After escaping Bangkok just before the Red Shirts were shot I thought that I was on the safe side. Nope. Now it is believed that the volcanic eruption under the Eyjafjallajokull glacier on Iceland may continue to melt ice for a prolonged period. The eruption will continue to produce ash as long as water comes in contact with the lava. The air traffic in northern Europe may therefore be severely affected for quite some time. I sure hope the water melts rapidly as I have to catch a plane to Mexico in the near future. The irony here is that my whole project is aimed at criticising Richardson Gill’s all too generalizing mega-drought perspective. Volcanoes are Gill’s main agents behind these droughts… Do I sense a conspiracy? Has Gill joined the 2012ers since the volcanic eruption on Iceland for sure is evidence of the upcoming polar shift (according to the 2012 logic)?
