  1. Around 8.5 million people live at the bottom of that.

    Pyroclastic flow, anyone?

    • “Around 2:30 a.m. local time on Monday, April 18, 2016, giant Popocatépetl volcano – Mexico’s most active volcano – erupted again in an especially explosive way. The videos on this page show the eruption, which spewed ash 2 miles (3 km) into the sky, and hurled hot rocks and lava upward. The ash began drifting to the east.”

      The eruption was beautiful but not very strong.
      By the size of the plume I believe it was a VEI 2-3.
      We need a VEI-5-7 to have some sizable effect on climate.
      I’m expecting that to happen due to the extended solar minimum we’re entering now.
      Pinatubo is almost 30 years in the past already; a new large one *could happen*.
