"Ultimately anything we build on the volcano will be consumed by Kilauea..." Hawaiian volcanoes are not like any images you may have formed of the destruction of Pompeii by the unexpected eruption of Vesuvius in 79 CE. When they erupt, the destruction moves slowly. But their lava just keeps on pushing inexorably toward the sea. The video is very much worth your time.
