These guys making such assertions never show their calculations.
From looking at the records, it seems that man’s contribution to the climate has prevented an ice age.
Naturally, some sort of limit will be impressed on our population eventually. I suspect that there is going to be a very bad world wide famine soon — it won’t be massively deadly in the developed world, but China, Africa, and India will be decimated. It may be enough here to wipe the Constitution away though.

Sheesh, bleeping Einstein here!
Makes sense, there are a lot more humans than there are volcanoes.
So they are ignoring 70% of Earth's surface?
And I read that the CO2 released by coal seam fires in China are greater than that.
I stopped reading here. The production of cement releases CO2 into the air, as limestone is calcined to produce calcium oxide. However, once the cement is made into concrete, it absorbs The same amount of CO2 as was release in its production. The net effect on the atmosphere is exactly zero. Granted, it may take months or even a few years for the absorption process to complete, but that doesn't alter the fact that the net CO2 addition to the atmosphere is zero.
You got that right, Civ.
And carbon dioxide it a trace gas these days and has been throughout the Holocene. All the sewers of all the cities on Earth, and all the hog farms in Iowa and North Carolina, put together can't compete with one volcano's blast of sulfur dioxide.
None of them can compare with the allegorical B.S. in this one ruinous article.
Which story will be parroted by your local newscast tonight. This one or the latest studies showing the solar cycles and the interplanetary magnetic field have apparently begun showing a weakening magnitude pattern, perhaps preceding a new Maunder Minimum and Little Ice Age?
