A story about the discovery of the world's deepest volcano vent is the most read story of the day today — by far. It came from The Associated Press.
Good for science, and the comments show that people interested in this stuff are reading it. A couple early comments wondered why this was the most popular story, and the rest of the comments seem to answer that.
And they have not resorted to simply blaming global warming on this and turning into a simple-minded political debate.
I think some of the negative comments were deleted out after people clicked the report abuse button. It's nice to see what people are reading and it's nice to know some people out there have a thirst for knowledge.
But as the father of a 5 year old, I also know that volcanoes are simply cool.
