This excess energy being released as EQ's and volcanic eruptions must have an external source. Snippet below accounts for our impact. Haven't seen any current energy projections but even I can see we have surpassed the planets ability to absorb what we currently are receiving.

http://tmgnow.com/repository/global/planetophysical3.html

" Implicit consequences are those processes which are below the threshold of usual human perception, and are therefore not brought to our common attention. Instrument recordings, and even direct observations, of these phenomena throughout Earth's electromagnetic field provides evidence that an immense transformation of Earth's environment is taking place. This situation is aggravated by the fact that in the 1990's anthropogeneous (human) power production/usage increased to (1-9)E+26 ergs/per year which means it reached the conservative energetic production/usage values of our planet. For example, Earth's annual energy consumption is comprised of (1-9)E+26 ergs for earthquakes, (1-9)E+24 for geomagnetic storms, and (1-9)E+28 for heat emission [54]."

Magma plume: Volcanologists monitor swarm of new tremors under El Hierro Island

Feb 16,2012

"The submarine eruption south of El Hierro Island could be in a process of change: While visible activity on the sea surface above the vent, as well as harmonic tremor signal (thought to be more or less proportional to erupting magma flux) have nearly ceased, the number of earthquakes under the island has increased sharply since yesterday.

On 15 February, more than 20 quakes were measured. Most of the earthquakes were very small, well below magnitude 2, and were clustered beneath the NW and SW sectors of the island at depths of around 10 km.

Mt Fuji volcano (Japan): signs of volcanic unrest reported

Saturday Feb 18, 2012 11:42 AM | Age: 2 days

BY: T

"Reports are appearing about unrest and signs of a possible awakening of Mt Fuji volcano in Japan.

According to a report which includes an unclear photo of the area, a row of new craters, the largest 50 m in diameter, has appeared on the eastern flank of the volcano at 2200 m elevation. Steam was observed erupting from these vents.

The observation joins other signs suggesting a gradual reawakening: A swarm of earthquakes including 4 of magnitude 5 have occurred northeast of Mt Fuji on and after 28 January. An earlier 6.4M quake occurred under the volcano on 15 March 2011. The report also mentions increased activity from a fumarole vent at 1500 m elevation and hot spring areas at the eastern flank observed since 2003.

Super Volcano Discovered In Bolivia and Growing Fast

Uploaded by Stormbringer2012 on Nov 23, 2011

2012 Nibiru A previously dormant South American volcano is inflating with astonishing speed, scientists have discovered. Researchers from several U.S. universities say Uturuncu, which rises 6,000 meters in southwest Bolivia, is blowing up like a big balloon as its magma chamber grows around 10 times faster than normal.'It's one of the fastest uplifting volcanic areas on Earth,' said Oregon State University professor, Shan de Silva.

magma is rising at the rate 27 cubic feet per second....dang...

"The remote Kanaga stratovolcano in the Aleutian Islands might have begun erupting, the Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) reports."

"A possible ash cloud about 39 km (24 mi) NE of the volcano, likely from weak explosive activity, was detected on satellite imagery, and volcanic tremor was detected under the volcano from 15:23-15:27 UTC (6:23 AM AKST) on 18 February, followed by numerous small events for about an hour at Kanaga Volcano.

AVO has placed the volcano at Aviation Color Code YELLOW. "This new unrest indicates a possibility for sudden explosions of ash to occur at any time, and ash clouds exceeding 20,000 feet above sea level may develop. If a large, explosive, ash-producing event occurs, the local seismic network, satellite ash alarms, infrasound, and volcanic lightning will alert AVO to the new activity."

