Global warming is closer then to think..another factor we sometimes forget about that causes global warming is volcanoes..and ring of fire (volcanoe
area) the volcanoes are becoming active
Recently, fifteen out of eighteen major Pacific Rim and continental US volcanos have started awakening; they are heating up and some of them are now
belching smoke and hot lava.
Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
The recent and general heating of volcanos around the globe is following the pattern of global warming.
The one BigBadBoy we in the US are really concerned about is Yellowstone--a hole in the ground 600 miles long and 70 miles wide.
Seismigraphs for Yellowstone show intermittant, locally-centered and continuous movement of rock masses.
Already ground temperature at Yellowstone has reached 200 degrees, trees are burning up from the bottom, and animals are fleeing the area.
USGS Historical Seismicity map for Western Montana hardly gives a clue just how active that area has become, under and near the Yellowstone Caldera.
