Two Russian volcanoes erupting at the same time

 Shiveluch and Kluchevskaya

28 Oct 10 - Two volcanoes on Russia's far-eastern Kamchatka Peninsula - Shiveluch and Kluchevskaya - are now spewing massive ash clouds up to 33,000 feet (10 km)  into the air, disrupting flights and blanketing a nearby town with a thick layer of ash.
33,000 feet high is just shy of the stratosphere.)

According to the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry's branch in Kamchatka, the ash has reduced visibility in the Russian town of Ust-Kamchatsk to a few feet.

Why do I keep mentioning volcanoes?

Because ice ages correlate with huge increases in volcanic activity.

Here's a quote from Not by Fire but by Ice:

"Polarity reversals, equinoctial precession, and ice ages, all march to the same drummer. As do extinctions, new species appearance, volcanism, and rising land. Toss in the specter of massive floods, 30-story tsunami (tsunami is both singular and plural), and radioactivity falling on your head, and you've got the picture."

Just look at the last three magnetic reversals (kya stands for thousands of years ago):

34 kya - Lake Mungo magnetic reversal. Intensive volcanism. 

23 kya - Mono Lake magnetic reversal. Major volcanism. The Mono Lake event actually straddles a layer of ash (Liddicoat).

11.5 kya - Gothenburg magnetic reversal. Worldwide volcanism (Lamb). Mexican volcanism Afirmly@ dated at 11,580 " 70 years (Street-Perrott). Germany=s West Eiffel fields erupt (Lamb). Mount St. Helens ash interlayered with Lake Missoula flood deposits, indicating simultaneous events (Chernicoff). Glacier Peak, Washing­ton, erupts (Dawson). Alaskan volcanism of tremendous proportions. In Alaska and Siberia, ash lies interspersed through the piles of mammoth bones them­selves. (Hibben). Mt. Katla, Iceland, erupts (Dawson).

I fear that we are seeing a similar increase in volcanic activity right now.
