(Natural News) As the global warming parade eagerly waits in anticipation for Earth’s temperatures to rise, a group of scientists warn that one of the world’s largest super volcanoes could erupt, setting off a chain of events that would actually cause wide scale cooling of the Earth’s climate.
Centuries ago, the volcanic caldera known as Campi Flegrei erupted just west of Naples, sending tons of ash into the atmosphere. This ash, rich in sulfur dioxide, blocked solar radiation, causing global temperatures to fall. The caldera is active today. Pressure is building as the super volcano nears eruption.
If the super volcano were to erupt, it could potentially quell the hysteria of global warming alarmists. An eruption of this size would allow global temperatures to fall naturally, letting the people know that they are not in control. For example, when the volcano at Mt. Tambora erupted in 1815, the greater vicinity experienced a severe cold spell the following year. All these natural disasters, weather events, and temperature cycles are out of people’s hands, despite their delusions of control.
A Massachusetts Institute of Technology study showed that volcanic ash not only blocks solar radiation, it also curbs the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, causing a grander cooling effect across the planet. The scientists used laser radar, balloons, and ground based measurements to analyze the impact of vaporized particles from volcanic eruptions. They found that just a dozen small volcanic eruptions since the…Read More
