In case you're becoming bored with the Oregon "standoff".

A rich trove.

I almost hesitate to post, since this is fairly routine tabloid stuff, except that I had not heard of the European Science Foundation before.

Yesterday it was mega earthquake swarms. Sounds like the Express (which I hadn't heard of until today) is a bit on the sensationalist side of things.

Why, yes. Yes, one does get that impression, what?

You do get the idea that the headlines should finish with, '...and you'll never guess what happened next!'

European Science Foundation: link. The pdf file is here: link. Volcanoes start on page 26, no matter what their table of contents says (ToC doesn't count all the other pages, apparently, while my computer does.) I don't see any mention of a 'volcano season,' as quoted in the news article. They do say something about eruptions seeming to cluster. There's a cute graph showing AGW in a green blob being outstripped by volcanoes and asteroids, but being worse than tsunamis. AGW is, however, the most important hazard. Not quite as alarming as the article.
