What If The Volcano Doesn’t Stop?

with 5 comments

It might start by ruining the holidays of the wealthy.  Then it might be inconvenient for business if executives can’t get to their high powered meetings.  The supply of out of season fruit and vegetables from Kenya would disappear.

The eruption might not stop for days, weeks, even months or years.  It might get worse.  See here for what happened 227 years ago when a volcano in Iceland erupted and be afraid, be very afraid!

The Day After Yesterday

That would shock us all out of our comfortable little lives wouldn’t it?  We wouldn’t all be so concerned about the Leaders TV debate then would we?

Some might say we are overdue, maybe even deserve a catastrophe on Planet Earth.

Who knows?

This could be the start of it.

  3. Good things would come out of the volcano not stopping like us eating local produce and helping local farms and less plane travel reducing the carbon footprint (granted I’m not sure how the volcano effects the environment).

    Man can do amazing things but nature always has a way of humbling us.

  4. yes, all very well, but what if my husband is stuck in Vegas and can’t get home to Scotland to see his two little kids? It’s not just affecting wealthy holiday types & business men, it’s affecting me, the little mummy and her two little kids!!!!

    • I can only try to imagine how you feel. I’m glad I’m not in your shoes or your husband’s. Even if this thing is going to carry on, there will be intervals and opportunities for flights to get through. I wish you all the best.
