    Eruption may ground fights, Iceland's "Kettel " ready to blow

    https://www.standard.co.uk/news/world/katla-volcano-scientists-warn-huge-icelandic-volcano-is-about-to-erupt-dwarfing-2010-ash-cloud-a3943411.html

    Scientists have warned that a huge volcano in Iceland is about to erupt, dwarfing the explosion that disrupted air travel across the world eight years ago.
    Katla, described as “highly hazardous”, has been releasing a massive amount of carbon dioxide – a clear indication that its magma chambers are filling up fast.
    Researchers believe its eruption could overshadow that of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano in 2010 – which caused a giant ash cloud that effectively grounded all European air travel.
    Thousands of passengers were stranded as the ash dispersed above Europe, triggering further disruption around the world.

    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    I was stranded in Thailand, such a bother. My director still signed off my "expenses" claim. Those were the days.

    It was, allegedly, a UK cold war plan to stuff a couple of nukes into Icelandic volcanoes in the event of WW3. The idea being that by pre empting an eruption the ash cloud would interfere with Soviet missiles.

    Would have served them right for nicking our cod.
