New Canary island emerging from the sea

A brand new island is emerging from the sea just south of the Canary Island of El Hierro as an underwater volcano bubbles to the surface.

Magma has been spewing more than 60 feet (20 meters) high as the sea boils with a smell of sulphur.

Now a mere 230 feet (70 meters) from the surface, islanders are already trying to come up with an appropriate name for the new island.

The sea around the volcano is heating up and, at times, has reached as high as 95F (35C).

As I’ve said before, “Gee, I wonder what could be heating the seas?”

  1. As we are nearing an important date in the Mayan calendar, what about calling it “El Mayan”? Or even their plumed serpent god Quetzalcoatl? Maybe Tohil, their fire god?

    Or El Fuego (The Fire)?

    Who’s going to snap up the early plots to build a beach house? Guaranteed firework display every night!

  2. I’ve got it! “Mundial más cálido”! Spanish for “Global Warmer”.

    Will the last person to leave the inter-glacial please turn the lights off?
