Which is it? Time Mag. goes both ways on volcanoes! TIME Mag.: ‘Climate Change Leads to Volcanoes (Really)’ – Rebuttal: Study: Volcanoes ARE cooling Earth – So AGW causes more volcanoes which cool the Earth?!

http://time.com/3687893/volcanoes-climate-change/ If you enjoyed that, there’s more of the same coming. At the current pace, the researchers predict, the uplift rate in parts of Iceland will rise to 15.7 in (40 mm) per year by the middle of the next decade, liberating more calderas and leading to one Eyjafjallajökull-scale blow every seven years. The Earth, we are learning yet again, demands respect. Mess with it and there’s no end to the problems you create. If you enjoyed that, there’s more of the same coming.

The Earth, we are learning yet again, demands respect. Mess with it and there’s no end to the problems you create. Perhaps anticipating the climate change deniers’ uncanny ability to put two and two together and come up with five, the researchers took pains to point out that no, it’s not the very fact that Icelandic ice sits above hot magma deposits that’s causing the glacial melting. The magma’s always been there; it’s the rising global temperature that’s new. At best, only 5% of the accelerated melting is geological in origin.
