Mount Sinabung volcano located in Indonesia’s Sumatra island has a current death toll of 14…
And this has been going on since September!!!
Gee wonder how many years of carbon credits are being used with this obvious unlicensed emission of pollutants? According to estimates I have read that just two days of an eruption on this scale places over SEVEN years of equivalent pollutants into the atmosphere as created by the world’s human population.
So what are to do when some say we should pay much higher energy costs as well as dozens of world and local carbon footprint taxes for man to stave off global climate change and then have nature offset years of so called progress for a multi-day burp from just one of hundreds of active volcanoes in the world?
Global climate change, sure, but in what direction???
But man’s contributions can’t be the primary source nor can man clean it up to the point it is reversible, the science is just not there for that if one folds in ocean currents, air currents, solar cycles and weather cycles then add man’s source as the only that needs adjusting.
And another one…
Just because it’s old, doesn’t mean it can’t go boom!!!
I can’t count the stupidity in this one…
Construction workers found the mine lying on the beach, according to nieuws.nl, and used the bucket of an excavator to move the old mine right along. Because Dutch excavator drivers are braver than you.
The local bomb squad decided to detonate the mine right there on the beach rather than take the risk of attempting to defuse it.P
Next time you see an old bomb from World War II, run. Run like hell. And run further than 20 feet.
