Magma plume thermal kineticism is a sign the Earth is now moving towards the spectrum of catastrophic geological upheavel- a epochal shift that will have profound implications for all life forms on the planet.
The factual stuff is great at that site. The opinion stuff, is, well? Just opinion. And a far-fetched one at that.
Alvin, the site owner wrote a book and its a lengthy one. He appears to know what he is talking about. The homework he had to do in order to write such a book HAD to be extensive. He sees things and puts them into perspective like no other I have come in contact with. Still though....just don't know what to think.
Everyone around me is ok with conforming so I am left on the sideline being told that I am not living in reality.

Except that you know as well as all of us here do I am sure, that you are living in reality and it is they who are living in cloud cuckoo land believing everything they are told. Never conform. Never believe anything you are told until you have sufficient information to satisfy yourself that what is being said is probably correct. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand that basics of rockets sufficiently to make a judgement on how they work. Probably a bad analogy but you know what I mean.
