El Popo pops – Largest eruption since 2013 – Video

Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano erupted on Thursday, propelling a cloud of smoke, ash and steam more than a mile into the sky.

It was the volcano’s largest eruption since 2013, according to El Universal.

Popocatépetl is located about 55 miles southeast of Mexico City.

  1. It’s not going to make it any warmer, however, everyone please remember, what matters here is one extra molecule of CO2, anything else, sunspots much larger than planet Earth, etc. won’t make one iota of difference, or so the “scientists” would have us believe.

  2. 25 Nov – The Mount Agung volcano, on the Indonesian island of Bali, has erupted for a second time in less than a week, firing a column of ash 1,500 meters into the air.

    The eruption emitted a bigger ash cloud than Tuesday’s blast. It caused several airlines – including, KLM, Qantas, AirAsia, and Virgin – to cancel or rearrange flights in the region.

  3. We seem to be entering a period of increased seismic activity throughout the planet. I think that there have been some papers that link this type of activity with cooling in the past.

  4. MR166– Actually seismic (earthquake) activity is down this year– at least in the Richter7 or greater category. The global average is 15 per year, but only 7 so far in 2017.

    Chart # of earthquakes & strengths by year 1970-2012

    Wikipedia has a list of 2017 earthquakes w strengths.

    I don’t know if there’s been an increase in volcanic activity. I haven’t seen any FACTUAL as opposed to emotional report that shows an increase. Do you know of one? If you do, please let us know.

  5. MR166 — You got me curious as to whether there’s an increase in global volcanic eruptions. Here’s what I found out: There are two different things to measure:
    –The number of active volcanoes each year, including about a dozen that erupt every year.
    https://www.metabunk.org/debunked-significant-increase Chart shows # of active volcanoes per year is unchanged 1960-2000, at 50-70, w an average of about 58 active volcanoes per year. (eruptions are at 60-80 due to multiple eruptions by same volcanoes.)

    –GVP, the Smithsonian, reports new eruptions or changed conditions in an existing eruption. This is a different set of numbers, and most sensationalist reporting compares the two. Eg: “This year’s active volcanoes is greater than last year’s new ones.” Except they don’t make it clear what they’re comparing.

    Reported eruptions of .1 cubic km or more of tephra, the fragmental products of explosive eruptions, have been within the same range 1790 to 1990. (per the same link)

    But what about 1990 to the present? Can anyone refer me to a good link?

  6. I like the name because clearly the mountain went “Pop!” in the same way a cork flies off a bottle of champagne LOL.

  7. Penelope here in the US a lot of mini quakes have been occurring in the western half of the nation. Rightly or wrongly I was including volcanic activity in thoughts when posting.
