Taal volcano: Lava spews as 'hazardous eruption' feared - BBC News

  • Published: 13 January 2020
  • A volcano in the Philippines has begun spewing lava, as authorities warn that a "hazardous eruption" is possible "within hours or days".

    In the early hours of Monday, a weak flow of lava began seeping out of Taal volcano - located some 70km (45 miles) south of the capital Manila.

    It comes after it emitted a huge plume of ash, triggering the mass evacuation of 8,000 people from the area.

    Taal is the Philippines' second most active volcano.

                              That looks like a lot of Co2. Are the people of the Philippines going to be paying a carbon tax for this?

                                    If a whole ice glacier melts into the sea that massive amount of water is going somewhere and it's going to affect all the volcanoes we are pretty safe here in America but and expect our rivers to be a little bit contaminated with the run on you can say goodbye to Miami and corpus Christi we didn't learn our lesson with the dust bowls and mother nature has to spank us again the worst we are the harder the spanking

I always admire the acuracy of BBC news, so this minor slip-up caught my attention. :p This eruption reminds me a lot of the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption in my home state of Washinton, where I could see the ash plume from Seattle. Now I am living in Mindanao, far south of the Taal volcano... but can't help but admire the resiliance of the Philippine people during these natural disasters.

Luke 24:39. and the book of revelations. the bible explicitly told that upon the day of judgement, all the dead shall be raised and judged. The book of revelations tells about "resurrection" of the body, not just spirit, to be judged. Hence the body will be burned for eternity in a sea of sulfur or be sent to heaven. Go read your bible, dont let an atheist no more about bible than you. embarassing

                                                                                        you misunderstood. people KNOWS happiness because they know what sadness feels like. you know that something is cold because you know what something hot feels like. we know it's dark because we've seen the light. "Victory is sweetest when you've known defeat", as the saying goes.

                                                                                        you said it yourself, heaven is a place where there is no more weeping and suffering. where there is no "defeat", only victory. An existence of monotony, an existence where you wont work hard for anything as you've got everything, where you dont need food as you're never hungry, where you dont need to seek joy as you are always happy. That kind of life, is not worth living, it's a worthless life, of ETERNITY.

                                                                                        either humans get bored in heaven after few thousand years and will want to go out of it and explore, or god will remove free will and human curiosity basically turning humans inside heaven robots.

                                                                                        heaven is the product of human imagination, of a utopia humans crave in times of hardship and suffering. but in times of these craving humans let go of logic, and fails to realize that an eternity is an awfully long time. Humans are quite adaptable, after a few thousand years of swimming in molten sufur, you'll be quite used to the heat lol, and at least you can do whatever you want in hell unlike in heaven. heaven and hell, such childish concept.
