A bright side to everything

While the European aviation industry is losing around US$200M a day during the Icelandic eruption, there is a bright side.
the 344,109 tons of CO2 emitted every day by aircraft in the European aviation industry has been cut down by 60%

Everything has a silver lining.

Meanwhile, that most useless remnant of the British monarchy in New Zealand, our Governor General, is doing his best to replace the lost carbon usage by flying half-way round the world looking for a way to Poland. Along with her indoors and his batman.

And just think of all the fuel we save. Peak Oil is now put off a few more years if this keeps up.

I wonder if the Volcano's contribution requires that the entire world turn off the lights for 100 years? I'm just waiting for a Greenie to suggest it...
