This is another great video by David Dubyne. This is probably one of the most interesting videos that I've seen him put out.
He is visiting a volcano in Taiwan, checks out their monitoring equipment data, explores the mountain. Really informative.
The composition of the gasses being emitted from the steam vents changed during both the Japan and Ecuador quakes. Also he noted temperature spikes
at the location during those events. It only adds to the interconnectedness of these climatic events. It is more evidence of what is going on.
It would be interesting to find this data for other active volcanoes around the planet during the same time frames. ETA, besides the obvious
eruptions of Aso, Popo, and the others I can't recall the name of. I am more interested in the restless sleepers such as this one.
Hope you guys check it out.

There has been a chill in the air for some time and I mentioned the possibility of a mini ice age to my neighbour over a few beers and he gave me on
elf his quizzical looks but maybe who knows because this chill seems different its perm eating everything.
People are going to look at you funny because we've just had a very strong El Nino. Things are warm right now as a consequence, but because people
have no sense of perspective, they forget that we do have events like it every decade to decade and a half or so; the last one was 17 years ago.
Strong El Ninos pump a lot of heat into the atmosphere. The question is ... does the heat stay or does it go back down?
We'll know if a similarly strong La Nina crops up which tends to have a reversing effect on what El Nino does.
And, of course, a strong volcanic eruption erases all of it in a matter of hours to days.
Then there is the matter of the sun to consider. The sun remains quiet, and may continue to do so for quite some time.
This El Nino is fizzling particularly quickly from what I've heard and read. I saw projections this morning that are calling for cooler than average
climate in my area for this year. I'm sure that all of it will prove to be interesting.
I'm a bit of a weather junky though. The stranger it gets, the more I like it.
