This is a good find and really interesting. I am shocked that 2011 is starting off like this. First with thousands of birds dying in like four different states and now a massive volcano is erupting. I wonder whats next on Mother Nature's plan to kill the human race.

As much as I would like to think that any cataclysmic event wont happen, there is too much going on to ignore. The internet has been around for a decade. If all that is going on is "normal" it would not be so new in recent times. Media has been around much much longer, and this type of reporting would have been done many times before. I do feel sorry for naysayers. They will be the least prepared, and the first to die. Like I said before, I am hoping nothing does happen, but Im going to be prepared just in case, for my familys sake, you all owe it to yours to be prepared none the less. If it is something that is beyond all control, then so be it, but I am not going out without a fight.

I was watching taupo a few months ago on RSOE and it appeared to be having earthquakes every 15 days at creepily regular intervals. RSOE doesn't want to show search results for it now so !?! who knows.
Hope taupo don't go up... it covered our entire coutry with meters of ash and surrounding nations with less! You can see it driving around when you look at the road cuttings, and it's not just one time period either :x For the curious, it's that space visible lake in the middle of the north island...
