Thoughts on exploding volcanoes

To the editor:

I read the article about volcanoes in the March 18-31 issue of NH Business Review (“A modest proposal: volcanoes”) and had to read it again, as I thought it was a spoof. The second reading convinced me of it.

The people of Oklahoma have experienced dramatically increased earthquake activity that they attribute to fracking. I expect an atomic bomb would be stronger than fracking.

As far as the value of inducing volcanoes to explode is concerned, just ask the people in Pompeii and Herculaneum about that. The airlines might have a thought or two as well.
