Tonight on 360°, breaking news on the Iceland volcano. New details on why the plan to open more airspace tomorrow could be in jeopardy.

    Mother nature is trying to remind people that humans were meant to adapt to her and not the other way around.

    The volcano is a good reminder of how far we have come, technologically, and yet how far we need to go. We can go to the moon, but can't manage a volcano.

    @ oAnn-Royalton OH

    What an excellent suggestion. Gary Tuchman should absolutely write a book. Given the unusual stories he has covered, i would love to hea about the back story of each story too.

    I know i would most certainly buy a book by Mr. Tuchman!

    I'd rather be six days on a ship crossing the Atlantic than six days in an airport.

    I was in college working on a Geography and Environmental degree when St. Helen's blew. I wanted to go there so badly to see it in person. I didn't get to go, but I'm still fascinated.

    I'm beginning to wonder if this won't change air travel in and to Europe for a long time.

    Will farmers be able to plant in this? Would the food be safe. One meteorologist said this morning some of cloud was in most northern tip of Canada.

    @Karoline, LA

    I heard on this show last week that the volcano could keep erupting for two more years.

    Travelers may Have to return to ocean liners to travel back and forth.

    I don't know what can be done for perishable trade items.

    Mike, formerly from Syracuse and Emily,
    I remember thsi time I was in old school, That was May 18th 1980, When St Helens erupted so early Sunday morning, I was learning to watch tv about Volcano erupted at 8:30 AM.

    I wonder what the "carbon footprint" of that volcano will be!
    Humans are 'minor' compared to Mother Nature!

    I can't believe that Gary went up in a helicopter like that! He is such a dedicated journalist! His descriptions are always so vivid.

    Be careful Gary!

    Hello, David, Isabel, Gabriela, Nancy, Kim, Dulcie, Dodie, Devin, Nichole, Mike, A. Smith, Megan, Casey, everyone..

    Gary Tuchman does the best stories! The pictures of the ashes from the volcano are amazing!

    Gary, stay safe in that ash fall.

    April 19, 2010 at 10:05 pm |
  32. Emily

    Does anyone know what the side effects are of this ash? (from a similar volcano somewhere else?)

    April 19, 2010 at 10:05 pm |
  33. Sharon Hastings

    Good evening everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. Good to be with all of you. That volcano is really wreaking havoc to our environment and our economy. Poor Gary Tuchman. It seems he is either neck deep in flooding, blowing away in a hurricane, buried in snow, and now in ash.

    I just wonder if people should really consider crossing the Atlantic the old fashioned way? By ship.

    Hi everyone,

    Wow-Gary got a cool gig. And poor Iceland. First the financial meltdown now this! I wonder if other nations will try to sue Goldman Sachs?

  44. Gloria, Brooklyn, NY

    Really Tom, do you really have to get up close and personal with the volcano eruption?

    My flight from Toronto to Gatwick is rescheduled for tomorrow night. I'm torn about whether to fly! Is it safe?
