First, they denied the existence of the coronavirus pandemic, then they opposed vaccination, considering it unnecessary and harmful. Now the eruption of Cumbre Vieja volcano last Sunday on the island of La Palma (Canary Islands) has “deniers” in Spanish social networks. They argue that the volcanic eruption was not accidental, but deliberately provoked. They think this is a conspiracy. “It’s about distracting people from dangerous vaccines.”
There are not many “volcano deniers” yet, but they provoke strong feelings and reactions on social networks. They believe that the volcanic eruption made it necessary to evacuate more than 6,000 people. people and caused serious material damage, and this is the result of the Machiavellian plan.
“The volcanic eruption could be caused by satellites with cameras with mirrored telescope lenses, focusing them on volcanic craters,” they say.
“If you look at the photos and videos, you will see that the lava is flowing from the side of the volcano, and not from the top of the volcano, as it appears to be flowing outwards. It is very strange, this eruption is not of natural origin – one negotiator wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja volcano is of a fissure type, and not of a central type (from the crater), that is, volcanic material exits along longitudinal fissures with many holes through which lava flows.
Other deniers assert that “volcanic eruptions are provoked to make us forget that electricity is getting more and more expensive.”
“Vacuna (Spanish vaccine) and Volcan (Spanish volcano), both words beginning with the letter ‘V’—coincidence? I don’t think so,” one Twitter user wrote referring to vaccine deniers.
“Ignorance becomes a social value and even takes the place of moral superiority,” Barcelona-based Canadian scientist Catherine El Equier said in an interview with El Mundo newspaper last Saturday. – Anti-thought is in vogue.
