Apparently not anymore. The Corner warns of a “dire” threat:
Unlike the relatively modest eruption of Eyjafjallajökull in
in the spring of 2010, an eruption of Campi Flegrei would be beyond human imagination. It last erupted in 1538, killing dozens of people and creating the 1,500-foot-high Monte Nuovo. An eruption in this area more than 39,000 years ago had the same effect as a giant meteorite landing; it created the eight-mile wide depression that now forms the caldera. Iceland
"[An eruption of] Campi Flegrei could generate global, worldwide catastrophes," De Natale tells NEWSWEEK. "If it erupted, it would be really a complete catastrophe at a global scale, with millions of casualties, strong climate changes, perhaps causing a small ice age, and sterilization [contamination] of several hundred thousand square kilometers of European land for centuries."
Can’t we just privatize all this? If volcanoes need to be monitored, why can't we turn this over to the private sector and then cut taxes with all the money that is saved. I know Bobby Jindal will back me on this one.
