Why not drop a bomb on the lava dome?
1) We like big kablooies.
2) Mt. St. H is a long way from everywhere. If it blew up (“Big time,” says
Dick) the only people that would be affected would be the media people and a
few dozen news vans, the tourists sitting in lawn chairs who enjoy a big
kablooie too much, and an unmanned drone taking air samples.
3) Bombs cost money.
re: Blowing a hole in Mount Saint Helens with a bunker
The answer is simple: Exploding bombs aren’t nearly as
cool as Level 5 volcanic kablooeys.
This officially concludes this discussion — until I win the Nobel Prize for my brilliant suggestion.
