Is Eyjafjallajoekull the Joe Cool of volcanoes or what? Is this the first volcano to have a net negative CO2 emission?
Usually I don’t like infographics which contain very little information. This one is thought-provoking, though. Here’s “Planes or volcano?” with a hat tip to Scruffy Dan.
(Note: Most Icelandic volcanoes are called Joe Cool. “jokulhlaup” (pronounced approximately yokel-hoop if I recall correctly) is Icelandic for a sub-ice volcano. This is pretty serious business in Iceland, as if they didn’t have enough problems these days.)

Update: I got some twitter notoriety for suggesting that Ejfjljkl might be the first “carbon negative volcano” but Eater of Sun/Heliophage/Oliver Morton convincingly argues otherwise.
