First of all, the premise for the volcanic disaster is not from the eruptions of volcanoes, but from large fissures broken open in the techtonic
plates of the earths crust. The global killer scenario is obscured in the report because it starts off as if volcanic eruption is the killer event,
but then goes on to compare it to the fissure eruptions from 250 million years ago. The destruction is a life killer, not a planet killer. The life
killing aspect is the 100s and 1000s of miles of lava spewing up from the core combined with the toxic gases and ash being sprayed into the
The lava melts off everything on the surface, except of course the actual surface itself. The ash and gas makes the air toxic and dark. Sunlight is
blocked out, the ozone layer becomes more damaged, life runs out of food in stages until everything is dead. Solar radiation turns the land into a
dust bowl and the seas into poison.
Of course, the earth still spins and runs round the sun. The moon still orbits and has her way with the tides.
In a few thousand years, some microbe that had been dormant deep in the earth's crust or at the bottom of the abyss slowly makes its way to the
surface. One day, it crawls out of the water and eventually it will grow legs. It creates fire, weapons, buildings, computers and bombs. In a
million years, it too will see its own demise and blame global warming for the entire thing.