Mud pool draws hordes of wildlife and people

Feb 24, 2012

"A rare phenomenon is attracting a beeline of "visitors" at the mud volcano in the Tabin Wildlife Reserve in Lahad Datu"

image.jpgVisitors at the mud volcano in Tabin Wildlife Reserve, Lahad Datu, where its pool has overflowed to about the size of a football field, three times bigger than its normal size. Pic by Lano Lan

"Volcanic mud has been spewing at least twice to three times more actively than normal since last week. This has created an overflow of the sulphuric substance that has spread over an area as big as a football field.    Apart from excited guests at the nearby Tabin Wildlife Resort, the number of wild animals, too, appears to have increased at the mud pool"

Magma Plume: Is Hawaii’s most active volcano about to enter a more violent phase?

Feb 24, 2012

1_21_volcano_kilauea_ocean.jpgfoxnewsimg

"A magnitude 4.3 earthquake rattled the summit of Kilauea early this morning, continuing a swarm of small tremors shaking the region since Wednesday.

The earthquake, recorded at 3:53 a.m., was centered near the summit of Kilauea. It is the largest of more than 100 small quakes in a swarm that began two days ago.

USGS geophysicist Randy Baldwin said since the earthquake struck on land, there was no tsunami danger. 

On Thursday night a magnitude 4.1 earthquake was also felt on Hawaii island. That earthquake, which hit at 9:11 p.m., was centered 5 miles west of Volcano at a depth of 3.2 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The shaking was felt up to 75 miles away in Waikoloa, according to the USGS. A flurry of small temblors were recorded after the 4.1 magnitude quake.

Icelandic Volcano Fimmvörðuháls Erupts During Aurora Borealis

Feb 22, 2012

r-VOLCANONORTHERNLIGHTS-large5702.jpegJames Appleton credit

"A photographer from Britain, James Appleton, has captured breath-taking pictures from Iceland, reports The Huffington Post. He captured both magma and northern lights in one shot. He stood just a few yards from an erupting volcano in order to take the pictures and they just might be  one of nature’s most amazing sights.

James was willing to go within a few hundred feet of an erupting volcano after working alongside vulcanologists in Iceland, and found out about Fimmvörðuháls who from his Icelandic friend.

New Eruptions at Rincon de la Vieja in Costa Rica

By Erik Klemetti Email Author February 27, 2012 |  7:41 am |  Categories: Eruptions, Science Blogs

| Edit

An undated image of Rincón de la Vieja in Costa Rica. The active crater is seen in the foreground with a small crater lake. The lake between the active crater and the forested crater is Los Jilgueros. Santa Maria volcano is seen in the far background.

"It has been almost exactly 14 years since the last eruptive period for Rincón de la Vieja in Costa Rica, but it looks like the volcano might be awakening from its break. Last Thursday (Feb. 22), the volcano experienced two small explosions in the early morning. Seismic records suggest the volcano also had small explosions on Feb. 19 and 20, according to the OVSICORI report for Feb. 25 (PDF). None of the explosions caused any damage to anything near the volcano and there are no reports of ash fall other than in the crater itself. These explosions are very similar in style to the September 2011 explosions that were like phreatic in nature — that is, not new magma but superheated water generated the explosions.

Hey folks.

Been a while since last. I have been laying kind of low lately, got my reasons. But its fantastic to be back.

I said I would let you know if there would be some unusual development in Iceland regarding earthquakes and/or eruptions.

Last night, little after 24:00 and then again at around 01:00 and 03:00 (all local time) there were some earthquakes. The largest ones were little under 4. 

(There were no casualties and no buildings damages apart from some cracks in very few houses.)

The unusual thing is that they were all in places where the ground usually doesnt shake. This could mean nothing but it could also be a build up for something larger (eruption on a gigantic scale).

Some of them were very close to Reykjavik (capital) and Keflavik (Keflavik airport KEF). There are some sleeping giants in that area.

Scientists were called out right away even though the quakes were not that strong, but because of their origin.

There have not been any predictions or conclusions made in the news after these quakes and I think it is to avoid alarming people. And I have not seen anything about this in news outside of Iceland. Which I also understand regarding the tourist industry.

I will keep you updated if this abnormal activity will continue.

