Lovely Hawaii and its volcanoes

Oh cool, a thermal video of a Hawaiian volcano. More cool, but non thermal, video of another volcano in Hawaii. Another awesome geographical happening in you know where. Wow, the place is a hotspot for shield volcanoes, even has its own observatory.

You know that third link, of Mauna Loa, is fake, right?

Not that I'll be alive, but it will be interesting to see if Loihi forms its own island, or adds to the size of the Big Island.

Do you have a link confirming that? I just want to be sure, before asking the mods to delete or change it, thanks!

What's all this nonsense I hear about volcano monitoring?

Mauna Loa doesn't look anything like that. Plus, it's not spelled Maua Lua.

I've asked the mods to swap out that link for another, thanks for the heads up MrMoonPie!

Shouldn't you call it "Hawaii is on fire?"

Also ... Volcanos 101.

And ... why geothermal energy from the volcano is a controversy in Hawai'i ... and a "success". The sharing of mana'o continues.
