone National Park super volcano must never be forgotten as it is constantly building up to the next mind blowing, earth shattering eruption, maybe in the next few decades.

So, one way or another we are all doomed.....................doomed, doomed, I say!! ;)

I'm sure the tree huggers will somehow make out its all those Chelsea tractors causing it.

Nope, global climate warming has nothing to do with these threats ;D ;)

Watching Countryfile this evening and they did a piece, that they had shown before, on Dunwich on the Suffolk coast. The majority of the town was lost to the sea in a series of major storms about 800 years ago. Don,t think that was down to man made climate change. :D

Weather is highly volatile, which is why there is so much variance from year to year and quite large changes in climate over any long-term period.

Ice cores show this is the 5th high temperature, high CO2 event in the last 400,000 years, some with higher peaks than the current one, but none caused the doomsday point of no return thermal runaway.

Fig 3. 800,000 ice core chart on the British Antarctic Survey website is the one to look at.

Yes, the Great Storm of 1287 -  then there was the Great Storm of 1987  - then the Great Storm of 2017, albeit not in the UK, but then the pending Irish Great Storm of 2017:  note the pattern.

3 and seven are my "magic" numbers, 3 being good for me, 7 being bad, so I am watching this interesting (completely non-scientific and probably completely co-incidental) mathematical sequence, which you can often find in history. No doubt mathematicians will give me all kinds of logical reasons for these! ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;)

.....and to further show the significance of UK weather and the dates containing 3 or 7 over the last 800 years:

1287 The Great Storm

1703 The Great Tempest

1947 The Big Snow

1953 Storm of the Century

1963 The Big Freeze

1987 The Great Storm

2003  The hottest day ever in this year

Now there are always exceptions......... :D ;)

Greenland was once, well, err, Green.  But the do-gooders have tried blaming that on human intervention. Must have been all those dark ages people in their Range Rovers ;D

Now its turning back to its previous green state (slowly), that will be down to the Eskimos and their Range Rovers.
