    As the ocean temperature rises the sea gets heavier and weighs down on the soil to push the magma up ! Also heat rises so it looks to me another 3 months of magma unless the ocean doesn’t cool down in September! Maybe the scientists can explain Noah’s arc! But if they can’t or choose not to then the Bible stands to say Hawai’i is only maximum 4000 years old about! Also it’s highly possible that Hawai’i becomes the new South Pole! Edgar casy might be right! Wait and see!

    He looks positively happy. Thank you for explaining that. Very interesting. He's a good teacher. What we want to hear is that all those stubborn people who are refusing to come out, come out and there isn't another Truman. I think that was he name. The older man who did interview after interview bragging that Mt. Saint Helens was his home and he'd never leave! I wonder if he'd NOT done those interviews, not bragged so much, if he would have come out? We saw the destruction the day they reopened the mountain. We happened to be there and it was terrifying to see all those trees just mowed down like they were nothing! Frightening. We sure hope there aren't people who are too proud on Hawaii. It makes SO sense that people will stay. God gave us a brain for a reason and it isn't to take our own lives because of pride. :( Mahalo from Montana. Songsmirth

    Is that guy a professional or not. Because the difference in why some volcano explode and other flow is NOT water. The composition on the megma is the difference. Volcanoes with lower quantities of Silica will flow as the magma is more viscous. Water has zero to do with it. It makes me wonder how you can have just a guy telling people faulty information on the news.

    Why doesn't anybody consider the reactor cores that have been burning down toward the core of the earth since 2011 from fukushima.hitting lava tubes on it's way to the core.All volcanoes are connected through the core aren't they ?So why wouldn't those reactor cores release pressure through these lava tubes?I'm not claiming to know what's going on here.Im just wondering why nobody has even considered this.

    Hawaii is the main venting of earth and it is needed to keep a balance and prevents more dangerous pressure like that in Yellowstone which is apocalyptic. Our earth is breathing and the Lava might have traveled all the way round the world and now it is venting time. Hawaii this year and somewhere else next year or even this year. The earth has molten lava underground rivers or veins that keep moving and when it is tine to vent due any build up of pressure this what we get. I would not live on an Island that has an natural earth pressure vent. But this me talking and I am only a farm boy.

    I think Hawaii Kilauea volcano keep erupting to balance the Earth's 30 degree wobble from March 4th just before eruption, it's pole shift or gravity pull from Planet X, Tectonic Shift, Is the Yellowstone Super volcano Next?

    These volcanoes have existed for as long as earth has existed, and will exist long after people no longer exist. In Hawaii, they're shield volcanoes, that are mainly lava flows, not an explosive stratovolcano like Krakatoa. The volcanoes in Hawaii created the islands, although it's the Big Island where they are and the other islands kind of drifted geologically from that point over hundreds of millions of years. There's absolutely nothing one can do about volcanoes. It's earth and its geology. They will start and stop erupting depending on whatever geology. Hoping it will stop, or making some idiotic statement linking volcanoes to politics will make no difference.

    Nice report. Just wanted to clarify, the video that shows the grey ash clouds and the deep circular lava pit are taken at the summit crater of Kilauea which is actually 20 miles west of where the fissure outbreaks near the coast are. The lava that is spewing out is from the underground lava system which would normally be pooling in the main crater's vent. In late April the lava began draining from that main vent and began moving underground toward where the current volcanic activity is occurring. Initially the scientists thought the lava would exit at the Pu'u O'o vent which is about halfway to the current activity. This vent was really active from 1990-2014 with many spectacular lava flows to the sea. The sensors actually indicated that Pu'u O'o was filling with lava , but in a short time it became clear that the lava was moving on, and it must have surprised people when the fissures opened up in early May in Leilani Estates. Many have questioned why a geothermal well and residential neighborhood would have been built in an active volcano zone. Actually, in that area, the last eruption was in 1960 in the town of Kapoho, which is the region that is the farthest eastern tip of the island. Exploratory drilling for the geothermal well was done in mid 1970 as an alternate energy source during the time of high oil prices and gas rationing (1975). The unpopular venture was monitored for nearly 20 years for feasibility and stability and must have been deemed safe as the power plant was built in 1993. Leilani Estates must have used the geothermal project as reassurance for building there and actually the last lava flows in that area were in 1955. I actually watched that from my grandma's house. Anyway the decision to build there has just been shown to be a costly unfortunate gamble. One last point. Bob's colleague was concerned about the large boulder explosions. That is actually a concern at the Main summit crater which I already pointed out is 20 miles away. The mechanics of those explosions are like this; as the lava drains from the main vent toward Leilani Estates the level of lava at the summit will fall below the artesian water table level. The walls of the main vent will be collapsing in on itself and act as a debris plug. Meanwhile the water flowing into the vent will build up steam pressure until it is released as an explosive ash cloud eruption and the process will continue until the lava level rises to cut off the water source, So there is water involved, but the volcanoes Bob mentioned Mt. Etna, Herculaneum, et al, have debris plugs that build up over many years and are more massive and densely packed and the pressures that build up are magnitudes more powerful and also contain explosive volcanic gasses so they are much more violent. Also the lava in Hawaii eruptions, we call pahoehoe (pah-hoy-hoy) is more fluid and release any gas or steam pressures easily as seen in the fountaining at Leilani Estates. So deceptively beautiful.

    if the fissures are coming open above the hole where volcano erupts and it takes thousands of years to shift from one fissure to the next the why are there over 20 fissures spread over a long distance? wouldn't it just come out one spot for a long time then slowly shift along as the plates move, i don't know, i'm not really satisfied with that explanation

    Ouch...no water? Um...ocean? Water table? Hmmm...the lava in the volcano has dropped and yes there could be water that gets to it from tubes made by the volcano itself centuries ago/decades ago. It is a danger. It may not ever happen but you can't say it won't happen. It's not likely to hurt anyone because it's in a National Park area (thank goodness for national parks).
