Volcanos

Post  pinhedz on Mon Aug 18, 2014 4:00 am

The anthropogenic global warming enthusiasts say that their models would have been correct if it wasn't for the darned volcanos.

They say the volcanos are interferring with global warming. Mad

The 1816 "year with no summer" is attributed to Krakatoa.

So watch out--Bárðarbunga (right under the Vatnajökull) icecap, is growing restless.

Top docs say this could trigger the worst jökulhlaup since Eyjafjallajökull. affraid

OK, the alert code went down from red to orange.

But don't get complacent. affraid

Bardarbunga has breached the surface.

The naysayers said it would stay below the ice, but it appears not so.Razz

Fun fact--volcanoes are the leading cause of GLOBAL COOLING.

How ironic that people pay so much attention to a volcano in the Frozen North, while the real kooling will come from a much more awesome eruption in Papua New Guinea. affraid

Not too bad--not spewing ash or anything:

Papua New Guinea--the robot announcer lady says you are advised to stay indoors. bounce

The pinhed advises you not to expect any global warming this year.

People laughed at Bardarbunga--they said Bardarbunga was lame, that Bardarbunga didn't have "The Right Stuff." How wrong they were. bounce

Volcanos are the leading known cause of global cooling.

But what is the leading unknown cause of global cooling? I don't think I know. geek Anybody have an idea?

Papua New Guinea respond to the challenge by blowing its stack and firing off a condensation wave:

Its ironic--these things have a huge carbon footprint, but they have a net cooling effect. scratch

for a long time now volcanos have had a way of capturing the imaginations, some times for their fore-boding power and grandeur, some times for mysterious intrigue and romancing, and some times for sudden unrelenting doom, and some times to really punish the haughty hubristics. one time to illogically lower zach quinto down into the active volcano.

Iselanders like them, because there isn't a lot going on otherwise. geek

The colder fusion device in "The Star Trek Into Darkness" turned out to be the most difficult prop in the entire film to design. Many concept drawings were done during this process and plenty of discussion revolved around the appearance and functionality of the volcano-terminating device. "The challenge was to find something that looked like it could do that, make it in a suitcase size, and make it look like it was part of the Star Terky world. We went round and round," recalled Prop Master Andrew Siegel, who began work on the film after some initial illustrations of the mechanism were already created.

One central issue was how to make the imaginary cold fusion device relatable on-screen. "To start with, you have to find a case, or make a case, that looks like Spock could have grabbed it off the shelf of the Enterprise," Siegel continued. "Is it something that he put together? Obviously, Starfleet probably doesn't give you a volcano deactivation device." The next design consideration was likewise trying to make it instantly clear to the viewer what the device actually was, by the way the machine looked.

Siegel further commented, "We have the added attraction of, 'Okay, now it's going to break on impact, and Spock has to do something to fix it.' Again, the audience has to be able to relate to that and go, 'Oh, it's like when my refrigerator broke, and I stuck a wedge in the door.' As a nod to the diehard fans, one of the ways that he fixes it is by plugging his tricorder into it, which I thought was super cool." This method of repairing the cold fusion device added an additional degree of functionality to the tricorder. (Star Trek : The Magazine issue 173, pp. 78 & 80)

The illusion of rendering the volcano dormant was difficult to create. "The transition from lava to rock was the trickiest part," noted CG simulation supervisor Dan Pearson. (Cinefex, No. 134, p. 81)

(For more information, see Lava.)

Since it's Islendsk, always wear a warm coat.

That's the kicker--those folks were NOT VOLCANO HIKING.

There was no warning from any of Japan's ace seismologists. Shocked

it's like Eccles says, "in the end, we all go Volcano Hiking, whether we intend to or not."

For climate purposes, what matters is ash. This volcano doesn't seem to be blowing out very much ash (Bardarbunga, that is):
