Volcanoes are formed when a hot liquid like substance called magma breaks through the Earth's crust Once the magma reaches the surface and gushes into the air, this is known as a volcanic eruption Volcanic eruptions can release lava, rocks, dust, volcanic ash and toxic gases into the atmosphere Some eruptions are huge and kill lots of people but other eruptions can be small flows of lava that are easily avoided Volcanoes normally give off warning sides before an eruption occurs, such as tremors or gases, and this gives people nearby time to evacuate … [Read more...] about Humans survived volcanic ‘super-eruption’ that caused ’10-year winter’ 70,000 years ago

First, the labour market is more precarious. It is impossible to overstate the impact this has: I spoke to a number of people, right across the payscale, from delivery drivers to corporate senior managers, who would not even give me anonymous quotes in case their employers could be identified.
