Vanuatu evacuates an island due to volcanic eruption, Bali evacuates villages due to volcanic eruption, Sinabung erupts, but what they dont tell you is that every Grand Solar Minimum there are massive eruptions that destroy global crop production. Now with record Arctic sea ice growth in 2017, the most ever recorded in September, the global warming crowd is just hoping for an eruption so they can blame Earths cooling temperatures on the volcano, not the Sun, which is the true driver of our climate.
Mount Agung, Bali 134,000 Flee Danger – Violent Eruptions And The Grand Solar Minimum Connection
More than 134,000 people have fled the area surrounding the Mount Agung volcano on the Indonesian island of Bali, fearing an imminent eruption.
The Indonesian disaster agency’s 134,200 figure is more than double the population of the exclusion zone 7.5 miles around the mountain, but people from further afield are leaving too, the Associated Press reported.
The volcano, located in the northeast of the island, has been rumbling since August but the tremors escalated dramatically in recent days. It last erupted in 1963, spewing ash, gas, rock and miles of lava, killing more than 1,100 people and destroying numerous homes. It remained active for more than a year.
Many of the evacuees, who set off after the red alert was given on Friday, are sheltering in buildings including temporary camps and sports centers. Sirens will be sounded if an eruption occurs.
“I was very worried about the situation” said Nyoman Suarta, who lives in a village just outside the danger zone. “So I decided to get out to save myself with my stuff and my pet,” he said, carrying a bird in a cage.
With the overwhelming evidence of a connection between low solar activity and volcanic eruptions and large earthquakes. It comes as no surprise to find out that Mount Agung erupted during the Dalton Minimum. The same minimum that Mt. Tambora erupted ushering in the year without a summer in 1816. As well as the massive New Madrid earthquakes of 1811-12.
Gunung Agung last erupted in 1963–1964 at the end of solar cycle 19 during another solar minimum. It is still active with a large and very deep crater which occasionally belches smoke and ash. From a distance, the mountain appears to be perfectly conical.
