Quote:"A project to drill deep into the heart of a 'supervolcano' in southern Italy has finally received the green light, despite claims that the drilling would put the population of Naples at risk of small earthquakes or an explosion. Yesterday, Italian news agency ANSA quoted project coordinator Giuseppe De Natale of Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology as saying that the office of Naples mayor Luigi de Magistris has approved the drilling of a pilot hole 500 meters deep. The project’s organizers originally intended to bore a 4-kilometer-deep well in the area of the caldera late in 2009, but the plan was put on hold by then-mayor Rosa Russo Iervolino after scientists expressed concerns about the risks."

Some fellers just don't get it I
reckon.
If them geologists saw a hornets nest
outside their lab, they'd poke it with a
pointy stick to see if it was dangerous.
Did they learn them that in school? chuckle.gif

There is a theory that pressure can be relieved by doing this kind of thing, guess they just have to give it a try. 13.gif There are 3 possibilities:
1) It goes as planned, pressure is relieved.
2) it causes an earthquake from hell.
3) we reminisce about where Italy used to be on the map.
Important to remember it's shaped like a boot to hold all that shït. chuckle.gif

I think it might be time to deliver a little freedom and democracy to Italy.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
