Should we bomb Iceland’s Bárðarbunga volcano?

Aerial bombing of Hawaii’s Mauna Loa volcano was done in the past, widening the eruption crater to minimize high flying volcanic ash problems. WUWT reader “magma control” writes in with this suggestion: The USAF bombed the Hawaiian volcano Mauna Loa, in 1935  and 1942  to divert lava flows threatening Hilo, and again for testing in 1975-76…

Hilarious! Sierra Club & 350.org ditch polar bears as climate mascot, try ‘cat videos’ for climate change instead

In the past we’ve seen polar bears dropped from the sky and animals committing suicide rather than face climate change. Those didn’t go over very well. So, the Sierra Club and the McKibbenites muse to themselves; what to do? Why “kittens” of course.  We”ll borrow from the old National Lampoon Magazine cover and say “do…

NOAA gives us some clues, with their charts of EF-1+ and EF-3 to EF-5 tornadoes since 1954. (NOAA ignore EF-0’s, because many more of these weak tornadoes get to be reported…
