16 April 2021 – “The eruption may be a shield volcano eruption, which may last for several years,” says this video from Epic Storm. “It is visible from the suburbs of the capital city of Reykjavík and has attracted a large number of visitors. However, high levels of volcanic gases such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide make parts of the area inaccessible.”
Hmmmm. Did you catch that? Some areas around the volcano are inaccessible due to “high levels of volcanic gases such carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.”
Do you suppose it’s possible that this and other volcanoes now erupting around the world may also be contributing to today’s risings CO2 levels?
And when you understand that Iceland is an extremely small fraction of the 10,000-mile-long Mid-Atlantic Ridge – which is comprised almost entirely of huge underwater volcanoes (some of which are miles tall) – do you suppose it’s possible that underwater volcanoes could be contributing to ocean warming?
Scientists have no idea how many underwater volcanoes may be hiding beneath the briny waters, but it appears that there are well over three million. (A total of 3,477,403 submarine volcanoes may exist worldwide, of which 139,096 are active.)
And here’s a video showing the the moment when the crater collapsed:
Now here’s a live feed:
Notice that you can now see what appear to be at least five active cones.
