When nature destroys and then rebuilds: the natural recovery of Mt. Pinatubo, Philippines
After 500 years of being dormant, the Pinatubo volcano became active again in 1991, producing one of the most violent volcanic eruptions of the last century. Its effects were felt all over the world: a layer of sulfuric acid surrounded the entire globe, temperatures dropped significantly and the ozone layer suffered extensive damage. Today we can see how the area has gradually recovered its natural aspect after the destruction caused by the volcano’s eruption.
The evidence is everywhere, but some people just can't handle it.
