I have been saying for years that global volcanic activity is on the rise and it's now obvious that volcanoes are erupting at a faster pace, not only around the ring of fire but also around the entire globe. Even dormant and extinct volcanoes are becoming active again.
An extinct volcano by definition is a dead volcano, which has not erupted in the last 10 000 years and is not expected to ever erupt again. In other words, an extinct volcano implies that there is no magmatic, seismic or degassing activity going on at the volcano and that it's not expected to erupt again in a comparable time scale of the future.
- A volcano in Russia may be active again and scientists are worried that it could have "catastrophic" consequences1
- Iceland fears dormant volcano may be waking up2
- Previously extinct volcano raised to eruption warning level in Colombia: eruption would be first in recorded history3
- Dormant volcanoes from around the world are coming to life for the first time in 160,000 years4

More importantly, unrest is growing right now among some of the world's Super-volcanoes like Laguna del Maule in Chile and Italy's Campi Flerei — under the city of Naples. Since 2005, Campi Flegrei has been undergoing what volcanologists call an uplift. Campi Flegrei showing signs of reawakening, Italy6
The Campi Flegrei may be nearing a critical pressure point necessary to drive an eruption for the first time in 500 years, according to scientists. The pace of ground deformation and low-level seismic activity has recently increased and they are similar to two other active volcanoes – Rabaul in Papua New Guinea and Sierra Negra in the Galapagos – 'both showed an acceleration in ground deformation before eruption with a pattern similar to that observed at Campi Flegrei,' said one Italian geophysicist.

Also, the second biggest land Super-volcano, Toba in Indonesia is showing signs of a possible eruption. "Residents of the villages of Sitoluama in North Sumatra district are in a state of panic as the ground beneath their homes is becoming hot and emitting steam that smells like sulfur and gas."8 The other Sumatran volcano that seems to be waking up after 170 years of quiet is Seulawah Agam. Alert level raised at another Indonesian volcano: Seulawah Agam.9 "The other Indonesian volcano which is very active at the present time is Sinabung. Prior to 2010, Mount Sinabung had been dormant for about 400 years.
"This volcano is located in the Karo plateau of Karo Regency, North Sumatra, 40 km (25 miles) from Lake Toba supervolcano. Many old lava flows are on its flanks and the last known eruption, before recent times, occurred in the year 1600. Solfataric activities (cracks where steam, gas, and lava are emitted) were last observed at the summit in 1912; recent documented events include an eruption in the early hours of August 29, 2010, and eruptions in September and November 2013, January, February and October 2014. A pyroclastic flow in May 2016 killed 7 people. On June 2, 2015, the alert was again increased, and as of June 26, 2015 at least 10 000 people have been evacuated" Activity at Indonesian Mount Sinabung remains high, January 17, 2017.10 The other super-volcanoes that show signs of unrest are those in Iceland, Greece, Bolivia and the biggest one of them all the Yellowstone Super-volcano in the US. All of these super-volcanoes systems are now exhibiting clear signs of inflation, an early indication that pressure is building in these volcanic systems.
On the other hand, the Nyamuragira volcano (DR Congo) is becoming active again after the 2002 eruption that killed 147 people and forced 400 000 people to flee the nearby city of Goma. One of Africa's most active volcanoes is showing new signs of life.11 Nyamuragira volcano (DR Congo): Strong thermal signal from the summit area, January 15, 2017.12 See the following link for more active volcanoes worldwide.
These geological activities have exposed entirely the truths regarding the current mainstream view about climate change. But, the mass media is not giving up. No matter what scientific data you provide about the real cause, the final decision is in the hands of people like Al Gore. In fact, I saw one peer-reviewed paper that claims the increase of volcanic eruption is caused by the emission of greenhouse gases. How much more stupid can it get?13
The first question anyone would ask is why there is an increase in volcanic activity? And secondly, why are even dormant volcanoes becoming active? And how can a dead volcano come back to life?
If you are going to ask these questions to any mainstream geologist or geophysicist, you are not going to get real scientific answers. Because there is no way these questions can be explained with current theories. This is the reason why the mainstream has averted the issue altogether. But, of course, all geophysicists, especially volcanologists know very well that there is a massive increase in volcanic activities. This fact is overwhelmingly clear from short and long term statistics.
The number of volcanoes that are erupting right now is higher than the average number of volcanic eruptions in the 20th century. However, it is a well-known fact and everyone agrees with it, that when volcanoes erupt they release internal heat and pressure. And therefore, if the Earth has been around for only 4 million years, not 4 billion years, then according to a calculation based on elementary physics the core of the Earth should be a dead-cold, by now not hotter than the surface of the Sun.
So, how can the Earth's core maintain such temperature, taking into consideration the size of the Earth, the number of land and submarine volcanoes and how many times they have erupted since Earth's creation? Without revising the fundamental laws of physics, these questions and other basic questions about our own star and planet cannot be understood.
Can current physics explain why the Sun and the Earth have magnetic fields in the first place? Or the most important question, the origin of magnetic fields in the Universe as a whole? And why these magnetic fields change from time to time? Why Earth takes a very long time to change its magnetic field compared to the Sun? And why there are times when so many volcanoes erupt at the same time?
Nonetheless, revising the fundamental laws of physics under the current political-economic system is completely out of the question. Fake science is a very huge business, and it has been for decades. This conduct is a clear sign that the moral decay of our society has reached its lowest level.
