'Scientists to drill 13,000ft into active volcano in test that could cause earthquake'

It was almost a year ago that we started posting newspaper reports about plans to drill in the Campi Flegrei. And now the story is back. I saw it this morning in The Telegraph, and then realised that Erik Klemetti of the excellent Eruptions blog had already caught the story (first reported yesterday in Nature) and expressed his frustration about journalistic fear-mongering. Read Erik's post for a scientist's perspective on the work in the Campi Flegrei, which is apparently due to start next month.
