    Obviously Fake News. The volcano story was invented by climate-change skeptics inserted into the NASA organisation by the Trump government, in order to distract attention from the real cause of melting ice in Antarctica, which as everyone knows results from cow flatulence and the proliferation of low-mileage Chevrolet Suburbans in Paterson, New Jersey.

    If only we could harness the farts from cows the world would not need so much fossil fuels.

    I thought this one would attract the climate change deniers. What this story actually shows is the absence of some giant conspiracy to fake climate change evidence. Quelle surprise.
