What could possibly have caused the rather inconvenient Icelandic volcano? In America, the notoriously liberal National Public Radio had an interesting debate about the cause of the volcanic eruption.
According to the host: "We do wonder whether there's human involvement in all of these eruptions, earthquakes, storms", while the guest, a senior CNN correspondent, responded with: "Climate change is contributing to earthquakes and volcanic ash."
Now, you might have thought that was one of the most asinine assessments you have ever heard and you would be right -- but not for the reasons you think.
