'An explosive eruption large enough to cause huge numbers of deaths, alter the climate and poison the atmosphere occurring by the end of the century...The ash cloud thrown out from this eruption reached more than 26 miles (43km) into the atmosphere and triggered temperature changes that led to widespread famine and epidemics. The summer following the Tambora eruption is known as 'the year without summer'.
'Eruptions through 1990s and 2000s have contributed to warming 'pause'
Global temperatures plateaued since 1998 after rapid warming in 1990s
The findings mean models predicting climate change need to be revised'
'Back to the drawing board again for climate models...A newly discovered mechanism for cooling the planet - potentially, according to its discoverers, more significant even than the well-known chilling effects of volcanic eruptions - has now been further investigated. The mechanism in question is the action of difficult-to-study atmospheric molecules known as 'Criegee intermediates'
'So while volcanoes certainly may cause a minor drop in global temperature, the claim of Richard Muller and the BEST folks that there are “abrupt dips that match the emissions of known explosive volcanic eruptions” is simply not true. There are abrupt dips, but they don't match up with the volcanic eruptions'
Climate Depot Note: This is progress! Warmists are finally acknowledging that CO2 is not all powerful. Reality check from Prof. Philip Stott: 'Climate change is governed by hundreds of factors, or variables, and the very idea that we can manage climate change predictably by understanding and manipulating at the margins one politically-selected factor (CO2), is as misguided as it gets'
