Maybe It Will Be A Natural Disaster That Does Us In?

A previously dormant South American volcano is inflating with astonishing speed, scientists have discovered.

Researchers from several U.S. universities say "Uturuncu", which rises 6,000 meters in southwest Bolivia, is blowing up like a big balloon as its magma chamber grows around 10 times faster than normal.

'It's one of the fastest uplifting volcanic areas on Earth,' Oregon State University professor, Shan de Silva, told OurAmazingPlanet.

  1. If it has 1,000 times the eruption potential of Mt. St. Helens, we can be sure that it's going to be an early winter everywhere for a few years. The Global Warming crowd is going to have to pull a 180 in order to stay off of the breadlines.
