I read this novel (Zero Hour by Benjamin Miller). It wasn't that great. How about we put the volcano under Crimea? It would solve a political dispute and also provide cheap geothermal power to substitute for Russian gas.
 
2014-05-12 10:56:43 AM
So, is this a solution to climate change? :O

There's another name for melted ice cap

And since it's Daily Fail reporting, I can conclude that said supervolcano doesn't exist.
 
2014-05-12 11:01:19 AM
If I had to put a supervolcano anywhere, Antarctica would be the place.

/doesn't really want a supervolcano anywhere.
 
2014-05-12 11:01:55 AM
So does this mean the area isn't as "sensitive to global warming" as scientists thought and that the area is just reacting to the effects of the volcano?

When the ice melts it will put out the fire.
 
2014-05-12 11:05:49 AM
Not to worry, the EPA will regulate that volcano into non-existence...

The Daily Fail didn't say anything about this being a super-volcano, Subby. So maybe you should apply for a reporter's job there. They can obviously use your hyperbole.

At least this volcano doesn't have greedy asshole fracking all around it (yet).

Is that a new type of fracking I haven't heard of? It sounds...intrusive.

It's used for natural gas.

I am assuming this is evidence that global warming isn't man-made.  At least until the climate-change community can figure out a way to pin supervolcano activity on man, too.

I don't know about a supervolcano, but we could use one or two Pinatubo-sized eruptions to up the albedo a little bit.
Plus, the sunsets were really pretty after it erupted the last time.

No, it's evidence that there is a volcano under the ice in Antarctica.
Assuming that this is evidence that global warming is natural would be like blaming the existence of Yellowstone for it being hot in Tuscon, AZ.

Because when the sun sets, it lands just outside Flagstaff.  It cools as it sets, so the area is still habitable, but it's hot enough to turn the rocks permanently red.

You say the sun as if it's not a new sun that rises every morning. They all land just outside Flagstaff. The suns are the red rocks.

Actually temperature is a fairly huge factor. Just not as big a factor as precipitation. That doesn't mean it has to be hot to be a desert, only that temperature is an important part of the whole process.

Whether or not a place is a desert is based on a combination of temperature and precipitation.  For example, the taiga forests of the far northern latitudes receive less precipitation than Arizona, but since the climate is so cold, very little of that precipitation evaporates before the trees can absorb it.
