My article yesterday: Seven Volcanoes In Six Different Countries All Start Erupting Within Hours Of Each Other has raised a great deal of interest. Both at The Daily Sheeple and on other sites who have kindly republished it, many readers have asked questions. So, I’m going to have a go at answering some of them.

This is bulls*%t, the volcanoes are just doing what volcanoes do.

It’s not bullshit, but you are correct that it’s what volcanoes do. Volcanoes are vents, when the pressure builds up the volcanoes release a mixture of steam and gases, and sometimes rocks and molten rock, lava, to relieve the pressure build up.

According to the Smithsonian Institute there are some 1511 active volcanoes on the planet. Active is defined as a volcano that has erupted at some point during the last 10,000 years.

The Smithsonian states that on average there are 60 eruptions a year, but that between 45 and 75 would be considered within normal parameters. Today, at this moment 34 volcanoes are actively erupting. The Smithsonian state that up to 20 volcanoes erupting on a given day would be within the normal parameters.
