Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Eyjafjallajökull Volcano: NO Immediate Plan to Cease Activity

Eyjafjallajökull continues to erupt with no major changes detected in its  activity.  There is no sign that the volcano could cease activity any time soon: IMO

The Plume is currently reaching a maximum height of about 6,000m (20,000) a.s.l., IMO report said.


This natural-color image of the ongoing eruption was acquired by MODIS aboard NASA’s Terra satellite at 12:15 p.m. local time. Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull Volcano continues to erupt a thick plume of ash. On May 11, 2010, the ash was streaming almost directly south, visibly extending at least 860 kilometers (530 miles) from Eyjafjallajökull. The ash clouds forced the closure of some Spanish and Moroccan airports. Image and Caption: NASA [Edited for brevity.] Click image to enlarge. Download large image (2 MB, JPEG)
