Helens produces between 500 and 1,000 tons a day of carbon dioxide, Gerlach estimates.Mount Pelée (French: Montagne Pelée, "Bald Mountain") is an active volcano on the northern tip of the French overseas department of Martinique in the Caribbean.It is a stratovolcano, its volcanic cone composed of layers of volcanic ash and hardened lava.It departs every 20 minutes between 5.30am-12.10am for the central train station (1).It takes half an hour for a fare of €1 and stops at various points en route.