You hear/read it first on Chani, right ;)

"BUKITTINGGI, Indonesia (BNO NEWS) -- Mount Marapi, a volcano located in the Indonesian province of West Sumatra, briefly erupted on early Wednesday morning, officials said. It comes after activity was also reported at the volcano in August 2011.

The 2,891-meter (9,485 feet) tall volcano, which is located near the cities and town of Bukittinggi, Padang Panjang and Batusangkar in West Sumatra, began erupting at around 7:30 a.m. local time on Wednesday, according to the Antara news agency.

Marapi's initial eruption lasted around fifteen minutes and spewed out volcanic ashes which reached some 200 meters (656 feet) to the south from its crater. A second eruption took place moments later, lasting about ten minutes and bringing thick white smoke about 100 meters (328 feet) up.

Montserrat’s Soufrière Hills volcano unleashes small pyroclastic flow

3/14/2012

"A small pyroclastic flow occurred from Montserrat's Soufrière Hills volcano on 9 March, MVO reports. The flow was small, but happened with no warning at around 5:20 pm (local time) from the western flanks of Soufriere Hills Volcano down into Spring Ghaut.

The pyroclastic flow traveled about 1 km to the west towards Plymouth before its ash dissipated to form a small ash cloud rising 1.3 km and drifting towards St. Georges Hill and out to sea. MVO has published further details and photographs of this event which is significant as it occurred during a quiet phase of the volcano with no current active lava dome growth and illustrates the hazard of sudden pyroclastic flows.

Santorini: history’s most dreaded volcano awakes and is rapidly inflating warns geologist

3/14/2012

santorini-volcano-erruption.jpgexplorecrete

"Do a Google image search for "Greece." Before you find pictures of the Parthenon or Acropolis, you'll see several beautiful photos of Santorini, the picturesque island in the Aegean Sea. The British Broadcasting Company named it the world's best island in 2011. Santorini is a tourist magnet, famous for its breathtaking, cliff side views and sunsets. It's also a volcanic island that has been relatively calm since its last eruption in 1950. Until now.

"That could be dangerous," notes Newman. "If the caldera erupts underwater, it could cause local tsunamis and affect boat traffic, including cruise ships, in the caldera. Earthquakes could damage homes and produce landslides along the cliffs."

More than 50,000 tourists a day flock to Santorini in the summer months (from May to October). It's common to see as many as five cruise ships floating above the volcano.

Cleveland Volcano Explodes For Third Time

Stephanie Joyce, KUCB - Unalaska | March 14, 2012

"Cleveland Volcano has exploded for the third time in just over a week.  The latest eruption of the Aleutian volcano Tuesday afternoon was relatively small, according to a release from the Alaska Volcano Observatory.

Scientists at the Observatory weren’t able detect an ash cloud associated with this event or either of the other two.  There’s no real-time monitoring equipment on Cleveland.

None of the recent eruptions have interrupted air travel in the region.

Indonesia’s Lamongan volcano awakens from sleep after 114 years

Thursday Mar 15, 2012

BY: T

"A new volcano in Indonesia, Lamongan volcano in Eastern Java, is showing signs of unrest: weak steaming from its active crater and increasing earthquakes were reported by Indonesian scientists.

Mexico’s Popocatépetl volcano unleashes 9 low-level emissions

3/15/2012

"MEXICO – The National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) reported that in the last hours, the volcano Popocatepetl has expelled nine low-intensity exhalations accompanied by emissions of water vapor and gas, and sometimes small amounts of ash. The body of the Ministry of the Interior (Interior Ministry) reported that the monitoring parameters remain without important changes. He explained that at night, a glow was observed in the crater of the volcano and that for now; there has been a constant emission of steam and gas.

Yes, I know that some of these are updates on ones already posted...however, there are just as many new ones going off...Do we realize how all this ash in the air could be affecting the growing of food, the climate, and people??  I don't post these necessarily because it's doom and gloom, but more because we need to be paying attention..IF your weather doesn't seem right this year, it could be because of many different reasons, not the least of which one could be, the volcanic ash being spewed into the atmosphere..
