"Huge volcanic eruptions: time to prepare."
Large magnitude eruptions have the potential to have both huge regional impacts close to the volcano and potentially catastrophic impacts on a global scale, such as abrupt cooling of the climate by up to a several degrees. The likelihood of such an eruption 1 in 6 this century, yet despite this fact, the world is ill-prepared for an eruption of this magnitude. The potential consequences of a large eruption will be discussed, along with what could be done to mitigate such an event now and in the future, including volcano geoengineering and the ethics around such activities.
