It must be odd to go sailing in sight of icebergs. How are your volcanos doing?

Its crater lake got dammed up during its last eruption, and the material is fairly soft. The lake has now risen past the base of the dam, but in the meantime the dam has consolidated. When or even if it will burst is still a matter for conjecture.
A lahar from this lake is a worry because it crosses one of our major ski-fields, and because it will reach the main road and rail in that part of the country and could take them out. Too bad about any passing traffic.
” The new studies looked at the consequences if two nations dropped 50 Hiroshima-size bombs on each other's big cities. By analyzing population data and distance from blast, scientists predicted a regional nuclear war would kill 3 million people in Israel and up to 17 million in China. The U.S. would see 4 million blast deaths.”

I did see it just so I could make fun of it and it was too boring to find anything to make fun of. About two-thirds is a quasi-documentary of Gore presenting to an audience the greenhouse slide show he's been giving for nearly 20 years.
Did you stop to consider that 20 years ago he was predicting a global disaster that we should be suffering from today?
Mostly we see Gore talking and pointing at charts, interspersed with detours into the former vice president's political career: the Florida recount, Gore's stump-speech telling of his son's auto accident and his sister's tragic death from lung cancer.
a boring boring movie
