2012 Doomsday Predictions: Volcanic Eruptions
Nostradamus is said to have predicted a number of ways the world could end â€“ or at least threat the majority of the earthâ€™s population. Natural disasters come high on top of the list and with the increasing number of earthquakes, floods and hurricanes in recent times, should we really have cause for concern?
Add to the list of natural disasters the threat of volcanic eruptions and the end of days prophecies seem more real than ever. There has been a spate of volcanic eruptions spitting out fire, fumes and plumes of ash already this year; many of which have barely been reported in the mainstream media. Could Nostradamus be forewarning us to take precautionary measures?
Â Century 1 Quatrain 87
Earthshaking fire from the center of the earth, will cause tremors around the New City. Two great rocks will war for a long time, then Arethusa will redden a new river.
In 2011, there has been no fewer than a dozen volcanoes the length and breadth of the world showing increased signs of seismic activity. How big a threat are they to our survival?
The latest explosion to occur was in Iceland just last week on March 22nd 2011. The most active volcano in Iceland, grimsvotn sent plumes of ash into the air and has threatened to halt Europeâ€™s international air travel just as her sister cone, Eyjafjallaokull did a little over a year ago. Volcanists had feared, and still fear, neighbouring Katla causes the greatest threat as it usually erupts every 80 years. This last major eruption was in 1918.
Shinmoedeke and Kirishima, Japan
Shinmoedeke in the Kirishima range of Japan is on a level three alert having exploded twice already this year, once on the 28th January 2011 and again on 13th March 2011. The eruption came just two days after the double disaster of earthquake and tsunami claimed the lives of over 10,000 victims. It could be that the earthquake could have triggered off the Shinmoedeke as on the same day in the same mountain range, Kirishima also sent 4km of ash plume over the Pacific Ocean.
Scientists have reported the opening a new vent in Kilauea, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. On 5th March the volcano vomited 20 meters of lava into the air and caused one of its cones to collapse. The volcano has been in constant eruption since 1983 and is currently under 24-hour surveillance.
Shiveluch, Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia
On 5th May 2011, the eruption of the Shiveluch volcano in the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia lasted for half an hour. The strong seismic event caused the rock to spew ash from the crater and molten lava spilled down the slopes. Shiveluch is one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka.
Etna, Sicily near Italy
Mount Etna, Europeâ€™s tallest and most active volcano erupted for over an hour on 12th January 2011. The 3,329 metre (10,922-feet) volcano erupted lit up the Sicilian sky and providing amazing scenery for the village of Milo, just 12 kilometres away.
Etna is Europe’s most active volcano and has seen increased activity since the turn of the year.
Fuego is one of Central America’s most active volcanoes and regularly throws fountains of lava into the air in intense moments of seismic activity producing tall plumes of ash and dangerous pyroclastic flows. Eruptions have been ongoing since 2002, but there has not been any major incident since 1974.
Tengger Caldera, Java
On 23 January 2011, it was reported the Tengger Caldera in Java has be spewing volcanic ash and incandescent material since 19 December 2010. Eruptions continued and on 21 January 2011 a thin veil of ash fell in nearby villages. The impact of the fallout resulted in disruption of normal activities.
Century 2 Quatrain 17
Mount Aventine will be seen to burn at night:
The sky very suddenly dark in Flanders:
When the monarch will chase his nephew,
Then Church people will commit scandals.
Incidents of volcanic eruptions and fallouts are more frequent than is reported in mainstream newspapers. Having said that, most active volcanoes have been lively for years without causing serious threat, and most will not cause wide scale damage.
Scientists however, tell us that if Super Volcanoes like Yellowstone Park erupt, then the planet could be in serious trouble. Only a handful exists, and little is known about them, though that doesnÂ´t stop scientists fearing the worst. And Yellowstone Park has moved into the red zone. What this means is that it could explode at any given moment.
If such a violent explosion were to occur, some volcunists say the explosion would be heard all over the world and a thick cloud of ash would block out sunlight, plummeting the world into perpetual darkness. Poisonous gasses and sharp shards of glass will be thrown into the air cause wide scale deaths to all that inhale the fallout. Other scientists say those in most danger are the people within a 100 mile radius of the explosion.
Whilst a volcanic explosion of such magnitude will doubtless cause long-term catastrophes around the world, the death of livestock and ruin to agriculture there is a greater chance of survival than alarmists are prepared to consider. If however, you do live in a country with a super volcano get out of the country. Everyone else should stock up on food, buy a gasmask and a good torch.
