Speaking of Volcanos





The Cotopaxi volcano near Quito, Ecuador erupted this morning at 10:50 local time.  It was preceded by a swarm of earthquakes under 3.0.  Recall that earlier this year we had a volcano erupt in Chile.  We might be in for global cooling in some other part of the world, depending on the prevailing winds and the amount of ash thrown up into the atmosphere.
