Darwin Airport shut as volcanic ash looms in far off Australia. Pictured from a passenger plane: Menacing 12-mile-high ash cloud looms over Indonesia’s ‘Mountain of Spirits’ after volcano erupts | Mail Online: this is a major eruption. Note also how ‘dirty’ it is. In just a few days, sun sets will be much redder and midday sun on a clear day will be set in a pale blue sky as a silken screen of fine dust will filter the sunlight.
The far more dangerous and much bigger volcano, Mt. Tambora lies only a short ways to the west.
My father’s book is out of print, alas, but can be bought used is anyone is interested in how this latest eruption will affect our sunrises and sunsets:
I remember how my father started his volcano study. Earth news: Great Eruptions Have Very Far Flung Effects is where I describe this event. Yes, great eruptions (throwing dust more than 6 miles high) do change the climate of the entire earth. The bigger the eruption, the greater the effect. During this insane debate over the climate, we have everyone all over the map about volcanoes.
Mostly in denial, I would suggest. Both the ‘denialists’ and the ‘global warming fanatics’ are trying to avoid understanding the fundamental effect volcanoes have on the climate. I fear that Yellowstone eruptions which began…amazingly…ahem…right when our Ice Ages began is a contributing factor in the cooling of the planet over time.
In between that series of massive, gigantic eruptions, the planet struggles to warm up again. A new eruption can happen any time now, incidentally. Earth news: Big, Bad Summer Thunderstorms Caused By Volcanoes and incidentally, increasing solar activity does this, too. I have noticed this year how we have not had all that much electrical storms compared to say, 2000.
I was already planning to put away a lot of firewood this summer. This morning, I was working on a road up the mountain so I can get to the trees up there for this purpose. Well, this in now going to be in high gear this summer. This is sheer survival since I can’t afford any other form of heating! I pity everyone else because Obama is going to shut down a host of coal burning plants this summer in the name of ‘global warming’ which will be a horror show when people see their energy bills shoot upwards as generators of electricity can’t keep up with the demand due to extreme cold and heavy snow.
This future catastrophe is obvious. Maybe it won’t happen but I am certain it will happen. Meltdown Update : No Change In Arctic Sea Ice Over The Last 19 Years | Real Science
There IS a change! Note how in 1995, there was ice in the Arctic but NONE in Siberia or Canada. Today, there is a lot of snow on the ground in both countries as well as Alaska. It is significantly colder. Be wary! Europe: your nice winter will be replaced with Putin-levels of severe cold next winter.
