Why Don't We Throw Trash in Volcanoes?
\\okay humans would make a lot of garbage and we don't have any perfect solutions for what to do with it so instead of just putting it under the ground one would just throw it into the volcano's well as convenient as burning our trash into oblivion might sound a couple major reasons to consider for one thing sending all that trash to the nearest active volcano could get pretty expensive especially because a lot of places are thousands of kilometers away from a volcano while most cities send their trash tens or hundreds of kilometers to landfills subsidies also burn a lot of their trash generation use that heat to make electricity so electric bills could go up if we started using volcano stay at a different place is already handle trashed differently so why don't cities near volcanoes just use them as big Simon trash piles well cost isn't the only problem here volcanoes aren't usually the bubbling pits of exposed lava that you see in movies and cartoons any volcanoes just look like now ... hills with a crater near the top if the creators are filled with anything liquid water is more common than a lava lake so you would have to wait for those kinds of volcanoes to erupt in the drop your trash in which it is bit credibly dangerous lots of those eruptions can be pretty violent or you could try to drill down into a volcano's magma chamber where the molten rock sits under lots of pressure until eruption given how hard it is to predict what exactly will flip a volcano switch drilling down into that super pressurized chamber or shooting trash into the magma probably are great ideas he there are other kinds of volcanoes like kiloware in Hawaii have pretty constant calm lava flows even though slow moving lava might seem like a safer and easy garbage there's another big issue clumps of organic matter like food scraps don't just burn when they had lava they exploded very sadly there is little research into why these explosions happened but there are plenty of experiments and YouTube videos that show pretty clearly that they do which is not mean that you should like give it a try for fun most likely explanation is that any water in the trash immediately boils when it hits them 0 degree molten lava that steam expands forcing the trash and lava out of the way to create an explosive fountain and Rocco we don't know for sure so get on IT science what we do know is that with your average American generating a Cup kilograms of trash a day that would be a lot of exploding lava not to mention the stuff that probably wouldn't explode like plastic tends to give off dangerous fumes when burned which is a whole other problem so even if you live near an active volcano and even if there is a lot at the service and even if it sounds kinda cool don't use it as your garbage disposal a controlled science experiment or 2 may be fine but tons of trash creating noxious lava fountains thanks to our patron patrons for asking if you would like to learn more about trash you can check out our video on how we dealt with it over time 100 percent without volcanoes //
