Can you really predict a volcanic eruption from a bubbling pool of mud? Some people from the town of Paterno, Sicily believe that this mud volcano can predict eruptions of nearby Mt. Etna. Experts say that this isn't true, but the pits of gurgling mud still serve as a popular tourist attraction.

What kind of video is this? "Oh people here believe that this puddle can predict volcano eruptions. Turns out it can't. It is 70 degree fahrenheit." The end. Real bang up job you did there.

WEll... Like most logical thing you could do, is start with scientific hypothesis: (That If we take enough logging data of 'active pressure being released'..etc to see aswell/create algorithmic data and compare with similarities in the data spikes with spikes in Eruptions/Pressure-Shift Readings..etc??

I'm Sure Suspicious0bervers Youtube channel can benefit from such instruments of data.

how about bubbling pit in sidoarjo(lapindo), Indonesia??

I doubt it as well because mud and straight volcanoes are different viscosity and water concentration meaning the relevant explosivity is different for the two volcanic systems but that doesn't forbid the idea that they both share the same magma chamber

Oh, National Geographic is targeted for US Americans/Canadians? I thought it would be more of a international thing. :/
