If we sacrifice James Hanson into the volcano, will Gaia be appeased?

So the next question... “What caused the increase in volcanic eruptions....” Was Hillary stomping mad!!

Makes sense. Volcanic activity is a new phenomenon on the planet. Never mind Yellowstone, Taupo, etc.

Oh for ...

Do you mean to tell me that;
one, There IS a global warming pause, and
two, Volcanoes have caused it ?

What causes volcanoes ?

I thought Man caused the warming and the warming caused EVERYthing.

So man must'a caused the volcanoes .... that gave pause to the warming ...


How DID these people get beyond 20 years old ?
They should be dead from touching doorknobs, or breathing second hand smoke, or smelling someone's perfume, or working in an office with florescent lights, or ...

Didn’t Kerry just blame the volcanic eruption in Indonesia on global warming?

As usual having it both ways. Global warming causes volcanic eruptions which causes cessation of global warming.

The intended unintended consequence.

Man causes global warming. Global warming causes volcanoes. Volcanoes stop or slow down global warming.

Hence, the cure for global warming is create global warming.

My argument this weekend on global warming was, Africa is starving because of global warming, therefore people with money are sending the global warming to Africa.

If we built desalinization plants along the African coastline, and with that water planted more trees to soak up the CO2, Africans will no longer starve.

My liberal neighbor called me a racist.

Ironically, for the MMGW crowd, the crisis now is that the warming crisis has stopped. They should claim victory and start seeking funding to research how to control the climate since they’ve done so well to solve the warming problems by causing more. Volcanic eruptions.

And the increased volcanic activity is do to manmade activity, probably fracking. /s

So--the warming caused by man's Co2 emissions is paused because of nature's CO2 emissions?

The drought is going to kill off the cattle so we need the volcanoes to stop the deep freeze caused by the lack of cow farts!

What about all the’ greenhouse gasses’ volcanos spew out?

Wouldn’t that cause accelerated global warming?

I though that the whole global warming/climate change thing was responsible for the increased sea ice this year, oh and that asteroid a while back was hooked to the weather somehow too, wasn't it?

And, unless I'm mistaken, all of these calamities of course...

Actually, the first question is: "Was there an increase in volcanic eruptions?"

Second question: "If there was an increase, how much of an increase occurred?"

AGW alarmists have told that the excess heat is 'hiding' in the ocean depths. Did the volcanic eruptions cause that to happen and, if so, how?

One of the problems is they are going to run into eruptions in the 20th century - about 63 altogether, including Pinaubo in 1991 (the largest since Krackatows), which were not considered in their previous warming models - modeles which they say alreaqy agreed with warmning before this “pause”.

Then they will have to explain why all those volcanic eruptions DID NOT “cool” the rate of warming B4 the twenty first century, when according to their scientific calculations of the “heating affects of atmospheric CO2” factored into those same models already presumed a “forced” rate of CO2 caused warming that they say the models and the history B4 this “pause” agree with.

They will try to have it both ways.

So volcanos spewing millions of tons of CO2 and other “GreenHouse” gases into the atmosphere are causing global cooling?

Yes.

You see, when HUMANS are responsible for releasing those gases, they cause global warming.

When natural events are responsible for releasing those gases, it actually stops global warming.

Apparently, they are MAGIC gases.

Wait a minute. I'm still trying to get my head around the "warming is hidden in the ocean depths" "scientific" explanation of the pause/hiatus/drop in warming. Now its the volcanoes ? Climate "science" is beginning to make numerology look respectable.

So the volcanos that don’t cause global warming (because they don’t spew enough CO2, not as much as man) DO cause global cooling (because they do spew enough light reflective “particles” to cool the earth).

Please. No, really please tell me another one.

Really, don’t these guys get tired of trying to make this “mankind=evil” thing work? It’s like all the contortions science, or really men of science went through to make the geocentric theory work. Or make the theory of “ether” work.

Sometimes guys, you just gotta say, “you know what? This theory is crap”.

Here are a few more for them to answer.

What caused the ice ages?

Why is our magnetosphere loosing it’s field strength?

Why does our sun go through solar max and revers polarity every 11 years?

Why has the earth reversed polarity so many times in the past?

Why is the magnetic north pole representing the top of the axis of the earth’s core slip against the crust and travel around the geographic north pole?

Why does the magnetic north pole and the earth’s core axis have a daily wobble of approximately 85 kilometers per day as it traverses across Canada? And, why does this wobble directly correlate to the peak solar activity?

Why were there active volcanoes in Arizona(north of Flagstaff) about 1200 years ago but not now?

The list goes on.... but not for emotional decision makers as they will shoot any messenger that asks questions of which the answers might bring facts to the surface that are contrary to their predisposed opinion.

One the easier ways to dispute the moronic, idiotic and (put your own thesauras word here, if you like) idea of the “hockey stick” is the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines in 1991.

(This may be in the Independence UK article, but I could not follow the link.)

It destroyed the Clark US Air Force base. It decreased temperatures WORLD WIDE for three to four years.

A Quote:

“On June 15, millions of tons of sulfur dioxide were discharged into the atmosphere, resulting in a decrease in the temperature worldwide over the next few years.”

D’oh.
