Animated: the Spread of Volcanic Ash Across Europe

TAB has the must-see animation of the effects of the eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull volcano (courtesy: DMI Denmark).

Now, I wonder which one of our brilliant climate researchers will provide us with an honest, accurate measurement of the toxic crap belched out by this single volcano -- and compare it to all man-made pollution since, oh, time began.

My guess: you won't see such a comparison, because one hour of this volcano's output likely represents all human-caused greenhouse gases since the beginning of recorded history.

Hat tip: Charlie Foxtrot.
