The Earth Is Breaking Up: The Number Of Volcano Eruptions In 2010 Is More Than A Bit Alarming

November 2, 2010

Is the earth breaking up?  In 2010, volcanoes all over the world are erupting at an alarming pace.  Combined with the dramatic increase in large earthquakes that we are seeing, all of this is more than a little unsettling.  Is this just an anomaly or are we entering a time of increased seismic activity?  Are volcanoes along the "Ring of Fire" and elsewhere in the world going to erupt even more frequently as we get closer to 2012?  Nobody knows for sure, but it certainly seems like something strange is going on.  So far, most of the volcanic eruptions have been in areas that are not densely populated, but as many civilizations throughout history have learned, a significant volcanic eruption can wipe out an entire city in a single day.  In fact, there are quite a few dormant "super volcanoes" throughout the world that could literally bring about the end of the world as we know it.  Hopefully we won't have to deal with any of these "super volcanoes" for a while, but if dozens of smaller volcanoes keep erupting around the globe we are soon going to have some very serious problems on our hands.

The earth really does seem to be breaking up in 2010.  Just consider the following list of some of the major volcanic eruptions around the globe that we have seen this year....

*Indonesia's infamous Anak Krakatau volcano has come to life and is spewing ash and flaming rocks.

*Mount Merapi in Indonesia has erupted for a third time, and locals are reporting that this most recent eruption was the loudest and the strongest one yet.

*Right now there are 22 volcanoes in Indonesia that are showing increased signs of volcanic activity.

*Two major volcanoes on Russia's Siberian Kamchatka peninsula both erupted on October 28th.  The volcanoes produced ash plumes that reached heights of up to 33,000 feet, and ash clouds traveled as far as Alaska.

*A spokesperson at the Icelandic Civil Protection Department said on Monday that water now pouring from Iceland's biggest glacier could signal that a volcano underneath is about to erupt.

*Earlier this year, an eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano caused cancellations of thousands of flights in Europe because of the giant ash cloud that it produced.

*The Popocatépetl Volcano in Mexico  has been continually erupting since January 2005.

*The Philippine government insists that it is prepared for a possible eruption of the Taal volcano as it begins to show signs of life.

*Costa Rica's Arenal volcano erupted in May, spewing geysers of lava, ash and toxic gases from its crater and forcing the evacuation of the national park where it is located.

*Guatemala's Pacaya volcano, which is located 50 kilometres south of Guatemala City, surprised many when it began erupting several months ago.

*A volcano in Ecuador known as Tungurahua (The "Throat of Fire") came to life earlier this year, exploding continuously throughout one crazy night.

So is all this related to the 2012 phenomenon?

Is this evidence that we are in the end times?

Could it be that human activity is causing these eruptions somehow?

Or is all of this just an anomaly that we really shouldn't be concerned about?

    it’s seems this is very scary,but all we can do as a human being, is to ask the CREATOR…am i save? are you going to get the world….??????

    Has there been any history where volcanic eruptions were particularly high, before the onset of greenhouse gas emissions by humans?

    Fortunately I have been training my whole life for this time by playing dont step in the lava.

    I’m also happy to report that I have avoided stepping on cracks since my early childhood and that my mothers back, is in fact still intact.

    No, it’s not breaking up! It’s just another way of frightening the masses into total submission. They HAVE to get their new world order through before the end of 2012.

    Who owns this website anyway?

    @EZFlash:

    It’s been about 5-10 million years.
    However, one volcanic eruption like the Kamchatka-duo, or Eyjafjallajökull, ejects about a million times more greenhouse gases than humanity has produced in history. And that includes the real greenhouse gases like methane & water…

    Well we have no control over nature. We only speculate through research what happened to the dinosaurs. What are we going to do about it if the world is coming to an end? Nothing!

    I have often wondered what is extracting all this oil and gas doing to the stability from beneath the ground. You have got to wonder dont you think……the money hungry oil mongers are NOT going to let that become and issue!!!!!!!

    The earth is producing new crust every day. A diverging plate boundary is where new crust is made. This is were a plate seperates and lava flows up filling the gap producing more crust. As the crust is pushed out at that point two plates get smashed together somewhere else. Energy keeps building as more and more crust is made, thus pushing the plates together harder and harder. One day there is to much energy and the plates shift. Since plates are the size of countrys if not bigger this shift is violent, releasing all the built up energy, creating a earthquake. Sometimes crust is forced down into the mantal displacing alot of magma. Since the new crust gets forced into the mantal, pressure is put on the crust and this makes volcanoes erupt. Once one of these things happen it creates a domino effect. It isnt the end of the world it is just another cycle the earth goes through. And you should be happy because the volcanoes erupting now are releaving pressure from the crust so the super volcanoes on the planet wont erupt. This is just an educated guess, but being as though the world didnt end a few days ago like people said it would, i would say that going with facts is the best choice.
