What are natural events being tagged into the global alarmism room?
They are more alarming than global warming!
At first I was just surprised by how much the top of the volcano from above appeared to be an asshole spewing it's contents.

Given the nature of digestive decay into methane gass we wouldnt be able to live without being able to fart.  Simularly would the Earth be able to exist without being able to releasing its gasses?  Might it just explode?  In this context how does one distinguish the natural processes of an animal body from those of the Earth?

The human/animal biological process which produces gasses is a breakdown of other organic material.  I don't think the volcano has organic material except CO2. It does spew H2S & other nauseous gases.  Volcanoes don't produce a significant amount of CO2. They contribute to cooling via particulate matter reflecting the Sun's rays with a net decrease in warming due to the cooling effect.  This article on Where the Plants get their Carbon could be related to your question.  Essentially the food chain depends on CO2 in the air.  The release of gasses into the air, including steam,  is a by-product of the tectonic plates bumping about on a molten core of Earthma; not really a digestive breakdown process. Your analogy, while interesting, is full of seth.
