Short Film Friday! When Nature Throws you Lemons

Sean Stiegemeier makes lemonade. Last Saturday's eruption of Grimsvotn sent many travelers into a panic that it would cause a return to last year's aviation bottleneck caused by its volcanic cousin, Eyjafjallajokull. Costs to the aviation industry from the 2010 eruption's ash cloud are estimated at $1.7 billion US. A good reminder that in a global village we're all potentially vulnerable to the grumblings of an ever changing planet.

(This week's film is best appreciated fullscreen, with speakers on high!)
