January 1, Volcanic Eruption Subsides, Scientists Warn of More to Come



The volcanic eruption in southwestern Iceland, which began early Thursday morning, has reportedly subsided, but scientists are warning that more eruptions may be on the horizon. Iceland’s Meteorological Office announced late Thursday that the eruption had significantly decreased.

The eruption occurred northeast of Mount Sýlingarfell, prompting the evacuation of the popular Blue Lagoon thermal spa and cutting off heat and hot water to several communities on the Reykjanes Peninsula in the southwestern corner of the island. Prime Minister Katrin Jakobsdottir stated that authorities hope to restore hot water to the area by midday on Friday, as reported by national broadcaster RUV.

The eruption site is situated about 4 kilometers (2½ miles) northeast of Grindavik, a coastal town of 3,800 people that was evacuated before a previous eruption on December 18. The town was not threatened by Thursday’s eruption.

Benedikt Ófeigsson, a geophysicist at the Icelandic Met Office, told RUV that the area can expect an eruption every month or so over the next few months. “In the long term, it’s very difficult to say, but in the short term, the next months, we will probably continue to see repeated magma intrusions and eruptions,” he said.

Why It Matters (op-ed)

The recent volcanic eruption in Iceland highlights the globalist agenda’s ineptitude in handling environmental disasters. With more eruptions predicted, it’s evident that leftist policies have failed to protect citizens from natural catastrophes.

The evacuation of the Blue Lagoon thermal spa and disrupted heat and water supply demonstrate the government’s inability to provide basic services. This incident serves as a warning to those blindly following the globalist narrative.
