Mt. Edgecumb across Sitka Sound…

in Alaska. The Tlingit people called the sacred mountain, L’ux, which meant ‘to flash’. Spanish explorer Bodega and English explorer named the mountain Mount de San Jacinto and Mount Edgecumbe. Explorer Vancouver repeated the name in his records and the name stayed.

Iceland’s Bardarbunga Volcano Eruption Likely

Bardarbunga Volcano Concerns

“I read that the Bárdarbunga volcano in Iceland is considered restless, what does this mean?

Well, it simply means that it is showing some signs that it might be moving towards a future eruption. In the case of Bárdarbunga we are talking about earthquakes that are deep enough to be of magmatic origin, we also see GPS motion indicating that magma could be moving into the system, and on occasion we see magmatic tremor. For these reasons it has been called “restless”. The reason why Bárdarbunga is not classified as Active is that we do not really know how she behaves before an eruption. This is because the last eruption started in December 1902 and ended in June 1903…” Bardarbunga Info & More

Hole In The Rock (Nature’s, Man’s or Faery’s Drill Bit?)

An almost perfect hole bored down into a river rock. DReed

I am always fascinated by the unique shapes found in nature off the beaten path. Was this hole caused by man in some logging or mining operation along this remote stretch of stream? Was it a result of  volcanic activity or some erosional influence when the rock was vulnerable? Some might even think there is some underworld/other world influence here…a window toward faeries. Above is a hole in a rock in a remote spot along a stream. It captures the imagination for long enough to snap a photo.

Fastest Growing Glacier Mt. St. Helens (huh?) Balance Please.

Historically, the more active volcano’s are…the colder the temps become. “The well shaded north-facing crater at Mt. St. Helens, which formed during the eruption of 1980, has accumulated snow steadily since 1982-83, forming the newest and fastest growing glacier in Washington. Between 1982 and 1988, roughly 3.33 million m3/yr of snow fell in the crater, and by late 1998, the glacier had a total volume of ~71,000,000 m3 of ice.”  http://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2002CD/finalprogram/abstract_33712.htm

Volcanic Activity & Temps

Volcanic Activity & Temps

liesHuh? If the hysteria and religious fervor were not so pronounced (worse than any Southern Baptist…sorry Baptists), we could perhaps have an intelligent discussion about the realities of this complex topic. But, we can’t slow down. Every thing is a crisis…a hype moment…the world is ending from every angle it seems. And, a charlatan snake oil salesman is near to play upon the hype. Wonder what the truth really might be? Cameras on shrinking glaciers, yet other glaciers grow around the world. Do we pick our convenient evidence and ignore contradictory evidence? Too much money at stake now in this ‘green’ hysteria. Scary hysteria, I say. That hysteria is as scary as that glassy eyed, cultish look of any Charles Manson follower or Southern Snake Charming Fundamentalist (sorry snake charmers). Read about the global warming heretic Freeman Dyson…unless your intellect surpasses his???

Lighten Up, You Devout Believers. I am not Denying (Heaven Forbid)…Just Calling for a Balanced Study of Cause & Effect and Course of Action that does not promote a loss of freedoms, liberty (enough of that going on right now), create  World-Planet anything or follow wrong headed bozos like Al Gore…that’s all.
