“We knew, it was only a matter of time…“. Anthony Watts sneers at Scientific American, with a side dish of Goreophobia, for suggesting that thawing ice caps in Iceland many trigger future volcanic eruptions.
I suggest Anthony and his pseudo-geologist friends Google “isostatic rebound”. It’s not likely to be a big factor, but it’s also not just theoretical.
““Our work suggests that eventually there will be either somewhat larger eruptions or more frequent eruptions in Iceland in coming decades,” said Freysteinn Sigmundsson, a vulcanologist at the University of Iceland.”
Apparently the vulcanologists are in on the conspiracy along with the climatologists, botanists, atmospheric physicists and the statisticians. Thank goodness we have the BSes in meteorology speaking truth to power.

And thank God for John Coleman, who likes to think he’s a meteorologist, though he’s just a tv performer like a lot of tv weathermen.
On this and Goddard’s follow up post, there was someone who posted a link to the actual paper. Everyone else ignored it. They act like well-trained dogs hoping to please their master with their anti-science stance.
I wonder how they can bring themselves to use computers and the internet?
