The eruption had been “really unexpected”.

Yeah, like climate. From stuff.co.nz: (h/t to reader Dr K.A. Rodgers)


Mt Tongariro has erupted, with ash fall closing roads and prompting a potential threat warning for central North Island regions.

The eruption at 11.50pm last night threw rocks and spewed ash from the Te Mari craters, near Ketetahi hot springs, on the northern side of the mountain, GNS Science said.

Civil Defence said volcanic activity could pose a threat to Waikato, Hawke’s Bay, Gisborne, Manawatu-Whanganui, Bay of Plenty and Taranaki.

People living in those areas were advised to stay indoors with all the windows and doors closed and listen to the radio for updated emergency information and instructions.

The Desert Road section of State Highway 1, northeast of the mountain, and State Highway 46, to the north, had been closed due to the ash.

Ash had reportedly fallen as far east as Napier, police said.

The eruption had been “really unexpected”.

“You can measure and monitor but sometimes mother nature will do her own thing.”

So then you're just ignorant then, because volcanoes have received plenty of attention and mention. Or you know it's not true, in which case you're just a liar.

Well, goody for you. Did I say you were doing anything wrong? Some of us grow out of that need for attention. Gold star for you and a hero cookie. What does any of this have to do with volcanoes?

None.
