Are underwater volcanoes bad for the environment?

    Well, they are a natural part of the environment.  In fact, underwater volcanos create islands.  They account for 75% of the planet’s magma output, and as enough of that magma cools and and solidifies over itself, it will form an island.  This is how the Hawaiian Islands were formed, and one of their volcanoes, Mauna Kea, is actually the tallest peak in the world – it’s just mostly submerged.
