The video shows Iceland Eyjafjallajökull Volcano, where you can see tourist onlookers.

The earth is awake, according to Volcano Discovery, 35 volcanoes are either currently erupting right now or just recently erupted all over the world. Something in the Earth is causing magma to be pushed up in a number of volcanoes around the world. It looks like we are not the only ones to bleed red.

“This is a kind of “climate change” that everyone can agree on. It is well known that volcanic eruptions can substantially lower global temperatures. In fact, some global warming theorists are already blaming increased volcanic activity for why temperatures have not been rising in recent years

In the last decade, the amount of volcanic aerosol in the stratosphere has increased, so more sunlight is being reflected back into space,” said lead author Benjamin Santer, climate scientist at Laurence Livermore National Laboratory, in a press release. “This has created a natural cooling of the planet and has partly offset the increase in surface and atmospheric temperatures due to human influence.” Source: www.activistpost.com

One of the latest eruptions was Mount Etna. On February 27, 2017, the active volcano, located on the Eastern coast of Sicily, Italy, erupted. The volcano stands tall at 3,329 metres, representing the largest active volcano in all of Europe.

Barren Islands volcano, India’s only active volcano, recently became active again after being dormant for the past 150 years. It erupted for four hours in January 2017.

 

In Feb, Indonesia’s Mount Sinabung in north Sumatra province erupted seven times over the course of a single day. Tourists and locals in the area are wearing eye, mouth, and face masks in order to prevent direct exposure to the volcanic ash, and thousands of villagers were displaced. At the time of the eruption, Mount Sinabung represented the tenth volcanic eruption over the course of a week.

EYJAFJALLAJÖKULL, ICELAND – Video

In 2010, this volcanot exploded and after sending ash miles into the sky, it disrupting flight traffic all across Europe. A two-and-a-half-hour drive from Reykjavik. If you have the stamina and the strength you can hike across glaciers and lava formations up a steep ascent to the 5,500-foot summit. Eyjafjallajökull, a glacier that covers the volcano. If you would like a view but can’t deal with all the strenuous activity you can always settle for a jeep tour that may be a bit more comfortable and relaxing.

KILAUEA, HAWAII

An incredible sight to see in the evening, this volcano has been active since 1983. Inside the Kilauea caldera hides the rim of Halemaumau crater with a lake of hot liquid lava. You cab view this magnificent sight by helicopter or you can hike and explore the trails in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

WHAKAARI, NEW ZEALAND (White Island)

While many people visit Whakaari – it can be a hazardous place where conditions quickly change. People visiting the island do so at their own risk.
Landing on the island may only be done with one of the licensed operators to Whakaari or with the express written permission of the owner. The licensed tour operators will cruise to the volcano’s walls, where you can get close to volcanic streams, streaks of yellow and orange streaks of sulfur and bubbling mud.

“The Earth’s outer crust is made up of a series of tectonic plates that move over the surface of the planet. In areas where the plates come together, sometimes volcanoes will form. Volcanoes can also form in the middle of a plate, where magma rises upward until it erupts on the sea floor, at what is called a “hot spot.”

The Hawaiian Islands were formed by such a hot spot occurring in the middle of the Pacific Plate. While the hot spot itself is fixed, the plate is moving. So, as the plate moved over the hot spot, the string of islands that make up the Hawaiian Island chain were formed.

The Hawaiian Islands form an archipelago that extends over a vast area of the North Pacific Ocean. The archipelago is made up of 132 islands, atolls, reefs, shallow banks, shoals, and seamounts stretching over 1,500 miles from the island of Hawaii in the southeast to Kure Atoll in the northwest.” http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/hawaii.html
