    Good Morning to all of you out there.

    Sounds like quite the plan.

    Then again things rarely work out so simply.

    Doc seems kind of gullible. He’s not going to check this guy’s story out? After the Earth 2 fiasco you’d think he’d be more careful.

    Nice flat screen TV on the wall…

    Doc, please don’t do it, he’s up to nogood. Don’t trust a guy with more hair and a shorter beard than you have, he’s Mr. Nogood.

    Oh please. The science equivalent of a Nigerian 419 scam. It fairly stinks of it.

    Can we please move this conversation forward? Two panels a day and very little dialog in each panel makes for a story that moves as fast as a snail crawling through molasses.

    Presumably Doc Wonmug will be stopping off in Moo first to pick up our favorite caveman, then we will see what can possibly go wrong with the mission.

    What does that device, really do?

    Great episode today!
    It’s time for the calvary (Alley Oop) to arrive!
    .
    And where will the colonists go?
    What will they do?
    What will they see?
    Hmm, my post reminds me of a Dr Seuss story, but mayby it’s just me.

    “climate patterns”? a volcanic eruption is not a climate pattern. the aftermath of an eruption can have a short term impact on the climate, as was seen in 1816, but it is a singular event, not a pattern.
    .
    something is fishy here, or maybe it’s just another dumb storyline from carole.

    A great summer morning to the Benders and the readers of Alley Oop. So the device will gather and analyze Data on all of the area’s atmospheric conditions. That’s a lot of claim
    for a handheld data device. All the areas— what specific areas? If there was a satellite or even a weather balloon
    floating in the air, I could understand the claim. As it is, I would assume that Doc will have to visit multiple areas in Switzerland to gather data needed. How does it analyze?
    Is there a miniature lab to analyze air and soil samples?
    the Mars rover had one. Doc needs to ask. What he is being asked to do can be handled by a robot, or even a monkey.

    I AGREE WITH TACOBEAR, THIS GUY LOOKS TO BE BAD NEWS. IF DOC IS SMART HE WILL STAY CLEAR OF THIS GUY. BUT YOU KNOW HE WON’T, SO WE WILL JUST HAVE TO GO ALONG ON THIS RIDE WITH THE “BENDER’S”.

    YOW! depends on what’s in the dust and how much there is of it.
    .
    There is nothing local about a volcanic eruption. They aren’t talking about a little pressure relieving dribbler. They’re talking about a blast 10 X atomic bomb force 15 miles high that sweeps debris around the planet 7 X before dissipation. If it is an island or underwater blast the shockwaves send out tsunamis that have no trouble crossing the entire Pacific.

    Krakatoa threw sulpur into the air that stayed up for 5 years. Great sunsets, and also temp decrease 1 degree for whole planet. Tambora debris dropped entire planet temp 5 degree.
    .
    p.s. The Gobi desert is teutonic caused. No vents (volcanos) were big enough to relieve the stress of plates crashing into each other, and pushing up mountains too tall for the rain clouds to get over. Sahara maybe something that jiggled earth’s orbit setting off a chain reaction with atmosphere, plant, and water cycle.

    @gozar

    Checking out the guy’s story could add ten years to the Bender’s story. Doc needs to be gullible to move this along at lightning speed.
