We all know that we are fighting a war against time to save our planet. Ecologists are warning us every day that our planet is dying, and it is all our fault. We hear stories about the rise of the ocean levels due to climate change, we read about PM10 and PM2.5 particles in the atmosphere, about floating islands of trash in the middle of our oceans, about holes in the ozone layers, about deforestation, about the rise of the average temperatures in the atmosphere.

Nature is absolutely unpredictable. You can never be too sure what a single tiny movement might do to cause a shift in the whole ecosystem. You can’t predict an earthquake similar as to how you can not predict the weather. You can guess that it’s going to rain based on the ominous dark clouds, but you may never know if a wind sweeps in and blows them all away.

There are also a lot of mysterious occurrences in nature. It doesn’t mean that they are mythical or otherworldly, it just means that we haven’t got the technology available yet to understand and explain them.

We must never forget that our planet is and has been active ever since it was created. The first shape our planet took was as a big piece of molten hot rock floating into space. The freezing temperatures in the vast space cooled it down slightly, allowing the surface to be formed, but deep inside, there is still an enormous amount of trapped heat and energy sizzling beneath the surface. The Earth’s core is an endless amount of energy and it is responsible for keeping our surface warm enough for us to live on it.

The Earth’s insides aren’t all solid. There is a viscous matter called magma that literally flows beneath the surface and is perpetually looking for a way out. Once it reaches the Earth’s atmosphere it becomes the fiery orange lava we see erupting from volcanoes. It bubbles up to the surface and hardens gradually to form volcanic rocks. These sorts of rocks are extremely rich in minerals and are ideal when growing all sorts of crops on them.

However, from time to time, the amount of lava that surfaces is too much, so much so that it creates an eerie river of fire burning through everything that crosses its path. Check out this insane fast-flowing river of lava on the Big Island of Hawaii. How crazy is that? Although volcano eruptions aren’t that big of a deal in Hawaii because many of the volcanoes there are actually active, the May 2018 eruption of the Kilauea volcano wreaked havoc among the population. It caused a great deal of damage and financial loss. Kilauea had been in an eruption cycle since 1983 which has lasted for the past 35 years so scientists aren’t sure yet if these past few eruptions are a part of the old cycle or a brand new one.
