Underwater Volcano Could Destroy Italy 'At Any Time'

The ironic part? They don't blame global warming.
EUROPE'S largest undersea volcano could disintegrate and unleash a tsunami that would engulf southern Italy "at any time", a prominent vulcanologist has warned.

The Marsili volcano, which is bursting with magma, has "fragile walls" that could collapse, Enzo Boschi told the leading daily Corriere della Sera.

"It could even happen tomorrow," Prof Boschi, president of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology said

"Our latest research shows that the volcano is not structurally solid, its walls are fragile, the magma chamber is of sizeable dimensions," he said.

"All that tells us that the volcano is active and could begin erupting at any time."
Of course this could be, like hysterical "climate change" claims, complete nonsense.
"While the indications that have been collected are precise, it is impossible to make predictions.

"The risk is real but hard to evaluate."
In other words, check back in a million years.
