Fourteen earthquakes have occurred below Iceland's Mýrdalsjökull glacier during the past 48 hours - one within the last few hours. Katla Volcano lies beneath the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. Katla Volcano usually erupts every century, says Iceland's President Olafur Grimsson. and the last eruption was in 1918. "The time for Katla to erupt is coming close."
Every time Katla has erupted in human history the human race has suffered. Now, with our dependence on air travel to transport food and people for business and tourism the impact will be significant in the short term. Long term the shortening of the growing season will impact the global food supply. The northern grain growing regions in the US, Canada and Russia will be unable to produce the surpluses that have fed hungry mouths around the world. Some regions will shift southward, but will not be enough to feed the hungry.
And the useful idiots are worried about heat waves in in 2020 and 2029. They will be praying for those head waves before this is over. The eruption of Katla will become a game changing event, for which we are unprepared, yet history has left us a message that we are ignoring. It is not if, but when Katla will erupt and in the past the consequences have been severe.
