So often the scope and grandeur of natural events get lost in video. Two dimensions and small screens shrink mindbogglingly huge natural phenomena, and the world seems a much more in our control than it ought. I live near Mt. St. Helens. I remember 1980. Video didn’t transmit the devastation well but a trip to Windy Ridge to look at the burnt out car did. Then there are moments like the one about two minutes into this video. A brave and foolhardy man stands on the edge of a boiling lava lake, and for a minute you understand how ridiculously small we are.
