While politicians here are busy fighting man-made global warming and demanding carbon emission reductions, they're kind of missing what's under their feet:
That's a massive pool of molten carbon. Oh good heavens! Releasing 1% of this reservoir into the atmosphere would be equivalent to burning 2.3 trillion barrels of oil. We'd better start fitting our volcanoes with filters.
Because everybody knows that the Sun and planetary actions have noting to do with Climate Change™.
