National Park Service Pledges To Reduce Volcanic CO2 Emissions

Hawaii Volcanoes has committed to reduce its GHG emissions to 12.5 percent below 2006 levels by the year 2012. Some of the strategies the park has identified include: providing visitors with access to key parts of the park via two hydrogen shuttle buses, producing or purchasing approximately 15 percent of electricity needs through renewable energy means, and developing a mandatory climate change training for Park staff.

The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Criteria Air Pollutant and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory was developed to provide an understanding of park emission sources and a baseline by which future emission reductions can be measured.

Had they known how to do this 55 million years ago, they could have prevented the PETM.

Maybe they can stick a giant cork in Kilauea.

    Why don’t they start with Maui 1st? You try to hike in that caldera, but its full of stupid horses, so you basically walk through smelly horse pee and poo. But they say that’s ok, but a nice clean car, sorry we’ll have to get rid of that evil thing.
