“If you look at the photos and videos, the volcano rises from a slope and not from the top, which is where the lava from a balcony is supposed to come from,” writes a user on Twitter to the astonishment of hundreds of people.
At the moment there are not many, but enough so that have aroused reactions of outrage and mockery on social media. Are the “volcano deniers”, and they believe that the recent eruption of the La Palma volcano, which already leaves thousands of evacuees and numerous damages, is fruit of a machined plan.
“I am an open-minded person who has seen almost everything, but the deniers of the volcanoes have caught me by surprise,” admits a user in a tweet in which she compiles captures of several messages that deny the natural origin of the eruption.
And the truth is that the arguments they offer to defend the idea that it has been caused intentionally are, to say the least, curious. “It can be provoked with the mirror satellites pointing to the crater of the volcano”, claims one user.
Another person even assures that “they have caused the eruption so that we forget that the kilowatt is touching its historical maximum today.”
They have caused the eruption of the volcano 🌋 so that we forget that the kilowatt is touching its historical maximum today (and yesterday, and the day before yesterday, and the other, and the other …)

The networks have not been slow to respond to this type of messages, mostly with humor. “Volcano deniers are called ‘tontolavas,” wrote one user.
