According to the MSM, the world’s largest active volcano, Hawaii’s Mauna Loa, has erupted for the first time since 1984. The lava flow is mostly contained within the summit, but residents have been placed on alert and were earlier warned about the risk of falling ash. The US Geological Service (USGS) has said the situation could change rapidly.

The CO2 emitted will be substantial and far more than James Shaw and his cohort could hope to reduce in a year in Jacindaland.

But it’s perfectly natural and good for world vegetation growth.

Mauna Loa = Maunga Roa in Maori = Long Mountain: this Google Earth 3D view makes the reason for the name obvious.
