Reykjavik - (Lava Palaver): "It's a mean little sucker!" is how scientists at the UN Volcano and Caldera Reseach Unit described the gigantic space vacuum cleaner designed by Al 'An Incontinent Truth' Gore.
The sky pump is being put through its paces above the Eyjafjallajokull volcano in a bid to suck up billions of cubic litres of volcano shit.
Strapped onto a state-of-the-art Russian Tupolev Tu-666 freight carrier the massive suction machine is about to hoover up all the carbon blanketing much of northern Europe skies.
The idea is to then inject all the harvested debris into carbon neutral places like the hull of the Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior III and other irrelevant marine do-gooders "until they sink".
The Altair Voyager is my kinda Chevron tanker!
