A new site in South Africa, Wonderkrater, has been identified since this map was first published (Thackeray et al., 2019).
Indefatigable genius and digital friend of the Tusk, Dr. Martin Sweatman, authored a surprise blockbuster this week. Below is a peer-reviewed and fully accepted pre-online synthesis overview of the Younger Dryas Impact controversy since the very first paper in 2007. 'The Younger Dryas impact hypothesis: review of the impact evidence' concludes — in perhaps the world's most appropriate and respected scientific journal — that based on the published evidence, our modern world is indeed birthed of a horrendous global catastrophe ~12,881 years ago. It is a lengthy, detailed, fair and lucid tour-de-force in support of The Event based on Martin's reading of the entire debate.

Martin is an example to the Tusk of how many, many people there are on earth. You have to have 8+ billion humans in order to have enough brain matter and determination on the end of the bell curve to find a just one single, well-qualified, unbiased, poly-curious scientist, so determined to find the truth that they will to read every last word — and then write every last word — well.

Indonesia's Sinabung volcano erupts, spewing massive column of smoke and ash up to 2,800 metres high

Mount Sinabung erupted on Friday,

Indonesia's Mount Sinabung erupted on Friday, spewing a massive column of smoke and ash up to 2,800 metres into the sky.

The volcano in North Sumatra province started belching ash and volcanic material at 9 am and the eruption lasted almost six minutes, a local geological agency said.

Images showed a thick column of ash spewing from the inside of Sinabung towards the east.

Two unbelievably huge monster-sized lava fountains at volcano in Iceland - biggest since the eruption started

erupts
I went to my balcony to film again after hearing there were really huge lava fountains spewing around midnight local time, and lo and behold I caught the 2 biggest ones, filmed around 2am Sunday, May 2nd.

The footage is a little shaky because of strong wind.

Iceland's Fagradalsfjall Volcano continues spectacular eruption after being dormant for 6,000 years

Iceland's Fagradalsfjall volcano has been putting on a spectacular display of new eruptions, over a month since it first erupted, as onlookers continue to gather to watch fiery fountains and rivers of lava.

The lava flows erupting from Fagradalsfjall volcano near Geldingadalir on the Reykjanes Peninsula were captured in day and nighttime footage from RT's Ruptly video agency. A new fissure opened at the site on Thursday.

Eruptions in the region of southwestern Iceland began on March 19, following heavy seismic activity in the area. The Reykjanes Peninsula has not seen a volcanic eruption in nearly 900 years - and Mount Fagradalsfjall itself is believed to have been dormant for hundreds of years.

The latest continuous eruptions have already modified the local landscape, with flowing lava filling up mountain valleys. Some onlookers seen in the footage have been lucky enough to witness the process. Authorities say the burning rivers are not flowing fast enough to pose an immediate danger, so visitors have been permitted to visit the site.

Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: Why is this information being released now in 2021?

Artificial Intelligence has forecast Grand Solar Minimum level sunspot activity beginning now through 2050, this has made it through the main stream media. Interestingly, the same information was released in 2015 by Valentina Zharkova but denied and dismissed. Why is this solar activity information being released at this moment ? Is it to explain why all continents are experiencing crop damage and yield reductions from abnormal cold? My findings and thoughts are explained in the video. Thank you for watching.


Comment: We're entering an ice age. Its effects will likely be felt within the coming year, and its devastating consequences over the next 3-5 years.

Indonesia's Mount Sinabung erupts, spewing ash up to 1,000 meters

volcano
The Sinabung volcano in Indonesia's North Sumatra erupted with a thick column of ash 1,000 meters above its peak to the east, the Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation Center said on Monday.

The eruption occurred at 1:55 a.m. local time for 175 seconds.

At 1:44 a.m. local time on the same day, the mountain with third-level status also erupted with an ash column up to 500 meters high for 167 seconds.

Sakurajima volcano in southwestern Japan erupts sending smoke over 2.3 kilometers into the air

volcano
A volcano on Sakurajima in southwestern Japan erupted early Sunday, sending a column of smoke over 2.3 kilometers into the air, the weather agency said.

Following the eruption at 1:09 a.m., the Japan Meteorological Agency issued an eruption alert, urging people in the cities of Kagoshima and Tarumizu in Kagoshima Prefecture to protect themselves from the potential impact of the volcanic activity. There were no reports of injuries or property damage following the eruption, local authorities said.

The agency initially said pyroclastic flows were confirmed within 1.8 km of the Minamidake crater but said later its on-site observation suggests it was part of the smoke. The likelihood of death or injury is low since people have been prohibited from approaching within 2 km of the crater since February 2016, it added.

Adapt 2030 Ice Age Report: Signs of volcanic cooling

La Soufrière eruption
More volcanoes continue to erupt across the planet this week and some direct results are being seen in real time. Australis snow begins two months early, Hawaii Island peaks covered n snow again, global surface temperatures are below the 30 year average, even after recalibrating to 1991-2020 averages through the warmest years. One thing that is not true is the refreezing of the SonhHua river in N. China, its just melting ice flow.


Comment: Ash from volcanic eruptions, together with particulates from meteor 'smoke' and wildfire smoke, all jointly contribute to the increased dust load in the atmosphere. This changes its electric charge rebalancing mechanisms, producing more intense storms and precipitation in the form of record rainfall, hail, lightning strikes, planetary cooling, atmospheric 'anomalies' etc.

Hawaii: 34 earthquakes rattle world's largest active volcano, raising fears of eruption

Mauna Loa, the world's largest active volcano, covering half of the Big Island of Hawaii, was ratted by 34 small earthquakes on Sunday.

Though only registering small magnitudes, scientists have warned citizens that the mounting seismic activity could signal that an eruption may be possible in the near future.

There have been 155 earthquakes greater than 1.5 on the Richter scale in the past seven days, and 740 in the past month, including a 4.3 on 3 April.

Sunday's largest tremor was a 3.2 magnitude quake that struck Pahala, south of the summit of Mauna Loa at 8.08pm local time. A 3.0 tremor also struck in the afternoon.

In March, the US Geological Survey said that as the volcano continues to awaken from its slumber, it would be a good time for people to revisit their personal emergency plans in the event of an eruption.

La Soufrière update: Volcanic ash reaches 44,000 feet (13.4 km)

La Soufrière eruption


After days of stratospheric venting, explosive volcanic activity is continuing on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, with the Volcanic Ash Advisory Center (VAAC) Washington warning of a volcanic ash plume rising to an estimated 44,000 ft (13,400 m) and COOLING the planet (take note Bill Gates, Earth doesn't need your risky egomaniacal intervention).


Particulates ejected above approx. 10km -and so into the stratosphere- shade sunlight and reduce terrestrial temperatures — smaller particulates can linger in the upper atmosphere for years or even decades+ at a time.

As an example of how far a volcanoes influence can reach, SO2 emissions from La Soufrière have now been detected in Africa:
