A volcano never reported probably made 1810 to 1819 so stinking cold.
Cole-Dai said climate records show that not only were 1816 — the so-called “year without a summer”— and the following years very cold, the entire decade from 1810 to 1819 was probably the coldest for at least the past 500 years.
That volcanoes could erupt at any time, even this week perhaps, adds even more uncertainty into climate modeling, except that it logically means that cold is more likely than warm.
The best defense against a volcano is a modern, technical society, with massive energy generation capacity and even more massive freedom. That defense also works wonders against colder or warmer weather.
Yet the “green” crowd persists in pushing us down a path that makes us vulnerable to climate change. I’d rather be ready for whatever happens.
