Geological links to climate

No, no no. It's not volcanoes that influence the climate. It's human activity that causes volcanoes. Duh! We need to cut back on greenhouse emissions and toss in some virgins because MOTHER EARTH IS ANGRY.

No, we shouldn't throw virgins into the volcano, we should throw some of the more rabid environmentalists into the volcano.

I thought Stacking Up was something that shelf fillers in supermarkets were employed for. Surprised to hear that a Prof. is doing it too.
