Increased vulcanism and has been associated with a cooler earth, often in combination in fewer sunspots. There have been some reported connections beteen activity on the sun and earth quakes on the sun, but proof is limited. Now, we may be living thought one of Mother Natures experiments in climate change.
Ice Age Now has the story on the Cordón Caulle volanoe, including some stunning video of the erruption.
The volcanic complex Cordón Caulle erupted on Saturday in southern Chile, causing the evacuation of thousands of people in surrounding areas.
A column of steam and ash reached more than ten miles high and then headed for Argentina as an eerie lightning show danced through the ash clouds overnight.
Authorities initially said the Puyehue volcano was involved, but later said the eruption was taking place about 2½ miles (4 km) from that peak.
A rift more than 6 miles (10 km) long and 3 miles (5 km) across was torn in the earth's crust, officials said Saturday night.

If this eruption continues with such intensity for a long time, which is virtually unpredictable, it could force temperatures lower this winter in the Southern Hemisphere according to experts.
We are currently being bombarded by a proton burst also suggests there could be other major quakes and eruptions today, stay tuned and lets see what Mother Nature may have in store for us,especially if we reach 10MeV.
