Scientists warn of a imminent volcanic disaster

Most dangerous volcano on the planet, says scientist.

15 Oct 2020 – The largest lava lake in the world, at the mouth of the Nyiragongo volcano, is growing at an alarming rate, scientists warn. (Located in Democratic Republic of Congo.)

The lake is calculated to reach a critical point in the next four years, reports Express. However, this is an optimistic scenario. According to volcanologist Dario Tedesco, if an earthquake occurs (and that has happened before), lava flows can seep out of Nyiragongo much earlier. Tedesco is sure that all these characteristics make the African volcano the most dangerous on the planet.

Tedesco has watched Nyiragongo for almost 30 years. It is one of the most active volcanoes in Africa. Its opening is 2 km (1.2 miles) in diameter, with a depth of about 250 m (820 ft). Liquid lava is constantly boiling in the crater. In the event of an eruption, the molten rock can fall on the surrounding settlements at a speed of up to 100 km/h (60 mph).

The last time this happened, in 2002, some 250 people died and about 20 percent of the buildings in the neighboring city of Goma were destroyed.

  1. I wonder how much CO2 would be emitted if that African volcano erupted?
    If it threw too much dust into the atmosphere, it would also effect sunshine levels and have a global effect.
    Plus it would be extremely detrimental to aircraft.

  2. “Most dangerous volcano on the planet”
    How is it dangerous ?
    The article doesn’t make that clear.
    I’d say it’s insignificant compared with the volcanoes in Iceland.
    Previous eruptions there released so much hydrogen sulphide that people living in Western Scotland were gassed to death by the fumes.

  3. The volcano is dangerous for many reasons.
    First of all it has some of the hottest and fastest lava on earth.
    Secondly CO2 emissions down slope fill hollows where people work, travel and play creating a suffocation hazard with CO2 concentrations as high as 60% . 15% kills.
    Thirdly the Great lake near by is charged up with CO2 and possibly methane and given the right kind of disturbance like a landslide or quake and you can have a degassing event that could kill the city of Goma which is right beside the lake and down slope from the volcano.
    Who was the genius who approved that set up for a disaster?

  4. OH MY VOLCANO!!!
    Where they gonna go when the volcano blow?

    Nahum 1:5-6 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

    The word Pyramid is said to be derived from the Greek, ‘Piramis’ and ‘Piramidos’, translatable as ‘Fire in The Middle’. This concept of ‘fire in the middle’ seems strange, but could the symbolism in resemblance between an erupting volcanic mountain and a pyramid be a valid supposition?
    WAS GOD A VOLCANO? YES! GOD – ALLAH WAS A VOLCANO-VOLCANIC ACTIVITY!!!

    Cruelty and the abuse of power have existed throughout human history, but concentration camps have not. They are little more than a century old. [think Boer War in S.A., the Wellcome Trust and Big Pharma] The earliest began as wartime measures, but on numerous occasions since then they have become lasting features. They are a product of technologically advanced societies with sophisticated legal and political systems and have been made possible by a range of modern inventions. Military technologies such as automatic weapons or barbed wire made it easier for small groups of officials to hold much larger groups of people captive. Advanced bureaucracy and surveillance techniques enabled states to watch, count and categorise civilians in ways they couldn’t have done in earlier eras.

    Doug Ford government won’t deny COVID-19 quarantine camps are coming to Ontario By David Menzies | October 09
    https://www.rebelnews.com/doug_ford_government_wont_deny_covid19_quarantine_camps_are_coming_to_ontario

    Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t possibly get any weirder…
    Get this: Coronavirus internment camps on Canadian soil. Sounds impossible, but believe it or not, there’s a federal request for proposals (RFP) to construct them.
    So if their intended existence is clear as day, the question then becomes: just who is destined to reside in these camps?
    Ontario MPP Randy Hillier (Lamarck-Frontenac-Kingston) raised this issue during question period in the Ontario legislature a few days ago. He received strange, evasive answers, and some of his questions were just flat-out ignored. We have the video to prove it.
    Just what are Justin Trudeau’s Liberals up to this time? And why is the Doug Ford Progressive Conservative government so reluctant to offer answers?
    Surely the provinces and territories were consulted on such a massive undertaking… right?
    The lack of answers aren’t just concerning, they’re disturbing. The hallmark of any democracy [there is no democracy] is transparency and the only thing crystal clear about this story is that everything is still firmly in the shadows.

    I used to practice as member of an Air Cadet precision marching drill team back in the early 70’s in one of the old Canadian internment camps #132 [the complex of buildings were called the The Armory] in Medicine Hat, AB. Many of these old buildings are still around and used to make up a bunch of the old Stampede Fairgrounds buildings as well.

    I represent a company that has a system capable of tracking cellulars. in real time.
    Wave Guard’s system absolute advantages

    1. Wave Guard’s solution covers all mobiles and all cellular generations, regardless of type of technology being used.
    This is important because many people still do not have smartphones (1/3 of US population, for example) also foreign workers and/or criminal agents prefer to stick to the old simple phones, and they are as exposed to Corona as everyone else.
    It is also important because it covers people owning smartphones who turned off (for their own reasons) their location services (for their own reasons), by this making GPS based location irrelevant.

    2. There is NO need to install any specific app – Wave Guard monitors the radio activity of the device, even on an idle state (i.e-no active calls or texting).

    3. Wave Guard’s system monitors concurrently over 100 million of subscribers. This is a proven capability, active with our existing customers for several years.
    All other systems were planned to monitor a couple of hundred (or a low 4 digit numbers) of subscribers. Scaling up is not trivial, we have a proven high capacity coverage capability.

    4. Wave Guard’s query mechanism (rule engine) provides the base for the two main acute needs :
    • Monitoring of quarantined persons
    • Reconstruction of routes, Meetings and proximity of infected people so that those who were in touch can be isolated and later on treated.
    5. Our technology has unique BIG Data Analytics, with automatic Alert to be able to monitor and identify geographical changes of all monitored despite need to follow 100,000 or 1,000,000 people simultaneously.

    There will be, according to all forecasts, a second wave in the near future. Those who will prepare themselves will be better apt to mitigate it.
    This constant threat makes it critical for Government to have our geo tracking and big data analytics as Infrastructure for Corona at present and future pandemic threats from now on. It will save lives and keep the economy damage minimal. This is a very low budget VS the $192 million that the Prime Minister offered on TV. I have contacted The PM Office, Minister Hadju, Minister Baines, DR. Tam, CTV News, CSIS, PWGSC, etc. Most of them say we will get back to you. Even the company mentioned by the PM responded by email ” NOT INTERESTED” Of course if you offer a system that can save $180 Million then the Government of Canada should wake up rather than reinventing the wheel. I have 3 power points available. 1) Informative, 2) Technical, 3) Financial, the last one only for Government of Canada Agencies / Departments.

    China and the World in the New Era 2019-09-28

    China believes that a fair judgment should be made on each issue on its own merits. We will promote peace talks, maintain stability, prevent disorder, exhibit no partiality, seek no selfish gains, and play a constructive role in ensuring regional and international peace and tranquility.

    6. Taking a lead in reforming and developing the global governance system

    It is the common aspiration of countries around the world to make global governance fairer and more equitable, and fulfill the principles of extensive consultation, joint contribution and shared benefits. As a major and responsible country, China will continue to enjoy its rights in balance with fulfilling its obligations, taking account of both its requirements of the world and the international community’s expectations for China. We will take an active part in reforming and developing the global governance system. As a participant in, builder of, and contributor to that system, China hopes to help the system move with the times through innovation and improvement, rather than reinvent the wheel.
