Mexico’s Popocatepetl volcano unleashes tower of ash

June 1. 2012MEXICOMexico’s Popocatepetl Volcano has blasted a tower of ash over nearby towns and villages prompting authorities to consider the possibility of evacuations. Popocatepetl sits roughly halfway between Mexico City and the city of Puebla, meaning some 25 million people live within a 90-km (60-mile) radius of the volcano. Over a month ago, the volcanic eruptions started growing larger. –BBC

    Alvin, I have been following your blog for about a year now almost every day. And I’ve noticed that recently A LOT of volcanoes have been popping off. It reminds me of that 2012 movie and how those neutrinos are getting into the earth though the holes in the magnetic fields. Is this amount of volcanic actvity normal? Or are we just more aware of what is going on ue to the web and available news updates?

    • Thanks for following us. We had 56 volcanic eruptions for all of 2011 and we’re already at 55 as of June 1, 2012. When I wrote my book in 2009, I warned this would happen – that the number of volcanoes venting would begin to rise dramatically and I recieved many notes from people who bought the book in 2011 and said, I was misreprenting the data and that the number of volcanic eruptions was not increasing and I was doing nothing but scaremongering. In 2012, a volcanic hell is breaking loose just as I said it would.

      I think the data speaks for itself about the escalation of activity…and it’s going to get worst. Much worst…

    Alvin, I too follow your postings, checking several times a day. You are doing a great service with your research. Thanks for making it available to us in the rank and file. The only reason anyone cannot see the unfolding of earth changing events is willful ignorance. (at least in the modern world.)

  4. June 1, 2012. Wildfire in New Mexico also much much worse today. I am far from it but don’t dare go out without a mask for fear of smoke. I have already been in the clinic being treated for smoke results right after the eclipse, and as soon as wind changes, this will be unlivable for me.
    I may have to go to the coast for a while, where the Big earthquakes are predicted. I have a Hepa filter with charcoal but it was not good enough for our smoke last summer, which lasted for months. 1200 firefighters now on the scene in southern NM, compared to 1000 on our fire line last year.

      Home for me is Colorado and I know they’ve been impacted by the smoke from this fire as well. My thoughts and many, many prayers are for the West – may God send rain to quench the fire(s) and help prevent others. I just wish the forest service and the tree-huggers would let the dead wood be cut down and removed from our national forests. I tend toward tree-hugging myself, but I’ve seen first hand how dangerous the forests are right now. A lightning strike – boom! Inferno!

    There are a fair amount of super volcanos in our planet, each of them bringing an extinction level event to the world, some great than the others, such as Yellowstone. The last super volcano to kill of most life was nearly 70,000 years ago, Toba, I think, not sure. Is there any evidence pointing to one erupting this year?
