    I was hiking in Iceland two years ago and walked over lava fields that were still hot from the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajökull. While back then the biggest problem had been the airplane traffic chaos over Europe this can be much worse now.

    Bárðarbunga is the “big sister” of the volcano Laki, whose 1783-84 eruption released poisonous gases that killed the majority of Iceland’s livestock, a quarter of the population of Iceland, and six million people worldwide – as well as screwing with global weather patterns to the point that the Mississippi River froze at New Orleans and ice floes formed in the Gulf of Mexico. If Bárðarbunga does erupt, and in a manner similar to the 1783-84 eruption of Laki, things will not be good.

    At the time of writing a small volcanic eruption has already started.

    Thank Jay for posting this. If it erupts may change the global weather to a colder patterns. We have to watch to see what happens.
