The Chartist: Eruption disruption

That unpronounceable volcano, by numbers

Clouds of ash, transport chaos and an outraged Jeremy Clarkson: just some of the fallout caused by the erupting Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull over the past week or so. On the plus side, there have been some really nice photos.

The Chartist - this week by US-based designer Gavin Potenza - puts a few of the numbers in perspective. Amidst all the trouble, it looks as if Greenpeace have something to smile about. JC must be thrilled.
