They do get a lot of their energy from geo-thermal which is tied into those volcanoes, so actually they may be doing pretty well over-all. I have not researched the numbers to know if that is a significant offset relative to a volcano blowing every hundred years or so.
This will be interesting fodder though. So it releases all this CO2, but the effect of the ash in the atmosphere is probably cooling the globe, so people will claim the CO2 release actually reduced global warming.
Lots of 'fun' from both sides on this.
