How Icelandic volcano Bardarbunga will plunge Europe into the dark ages
Its a question of when not if! 
The eruption of Icelandic volcano Bardarbunga will have sweeping repercussions for the whole of Europe, and has been pencilled in as an "outrageous" risk for 2015 by Saxo Bank
It is on our door step and is a constant threat but for some reason it is almost never mentioned in the media.
Yet again, an Icelandic volcano threatens to fracture the political landscape of Europe.
An explosion of Bardarbunga could wreak agricultural havoc, shifting weather patterns, and leading to a doubling of grain prices.
As the volcano Bardarbunga has been “quietly” erupting for more than 100 days, it could now enter “a far more intense eruption phase”, said John Hardy, head of FX strategy at Saxo Bank.
This would result in “potentially climate altering consequences for the next year or more”, he added.
The forecast is one of a series of “outrageous predictions” made by Denmark’s Saxo Bank for 2015, events that could represent under-appreciated risks over the next 12 months.
This event would be far larger than the 2010 eruption of Eyjafjallajokull, which the International Air Transport Association said cost more than 1 billion euro's More here
An event on the scale of the eruption of Laki in 1783 - another Icelandic volcano would result in clouds of ash creating dense fog all over Ireland Britain and most of Europe.
The cloud of noxious gas would settle over the continent, resulting in mass livestock deaths and the decimation of crops, air travel would be none existent and the weather would be unbearably cold.
The food scarcity that followed would eventually lead to unrest in all over Europe,
Red Warning
The volcano was assigned a "red" warning last summer.
The Icelandic Met Office description states that this signified an imminent risk of eruption, with a significant emission of ash into the atmosphere likely. Aftera large earthquake in August Bardarbunga has now been continually erupting for more than three months
The current "period of seismic unrest is one of the largest ever recorded in a volcano globally", Iceland’s own Civil Protection and Emergency Management has said.
Imagine a winter of massive storms, constant flooding, raging winds and none stop rain and snow,  you would think of the winter of 2013-14 in the U.K.
Add one more possibility into the mix a, giant cloud of volcanic ash, we would have a winter like no other.
A winter plunged into darkness, unbearable cold, massive storms, constant flooding, raging winds and none stop rain and snow.
Throw in travel disruption, flood and wind damage to houses and infrastructure, livestock deaths, the demand on the grid system and the emergency services and you have a very plausible possibility for the U.K. this winter.

A Volcano tax, much like the U.S. carbon tax, should prevent this from happening; contact your Royal family and request more taxation.
