HILO, Hawaii (AP) — The first eruption in 38 years of Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano, is drawing visitors to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, which is open 24 hours a day. “The viewing has been spectacular,” especially at night and before sunrise, park spokesperson Jessica Ferracane said.Visitors to the park are currently able to witness two eruptive events: the glow from Kilauea’s lava lake and lava from a Mauna Loa fissure.“This is a rare time where we have two eruptions happening simultaneously,” Ferracane said. Mauna Loa last erupted in 1984. The current eruption is its 34th since written history began in 1843.

Climate Change is a wide ranging topic, and encompasses many disciplines. It affects everyone on the planet in both similar and unique ways. Our goal at Global Warming Planet is to gather current news, by the hour, from diverse regions of the world. People are talking about global warming and how it affects them in their daily lives. You'll find important journalism here on topics such as global temperatures, extreme weather, sea level rise, flooding, fires, health impacts, droughts, glaciation, polar regions and species extinction. Underlying all of these issues is the science being done by dedicated researchers worldwide. We also gather the political, legal and social justice issues that impact us nationally and regionally. This wouldn't be complete without the solutions, so we strive to provide current information on the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Renewables are on a steady rise worldwide, and include exciting topics such as solar photovoltaics, wind generation both onshore and offshore, biofuels, wave action, and battery storage. Last but not least are the things we can do as individuals. To highlight a few, consider electric cars, transportation, food production, and energy efficiency and conservation of energy in our personal lives.
