A sense of wonder

.. and a sense of forboding.

I saw the President of Iceland on Newsnight last night almost begging Europe to get ready for what may happen when the major volcano that is overdue to erupt blows, as it has historically usually done after an eruption at Eyjafjallajökull.

Iceland has been hit very hard by its bankers and Gordon Brown. But they are at least getting prepared.

PS I hope there's a question on the disgraceful way Iceland was treated over the banking crisis in the foreign policy leaders debate.

Good one and right on. Those of us who look at volcano material will be very nervous at the moment. Thanks to recent research over the last couple of decades it is now apparent what is possible. I have been ash checking and I do not like the glint in some of the stuff.
